Skin care might be thrown at you in conversations every now and then, but it is nothing close to as easy as it seems. Yes, those routines might take just 10 – 20 minutes per day, but they also require a sense of determination, a steely grit and an unending source of self motivation. Skin care is something that you really cannot be lazy about. Ask anyone boasting of flawless looking skin and they would tell you about the pains they have to go through in order to ensure that their skin maintains its flawless complexion.
Here at Vine Vera, we believe in caring for the skin inside out. While we do have the right products and solutions for external skin care, internal skin care is something that no one can help you with. Internal skin care can only be taken care of with the help of regular exercise, a proper diet and a healthy lifestyle. Anyone who tells you otherwise is most probably taking you for a ride.
One of the biggest problems that most modern day women face when it comes to skin care is to maintain that same drive while traveling. Traveling has become a part of our daily schedule, with our work commitments taking us from one end of the globe to the other every now and then. When you add those few personal holidays and nothing-to-do-rest-till-you-drop days into the picture, things become even worse for your skin.
Vine Vera tried to investigate some of the best tips and tricks to take care of the skin while traveling and came up with a simple, yet long lasting, routine that can do wonders in taking care of your skin while traveling. Here are some of the tips that we thought were worth talking about.
Add juices to the picture
One of the best ways to take care of your skin internally while traveling is to add a lot of juices into your diets. Drinking up your fruit and vegetable requirements is the fastest and most hassle free way of ensuring that you get the right vitamins, nutrients and minerals that your skin requires, more so while you’re traveling. Buy several juice bottles for a long flight and make a conscious effort to avoid high calorie food items. Remember, your body might not be able to digest the higher calories during a long haul flight and this could end up make your face look swollen.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
The torments that your skin goes through in those flights is nothing new. The regulated cabin air is probably the biggest tormentor, but the fact that you’re much closer to the sun doesn’t help either. Don’t get fooled by those safe looking windows. They’re powerless in front of the UV rays of the sun. Always apply a broad spectrum SPF 30 moisturizer before leaving for the airport and make sure that you re-apply during the flight.
Be smart when it comes to make-up
The best type of make-up for a flight is to stay as natural as you possibly can. The best way of doing this is to simply put on your favorite lipstick. This not only helps you to look more energetic, it also helps to eliminate those long boring in-flight make-up routines.
Take care of your feet
Take care of your feet while traveling. The best way to offer better circulation to your feet during a long flight is to wear sandals that allow air to pass through. Soaking up your feet in warm water and essential oils for about 15 – 20 minutes can also do wonders to ensure that your feet look as beautiful as the rest of your body. Don’t forget those simple in-flight toe exercises. They can actually go a long way in preventing swelling and ensuring that your feet never feel fatigued.
Don’t stay idle
As exciting as those nothing-to-do-rest-till-you-drop moments sound, it is essential to exercise even when you’re on a holiday. If nothing else, do some yoga on a daily basis while traveling. Sweating helps your skin to breathe and it does wonders in cleansing your skin from toxic substances as well. And guess what. Exercising is one of the most overlooked skin care secrets when a person is travelling. Of course, it is always the last thing that comes to your mind when you’re on a holiday.
