6 Skin Care Travel Tips for Men
Buckle your seatbelts, put your tray table in the upright and locked position, and prepare for takeoff, folks. Here are six travel tips that will save your skin and your sanity no matter how far your traveling.
Your skin is exposed to all different kinds of elements when traveling. Stress and recycled air are just a few of the many demons that attack your face when you’re leaving for vacation. These inevitable conditions are bound to cause your skin to dry up. Keeping a moisturizer on hand will save you when you’re about 6 hours into your 12-hour flight and feeling like a dried up sponge.
For some of us, that stress and recycled air can cause us to produce excessive amounts of oil on our faces. This will not only leave you looking shiny but can also cause unwanted breakouts—the last thing you want when you’re on vacation.
Store oil blotting papers in your carry on bag and break them out if you’re starting to feel a little greasy. You’ll arrive looking fresh, glowing, and pimple-free.
When you’re leaving or coming back from a long trip, you’re usually in and out of sleep, causing your eyes to puff. A cold compress can be your best friend. Before you touchdown, wet a washcloth or bring disposable cloths and drape it under your eyes. This can be a relaxing way to end your trip and get your face ready for endless photo ops.
When you travel, your eyes are focused on many different things. Focusing on reading or television screens can strain your eyes and leave them feeling less than refreshed. Keep a small bottle of drops with you and apply them to your eyes in the middle or at the end of your flight for a quick pick me up for your peepers.
If you’re the type to knock out the second the plane takes off, your hair is probably a mess at the time of landing. Keep a small comb handy and some dry shampoo or baby powder if you’re susceptible to greasy hair.
If you have the opportunity to wash your face after a long flight, your skin will be forever grateful. Spending hours upon hours in a plane wrecks havoc on skin. Using a gentle cleanser to quickly get rid of all of the dirt and grime build up on your face will help keep skin looking its best.
Arrive photo ready, every time.
From the second you buy your ticket to the minute you touchdown—your skin goes through a lot. Follow these six simple tips to help you arrive looking your best no matter how long you’ve been traveling.
