Travel can wreak havoc on your skin. From the change in climate to the change in routine, my skin almost always breaks out or at least looks dehydrated when I leave home for a few days.
It’s important to stay on your regular skin care routine when you travel, even if that means traveling with more products than you would like. Crucial too is staying hydrated. I find when I’m away from home I never drink enough water. And, climate changes dehydrate your body and it is immediately reflected on your face.
By the way, though many hate the sticky feeling of humidity it is actually the best climate for your skin. It keeps your skin moist and plump, and though this feeling may make you want to eschew your moisturizer, it is still entirely necessary. Using a cleanser with salicylic acid can keep perspiration from clogging your pores. One of my best tools in the treatment room is the steamer. It creates humidity which boosts circulation, increasing oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
So, go forth people. Just be sure that skin care goes with you.

Such a good reminder! It’s so easy to get out of my routine when traveling. Glad to know I’m not the only one that breaks out the second I leave home!
