Summer vacations are just around the corner for most of us and, I am sure you must be packing your bags to explore a new destination. It’s an exciting time to visit places. But wherever you go, be it beaches or hills, your skin needs to be taken care off, especially during long-haul flights and road journeys. I am sure Rati mam would be the best person to give a valuable advice since she manages to look perfect during every trip, however, hectic it might be. But, let me give you some skin care pointers for summer travel before you are all set to go!
1. Prime your makeup:
Invest in a foolproof primer. I used to think that it is an unnecessary step but, a primer provides an even canvas to work with. It prevents your makeup from melting and giving you a streaked face. So whether it is day or night, light or heavy makeup, prime your face and neck before proceeding to the next makeup steps.
2.Keep blotting papers handy:
Even women with dry skin tend to get a shine around their T-zone and forehead area after a few hours while travelling. Humidity and sun exposure take a toll even on the best makeup quality, so keep blotting tissues handy. Blot the excess oil, and your skin is set for some more time. Also, blot your face before clicking pictures to avoid looking greasy.
3.Freshen up with a mist
Spritz a hydrating mist which will freshen up your skin and also keep your skin hydrated. Just spray it to add a boost of moisture to dehydrated skin in summers. A product like Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist can easily fit in your handbag and also make you look fresh and radiant throughout the day.
4. Carry multi-tasking products and kits:
While packing, it’s advisable not to carry a bulk of products. Instead, opt for travel kits and multi-tasking products. A makeup remover plus toner, deep cleansing face wash, brightening mask should definitely be on your essentials list. Carry all-in-one items like Aloe vera gel, which can hydrate, soothe sunburns and give a clear skin.
5. Wet wipes can be your best friends:
Take your pick from the amazing variety of wet wipes available from sunscreen wipes to toning wipes. Wipe off the grime, makeup and traces of pollution and help your skin breathe freely during travelling. Also, wet wipes are extremely useful while touching up your makeup, like liquid lipsticks etc.
6. Never skip sunscreen:
A broad spectrum high protection and waterproof sunscreen is a must in summers. It helps in shielding your skin against harmful UV rays, preventing tanning and sunburns. Reapply your sunscreen every two-three hours to ensure maximum action. Waterproof sunscreen helps in enjoying the beach and long hours outdoors without fear of water or sweat washing it off very soon.
