Being on the road, your body and skin experience challenges regardless of what type of skin you have.
You might notice your skin being more dry as usual, itchy and easily irritated while traveling, especially during and after a flight. One big reason for this is the crazy-dry-recirculated air inside the airplane, which can affect your skin even on a 1-hour flight. Not to mention the consequences of traveling for many hours and through different time and climate zones!
In recent times, the anti-inflammatory and skin calming benefits of CBD are making a relevant impact on people's travel skincare routine. Also, CBD has the potential to combat a number of skin issues, such as acne and redness. So, it does seem like incorporating CBD-infused skincare products into your travel skincare routine is the way to go if you're on the road (or in the sky)!
Now, let's look at 5 essential skincare tips you need to follow when traveling:
1. PROPER CLEANSING BEFORE YOU START YOUR TRIP
When your skin isn’t clean, the dead skin cells accumulate on its surface, leading to more breakouts and preventing your skincare and/or makeup products from being absorbed properly.
Thus, you need to cleanse your skin properly before, after, and during your trip. Use a gentle cleanser that's meant for your skin type and keep in mind the climate of the place you're visiting. And carry enough of the cleanser to last throughout your trip!
2. APPLY CBD MOISTURIZER BEFORE STARTING YOUR TRIP AND IN THE DAYS AFTER
Using a CBD moisturizer can help your skin deal with the stress of being on the road and in a different environment. Make sure that the day cream or moisturizer you're using is able to combat common skin issues — such as dull skin, redness, sensitized skin, blemishes, clogged pores — that are likely to flare up when you visit a new place and encounter a different atmosphere.
3. DON’T DITCH SPF
Even when on a plane, don't forget to use sunscreen! Up in the air, the air can often get very dry. Your smartest choice would be a face moisturizer with SPF. For example, the INDICA Premium CBD Day Cream has SPF 20!
4. STAY HYDRATED
Drink plenty of water for hydration from within and also carry a mist spray which will keep your skin refreshed throughout your trip. This will be particularly helpful if you're on a summer holiday and visiting a hot, tropical place.
5. CARRY A FACE MASK WITH YOU
Cream or sheet masks work great on long-distance flights and also after landing, when you finally get to relax in your hotel. Your skin will thank you for taking good care of it by looking fantastic.
