Glowing On the Go: Tips for Skincare While Traveling

These recommendations from Dr. Lancer will minimize the effects of travel stress on your skin.

Stick to your routine.

When you travel, your daily routine might be unpredictable. Whether you are in all-day meetings in a conference room or hiking in Kauai, maintaining a consistent skincare regimen helps ensure that changes in your schedule don’t translate to changes on your skin.

Travel Essentials for Face and Body has everything you need to maintain your skincare regimen in travel-friendly sizes. This set includes The Lancer Method—Polish, Cleanse, and Nourish—for your face as well as your body. You are able to polish away the dull skin created by drying travel accommodations, remove all traces of dirt and impurities left on your skin throughout your trip, and nourish and revive your skin for a visibly renewed glow. You may feel the strain of travel, but your healthy-looking skin won’t show it.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Regardless of how you travel, the stagnant air inside any vehicle is likely to dry out your skin. Air conditioning and sun exposure both cause dehydration, which can translate to dull, dry skin. Plan for extra hydration, inside and out, to compensate. While you are traveling, make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated from the inside. Provide luxurious hydration for your skin with Intensive Night Treatment, featuring Marula oil and soybean extract to bolster moisture and reduce flakiness, helping skin remain radiant and looking youthful.

Don’t forget the details.

Shakespeare said the eyes are the windows to the soul, but when you are travel-weary, your eyes may betray more than you’d like. Long hours on the road and sleeping away from home can mean minimal rest, resulting in puffy eyes and dark circles. Rely on a rich eye treatment cream, like Eye Contour Lifting Cream, to hide your fatigue. Caffeine-based agents help reduce puffiness and minimize the appearance of fine lines on the delicate skin around the eyes. Concentrated plant flavonoids reduce the appearance of dark circles, helping you appear fresh and rested no matter how much sleep you may have missed during your travels.

Treat and protect.

Once you have prepped your skin with ample hydration, you’ll want to protect it from the elements. Sheer Fluid Sun Shield SPF 30 protects the skin from damaging UV rays while fighting the appearance of photo-aging. This sunscreen not only provides sun protection, but also leaves a smooth, non-greasy finish that provides the ideal base for makeup. Protecting your skin has never looked so good.

If you do spend time in the sun, you may find that your skin in less even and you might even develop areas of overpigmentation. Thankfully, treatment products like Fade Serum Intense improve the texture and tone of your skin. LES-10 Brightening Complex and licorice root extract help reduce the look of dark spots and minimize uneven pigmentation, resulting in skin that appears noticeably healthier and more radiant.

Indulge as you indulge.

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, make sure your itinerary includes time to take care of your skin. A sheet mask, like the Lift and Plump Sheet Mask, is an ideal way to pamper your face and give yourself some much needed downtime during travel. Simply smooth the sheet mask over your clean, dry skin and relax with a magazine. After 10-15 minutes, remove the sheet mask to reveal skin that looks lifted and rejuvenated.

If you find your body is showing the telltale signs of travel, extend your skincare beyond your face and smooth on Contour Décolleté to plump the delicate skin on your neck and chest. Active ingredients like red seaweed and hyaluronic acid improve the skin’s surface texture and provide the essential hydration lost during travel.

Travel can be hard on you and your skin. Maintaining proper skincare while you travel can make all the difference in the world, so you can explore the world looking your best.
