Most of us have experienced the toll that travelling can take on our skin. From crossing time zones to sleeping in a new setting and dealing with a new climate, travel can really throw off our normal skincare routines and cause complexion issues. But don’t worry- we’ve got plenty of tips and tricks so that you can maintain your skin health while maximising your healthy and vibrant holiday glow. Follow our guide to travel skincare to find out how you can maintain glowing holiday skin this summer.
Keep It Simple and Stick to the Basics
While it may be tempting to pack all your holy grail products to go on your holiday with you, it’s best to leave your stronger retinoids and exfoliating toners behind. Make the most of your suitcase space by only packing the key essentials that you will need to keep your skin comfortable and happy.
Our essentials list consists of a good cleanser, moisturiser, and of course, sunscreen. Guinot’s Hydra Tendre Cleansing Cream removes makeup and gently cleanses the face at the same time. We love this product because it leaves the skin feeling soft and refreshed, the perfect way to rejuvenate the skin after a big day out sightseeing.
To moisturise your skin, we recommend bringing along a rich cream that will intensely nourish the skin and restore the dryness your skin from travelling. Harnessing the power of hyaluronic acids and biopeptides, Guinot’s Crème Rich Antirides rehydrates the skin and visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
Guinot’s Youth Perfect Finish Cream SPF 50 will protect your skin against UVA/UVB rays so you can enjoy your summer holidays without attracting a painful, unsightly sunburn. This multi-faceted product also releases pigment upon contact with the skin, causing it to smooth and illuminate the complexion whilst preventing sun damage.
Did you know that your skin breaks out when it lacks moisture? Climate changes combined with the harsh air conditioning of sitting in an airplane for hours can drastically dry out the skin, leaving it looking stressed and dull. Therefore, it’s highly likely that your skin is going to need a little bit of extra love and care to maintain a hydrated, radiant complexion. When you’re travelling, it’s not realistic to keep up with your everyday skincare routine. Between travel days and sightseeing, finding the time for a proper cleanse can be a push.
As a result, our skin is prone to breaking out during holidays-That’s why facial mists are so handy! They are the perfect, portable skincare product that can be used at any time of day no matter where you are. While on your flight, lightly spritz your face with Guinot’s Brume Hydra Beaute Mist to hydrate and refresh the suppleness of your skin.
The skin is our body’s largest organ- so don’t forget to drink plenty of water on your next travel adventure- keeping your body hydrated from the inside will give it that healthy holiday glow. When travelling, the skin can easily be thrown out of whack due to environmental changes. Thankfully, with the use of products like Guitnot’s Bioxygène Face Mist, you can protect your skin from external bacteria such as dust, dirt, and pollen.
This incredible face mist works as an anti-pollution shield by distributing a protective layer of film onto the skin to prevent environmental particles and impurities from entering the skin. This innovative product also stimulates cell metabolism to make the skin appear more radiant.
Make The Most of Travel-Sized Products
The last thing you want to deal with while travelling is an overpacked, overweight suitcase- Yikes! It goes without saying that travel-sized products are a great way to minimise packing space and still bring along all the essentials that you need. They’re small, compact, and tend to keep their sizes below 50ml so you don’t have to worry about going over the 100ml limit. Guinot has some of the best travel sized products, including the Mini Hydra Set which comes with mini sizes of your favourite Lait Hydra Fraicheur, Lotion Hydra Fraicheur and Crème Hydra Beaute. Even better, these wonderful products come packaged in a travel bag, ready to be taken to your holiday destination.
