It is commonly believed that travel and skin-care don’t go hand in hand, as the latter is heavily marketed under the banner of “20-minute self-care routine” and when you’re on the road, scouting your next meal, you won’t necessarily sit down for a wet pack or a gel-based scrub. This assessment is fair, however, taking care of your skin is essential—especially on those hard days of sun exposure, pollution, and food hogging. So while we push on the button on gaining new experiences, our self-care should not take a back seat.
Traveling is a passionate affair, and it involves a lot of resources. Not everyone can handle the constant change in atmosphere, dehydration, and the general anxiety of boarding one plane after the other. All of this is bound to take an additional toll on your skin, making its negligent care hit even harder.
If you wish to score the perfect selfie while you stock up on experiences, you must begin to follow a routine for skin-care during travel.
Keeping all the hassle in mind, here are a few tips for travel skincare:
#1 Keychain Your SPF
We mean it. You must take SPF with you everywhere you go and keep up with its layers throughout the day. A good touch up of your favorite sunscreen can give your skin a fighting chance against everything that the strange roads throw at your face. And don’t think that not being exposed to the sun somehow escapes the prospect of chucking your SPF daily needs. You must wear sunscreen every single day.

#2 Stock up on pocket-sized cleanser
It is essential to wash the day off your face. But travelers often depend on the things at hand to do this job. Don’t count on the hotel’s toiletries, rather carry a cleanser that restores your skin’s pH balance and prepares it for a good night’s sleep. The Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash is a gentle, effective, and powerful cleanser that will refresh your face. It won’t strip off the protective moisture barrier from the skin or disturb the pH. It will maintain the youth of your skin and help you get clear and bouncy skin.
#3 Carry some sheet masks
Sheet masks are known to pack a punch, as they carry an avalanche of skin-boosting ingredients. In addition to their amazing qualities, they are also disposable and hassle-free. You can either begin or end your day with a mask of your choice, as it makes up for a lot of steps in your usual skincare routine.
#4 Don’t touch your face as much as you’d like
The skin of your face manages to remain unscathed throughout the day, unlike your hands which carry dirt from places unimaginable. The last thing you want is to touch your face and transfer the dirt. Make sure you wash your hands at regular intervals, and even then, just try to refrain from touching your face.
#5 Fix a home for facial wipes in your purse
Ever thought washing your face could be replaceable? The biggest hack in the entire skincare industry has to be facial wipes. Not only do they remove the darkest of makeup, but they also offer temporary respite from the deepest of pores. Always be ready for a quick rundown with your favorite wet wipes when washing your face may not be an option.
#6 Refresh your face with a mist/toner
A splash on your favorite mist can set the tone for how the next hours of your face are gonna look like. You can go with the tired, sun beat face or a fresh dewy look. While traveling, carry an alcohol-free toner or mist that refreshes your skin and tightens your pores. You can try the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner that puts the moisture in every skin cell. Its alcohol-free formula will help in hydrating the skin, tightening pores, and restoring the youthful look to the skin.
#7 Chuck in the good hours of sleep
A proven way to suppress anxiety and keep the skin-issues off is to have a good night’s sleep. Catching 5-6 hours of sleep, no matter how hard on your schedule, is definitely worth it. Don’t gamble with it for efficient skincare during travel.
#8 Keep yourself hydrated
A couple of days in the water-vodka mismatch heaven can immediately start to show on your skin. You must keep a water bottle near you at all times and gallop down an ounce or two every once in a while, as the hydration glow reflects at once too.
Travelling can unravel habits, structures, and firmly practiced routines, and hence, no matter how many hacks you resort to, pay a good mind to your valuable skin and its subsequent travel skincare.
