For those who are always on the road, your skin and beauty routine could likely be paying for it. Sometimes, women forget to properly care for their skin and their face as a whole while busy doing everything else – and when you travel, your skin is exposed to pollutants and other debris which you aren’t generally used to being exposed to. Today, Lionesse has some essential beauty tips for you constant female travelers who find yourself struggling in some way or another with your current routine – or lack thereof. By following these tips, it’s a safe bet your skin will look better, and your makeup application will appear more beautiful and precise.
Don’t Wear Foundation
On the day you are set to travel, completely skip the application of foundation altogether. Especially for those flying long distances, it can be difficult to make it to an airport restroom and freshen up your product. Besides – by the time you land, your face will look dreary rather than beautiful. Opt for using a bit of primer on your face before landing, coupled with a tinted moisturizer to give you a fresh glow.
Refresh Your Face with Mineral Water
This is one many women haven’t heard of before, but rather than removing your products in a rush while on the go, simply add some of your favorite mineral water to a small spray bottle and spritz on your face to refresh your makeup and give you a healthy glow.
Keep Your Lip Balm on Hand
Varying weather conditions can make for a difficult time with dry lips. Keep your fave lip balm on hand to provide moisture to the lips as often as necessary.
Always Maintain Your Skin Care Regimen
Maintaining your skin care regimen is one of the most – if not the most – important aspects for frequent travelers. As stated above, when you travel often, your skin is constantly exposed to foreign pollutants that your skin just isn’t used to – and it can wreak havoc on your pores in the form of blackheads, acne, and excess oil production. Be sure to cleanse your face in the morning upon waking, and in the evening before bed after removing any and all of your makeup products from the skin. Moisturize once every morning with a good quality moisturizer, and once in the evening with a night cream.
If you are to be traveling for an extended period of time, you will want to make sure you complete a facial exfoliation once per week. Using a facial peeling gel will gently remove the dead skin and built-up products from the pores, leaving behind fresh, beautiful skin. In addition, you should also complete a full body exfoliation session once per week with a good quality body scrub. Be sure to work the product in small circles, gently working it across the surface of the skin, and rinse thoroughly. Follow up with a healthy dose of a good, deep hydrating unscented body lotion.
