Travel Tip: How to get glowing skin

February 3, 2020 By

There’s no getting around it… travel takes a toll on our skin.

And while I feel good about leaving town for a trip, my skin tells a different story.

But why does traveling make skin look dull and dry?

Because the conditions we travel in tend to seriously dry out our skin.

For one, the air on a plane holds almost no moisture. 

In fact, the humidity can be as low as 15%… that’s almost three times drier than the Sahara Desert. 1

And the heat vents in your car — blowing directly on your skin — can also have a serious “drying out” effect.

Plus, your car windows put you in direct sun for hours on end, drying out your skin even further.

So, taking a few minutes during your trip for an extra boost of hydration on top of your regular routine will help you arrive at your destination with a radiant, youthful glow.

That’s why I recommend traveling with a … 

Facial Mist. 

Facial Mist

It’s the perfect way to wake up your skin and get an extra burst of hydration whenever you need it.

Facial mists are super light and gentle.

Unlike a heavy moisturizer or oil which would clog up your pores if you used more than once or twice…  

You can spray facial mists as often as you want to keep your skin from drying out.

It’s also calming for your nerves and will help clear your mind — which I think everyone could use during a long trip.

And this hack is as quick as it is refreshing… taking only seconds to use!

On a long flight or drive, I recommend using yours once every one to two hours. 

Simply hold the bottle about a foot from your face, close your eyes, and give your face a couple quick mists.

When looking for a hydrating facial spray for your travels, check out the ingredients label for ingredients like glycerine and hyaluronic acid.

These are super hydrating humectants which have a natural ability to hold onto water.

If you’re flying, don’t forget to make sure the bottle is travel size… no more than 3.4 ounces.

So there you have it — it’s simple, but facial mists make such a huge difference in keeping your skin lively and glowing.
