Sana Skincare Travel Guide.
With summer almost in full swing, we feel the urge to get out of town even more than we usually do. Something about the warm weather makes us want to pack our bags and get some much-needed rest & recharge. However, while traveling we sometimes tend to forget about finding time for our rituals. To help, we covered all the skincare bases to make this summertime season extra glow-y and relaxed.
Start your routine before you leave for the airport. Exfoliate the night before your flight and make sure to cleanse + hydrate the morning before your travels. Use a gentle face wash and face moisturizer. Bonus points: Upgrade to a SPF moisturizer to prevent UV damage while you’re in the air.
In The Air:
Being in a plane for even a short flight will zap the moisture from your skin, so you have to be proactive about staying hydrated. Water, water, and more water. Staying hydrated from the inside out is your best defense. Use a product with hyaluronic acid which is a water loving molecule that attracts and holds moisture in the skin + it’s light and non-greasy so it’s great even for the acne prone. We also recommend applying a thick night time facial moisturizer prior to boarding to ensure hydration throughout the trip. Carry along a trusty lip balm so you can quickly apply it when your lips start to feel dry and chapped - which they’re bound to thanks to the dry, stale air in the airplane cabin.
While Away From Home:
Before you go throwing every skincare product you own into your suitcase, there are a few things you need to consider. Approach travel skincare essentials like you would when packing your wardrobe. You wouldn’t bring every single item of clothing you own; just the essentials that you can easily carry. With skincare, this means paring down your routine while maintaining effectiveness. This might mean sticking to the essentials but leaving the extras behind. You’ll want to consider size and portability for carry-on luggage as well as versatility—find a balance between products that fulfill a number of different functions as well as those that are tailored to a specific need, say an eye cream or a shave kit.
Things To Do To Keep You Feeling Good While On-The-Go:
🌞 Movement: stretching, yoga, walking, or running keeps your body grounded and your mood high.
🌞 Alone time: whether it’s taking a long nap, going for a walk or to the beach with a book to recharge yourself.
🌞 Music: dancing lifts your mood like no other and can be the best therapy at times.
🌞 Gratitude: bring yourself back to the present moment and acknowledge the beauty of the now - life is your meditation.
