Keep reading and follow our skincare during vacation.

1.- Preparing your skin for the vacations

A few days before departure, avoid products that dry out your skin or make it more sensitive to the sun.

 

2.- Don’t forget to take care of your skin during the trip.

Pack your favorite moisturizer to accompany you and use an extra dose of it before flying, as air travel can dry out your skin. Keep your skin fresh!

Don’t forget that for your hand luggage, you will need to pack your liquid products in a resealable plastic bag (maximum 20cm × 20cm) and do not take containers larger than 100ml.

Four essential products for skincare during vacation:

  • A day cream
  • An eye contour cream
  • A moisturizing lip balm
  • Makeup remover wipes

 

3.- Pack carefully

Here is the list of the products to take along very preciously in its suitcases.

Sunscreen, band-aids, hydrocortisone cream for bug bites, calamine lotion, insect repellent, facial cleanser, body lotion and hand cream, lip balm, exfoliant, and eye drops.  Add in something to remove impurities and your favorite facial mask.

If you’re packing makeup, use water-resistant mascaras, eyeliners, and bronzers.

 

4.-   PROTECT

Apply sunscreen everywhere! Not just on the face, legs, arms, and chest. Don’t forget your ears, feet, and hands. It’s an indication not to be taken lightly; sun protection prevents skin aging. Even in the plane, it is essential to protect yourself against UVA rays coming through the windows

 

5.- Keep your hands off your face

It’s the most common mistake you always make. Touching your face with hands full of bacteria causes many skin problems.

 

6.- Keep makeup to a minimum

Adopt a minimalist look for your holiday, using makeup to enhance your eyes, lips, or cheeks, but avoid overdoing it. With heat, apply makeup to clog your skin’s pores much faster and cause pimples later.

 

7.- Drink water!

Staying hydrated from the inside out is just as important. Try to ban juices, sodas, and other sugary drinks and prefer WATER.

 

8.- Eat healthily

Eat to stay hydrated. Dehydration is the most common skin problem when traveling, so think “water” when choosing your meals. Waterlogged fruits and vegetables, soups, and fresh greens are most effective. Think cucumbers, watermelons, pineapples, celery, radishes, tomatoes, green peppers, strawberries, grapefruit, cantaloupes, oranges, lettuce, zucchini, and cabbage. It is vital to maintain a healthy and balanced diet that will be reflected in your skin.

 

Now that you know all our tips on skincare during vacation, it’s up to you to have radiant skin and to look good to illuminate Isla Mujeres. Enjoy it!
