Don’t Overlook: Skin Care, Health and Beauty Routine

When we travel on vacation, we like to think that every moment is going to be an experience of perfect relaxation and harmony. In truth, even if you’re having a good time and even if you’ve planned a relaxing beach vacation, there is still going to be a good amount of stress and change to one’s daily routine. It’s easy to let yourself go when traveling for fun, and some of this is a good idea. But you should be careful not to forget your skin care routine. If you don’t already have a daily skin care routine or you’re not very good about following it, think about creating one anew. Take a look at travel-based beauty tips for skin care.

It’s not uncommon for acne to rear its ugly head for the first time in a long time. One of the underappreciated triggers of acne is stress. A lot of stress leads to hormonal changes that can mimic the changes of adolescence. Indeed, any hormonal change from puberty to menopause to oral medications can cause an acne outbreak. Plus, when you’re traveling on vacation, you’re more likely to go hiking, surfing, ziplining and other activities with clothing and apparel that can rub on and irritate the skin. Windswept beaches and sailing can also lead to dried out skin or triggers extra oily skin which then creates acne. The good news is that mild forms of acne while unsightly will rarely ruin your vacation on its own.

The bad news is that acne isn’t the only thing that can pop up on your vacation. Skin rashes are also common. These, too, can be a consequence of stress, contact dermatitis, heat rash, or saltwater rash. And especially if you’re going to a tropical location, sunscreen is also a must. Here, too, it’s a good idea to plan ahead for the type of vacation you’re taking. Thinking about surfing or doing a bunch of ocean swimming? Buy and pack a rash guard before you go. Going to be outside in a humid climate? Be sure to use a wide-brim hat and skin cover to prevent heat and sun rash. And remember to relax the best you can.

To get the very best information, it’s always a good idea to seek out the experts. It’s one thing if you also need to get a regularly scheduled skin exam before your departure date, but not everybody sees a dermatologist every year. There’s no need to wait. A lot of dermatologists publish their thoughts on how to take care of your skin when traveling.

Don’t Compromise: Your Look on Vacation

Another way to use your local dermatologist isn’t just advice about the best skin care while traveling. You can also get any number of cosmetic skin treatments to make sure you’re looking your best while on vacation. This could be laser treatment, micro-needling, chemical peels, and/or skin fillers. Reduce wrinkle lines, scarring, and other blemishes that create early signs of aging. Just be sure to visit your dermatologist plenty ahead of time. One of the things you frequently need to do after these treatments is to minimize skin exposure in the days or weeks following a treatment.
