Nov 08, 2017 by Kail Valagoth

Travelling is one of those activities that no matter what you do or take what measure to ensure comfort is going to take a toll on your skin. Whether you are going on a domestic or overseas vacation or simply going on a road trip, your skin is definitely going to be affected by the strain of the pressure to look your absolute best. Travelling is undoubtedly stressful and can wreak havoc on your skin, however, here are a few tips and the best kept secrets to help ensure that you have perfect and flawless skin on your next trip.

Best Makeup Tips

1. Moisturize

This cannot be stressed enough. When you are travelling to a different place, no matter what the humidity is, your skin is going to get dehydrated due to the climate change and the cabin pressure in aircrafts. Use an intense hydration moisturizer to prep for a travel trip as well as carry it with you and moisturize your skin at night throughout your travel plans. Bonus tip is to use a moisturizer with a high SPF that can help reduce sun damage.

2. Skip the foundation

Foundation can be unnecessarily heavy on your skin on the day of the trip and can contribute to your face looking cakey as the foundation breaks apart. Instead, opt for a tinted moisturizer that is much lighter on your skin and if you absolutely have to use a foundation, use a primer underneath to ensure there is a protective barrier between the skin and the makeup you are applying to ensure that it lasts longer and does not dry out your skin.

3. Refreshing your makeup

If you get oily and need to freshen up your makeup while travelling, a great tip is to use a bit of oil control paper and dab your face to get rid of oils. You can use a little bit of oil control powder as well on a fluffy brush to go into the T zone and keep the shine at bay.

A good tip for if you feel too hot and stuffy is to mist your face with a spray bottle filled with mineral water to give you a hit of freshness, just be careful to use a bottle with a very fine mister to avoid your eyeliner or mascara from running.

4. Highlighter

Highlighter is your best friend when you are travelling. Using a cream or powder highlight can help your skin look radiant and healthy from within and look well-nourished and cared for. You don’t need to necessarily have a full face of makeup on to highlight, go for a subtle glow on bare skin to trick people into thinking you have flawless skin.

5. Lipsticks to use

If you are going for a trip, you may be thinking of reaching for the long-lasting ones so that you don’t have to keep reapplying, but these tend to severely dry out your lips with continued use. Instead, opt for a lip stain and top with clear gloss for that just applied look and healthier lips overall.

6. Lip Balm

With dehydration being such a big issue while travelling, do not skip on a medicated, intense moisture lip balm for your trip. If you can pack a lip scrub, it would be even better, as your lips are bound to look really dry and chapped when you travel.

7. Bronzer

One of the things we all look for when we go on a vacation is to get a tan and get that beautiful sun-kissed glow that looks healthy and beautiful, but it is not that easy to achieve a healthy tan that is even. Bronzer can really help to warm up your face and make it look healthy and beautiful. Just apply your bronzer to the perimeters of the face with a big fluffy brush and look at the absolutely gorgeous difference it makes.

8. Stop touching your face

With the sweat and dust that is bound to be an issue while travelling, touching your face is bound to be an issue that adds to the possibility of your face breaking out. While travelling, you can pick up so many different types of bacteria that can cause a number of different skin issues. If you need to touch your face to fix your makeup or some other reason, use an antibacterial hand wash to protect your skin first.
