Stop Skin's Travel Troubles

Wherever your travels may take you, it's crucial to prep your skin beforehand for what it will encounter during your trip. You want to create a balance with treatments and products to build skin's strength so it won't go haywire in a different climate.

If you don't prepare your skin for changes, it will "think" it's in danger, and consequently, sebaceous activity will increase. For example, oily skin will think it's dried out, leading to more oil production and possibly breakouts; dry skin, on the other hand, can become cracked and chapped, which leaves it susceptible to free radicals, bacteria and infection.

About a month before your flight, start training your skin by incorporating hydrating facials and deep-cleansing treatments into your beauty regimen. An expert pre-travel trip: if you're planning to travel to a warm climate, avoid heavy or highly concentrated vitamin C products, abrasive exfoliation, and photosensitizing ingredients.
