You’ve got your routine down, and using a system like clockwork before bed and in the morning (don’t have a routine? Check out our Bio-Clock Activation System!). Then you realize that you have a business trip (or better yet, a vacation) coming up. How portable is your routine?
Here are some tips to keep you on track.
Use Flying Friendly Bottles
When traveling by plane, you have to keep in mind that there are additional guidelines when it comes to liquids (read more here). You can bring one clear quart-sized bag of liquids, gels, creams, and aerosols in your carry-on bag, and they must be travel sized containers that are 3.4 ounces or less per item. Larger items can be included in your checked baggage, or you can use travel containers and fill them with your favorite products.
When flying particularly, it’s a great idea to keep a hand cream or moisturizer in your carry-on for long flights. Airplane air is very dry!
Bring your daily routine
Bring with you all the items you need for your daily routine, including exfoliators. Think of how great it will feel when you get to your hotel room and can exfoliate your skin to get rid of the grimy feeling from travelling!
Don’t Forget These!
When you’re travelling, you still want to make sure that you remove all of your makeup before sleeping, so don’t forget your make-up remover. Sunscreen is also a must! Christy Brinkley says that “the single most important thing you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen. Every single day, rain or shine!” The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a daily sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection and has an SPF of at least 15, and use at least SPF 30 if you’re going to be outdoors more. Our Christie Brinkley Skincare products line is designed to provide you with that broad-spectrum protection, even against infrared rays!
We can’t stress enough how important it is to stay hydrated while travelling! Drink plenty of water, and closing the air vent above your seat may help reduce the drying effects of travelling as well. If you are travelling to certain areas, make sure that you are drinking purified water (goodbye, Montezuma’s Revenge!).
Get Enough Sleep
Some people can’t sleep on long trips, others drop off before take-off. Whichever side you fall on, make sure that you get enough sleep while travelling. Not only will it help you enjoy your time away from home a little more, but it’s also vital for the skin-repair process (read more about this process here).
