We know that holiday preparations can be stressful - from organising flights and accommodation right through to ensuring you look your best for when you arrive at your destination. When it comes to beauty and skincare, everyone prepares differently - some may want to stick to a rigid routine for weeks or months beforehand, while others may wish to have cosmetic treatment to address any concerns that are bothering them, and more.
If you’re struggling to find some inspiration, or you’re not sure how you should approach beauty/aesthetic concerns and skincare before travel, take a look at our top two tips for travel skincare to help get you started.
#1 Get Your Travel Skincare Routine Ready
Whether you’re planning to continue your usual routine while on holiday, or you want to strip it back to the essentials, it’s important to consider what your travel skincare kit will look like and ensure you’ve got everything you need by the time you jet off.
One thing that’s important to think about when it comes to your travel skincare kit is the climate of your destination. If you’re travelling to another state in Australia, you’ll have more of an idea what to expect in the weather than if you’re travelling to the northern hemisphere and into the opposite season.
If you don’t want the stress of having to know what your approach will be depending on the weather, focus on keeping your skin nourished, plump and dewy no matter the time of year and include a hydration set in your travel skincare kit. This set includes a hydrating rosemary foam, rejuvenating eye cream, lipid vitamin C radiance cream and hyaluronic acid with NMF replenish and boost; luxuriously packaged by Blanc Skin.
Remember Your SPF50+
We all know the importance of a good SPF50+ sunscreen. Sunscreen helps keep your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays, whether you’re in the middle of summer or winter. So, no matter the climate you’re travelling to, an SPF50+ sunscreen is a must-have in your travel skincare kit.
Exfoliate the Skin
Exfoliation is not only a great way to help smoothen the appearance of dry and bumpy skin, but also works to prevent and treat any breakouts or clogged/inflamed pores that you may experience, even when you’re not on holiday. A smooth body exfoliating kit is a fantastic addition to your travel skincare kit, using a combination of AHAs and BHAs in a scrub and lotion to achieve your holiday best.
#2 Book Any Cosmetic Treatments in Advance
If you’ve got any aesthetic concerns that have been bothering you, and that you want to address before your next trip, it’s important to make sure you book your treatment at the right time so that your skin is looking how you envisioned it by the time you fly out. This is because some concerns are treated through multiple sessions at the clinic, while other types of treatment may take a little time to show results. We’re not talking months in advance, but if you’re a conscious planner and want to have visible results by the time you arrive at your destination, it’s best to be prepared.
If getting cosmetic treatment before a trip hasn’t crossed your mind before, there are a number of options available that can help ensure your skin feels vibrant, smooth and glowing for your holiday.
Lactic peels are used to treat a number of concerns, including hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and more. Lactic peels work to improve and smoothen the texture of your skin. If you’re opting for a lactic peel before your holiday, partner it with a peptide sheet mask (which helps to hydrate and restore the skin), before applying the finishing touches with an Omnilux LED session (which helps to accelerate your results, as well as improve skin tone and radiance). With Blanc Skin, this can be booked online as one treatment under our party prep package.
No holiday preparation would be complete without a little body sculpting. For those looking to burn fat and build muscle mass before a trip, Emsculpt is a body-contouring device that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) pulses to the muscle tissue to achieve results. These pulses generate muscular contractions, which helps the body build muscle mass and break down fat cells.
A clinical facial is a great way to revitalise the mind and body through smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, restoring skin clarity and tone, as well as hydrating the skin. Clinical facials are effective in treating concerns such as ageing, dehydration, firmness, congestion, scarring, rosacea and more. With Blanc Skin’s signature facial, industry-leading technology and techniques are used to target your specific concerns.
