Skincare Must-haves You Need in Your Bag Pronto!
If you’re a working woman or someone who travels a lot, you know you need to be prepared for last minute puckering up. These are some essentials you should always have in your bag for clean and fresh looking skin all day everyday.
Chapped or parched lips are a sign of dehydration and should be taken care of right away. The skin of your lips is super thin and delicate, so dry weather conditions and sun exposure can easily damage it. Coat your lips with lip balm to keep your lips moisturized while you’re on the go. You can go for Burt’s Bees lip balm formulations which are made from organic ingredients.
Say hello to beauty on the go! Sheet Masks are perfect to moisturize your skin whenever it feels dry, patchy and lifeless. One of the major components of Korean beauty regime, Sheet Masks are great if you travel a lot and are short on time for lengthy skin procedures and facials. We recommend products by Korean brands Dear, Klairs and Innisfree since they have a huge range of sheet masks for different skin types.
In case you didn’t know, you’re exposed to germs and bacteria the most when travelling. You can never be sure how clean the environment is when you go to a new place so always be prepared in your defense against germs. Especially if you have kids, you have to be extra careful with their health. A good way to protect yourself from harmful bacteria is using anti-bacterial hand sanitizer and carrying it with you at all times. It also protects you from many skin infections so trust us when we say you need one right now!
Your skin won’t glow by itself so time to get your act straight. Slather on that sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that cause wrinkles, fine lines and skin cancer. Studies reveal that people below the age of 55 who used sunscreen had 24% lesser chances of developing signs of aging than non-sunscreen and occasional sunscreen users. Applying sunscreen regularly can lower chances of skin cancer and improve the quality of your skin by protecting the essential proteins such as keratin, collagen and elastin. Key ingredient to look for in a sunscreen is Titanium Oxide. It is also important to reapply sunscreen after every two hours for it
Anti-bacterial Face Wipes
For people who are always on the go, antibacterial face wipes are a must-have. If you wish your skin well and want to protect it from long term damage, you need to keep it clean and non-greasy. Wipes are perfect to take off your makeup and layers of product build-up. Pick one with minimum chemicals and more natural ingredients.
Long hour flights and dry weather conditions can wreak havoc on your skin. The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive and harmful pollutants in the air can damage it. Protect that part of your face with effective eye creams, in fact carry one with you whenever you’re travelling. Look for skin enhancing ingredients like Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid in your next purchase.
