Skin Care on the Move: KINDri’s Travel Essentials
Travel & Skin Care Essentials
Travel. Everyone’s doing it! Even vegans can travel more easily now, thanks to the help of various vegan travel-related websites and more awareness of veganism in general.
Whilst travel is great for the soul, have you ever thought about what it’s doing to your skin? In this article, we will talk about how travel can affect the protective layer surrounding your body and what you can do to prevent, mitigate and/or repair the damage.
Is Travel Bad For Skin?
Whether you’re going on holiday, travelling to an important conference, or merely heading out to the countryside for a day, travel can take its toll on our skin.
Harmful conditions can include a lack of sleep; change in your diet; travel-related stress; dust and dirt; changing weather, such as a difference in humidity or exposure to the sun; and the dry, dirty air from inside a plane’s cabin.
That’s why, the next time you travel, skin care products are essential items to add to your packing list!
KINDri’s Skin Care Travel Essentials
We’ve prepared some top tips, including some suggestions of vegan travel skin care essentials that you could use, to help you look after your skin whilst exploring the world!
1. Prepare Your Skin the Night Before
Using a night cream, such as KINDri’s Avocado Smoothie, is a powerful way to revitalize and prepare your skin for the travel ahead. Our night cream is made using a blend of organic apple stem cell and organic prickly pear cactus seed oil, which naturally stimulates the rejuvenation of your skin cells and helps to defend your skin against toxins whilst you are on the move.
2. Pack Cabin-Sized Vegan Skin Care Products
Travel-sized beauty essentials are great to have in your hand luggage, just in case you need them! Make sure to bring moisturizing products that can rehydrate your skin and rejuvenate your complexion during and after that long journey.
We recommend packing moisturizers that have lightweight formulas, such as a refreshing facial mist, because they will hydrate and uplift your skin without leaving any residue.
KINDri’s Desert Dew Face Mist is made with refreshing cactus and rose floral waters, which are infused with cucumber seed and organic witch hazel. The feather-light formula can be used during the day at any time and can even be used over makeup.
We’ve all experienced that embarrassing moment...when you are talking to someone and you’re very aware of how dry your lips and skin are. That’s when a super-moisturizing skin-healing balm will save the day, such as KINDri’s Cactus & Rose Healing Beauty Balm.
This amazingly refreshing vegan beauty essential can be used anywhere that needs immediate deep hydration, including chapped lips, heels, and elbows. The beautifully blended avocado oil, organic prickly pear cactus oil, and shea butter work by healing and hydrating the skin. The perfect travel companion for those dry skin emergencies!
3. Stay Hydrated
Approximately 50-70% of our body mass is made up of water. H2O is widely used within our bodies and is, therefore, essential to its proper functioning. It helps deliver nutrients, maintains skin moisture and replenishes skin tissue.
Whilst travelling, people often don’t drink enough water (usually to stop themselves from constantly having to climb over their sleeping travel companions to use the facilities), which can wreak havoc on their skin. To overcome the arid conditions of a flight and ultimately avoid damaging your skin, follow these flight attendants’ tips on how to drink more water and stay hydrated.
4. And Cleanse...
Your journey has finished and your skin is feeling tired and dirty. How do you recover? Cleanse of course! After you travel, make sure you cleanse your skin thoroughly, to get rid of all the grit and build-up of grease.
Use a product such as our Orange Almond Cleansing Oil to purify and condition your skin. Its high content of Vitamin E (from the prickly pear cactus seed oil and sweet almond oil) will help neutralize those nasty airborne pollutants and toxins that your skin encountered whilst travelling. Additionally, the cactus oil contains flavonoids that calm any inflammation of the skin, restoring the vitality of your complexion.
