Taking a vacation is what we always look forward to. Nevertheless, while traveling is one of the best things we can do for our mind, it is not always the thing in keeping our skin, face, and hair in the best condition. Here are some of the top 10 Wellaholic travel beauty essentials for both guys and gals - to help you look your very best for that perfect getaway vacation selfie but yet making sure you continue looking great when you return from your holidays.
1. Lip Balm
The ever-changing climate can have a toll on your skin and especially for your lips. Moisturizing lip balms can help stop the dry and cold weather from cracking your lips. More often than not, the lip balm is also great for situations where you might have neglected drinking and hydrating. Take note to seek our a lip balm that is natural and does not contain alcohol. This is to prevent it from drying your lips out even more.
Dead skin is something that you want to take care of, while you are on the road. A good exfoliator is a travel beauty essential that can help rejuvenate your skin. The mere fact of giving your skin a good scrub will open up the pore and make them feel like you have given them a quick spa treatment.
A good moisturizer is a must regardless of whether you have oily, dry or normal skin. The moisturizer will help keep your skin smooth and vibrant. Take care of research all ingredients beforehand to make sure you are picking the most optimal formula for your skin.
4. Aloe Vera
Traveling with natural aloe vera or aloe vera gel is definitely recommended for travelers. Aloe vera has many uses from burn remedy to moisturizing the skin. This soothing gel is perfect for tropical destinations.
5. Tea Tree Oil
The Tea Tree Oil is a natural oil which comes in handy when traveling and can help salvage open skin that is prone to infections. If you suffer from blemishes, acne or dry skin, this is one essential product to carry.
6. Travel Water Bottle
The most underrated thing you can do for your skin is to keep hydrated. By carrying around a water bottle, ideally a vacuum stainless steel water bottle (good for cold climates), you can be both eco-friendly yet keep your body hydrated. Be sure to check on the drinkability of the water wherever you go.
7. Hand Cream
Dehydration is a common pet peeve both during plane travels and during the journey itself. A rich moisturizing cream is a must-have. There is something about those flights that is particularly hard on the hands. Avoid cracked skin on fingers, which can be painful by moisturizing your hands often, and most importantly right after the washing of hands.
8. Disinfecting Wet Wipes
During your trip, you will be in touch with various surfaces and items - and not all will be clean. Disinfecting wet wipes are useful as they can help you clean the surfaces and items that you get in touch. One common good practice is to use the wet wipes to wipe the utensils that you will be using just in case they have not been cleaned properly. Another good practice would be to clean the trays and multimedia controller in the planes, as they do not get the "deep cleaning" they deserve. Also, wet wipes are also useful to keep your skin cleansed and refreshed after a hot, sweaty and dusty outing.
9. Hand Sanitizer
In a French survey of travelers to countries where diarrheal illnesses are common, the people who used hand sanitizers while abroad are half as likely to have their trips spoiled by illness. "Use of hand sanitizer is highly acceptable by travelers and is associated with an incidence of traveler's diarrhea and/or vomiting," based on the report published in Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease. Bring along a portable one which you can clip onto your travel bag so that you can conveniently use it often and always.
