We hop on a plane to Alberta tomorrow - here are some of the tips that I'll be following (accept *ahem* maybe an adult beverage at the airport - ha!). Everyday life and the environment can do a number on our skin: sun, wind, harsh heaters in wintertime and cleansers that strip away the skin’s protective oil layer can leave the epidermis parched and fragile. And poor lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking too much alcohol can make it even worse.
And that’s just where skin troubles start.“When you have all that dry skin, moisture leaks out and the environment can come in,” says Dr. Katie Rodan. “Your skin gets these little fissures or tears and it gets chapped and cracked. Pollution, hot air, cold air, bacteria, pollen can get in and touch the vital live skin and that’s when you get redness and irritation.” Plus, dry skin is more prone to showing little fine lines. And dryness prevents skincare products from working as well as they could. When traveling: avoid further risk factors by giving the tips (in image) a try! Let me know which ones had you feeling better upon arrival at your destination 😃.
