Vacation Planning: Travel-based Skincare Tips

Whether you’re trying to squeeze in one last vacation before the end of summer, going on a long-weekend getaway, or are planning ahead for an upcoming holiday, a change in climate or weather conditions is known to affect your skin. The NENA Skincare team has rounded up some of our top tips on how to take care of your skin, no matter what climate you’re facing.

Skincare Tips: On an Airplane

There’s nothing like the dry conditions of an airplane to put your skin into SOS mode. The recirculated air on a plane has little moisture, so it can leave your skin feeling dry, tight, or flakey. For a quick and easy dose of hydration, bring a travel-sized hydrating mist on your flight and spritz to refresh your skin throughout the flight. 

If you’re travelling with carry-on luggage only, our NENA Clay Mask comes in a TSA-friendly 30g travel sized format, so you can keep up with your glacial clay mask routine, even while away.

Skincare Tips: For a Dry Climate 

Arizona, Joshua Tree, Napa Valley, Las Vegas…what do these popular getaway spots have in common? They all have dry and desert-like conditions; and with little to no moisture in the air, your skin will feel the impact.  If you’re headed to a city known for its arid climate, double up on hydrating products like a serum and a moisturizer. Our customers love that our NENA Toner has a serum-like texture which helps refresh, hydrate, and firm the skin.

Skincare Tips: For a Sunny Destination 

Sunshine and vacations go hand in hand. If you’re not careful with suncare, all those pool-side rays may also come with a sunburn. If your next vacation brings you to a sun-filled destination, always apply sunscreen before going outside and reapply after contact with water.  We love this article from ATTITUDE Skincare (another EWG-verified skincare brand) that educates on how to choose the best and most effective sunscreen product for you.

Another great addition to a sunny skincare routine? Aloe vera! A natural ingredient with a cooling factor, aloe vera soothes the skin and is a key ingredient in our NENA Mineral Toner and  Moisturizing Cream.  

 

Skincare Tips: For a Tropical Vacation  

If you are headed somewhere hot and tropical, have a good cleanser on hand. With humidity comes sweat, and if not cleansed thoroughly, your pores will become clogged and lead to breakouts. Our NENA Cleanser, which is made with Canadian glacial oceanic clay and glacial mineral water, helps with the removal of environmental pollutants, make-up and dead skin cells to reveal a fresh, glowing appearance.

Skincare Tips: For a Polluted City  

With the hustle and bustle of the city comes traffic. And with traffic comes pollution. If you’ll be spending any time in a big congested city like London, New York or Bangkok, you’ll want your skincare routine to include an effective cleanser and detoxifying clay mask, that’ll clear your skin of the pollutants coming into contact with your skin every single day.  Our cleansing cream was also made to remove impurities, so it’s a great addition to your skincare regimen if you’re in a big city.
