Keeping on track with skin care goals can be a challenge when traveling. Not only is sticking to a routine a challenge, but if air travel is part of the getaway, the rules for carry-on items can make things more difficult.
Skin Care Heaven, a leading online skin care store and research center based in San Diego offered some tips can make this task a breeze.
“Spring travel is a season where we don’t want to lose sight of our skin care regimen because it’s recovering from the wintertime damage of dehydrated skin,” the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said. “There are core products that we don’t want to skimp out on so we can keep our skin healthy and looking great while we are away.”
Travel skin care sets, the spokesperson said, are a great choice because most meet the carry-on TSA requirement of 3.4 ounces or less.
“And travel skin care sets really give you the opportunity to try a new skin care regimen for a fraction of the cost,” she said.
On the flipside, if someone already likes the current products they are using, they can pack the following must-haves:
“If the above products come in larger than 3.4 ounces than you need to figure out if you want to transfer a portion in travel containers for your carry-on or just put them in your checked-in luggage,” she said. “Many choose to put these skin care essentials in their carry-on just in case their luggage gets lost.”
For longer flights, the spokesperson said, it’s best to keep the lip balm, moisturizer and lotion on hand since these air travel times can be skin dehydrator moments. “If you already have dry skin, you’ll want to keep on top of it by hydrating while in flight,” she said.
Since flight regulations may regularly change, the best rule of thumb is to visit http://www.tsa.gov/ to ensure those skin care items can be cleared through TSA.
