Most people enjoy traveling now and again. It gives people an excuse to get out of not only their house, but their country. People see new things and experience new cultures as they travel around the world. For all that travel can give us, it comes with its own drawbacks. One of the biggest drawbacks for those dedicated to taking care of their skin is the fact that most of the time you can’t take your full collection of skin care products. This is especially frustrating for people who favor OROGOLD products as it often makes one feel like one is doing less for their skin than they can. This is especially true for anyone fighting pigmentation issues or prone to them. Here are some tips you can remember that can help you avoid skin discolorations while traveling so you don’t feel compelled to pack everything.
Remember Your Sunscreen
One of the biggest causes of skin discoloration is sun exposure. As a result, the best thing you can do is to remember to pack your sunscreen and use it. You have plenty of options when it comes to selecting a good sunscreen, but there are rules for selecting the best. A physical blocker like zinc oxide is one of your best options for avoiding sun spots and other discolorations. Physical blockers provide thick, lasting protection even though they can be a bit harder to spread evenly. Additionally, find a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection to block out both UVA and UVB rays. This will ensure you avoid other sun damage issues. Lastly, your sunscreen should have an SPF of 30 or higher to ensure sufficient protection.
Consider a Secondary Brightening Product
Ideally, you should be able to get away with a simply brightening product for occasional use. You just shouldn’t be packing an entire set of them. The goal in taking care of your skin while traveling is to minimize needing to carry a product for every occasion. Fortunately, there are plenty of products that have skin brightening as an effect of a standard use. These include vitamin C oriented products and some exfoliators as well. Just because most of your OROGOLD products may stay at home doesn’t mean that your skin is going to be neglected. Keep a high-quality product with brightening as a secondary rather than primary effect in your travel skin care routine will help keep your skin tone even and smooth while traveling.
Another good option for keeping your skin tone even while traveling is simply to remember to dress in such a way as to protect your skin from the sun. Longer sleeves and wide hats are good ways to protect your skin. This is especially effective if you’re wearing your sunscreen as it will give your skin multiple layers of protection. If you can help it, you should also try to spend less time in the sun to ensure that you’re exposing your skin as little as possible. Remember that already existing discolorations get darker when exposed to sunlight for too long. Minimizing your exposure will prevent making already existing spots obvious and help prevent new ones from forming. This is especially true if you’re traveling to a tropical location.
Avoiding discolored skin while traveling is often as simple as remembering basic sun care tips. These helps guard against and prevent the most common causes of discolored skin from happening to you. OROGOLD’s help can go a long way, but you also need to cultivate habits to protect your skin. Try to follow these tips, avoid things you’re allergic too, and remember to have a good trip.
