Skin Care Tips for Travel

Skin Care Tips for Travel

Posted in Acne At Home Treatments by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
Keeping up your regular skin care routine can be tricky enough, but skin care routines while traveling can be nearly impossible.  There are a few skin care tips to keep in mind while you are traveling, that will have you looking your best for those vacation photos. 1. Travel size medicated acne wash:  When traveling internationally, you will often be on the plane for an entire day.  It is important to care for your skin during this time.  Patients with acne prone skin should pick up a travel size medicated acne wash (salicylic acid is a good ingredient to look for) at the drugstore before they go.  After cleansing in the airplane restroom, a non-comedogenic moisturizer should be applied, to avoid the excessive dryness that can develop after a long plane ride. 2. Makeup removing pads: After a late dinner on the beach, it is sometimes hard to force yourself to go through your normal cleansing routine.  If, at the very least, you use a makeup removal pad (Neutrogena makes a great one), you are taking an important step towards preventing the development of acne. 3. Non-comedogenic sunscreen: It is important for patients with acne-prone skin to use a sunscreen developed for acne prone skin on the face.  These sunscreens are labeled "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic."  Examples of great facial sunscreens for patients with acne-prone skin are Elta MD UV Clear and Neutrogena Healthy Defense. 4. Check with your dermatologist regarding your medications: Some acne medications and treatments can make your skin more sensitive to the sun and more likely to burn.  These medications can often be left behind while traveling.  Other medications, such as Acanya and Aczone, do not increase sun sensitivity and can be taken on vacation with you.  Conveniently, these medications (Acanya and Aczone) make spot treatments; don't be afraid to apply them twice daily to any unwanted acne flare.
