Travel Tips for Acne Sufferers

How to Treat Acne When Traveling

If you’re suffering from acne, it might be tempting to take a break from your usual acne cleansing routine when you go on vacation. I would definitely advise against that. Treating acne requires daily attention, so once you find a routine that works for you, you will definitely want to maintain it -- and that means a vacation from routine life doesn’t mean a vacation from your anti-acne routine.

Planning Ahead

With the holiday season upon us, it might be tempting to simply leave your full-sized acne products at home when you travel out of town for a few days. Don’t do this! No matter how much rearranging you need to do, find room in that suitcase for your acne products. Check to see if the products you use are available in travel sizes. Proactiv solution, a popular acne cleansing system, does come in travel size containers.

If the products that you use aren’t available in travel size, look to downsize your suitcase in other ways rather than having to settle for hotel soap. At least pack travel sizes of your hair products and other toiletries. Pack one less outfit or pair of shoes if it will free up space for the acne products you have come to rely on. Ditch the blow dryer if you have to! You wouldn’t leave home without your toothbrush, and you shouldn’t leave home without your acne treatments.

Don’t Forget the Water

While you’re traveling, try your best to still eat healthy meals and snacks. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, especially if you are traveling via the friendly skies. Sitting on an airplane for several hours be very drying for your skin and hair, so make sure you drink plenty of water.

If you’re planning any extended travel this holiday season, don’t neglect your usual skincare regime. Your skin will thank you for it when you return home. Make sure you pack your usual acne products, so that you don’t have to disrupt your usual skincare routine.
