Vacation time! But have you thought what travelling can do to your skin? If you are from wet moisture fill the air of the east coast and visit casinos in Las Vegas or any of the Indian Casinos on the west coast, your skin is in for a bit of a shock. It is not something you are thinking about when you get off the plane into the hot desert sun. There are so many factors why this could cause your skin to start feeling super dry.
- When packing your bathing suit and shorts, don’t forget to pack your skincare products! Starting when you get on that plane and while you are in the air, your skin is already starting to need possibly a better set of skincare products.
- If at all possible take along with you small airline-approved bottles/jars of your favourite skincare line. A lot of what you use at home will still work while on vacation. The small bottles of products you will find in the hotel rooms are great to take home and give to your friends or family.
- Take with you one of those purse size antibacterial hand wash so that you can keep your hands germ free. They are not just for children dirty faces. Be sure to drink a lot of water while visiting anywhere that is hot. You are surprised that just drinking your 8 glasses of water a day can really help your skin!
- Even if you have only a set amount of time to visit Las Vegas the last thing you want to do is stay out all night and not roll in till the early morning. Good sleeping habits should not change just because you are on vacation. Try to get if at all possible seven or more hours of sleep at night. Besides, in Las Vegas nothing is really happening at 6:00 am for those of you without children that you are going to be missing. A lot of the vacationers with children are trying to visit all the casinos on the Strip in the early morning before the Las Vegas starts to get hot. Stay inside from the hours of 11 – 2 where it is the hottest. 104 is hot no matter if they say “Oh it’s a dry heat” doesn’t matter it is still hot!
- Children or no children while vacationing in Las Vegas you got to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of 30 or higher, even on cloudy days. At the pool taking in the rays? Don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours you’re outdoors. Use a waterproof sunscreen if you are getting in the pool. Even more, fun if you have a partner and they can rub sunscreen on your back for you.
- Don’t forget your sunglasses! Providing your eyes is just as important as protecting your skin and hair.
- Your lips need sun protection, too, so be sure to carry a product with sunscreen in it. It might also help you prevent cold sores since the sun’s UV rays can trigger flare-ups.
