Road skin care

Allure magazine offers tips on taking care of your skin when you travel.

Prepare yourself: Regardless of where you're traveling, start using the products you'll be taking with you three days before you leave, to acclimate your skin. Tone down drying or potentially irritating ingredients, like alpha hydroxyl acids or retinols; wash with sulfate-free soap; and load up on creams and serums rich in emollients so your skin is well-hydrated.

At the beach: By nature, our skin loves humidity — when we're relaxing in the shade. The reality is that most of us are in and out of the water, both salt and chlorine, and washing off an SPF with an extra shower before dinner — a regimen that's tough on the skin barrier. It's important to bring a gentle, milky cleanser that won't strip lipids from the skin.

In the mountains: The most important thing you can do is protect yourself while you are outside. Mineral sunscreens are recommended, because in addition to blocking UV rays, they also block the elements. Keep a tube of Aquaphor in your coat to create a protective layer on lips and cheeks in case of harsh winds. At night, slather on a rich, creamy moisturizer.
