Summer means holiday season, which can also mean long hours on planes, trains or cars. Spending time in the pressurized environment of an airplane cabin will absorb all the moisture from your skin, which leaves your skin completely dehydrated.
The summer season, for most people, means "holiday season" and it also means long hours on planes, trains, buses or cars. Spending time in these environments can "absorb" all the moisture from the skin, leaving you dehydrated.
You may also be traveling to places that have a very different environment from the one you are used to. Maybe the place you are going to has much wetter or drier air than the one you are used to at home. Moreover, travel can cause an increase in anxiety, which increases stress hormones. Higher stress levels can cause inflammation and acne breakouts.
Some simple tips to keep your skin under control during this period are:
- Prepare for trips with proper hydration.
- Consult a dermatologist before and after the holidays.
- Remember to apply SPF regularly.
- Pay attention to skin care after the trip.
