The cooler temperatures have arrived in full swing, and while we do miss those long, sultry days of summer, we have to admit that there’s a certain ethereal beauty to this icy season. Of course, the snow lends to Winter’s magic, but even if you live in an area with little to no snow, it’s the perfect time of year to snuggle under the blankets and indulge in Winter wonderland movies that will get you in the festive spirit!
Of course, not all of us will be homebound this Winter, and if you’re one of the adventurous souls who’ll be jetting around this frosty season then this article is for you.
Winter air is very dry and can take a huge toll on your skin. When you’re at home, it’s easy to keep your various lotions and potions in one place, but when you’re traveling it may seem a little trickier.
In this article we’ll share just seven tips that will help to keep your skin hydrated and happy on your travels, along with a few of our travel essentials!
We know how important it is to drink our 8 glasses of water a day, but in Winter we know it can be a little more difficult, especially when it seems like all those sugary lattes are calling our name!
Hydrating from the inside out, however, is key to keeping the skin cells hydrated and plump, and your skin looking its dewy best.
Spruce up your water by adding some lemon slices, berries or some fresh mint, or instead, sip on warm and comforting herbal teas, because this counts towards your total water intake. Invest in a thermos and you’ll always be able to enjoy a steaming mug of tea!
Show your hands some love
We recommend washing your hands regularly as you travel, to kill bacteria and prevent yourself from catching a cold or flu.
This constant hand washing can sap the moisture from your hands so keep them soothed and hydrated with a natural moisturizer like Rose Mira’s deluxe Sweet Coconut Body Butter, which can keep be used head to toe.
Cleanse on the go
