tips for terrific skin while traveling

Let's face it, travel can be tough on your skin. Dry, not-so-fresh recycled air on planes, climate change, lack of sleep, jet lag... the list goes on. And ya, come to think of it, no wonder our skin breaks out when traveling!

No matter where you are, Texas or Tahiti, you need to cleanse and hydrate your skin properly. Our new travel size skin care line makes this possible all the time. The green tea & grapes creme cleanser and chamomile grapefruit moisturizer are good to go in cute little tubs, bringing you botanical beauty from wine on the road. Pack the mojito man moisture mist or lavender rose toner in convenient misting bottles in your carry-on. Spritz your face a few times throughout the flight to keep the life from being sucked out of your complexion! Guys, feel free to retreat to the bathroom if this feels like a girl-y indulgence. I guarantee you will feel refreshed and see an difference in your skin (and will probably enjoy it too!)
Don't forget the basics. A good night's sleep does wonders on so many levels. Your skin needs proper rest too, so try to get those ZZZZs. Its super easy to get dehydrated while traveling. Make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day. I also stick to drinking a glass of water for every adult beverage I consume in the evening. My face (and head) feel better the next morning.

Ladies, thoroughly remove your makeup before bed! 100% pure grapeseed oil is a great multi-use product that will do this while treating your skin. It can also be applied to irritated skin, burns, bites, and used as a head to toe moisturizer on super sensitive skin.

Speaking of burns, don't forget the sunscreen! If you're poolside, beach bound or out on the town it's a necessity. Reapply, reapply, reapply.

A little extra TLC always helps the complexion.  The custom vinotherapy mask sampler is an awesome treat to bring with you when you travel. The adorable little pouches are filled with a dry vinotherapy mask that you mix fresh at your destination. The application brush is small, easy to pack and feels absolutely luxurious. Brushing a warm mask on after a long day will make you feel like you're at the spa, even if you're hanging in your hotel room.

Take a little time to tend to your skin when you travel. Business or pleasure, dry, sallow, tired looking skin shows on a weary traveler's face.
