#9 After Vacation Skin Care Tips
Hydrate Frequently: The Golden Rule
For any good to happen to your skin, this rule applies everywhere. And why not? Water has so many essential qualities that our body needs to be refilled with consistently and that can never be replaced with something else. Vacationing definitely reduces your drinking water habit because you are out mostly.
So, if possible increase the intake of water by at least 1-2 glasses. Adding lemon to water or natural herbs or fruits will taste better and will hydrate also. You can also add milk in your daily diet intake to hydrate your body more. So increase the consumption of liquid substances.
Exfoliate your Body and Face
While you were traveling, either you were walking down the streets and alleys or you were chilling on a beach, your skin became more prone to dust and dirt which clog the pores of your body and face making it dull and you would definitely not want that now that you are back.
So, you must have an exfoliating face scrub and a body scrub too I suppose. Therefore, after gentle cleansing, do not forget to scrub once or twice just after returning. You can also look for these homemade DIY scrubs for better natural results.
Face Masks are Must
Applying face masks is a significant step in rejuvenating the skin because it unclogs the pores which can be left out during exfoliation along with the removal of excess oils and hydration of your skin directly. Along with that, you also need to give your skin an overnight spot treatment with lotions and liquids available in the market to protect your pores from congestion. Try these vitamin C face serum – pro face serums suggested by experts.
Take a Salt Bath

So arrange a salt bath session and relax and regenerate your energy.
Facial massage increases the blood circulation and oxygen flow to your facial muscles which helps in your skin relax and rejuvenate altogether post vacation. It also encourages collagen production which prevents any aging symptoms. It is better to also get a full body massage also as it will increase the blood circulation in your whole body and is very comforting to overcome jet-lag.
