Having Post-Travel Skin Woes? We’ve Got You Covered

Post-Travel Skin Woes

Going on a vacation is great, but climate changes can wreak unnecessary havoc on our skin. But be it dry skin from that skiing trip, or sudden breakouts from (a bit) too much time at the beach, we’ve got you covered.

Sunburns

Reddened, peeling skin – A common woe among holiday beach-goers. Sunburns are highly damaging to the skin and require proper care. Avoid harsh soaps or cleansers to prevent further irritation. And as tempting as it might be, don’t – don’t – pick at your skin!

Aloe vera gel works wonders in bringing much-needed comfort to sore skin while chilling your moisturiser in the fridge helps too. But prevention is always better than cure – spending 5 minutes applying sunblock is worth the time (and agony) saved from potential sunburns!

Dry Skin

Experiencing winter overseas can, unfortunately, rob our skin of much-needed moisture, increasing the appearance of unwanted fine lines and making it more challenging to apply makeup smoothly. But what else can you do apart from spamming moisturiser every other hour or s

Temporary solutions include spraying facial mists for added hydration and drinking more water. But for a more immediate solution, hydra facials are great facial treatments for infusing hydrating serums deep into your skin, restoring that dewy glow.

Breakouts

All the time spent outdoors, especially when holidaying in a warmer climate, can lead to a buildup of sweat, dirt, and oil on our skin. Unfortunately, this creates a tremendous pore-clogging formula, leading to unwanted acne breakouts.

If you’re already experiencing a full-on breakout, don’t fret! Our medicated topical acne creams should be able to get the breakout under control relatively quickly. Opt for our facial washes containing active ingredients proven effective against acne bacteria.

Suppose you find this cycle happening pretty often due to acne-prone skin. In that case, you might want to try carbon laser peels – these are laser treatments that use carbon peels before the laser treatments, making them more effective in controlling sebum production, reducing acne inflammation, and minimising pores!

Puffy Eyes

A lack of sleep from a red-eye flight could cause water retention, making puffy eyes appear. The downside is that this can’t be covered up with makeup, so the only way to reduce its appearance is to eliminate it.

Typical hacks include putting a chilled spoon or a cold compress on each eye to help reduce puffiness.

However, this process can be sped up with radiofrequency undereye treatments, which help to clear up mild undereye puffiness while tightening skin and stimulating collagen production. And no worries, it’s safe, non-invasive, and has no downtime! Most of our patients end up falling asleep during their treatment.
