When on the go, taking care of our skin can sometimes be a challenge. However, by making our own natural skincare products, we can ensure our skin stays healthy and nourished throughout our journeys. Let’s look at some of the benefits of DIY natural skincare and how we can make our own products when traveling. So, whether you’re jetting off to a tropical paradise or headed on a city adventure, you can pamper your skin naturally and effortlessly.

Importance of skincare while traveling

Taking care of our skin while traveling should be at the top of our to-do lists. That is especially the case for people with chronic skin conditions, like myself. I can have a psoriasis flareup at any time. When traveling, our skin is exposed to different factors like pollution, harsh weather conditions, climate variations, and the foods we eat. These can lead to skin drying out, becoming irritated, or having a breakout. That’s why it’s a smart idea to have a natural skincare routine in place to protect and nourish your skin. Natural skincare products are free from harmful chemicals and toxins, making them suitable for all skin types. They contain ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oils that provide deep hydration and rejuvenation. By using natural skincare products, you can maintain a healthy complexion and prevent premature aging.

When it comes to skincare while traveling, DIY (do-it-yourself) remedies can be lifesavers. Creating your own skincare products from natural ingredients is not only cost-effective but also ensures that you know exactly what goes into them. You can make simple face masks, scrubs, and moisturizers using ingredients like honey, oatmeal, and turmeric. These DIY remedies are easy to make and can be customized according to your skin’s needs. They’re also travel-friendly. Just pack them in small containers and carry them with you wherever you go.

For a limited time, Luminus ULTRA is offering their best-selling book on DIY Skincare for free. They go in-depth on skin conditions and how to treat them yourself, naturally. You’ll learn how to make you own cleansers, acne control formulas, anti-aging creams, moisturizers, and more! I don’t know how long the book is going to be free, so go ahead and grab yours soon! I have mine, and so far, everything’s going well. I’m taming my recent psoriasis flareup successfully, using Luminus ULTRA’s recommendations. Why pay a ton on toxic products that may or many not work, when I can just make my own for pennies on the dollar? I think you’ll appreciate the convenience and savings, too!

Benefits of natural skincare products

Using natural skincare products can be a game-changer for skin. They’re formulated with ingredients derived from nature, such as botanical extracts, essential oils, and vitamins. As I mentioned before, these products are free from harsh chemicals, fragrances, and synthetic ingredients that could irritate our skin. By opting for natural skincare products, we can ensure that our skin is receiving the gentle care it deserves, even while on the go. Another great thing to consider is natural skincare products are often lightweight and versatile, making them ideal for travel. The can be easily stored in travel-sized containers and carried in carry-on luggage.

In addition to being gentle on our skin, natural skincare products are environmentally friendly. Most conventional skincare products contain harmful ingredients like microplastics and toxic chemicals that negatively impact the environment and your health. By choosing natural skincare products, you’re making a conscious decision to prioritize sustainability and eco-conscious practices. You can feel good about your skincare choices while enjoying your travels. So, next time you’re packing for a trip, make sure to prioritize natural skincare products that not only benefit your skin but also contribute to a healthier planet.

DIY natural skincare recipes for travel

Creating your own natural skincare products is a great way to keep your skin happy wherever you are in the world. Maybe you’re planning to vacation in Egypt where it’s hot and dusty. Your skin’s going to get thirsty so be prepared to give it what it needs. An easy recipe you can make is a hydrating face mist. Simply mix together distilled water, rose water, and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Transfer the mixture into a travel-size (3oz) spray bottle and use it throughout the day to refresh and hydrate your skin. Another simple recipe is a moisturizing lip balm. To make this, melt together shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax in a double boiler. Once melted, add a few drops of vanilla extract or your preferred essential oil for fragrance. Pour the mixture into lip balm containers and let it cool and solidify. This homemade lip balm will keep your lips moisturized and protected from dryness while on your adventures. These DIY natural skincare recipes are not only easy to make but also provide the nourishment and protection your skin needs.

Taking care of our skin is a must. Opting for natural skincare products offers many benefits. It’s important to establish a simple, yet effective skincare routine that can be easily incorporated into our travel plans. DIY natural skincare is a convenient, budget and environmentally-friendly option. Using simple natural ingredients, we can maintain healthy, glowing skin even while traveling. So, the next time you travel, don’t forget to prioritize your skincare by incorporating natural, DIY remedies into your routine. Your skin will thank you for it!
