Before you embark on your holiday trip, explore helpful tips and advice about travel-related skin care, which snacks to pack and how to safely make the trek with your beloved pet.
Whether you’re hitting the slopes, sneaking off to the beach or planning to explore abroad this winter, travel can take a toll on your skin, hair and body – not to mention all the weather-related beauty woes that await you at your destination! Be prepared for any situation with these 5 helpful tips and tricks:
Make moisturizing a priority. This might be a no-brainer, but applying lotion isn’t always top-of-mind when you’re worried about missing your connecting flight. Keep a stash of moisturizer in your purse, carry-on and luggage so you can keep your hands, arms and face fresh, smooth and hydrated no matter where you are or what the weather the conditions happen to be.
Skip the shower. If you’re heading to a cold weather spot, you might be tempted to take a long, hot shower every day. But too much washing can contribute to frizz — and all that hot water can strip away precious natural oils from your skin and scalp. For those in-between days, be sure to pack a travel-sized dry shampoo to keep your locks looking fresh and lovely throughout your trip. (Follow these tips to fight frizz year-round.)
Fix hat hair – fast. If you’re going to be sporting a beanie or sunhat, be prepared for the dreaded “hat hair” by tucking a comb in your pocket or purse (not a brush, as they tend to promote static) and bringing along a headband or hair tie. A quick swipe of the comb and a simple, tousled braid can help you create the perfect post-headwear look.
Stay protected. This point is especially important if you’re traveling to the beach or the snow. In both situations, natural sunscreen is an absolute must. Be sure to pack one that offers broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection – unless you want premature wrinkles and fine lines, that is.
Pack multi-purpose products. You can’t (and you shouldn’t) bring your entire arsenal of beauty products with you when you travel. Instead, leave room in your luggage for shopping treasures and souvenirs by relying on multi-purpose items. My personal favorite is this versatile, tinted BB cream – it moisturizes, protects and refreshes, while offering lightweight coverage.Read more
On the road again, looks like you’re on the road–or in a plane or train–again! When it comes to travel, it’s so easy to be tempted by snacks available on the way, from fast food stops to plane food to train dining to hotel snack machines. Before you dive into that triple cheeseburger at the drive-through, mystery meat on the plane, Death by Chocolate cheesecake on the train or fake orange frosted cupcake in the snack machine, take a deep breath. Ahhhhh! Now make a resolution to treat yourself to a healthy snack to keep you going strong–with our help.
From easy-to-pack drinks to vegan cookies to nifty nuts to energy bars for dieters, we’ve got a series of super-fabulous snacks to fuel your journey (bon voyage!):
More and more, hotels and travel lodges are offering pet-friendly accommodations so you can bring your furry friends with you wherever you go. And while traveling with a pet can be stressful, if you prepare wisely it will be smooth sailing.
Start by making sure you a have safe and secure method of transport for your pet. Specific crates, carriers, and harnesses are made to keep your pet safe while traveling by car. Though you can take small dogs and cats on an airplane as your “carry-on,” it’s not well recommended to take advantage of the pet cargo option for air travel as the conditions are less than desirable.
Now, if your pet has some anxiety about traveling, it can be a big help to give them a supplement to help with anxiety and calm their nerves. These natural supplements have ingredients like thiamin to help promote relaxation and help decrease anxiety. If you have a dog like my Tyson who drools and vomits the second he gets in the car, you can imagine how much these supplements help us all.
It’s extremely helpful to bring their usual food with you, but even with the familiar cuisine, travel can cause gastrointestinal distress. If you’ve spent more time than you’d like to in an airport bathroom, you know this is true for humans as much as it is for our furry friends. Try Tag Probiotic Chews to support your dog’s digestive health.
And for the love of all things furry, do not forget to bring safe and fun dog and cat toys. From squeaky tennis balls and bones to cat nip toys and scratching pads, bringing along your pet’s favorite entertainment keeps Fido and Fifi from being destructive and you from having outrageous travel expenses. It’s a small item to pack and ensures an easier time for everyone.
Happy travels!Read more
