Did you know poor air quality can reduce your skin’s collagen production levels? We’ve found a treatment that may help.
When it comes to visiting places that aren’t warm and humid like the Philippines, it makes sense to tweak your skincare routine to fit the destination’s climate best.
To prevent shocking your skin due to the new environment, which can lead to irritation, redness, and itching—you can already pack the recommended products to be well-prepared.
In addition, we’ve included two treatments for your body and face for getting beach-ready and protected from city pollution. Even though travel is not a priority just yet, it’s important to know the basics of what you need to maintain healthy skin, no matter where you go.
Cold and dry weather
You can leave your sheer moisturizer at home for traveling in cold weather. Instead, opt for a thicker face cream that can lock in your skin’s moisture.
For the face, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream has a dense formula containing microalgae and caviar extract. Your skin can also stay nourished by its botanical AHAs and vitamins.
To prevent your body from itching caused by dryness, you can pack a bottle of Argentum Apothecary’s La Lotion Infinie Body Cream. The rich cream is formulated with a patented fusion of Silver Hydrosol and DNA HP. The former helps with anti-inflammation while the latter promotes cell regeneration.
Whether you’re heading to Palawan or the Maldives, getting beach ready comes with feeling confident showing off some skin. For a treatment that may boost your workout and healthy diet results, Avignon Clinic offers a non-invasive procedure through EMscupt NEO.
It claims to contract muscle fibers at intensities that aren’t achievable in voluntary workouts. Under the “extreme stress” prompted by HIFEM+ energy, these areas can adapt and result in a growth in muscle fibers and burn fat—making it two therapies combined in one treatment. The areas it can tend to are your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves.
Since poor air quality can lower your body’s collagen and elastin levels, you can do a treatment that straightens the skin. Aivee Clinic’s Aivee Protege may stimulate your collagen network using thermal waves, which can improve the skin’s texture and laxity.
For a product to pack for looking fresh during vacation, Perricone MD’s High Potency Growth Factor Firming & Lifting Serum supports skin to look more radiant. Using retinol and Hydrolyzed Egg Shell Membrane, it may lift visibly sagging skin for a more youthful effect. So you can maintain younger-looking skin even after the collagen treatment.
No matter where you go
Wherever you find yourself, sunscreen should always remain consistent in your routine. It combats skin aging, decreases the risk of skin cancer, and protects you from harmful UVB rays—which are present no matter the climate.
For “high-performance” skin protection, you can consider Sisley Paris’ Sunleya Age Minimizing Sun Care SPF50+. It includes alkekengi calyx and vitamin E, reinforcing the skin’s natural defense system. The non-greasy formula also has natural ingredients like shea butter and cucumber to keep skin supple.
