Beach, don’t kill our vibe - it’s Spring Break Season!
Whether you’re booking it to the beach, rocking a road trip, or headed to your hometown, Spring break is an exciting time of the year. However, traveling can often lead to stress, lack of sleep, and changes in diet, all of which can trigger pimples and breakouts.
Here are some tips to help prevent pimples and breakouts while traveling during spring break:
1. Pack the right skincare products
Make sure to pack skincare products that are suitable for your skin type, including a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. RAF FIVE skincare staples are specially formulated to be your new favorite travel buddy!
2. Stay hydrated
Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks, alcohol, and caffeine, which can dehydrate your skin and lead to breakouts. Dehydration can also make your skin appear dull and tired.
3. Avoid touching your face
Touching your face can transfer bacteria and oil from your hands to your skin, leading to breakouts. Try to avoid touching your face as much as possible, and if you need to touch it, make sure to wash your hands first.
4. Keep your hands clean
Make sure to wash your hands regularly, especially before touching your face. You can also use hand sanitizer to keep your hands clean when soap and water are not available.
5. Get enough sleep
Lack of sleep can increase stress levels, which can trigger breakouts. Make sure to get enough sleep, ideally between 7-9 hours per night, to help prevent pimples and breakouts.
6. Eat a healthy diet
Eating a healthy diet can help prevent pimples and breakouts. Try to avoid sugary and processed foods and eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.
7. Use a clean pillowcase
Dirty pillowcases can harbor bacteria and oil, which can lead to breakouts. Make sure to use a clean pillowcase and change it regularly, especially if you are prone to acne.
8. Don't forget to remove your makeup
Sleeping in your makeup can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Make sure to remove your makeup before going to bed, and if possible, take a break from wearing makeup altogether.
9. Avoid sunburn
Sunburn can damage your skin and lead to breakouts. Make sure to wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30, like our Kick Off Hydrating Lotion! As a rule of thumb, reapply sunscreen every 2 hours if you are spending time outdoors.
10. Reduce stress
You’re on vacation, after all! Stress can trigger breakouts, so try to reduce stress as much as possible. Take breaks when you need them, practice deep breathing or meditation, and make time for activities that help you relax.
In conclusion, preventing pimples and breakouts while traveling during spring break is all about taking care of your skin, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and reducing stress. Don’t forget to add RAF FIVE to your suitcase so you can enjoy your spring break without having to worry about pimples and breakouts!
