Summer Travel Tips

With summer in full swing, it's crucial to adapt your skincare routine to the changing season. The combination of increased sun exposure, humidity, and outdoor activities can take a toll on your skin. Whether you’re relaxing on a beach, visiting a new city, or intentionally being quiet and removed, keep up your daily selfcare routines. It’s easier to stay on track than to get back on track.

Although travel is stimulating, it usually involves unknown variables. Here are ÀTOI’s suggestions to keep you on track no matter where and what you do.

  1. Stay Hydrated: Make sure you drink plenty of Alkaline water to help keep the system balanced. The best way to do this is to keep a water bottle with you at all times and sip on it throughout the day. Additionally, use a lightweight moisturizer that suits your skin type to provide external hydration without feeling heavy or greasy.
  2. Healthy Lifestyle Habits: Get enough sleep to allow your skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables to nourish your skin from the inside. Engage in regular exercise to improve circulation and promote a healthy complexion. When you are on the move, keep your regular healthy foods with you as a snack, that way even if you decide to indulge in something more decadent you’ll be inclined to eat less of it.
  3. Protect Your Skin from the Sun: Even if you love the sun, it’s important to remember that it is so hard on the skin. Sun protection is vital during the summer months, especially if you’re near water since the sun’s reflection can cause even more damage. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, even on cloudy days. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses can provide extra protection for your face and eyes. Remember to test your sunblock, there’s nothing worse than having a new sunblock irritate you when you’re supposed to be out enjoying the sun!
  4. Keep up with Cleansing: In the summer, your skin tends to produce more oil and sweat. It's crucial to cleanse your skin effectively but gently to avoid stripping away essential moisture. We recommend double or triple cleansing at night with ÀTOI Cleansing Milk to make sure you’re giving your skin a thorough cleanse. Consider using a gentle exfoliator like ÀTOI’s Almond Exfoliant once a week to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
  5. Keep Your Skincare Routine Simple: Simplicity is key when it comes to a skincare routine. Stick to a basic routine consisting of cleansing, moisturizing and sunscreen. Avoid using too many heavy products that can clog pores or cause congestion. Look for lightweight serums that offer hydration without overwhelming your skin. Try ÀTOI Soothing Serum or ÀTOI Revitalizing Collagen Serum for that extra boost to a glowing summer skin.

Remember, consistent care and protection are key to maintaining your skin's natural glow, even under the summer sun. Embrace these practices, and enjoy healthy and beautiful skin throughout the summer months.
