Anticipating an upcoming trip is undoubtedly thrilling - the excitement of planning your itinerary, exploring new sights, and savoring delicious cuisine - fills the air. However, amidst all the chaos, one crucial task remains – packing your essentials.
And whilst it might be the last thing on your list, good preparation can save you from last-minute madness. Therefore, crafting a thoughtful checklist beforehand will ensure that you avoid the last-minute bathroom scramble while your taxi to the airport awaits outside.
Also, travelling exposes you to diverse environments: climate changes, air travel, environmental pollution, UV exposure, new foods, and stress, all of which can impact your skin's health, and lead to various issues, such as dryness, breakouts, and sensitivity.
This article delves into the significance of maintaining your self-care routine on the go, and it provides a practical list of travel kit essentials, to ensure that you stay healthy and radiant on the move.
