Protecting skin whilst on the move…
If you’re doing overnight travel or even driving to a destination, your sleeping patterns are usually disturbed, so something you can’t plan for is rest. But try to resist the urge to reach for the coffee as the caffeine will still be kicking in far past bedtime. Instead, keep yourself topped up with water to keep your body and skin hydrated.
When travelling for business, let’s be honest, it’s unlikely that you’ll be visiting a relaxing Maldivian island (but lucky you if you are!) It’s more likely that your work will bring you to the hustle of a city centre, where pollution levels are sky high. Pollution from traffic, smoke and dust means that the particles sit on the skin, clogging pores and damaging its PH.
