The Clarisonic Mia 2 is the key to keeping my skin clear while traveling!
My skin can really take a beating while traveling so I am so happy that I found a great system to keep my skin fresh, clean & clear of acne. I have been using the Clarisonic Mia 2 for the past month and my skin has never been better! I have never had horrible skin, but I have random breakouts every now and again usually around the time I am traveling.
When you travel your skin gets off its normal routine and many different factors can effect it in a negative way. Long airplane flights can make your skin very dry. Some adventures, like cave tubing in Belize or hiking an active volcano in Nicaragua, can expose your skin to a very different climates & elements than you are use to. You want to be sure that you are cleansing your pores properly and effectively. That’s where the Clarisonic Mia 2 comes in!
I have had my eye on a Clarsonic Mia 2 for quite some time because skincare is something I really love. I’m not a huge makeup person, but I love masks (like this DIY Coffee scrub & mask!) all that skincare stuff. My skin is typically oily and I can get sweaty easily. At the end of a day of traveling I want to make sure I am squeaky clean.
The first time I used the Clarisonic Mia 2 I literally was amazed at how great my skin looked and felt. Caleb even noticed a difference in my skin after a couple of days. I have been using the device with the Deep Pore Daily Cleanser foaming gel daily. The smell of this cleanser is so fresh & nice! I also have been using the Detoxifying Clay Mask twice a week. You know I love my masks! The overall glow of my skin was even and luminous. I don’t like to wear much foundation – just some spot concealer here and there if needed. So having clear skin is ideal. And Hallelujah, I have not had a breakout since using this little miracle device!
I love the fact that it comes with a little case which makes it super easy to bring with me on my travels! It protects my device from being damage while tossed about in my luggage and protects it from germs spreading on to the device. I recommend anyone to try the this skincare system. It really has been the best thing for me to keep my skin clean and clear while here, there, and everywhere!
MY TOP 3 TIPS FOR SKINCARE WHILE TRAVELING
1. Thoroughly wash your face after you are done exploring. Cleanse your skin from all the impurities that will invade your pores. Don’t just wait until the night to wash your face because that just lets the oil & bacteria settle in and get cozy likely to cause a breakout!
2. Be consistent with your routine. I can’t stress how important consistency is! When I was younger I HAD to try the new “best” skin creams & cleansers. Using a new skincare product constantly can shock your skin and lead to unhappy pores. Warning: They may rebel!
3. Use a moisturizer with SPF. Replenish your skin with a moisturizer and protect it with an SPF. You should moisturize your skin with SPF every day, but especially while traveling. SPF is so important and can protect your skin against harmful rays that may damage your skin. Keep your skin refreshed and quenched!
