Summer Travel Essentials for your Skin

Make your Summer Travels even Better with Essential Oils & the Right Sunscreen

Travel season is about to start and seeing as many corners of the world as I can is definitely on my bucket list.   Whether you're traveling for work or for fun, there are some things that you've got to bring along with you!

Essential Oils

Bringing essential oils during your travels is a must for various reasons:

  • Essential oils are antibacterial and kill the germs on crowded planes and your hotel room
  • Promote a calming effect during your flight(s), perfect for those with a fear of flying!
  • Makes your hotel room smell as you good as your own home
  • Helps you get over jet lag faster by minimizing the disruption of sleep caused by crossing time zones
  • Help you stay energized through an entire day of sightseeing or business meetings
  • Relieves muscle aches and pain
  • Relieves digestive problems you may encounter during your travel

SUNSCREEN

According to Canadian Cancer Society, the sunlight in Canada is strong enough to cause skin cancer and premature aging of the skin.

Although no sunscreen can block all of the sun’s rays, it’s a must to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or above every single day, rain or shine, as an effective sun protection measure. SPF 15 sunscreen blocks 93% of UVB rays and it will erode within an hour, while SPF 30 and higher sunscreen blocks 97% of UVB rays.

Remember to re-apply your sunscreen every 2 hours if you plan to stay outside!

We recommend ELTA MD Sunscreen which is a zinc-based, broad-spectrum sunscreen.  Zinc oxide is a natural mineral that is safe even on the most sensitive skin, including post-procedure skin and even that of children 6 months or older.

Zinc oxide blocks UVB (burning) and UVA (aging) rays that have been linked to photo aging and skin cancer.  Moreover, all ELTA MD Sunscreens do not contain oxybenzone or avobenzone.  We carry a wide range of ELTA MD Sunscreen for face & body in our spa. Come in and have a look today!
