Travel Beauty Tips for Acne Prone Skin

A Carry-On Guide For Acne-Prone Skin

Travel can do serious damage to your skin's equilibrium, with planes, sun exposure, and stress all contributing to a holiday breakout. But you can keep blemishes at bay during all your adventures. Travel light with these bare essentials for acne-prone skin.

  • Ms. Clean: Dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban recommends bringing along a face wash with glycolic and/or salicylic acid. Look for something with anti-inflammatory benefits, as well, like The Invisible Zinc Cleanser with 12% Glycolic ($29.75).
  • Pimple destroyer: Select a spot treatment cream with at least two and a half percent benzoyl peroxide (available at most chemists). "Benzoyl peroxide works as a preventative measure because it acts as a peeling agent, increasing skin turnover, and clearing pores of dead skin cells," Dr. Shamban explains.
  • Moisture mix: Look for anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties in your moisturiser. Some of Dr. Shamban's favourite ingredients include black cohosh extract, iris extract, zinc, and green tea.

Thanks for the tips you have given in the article.After using other expensive acne treatments and oral antibiotics I was pretty disappointed. Then I read one of the reviews on a popular health blog.I found it useful and purchased the book mentioned there. Immediately after purchasing the book I download it. I follow the simple regime and tips mentioned in the book. It was really helping and now my skin is flawless.
