Your New-Climate Lifesavers


Your New-Climate Lifesavers

Dealing with your own native climate can be troublesome enough: frizzy hair from high altitudes, acne from humid environments, or sunburns from tropical places. While we’re mostly prepared to fight the beauty battles in our own environments, traveling to a new climate means adopting a new pattern to fit the new-climate-caused beauty concerns. We looked at some of the top travel spots, their potential beauty concerns, and some effective ways to treat them.

Woman skiing in the Alps

Skiing in the Alps

Climate Profile: dry, high-altitude, cold, windy, sunny

Hair Remedy: Leave-in conditioners, hair oils, and protective headwear like a beanies or turbans that keep your hair out of the harsh elements. For added hydration, rub some leave-in conditioner all over your scalp under your beanie!

Skin Remedy: Intensive moisturizers, facial occlusives, oil-based facial cleansers, hydrogel masks, gentle exfoliators, hydrating sunscreen, and tons of emollient lip balm. Find a multi-tasker like petroleum jelly or coconut butter and just slather it everywhere there’s a dry patch.

Makeup Remedy: Hydrating primers, cream foundation, and conditioning mascaras will give your skin a nice, healthy glow (and the cold environment will provide some natural blush!).

Beaching it in the Bahamas

Climate Profile: hot, sunny, humid, and salty

Hair Remedy: Clarifying shampoos that clean out sweat, dry shampoos that revitalize moisture-soaked hair, head scarves that keep hair product from melting onto the face, and an emollient hair oil to battle humidity-induced frizz will help you look less like you stuck your finger in a socket and more like you just exited the ocean. Bonus? Grab some sea water in a small empty spray bottle, and use it for beachy hair when you get back to the mainland.Skin Remedy: Lots of sunscreen, cooling aloe vera gel for sunburnt skin, clarifying facial soap for sweat buildup, cocoa butter for tanned skin, gel moisturizer to keep from having “oil-slick” face, and a cute hat to keep off the sun should do you good.

Makeup Remedy: Mattifying primer, powder foundation, waterproof mascara, and oil-free setting spray: the key is to avoid as much “stick” as possible.

Woman in London

Sightseeing in London

Climate Profile: Cold, humid, and rainy

Hair Remedy: Frizz-fighting shampoo, braids, twists, and other hairstyles that resist the rain (no blowouts here!), and a broad-brimmed hat to protect your hair from the drizzle.

Skin Remedy: Calming, mild facial cleanser, brightening eye cream, antioxidant-rich moisturizer, brightening sheet masks (trust us when we say “brightening”: the gloomy weather can make for dull skin).

Makeup Remedy: Waterproof everything: eyeliner, mascara, liquid lipstick, you name it. Make sure to set your makeup with a translucent setting powder as an extra layer against wetness. Add a waterproof setting spray and brave the rain!

Woman in Tokyo.

Touring in Tokyo

Climate Profile: humid, hot, and very polluted

Hair Remedy: clarifying anti-dandruff shampoo, shine-enhancing ceramide conditioner, and a serum shine spray for ultra sleek, shiny locks.

Skin Remedy: take a tip from the locals and try a double cleansing routine: remove your makeup with a facial oil, then cleanse with a foamy cleanser. You’ll feel squeaky clean! Follow up with an antioxidant-rich moisturizer to keep out pollutants, and add a heavy dose of SPF.

Makeup Remedy: have fun! Tokyo is known for their innovative makeup styles, so try some trends you see while you’re there (after all, your double-cleansing routine will be sure to take it all off). Make sure to use an antioxidant setting spray to protect your makeup from pollutants.
