Why I Have An After Travel Self Care Routine (And you should too!)

Every time I travel I come home feeling off. Don’t get me wrong I love traveling, but I feel like I need to hit a reset button when I return home. I always notice I get home with tired skin and stringy hair so I always follow this routine to get myself back on track.

 

1. Hydrate

I never drink enough water when traveling. It’s so bad and I know I should but I don’t. As soon as I get home I up my water intake immediately. It makes my skin feel better and allows my body to start moving again and adjust to normal life.

2. Exfoliate

There’s nothing better than scrubbing off the feeling of the world once you return home. I just feel so much better taking a warm shower and making my skin feel brand new.

3. Tone

I have a bayalage soft of thing happening with my hair right now and blonde hair tends to turn brassy…especially after a week of hotel water. I always apply a toning treatment (such as a purple shampoo) to return my blonde to actual blonde.

4. Hair Mask

My hair takes a beating when I’m traveling. In an effort to pack less I’ve been using hotel shampoo’s and conditioner’s and let’s be honest…they’re usually not great. Once I’m home I throw a hair mask in as soon as I get in the shower and let it soak in while I’m doing the rest of my regular shower routine. My hair always feels so smooth and silky afterwards.

5. Moisturize

Dry skin is no fun! After I take a shower I apply a thick moisturizer (like a body butter) all over and a face cream to help my skin return to normal.

 

Once I’m finished with all these steps I feel so much better. They’re all so simple and may seem obvious but I just love the fresh feeling! Do you guys do anything special when you return from travel?
