Hyatt has teamed up with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Barney Kenet to provide beauty travel tips for travelers. His products are a part of Hyatt’s new upgraded, high-quality bath amenity offerings across its portfolio of brands.
- Prep an essentials bag: Keep essentials and favorites pre-packed for last-minute trips. Be sure to include band-aids for blisters, elastic ponytail holders, wide-tooth comb, bacitracin and sunscreen.
- Take it easy on the make-up: Limit your face/make up to an oil-free moisturizer, a light lip gloss and a good BB cream. Freshen up when you arrive. Mascara, eyeliner, shadow, etc. should go on at your destination.
- Be careful with your fingers: Try to keep your fingers from your face as well as out of your make up and creams. Try a spatula to get to the bottom of all of your almost empty jars.
- Pack your own food: Avoid temptation on chips, cookies and other unhealthy choices by packing your own food. I always pack two apples, carrots, almonds, sliced turkey and low-fat cheese and, if it’s a long flight, I’ll pack a “dessert” such as organic raisins, a small piece of dark chocolate and some graham crackers.
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Sip green tea, mineral water or still water. If you can’t resist coffee or glass of wine, make sure to “pre-drink” an equal amount of water to stay hydrated. It will not only keep your skin looking healthy, but you’ll feel more relaxed and less hungry.
- Fragrance free: Avoid wearing perfume or scented body creams – the recirculated air in tight crowded cabins is not the best place to share your fragrance.
- Use Aquaphor: This is a multi-tasking product! Try it in your nostrils to combat dry, germ-filled air and apply to cuticles, lips and even minor scrapes and cuts.
- Pack a damp washcloth: As a better choice than paper towels, use it to refresh your face anytime you feel dry or stressed. Keep it cool in a plastic bag with some ice.
- Breathe: Take deep breaths, turn off your electronics, screens and other digital distractions, even if you are permitted to use them. Exhale. Inhale. Do a full-body check in your mind. Draw attention to your toes, your legs and up to the top of your head. This slow scanning puts you in another place, even before you arrive at your destination.
- Stretch: Bring something to wear that you can stretch in like yoga pants, a tank, a t-shirt and tennis shoes. When you arrive in your room, find 20 minutes to stretch, but nothing strenuous. Think of lengthening your spine, releasing tension from your shoulders and neck.
