Camping has been gaining popularity since the start of the pandemic. More people are keen on escaping the crowd by going on a camping trip at a scenic location with lush greenery and breathtaking views. Because you’ll be mostly outdoors when camping, remember to take extra care of your skin!
Packing the right skin care essentials for your great outdoors adventure is a must. That means items that shield you from skin damage caused by environmental aggressors like free radicals and UV rays. Skin care that treats dryness and even unexpected wounds should be added to your camping bag, along with everyday beauty essentials that keep your skin health in check.
Swap out the 10-step skin care routine for a quick and simple regimen on the go. Things are about to get wild, so make sure you’re well-prepared!
To Pack List:
Count yourself lucky if your usual skin care products come in travel size! For many though, our vanity probably stocks various products in different-sized containers. Here’s a list of essentials for taking care of your skin on a camping trip!
What product can easily cleanse your face of a day’s worth of sweat and grime? Micellar water! Micellar water saves you from packing makeup remover and face cleanser, as it offers both functions in one product. ROVECTIN’s Clean Marine Micellar Deep Cleansing Water thoroughly washes away makeup, oil, dirt, sweat and other impurities while hydrating skin. Bring cotton facial rounds so you can keep things clean and sanitary on your camping trip, as you might not have access to running water or a relatively clean water supply to rinse skin.
Toners help rebalance skin after a wash and wipe away remaining residue. For camping, we recommend bringing along toner pads that are soaked in essence offering various skin benefits, like gentle exfoliation. Coming in single-use sheets, often with tweezers included, toner pads are also more hygienic to use, and prevent contamination from hands.
You never know what you might encounter in the wilderness, but expect Mother Nature to present some surprises. When choosing moisturizers, go for multifunctional formulas designed to keep skin hydrated and protect the skin barrier from damaging environmental factors. Reach for a moisturizer containing antioxidants to prevent free radical damage and humectants to draw moisture to the skin. A formula infused with ceramides can protect and repair skin’s moisture barrier. Moisturizers that also have soothing ingredients, like centella asiatica extract, aloe vera extract and calendula extract, come in handy if you experience skin irritations or need to care for minor wounds. iUNIK’s Centella Calming Gel Cream is a great choice to keep skin resilient, as it offers antioxidant benefits to comfort and calm stressed-out skin.
It’d be disastrous for your skin if you go on a camping trip without sunscreen in tow. There are heaps of products that offer sun protection to prevent dark spots, sunburn and premature skin aging. Pick a broad-spectrum physical or chemical sunscreen that offers high UV protection and suits your skin type, and remember to reapply throughout the day. Opt for a lightweight product that leaves a refreshing finish free of white cast. Sun sticks are convenient for applying on the go without having to directly touch your face with your hands.
Your skin can always use a quick pick-me-up! Quench parched skin throughout the day with a simple face mist spray. You can count on face mists to supply skin with instant hydration. RNW – DER SPECIAL’s Ceramide Mist does just that on top of fortifying the skin barrier to protect skin from external stimuli.
Lip balm with SPF
Don’t forget about lip care! Bring along a trusty lip balm with SPF to prevent lips from getting chapped and damaged by UV rays. Lips are just as susceptible to harmful UV rays as the rest of the body. Lip balms in stick packaging are super convenient and hygienic to use.
To ensure you have a fun and safe camping trip, pack products that are fragrance-free, unless you want to attract some bugs and furry friends. Bring along a sun hat to limit sun exposure and dry shampoo to keep hair fresh. Bug spray or repellent is essential to protect your skin from pesky bites. Also, take at least two wash cloths with you – one to efficiently clean skin and the other to wipe off sweat.
