Vacations are meant to relax and rejuvenate us, and they usually do. However, between all the extra sugar and food indulgences, long flights, and continuous hours in the sun, your skin may tell a different story by the time you make it home.
Here are the 10 things to restore your post-vacation skin.
10 Tips to Revitalize your Skin After Vacation
Drink sufficient water per day
Hydrate – drink tons of water! Follow up this formula and drink water per day to counteract the dehydrating effects of vacation and traveling.
Age below 30：weight（kg）×40＝water per day（ml）
Age 30～55：weight（kg）×35＝water per day（ml）
Age over 56：weight（kg）30＝water per day（ml）
For example, if you weigh 60 kg and below 30, drink 60*40=2400ml of water per day.
For your morning water, drink 250ml of warm water with half of a fresh squeezed lemon in it, and even some ginger.
This will aid in flushing out toxins from your body as it works like an antiseptic for every organ, including your skin. The ginger will also settle your tummy if you have any upset from traveling.
It seems like a lot of water, but this formula is what you should drink even on normal days, but it’s hard to do. Keep this up if you can!
Second cleansing your skin
Cleanse your face using a gentle cleanser, and then use lotion with cotton to really give your skin a deep cleaning.

If you have an ocean or a swimming pool nearby, supposedly that’s even better. To aid even further in detoxification, you can also add 1 cup of Epsom salt to your bath water. This helps to draw out the impurities and will also alleviate sore muscles. You can’t go wrong with just a nice bubble bath either.

6. Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Get some zzz’s
Do some research on jet lag and getting enough sleep after crossing several time zones is a good thing (especially if traveling from West to East).
Select a flight that allows early evening arrival and stay up until 10 p.m. local time. (If you must sleep during the day, take a short nap in the early afternoon, but no longer than two hours. Set an alarm to be sure not to over sleep.)
Try to get outside in the sunlight whenever possible. Daylight is a powerful stimulant for regulating the biological clock. (Staying indoors worsens jet lag.)

Alcohol causes dehydration, bloating, and all the extra sugar can cause breakouts that you may not normally get.
You’ll notice your bloating will go down immediately, especially if you continue to drink a lot of water.

Berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries are all high in antioxidants. Also eating melons such as cantaloupe or honeydew melon are very hydrating.
Go lighter on the carbs for the rest of your meals to help reduce bloating. Eat lean proteins and lots of greens!
Exercise to get your blood flowing
Once you’re rested that is! Take your time, let your body rest, but do get back to your normal exercise routine as soon as possible.

Wash your face as soon as you get home from the gym. You don’t want to let the sweat and bacteria from the gym settle into your pores when you’re trying to get your skin back to normal.
