The Stages of Your Skin During Holiday Travel


By Erin Noha

Traveling is hard enough, OK? It’s hard enough. The last thing you need during your holiday voyage is a lackluster complexion. It seems like the sheer act of moving (with all its changes in pressure, temperature and moisture) just sucks the life out of your face. This goes for any type of transportation, be it by plane, bus or train. Mo’ travel, mo’ problems.

Let’s go through the stages of your skin during holiday travel and see how Repechage Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray can solve your skin woes.

1. Your blind optimism overshadows any looming problems you’ll have with your skin during the holidays. Who needs face moisturizer? NOT ME!

2. As you pack, you start contemplating how many beauty products to bring. Maybe you’ll just use whatever’s lying around at your parent’s house, which usually means you’ll be putting straight up Jergens Extra Strength lotion for eczema on your face. Yeah…not a good idea.

3. Panic sets in. There are so many different activities during the holidays! How are you possibly going to be prepared for a gluten-free, vegan Christmas at your aunt’s house (whose menu and attire will certainly require free-trade, organic goods and a bare-faced “glow”), a spicy date with a high school fling AND sledding with your niece and nephew when you haven’t owned snow pants since 3rd grade? These situations call for very different types of makeup and moisturizing, people.

4. “Why are planes so small?” You raise this question as you spritz your highly concentrated perfume on the plane. Someone starts coughing—you know, in the passive aggressive way that says “Who’s the dirtbag that sprayed perfume on the plane?”

5. A desert looks better than your face right now. The foundation settles into your “smile lines” and you wish you could apply some moisturizer over it without ruining your perfect contouring.

6. The weather welcomes you to your hometown with 2 feet of snow and a whipping 23-degree wind. You could really use some lotion right about now—you can feel the windburn setting in already.

7. Your crunchy aunt recommends a new placenta face cream she’s been using. This is getting weird and uncomfortable.

8. Sledding consists of laughter, fun and the imminent windburn/sunburn that that the oh-so-unexpecting often receive after a jaunt in the winter weather and sunlight.

9. During your date, you feel hot…really hot…unnaturally hot. A quick exit to the bathroom reveals that your face contains the fiery red shade of a thousand suns. When you return, your date mentions that they have somewhere to be. Tonight’s your moment, baby, and you just got burned.

10. You find the Jergens lotion at your parents. You apply it in shame.

11. You learn your lesson. Next time you travel, a hydrating lotion or facial spray will be first on your list.

You’ll survive next season with Repechage Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray. This mist is great for refreshing your face during travel. It’s instant hydration in a bottle—you can feel the moisture soak into your skin as you spray. Simply close your eyes, mist over your entire face with four to five pumps and save your skin from the harsh effects of traveling.

This spray contains ingredients that are safe and effective: Seaweed (Laminaria Digitata & Ascophyllum Nodosum—Sea Plants) boosts moisture, Vitamin C replenishes with anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties and Gingko Biloba Extract, Aloe Vera and Orange Water reduces the appearance of fine lines and dehydration from dryness, air travel, sun or exposure to cold.

It smells so good. The scent is mild—a light, refreshing mist for all skin types that won't irritate the noses of sensitive plane passengers. You can also apply this spray on-the-go, at the beach or on the plane. It also comes in a handy travel size, which makes it an easy product to keep in your purse. Bonus: You can also apply this product over makeup!

A cool thing about this spray: many people swear by spritzing this mist before applying lotion on their hands to prevent cracks. Others have said that it also works very well on the lips too.
