I tend to break out every time I come back from a trip. Why is that?

Acne can happen at every stage of life – and especially while you’re on holiday.

Be sure to remove all your makeup at the end of the day and cleanse your face thoroughly.

What you want to bring back from your vacation are memories preserved in good photos, so don’t forget to take care of your skin.

 

How can I care for my skin on a winter holiday?

Remember: Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise to keep your skin hydrated at all times, as your skin and body may not be used to the cold.

Water-based moisturisers are ideal for normal skin while oil-based ones work best for dry skin.

The same rule applies in humid or dry climates, too.

 

Why do I always gain weight after my vacation?

I always tell my patients to enjoy themselves when they travel. However, excess indulgence in food can cause some weight gain afterwards and holidays are usually when people take a break from their regular exercise routines.

Therefore, practicing moderation when enjoying delicious food on holiday is the best way to control your postholiday weight gain.

 

I’m still tired even after enjoying a nice vacation! How can I address this?

Planning for a vacation or holiday can be very stressful because you want to ensure that everything goes according to plan. The risk: You may suffer from exhaustion prior to your actual holiday.

Get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water and eat healthy before, during and after your holiday. This will provide you with ample energy to stick to your itinerary without tiring you out too much afterwards.

 

As an air stewardess, what beauty products should I bring on my travels?

Opt for Jojoba oil, which can help soften skin, illuminate a dull complexion, nourish and moisturise cuticles and chapped lips. A broad spectrum sunblock can protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays.

If you’re interested in treatments that go beyond the skin’s surface, you can consider Amaris B. Clinic’s Bon Voyage programme. It comprises Botox and fillers treatments that are designed to reduce pigmentation and wrinkles.
