When you’re on the road- whether it’s for work or pleasure- it can be hard to stick to your usual routines. To keep your skin in top shape while traveling, you should pack your usual products (travel-size bottles work well), stay hydrated and then eating healthy foods. Below are a few healthy snack ideas for when you’re traveling- many of which will help keep your skin in tip-top shape.

  • A handful of walnuts. Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skin’s elasticity. They also contain copper, which helps to boost collagen production. Snack on a handful of walnuts each day to improve your complexion’s texture.
  • Yogurt. Yogurt is full of proteins to help firm the skin and keep it looking smooth. Try Greek yogurt and add some nuts or blueberries for extra taste.
  • A pomegranate. You can choose the fruit itself or sip a cup of the fresh juice- both contain antioxidants that work to fight free radicals.
  • Yellow and orange veggies, like peppers. These contain carotenoids, an antioxidant that works to decrease the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Snack on these if you’re planning on traveling in a sunny climate.
  • Edamame. This tasty snack is made from soy, which is loaded with protiens and minerals to help fight hyper-pigmentation.
  • A hard boiled egg. The yolk are full of skin clearing selenium, zinc and protein (among other vitamins!)
  • Pumpkin seeds. These seeds are high in vitamin E, zinc and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which make them a good skin-clearing substitute.
