It’s January – the time of the year when we make new travel and fitness resolutions!
From going backpacking into the woods to lounging by the mountains with a cup of piping hot chai and whatnot, our list of travel fantasies is endless especially during winters. You may think you have all the travel checklists ticked off – windbreaker, mittens, toiletries, hiking boots, etc, but there is one crucial thing that is still missing – skincare products!
Skincare is the last thing that comes to our mind when we travel but mind you, it is an absolute necessity with the ‘dry’ winter air being the first and foremost reason. Speaking of which, many people tend to think that pigmentation is a summer thing or something that occurs only during pregnancy. However, cold temperatures, decreased humidity and dry weather can also lead to the appearance of pigmentation spots. As you move towards higher altitudes, the skin barrier loses its ability to hold onto oil and water, thus, its propensity for dryness and pigmentation increases.
Nevertheless, with Minimalist’s Alpha Arbutin 2% + Hyaluronic acid 1% as a part of your daily skincare regime, you have no need to fret at all. It is one such product that has a proven record of dramatically reducing pigmentation and blemishes just within a few weeks’ time. Packed with the goodness of ingredients that have soothing and lightening properties, the serum works like a magic wand for your skin.
How Minimalist’s Alpha Arbutin 2% + Hyaluronic Acid 1% works
- Alpha Arbutin significantly inhibits melanin production that is the main cause of hyperpigmentation.
- It further reduces the degree of sun tanning to a great extent after the skin is exposed to UV Rays.
- Hyaluronic acid, owing to its ability to draw and hold water, brings moisture on your face.
Other magic ingredients infused in this serum by Minimalist include Aloe Vera Juice, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Propaediol, Ethoxydiglycol, etc. While the product is said to have lightening properties, it is not to be used as a fairness treatment.
With that said, one may not help but wonder – There are ocean full of anti-pigmentation products out there so why should I opt for this particular brand? This is because its serums are silicone, paraben and fragrance free. Moreover, the brand is utterly transparent about the ingredients it uses and how they work so that you remain aware about what you are feeding your skin with and what exactly happens beneath the layers of your skin.
Before you apply Minimalist’s Alpha Arbutin 2% + Hyaluronic Acid 1% every morning and evening, make sure that your face is thoroughly cleansed and well-moisturised. Just two or three drops will go a long way. Since it is known to reduce melanin production, following it up with a high SPF sunblock is imperative.
Now that you know everything you need to know about taking care of your skin to save it from pigmentation during winter travels, here’s to a guilt-free trip this year! Cold weather or oh so much sugar – nothing can get in the way of your skin looking and feeling its best.
