The Four Focuses of Traveling Well

Feeling your best is the most important gift you can give yourself. Beauty is not just skin deep; it shines from within. Here are some of the best travelling tips to keep you feeling beautiful.

  • Hotel shampoo can be harsh on your locks. Bring your own hair care products. Chances are your favourite brand of shampoo comes in a TSA-friendly, travel-sized kit.
  • For long, overnight flights, try a night oil for your face. They are designed to balance your skin while asleep and reducing redness from dry, cabin air.
  • Don’t forget about your hands. Grab a mini-size bottle of hand lotion and give yourself a hand massage mid-flight.
  • Always carry gentle face wipes for a no-fuss way to remove makeup as soon as you get on the flight. You’ll feel better with a naked face while flying and step off the plane feeling refreshed.
  • Water-absorbing microfiber hair turbans take up little room in your bag and will save your hair by cutting drying time.


Some people work out on vacation, and then there’s the rest of us. But if you change your mindset about what exercise can be, you’ll see that you’re already halfway there.

  • If you’re staying at a resort with a gym, use it daily. However, if you’re staying at an Airbnb or somewhere with no gym access, adjust your workout routine to your environment.
  • Sunrise Yoga on the beach is a great way to calm your busy mind and set your intentions for the day. Pack a resistance band. Stretching releases endorphins in the brain, so we feel amazing.
  • Road trips can be mentally challenging. Sitting for hours can take its toll. Plan stops along the way where you can go for a hike, have an outdoor lunch at the park, or if you’re really enthusiastic, stop by your nationally branded gym for a quick workout and stretch.
  • If you want a total body workout that will use every muscle in your body, surfs up! Even if you just paddle surf out to the waves, you’ll still be working those glutes, triceps, and abdominal muscles.
  • Go shopping! Yes, it counts. No, it’s not just an excuse to shop. Forgo all elevators; take the stairs instead. Keep a fast, steady pace as you walk around and avoid street food (sorry) and fatty drinks if you want to feel great after your shopping workout (let’s make that a thing).

Everyone wants to be stylish while traveling. But no matter how you reach your destination, comfortable is the word of the day. Be sure to plan your wardrobe ahead so you can mindfully mix and match outfits for any occasion. 

  • Dress for the destination. Find out what the locals are wearing and add your own flare. For travel wear, opt for wrinkle-free fabrics.
  • Must have clothing and accessory pieces for traveling well.
  • A long jacket can hide your pyjamas during a layover.
  • The pashmina scarf is a staple of fashion and comfort. Always carry one with you.
  • Even in the summer, chances are you’ll get cold on the flight. A pull-over cardigan can remedy those chills.
  • If you tend to be on the hot side, start with a short-sleeved fashion tee, and carry your blazer or light jacket with you.
  • Pants with a little stretch is never a bad idea. There are plenty of new materials out there that give just a bit more than they take.
  • Splurge on a super-soft, thick pair of socks that you can slip on after you slip off your shoes on the plane. You’re welcome
  • Rompers and flowy dresses provide breathability without constricting your

Lifestyle Destinations
There are as many lifestyles as there are lives and traveling should be an extension of who you are. Forgo the crowded timeshare resorts and seek out unique places. Knowing when and how to cancel a timeshare will free you to experience more of life than you ever imagined.
