Winter Getaway Essentials: A Glimpse into a Dermatologist's Luggage

January 10, 2017

 


Winter weather in Detroit likely has most of us day dreaming about a nice warm beach. Whether you're considering getting away or already booked a trip, keep in mind these travel essentials and dermatology tips that will help keep your skin protected so it doesn't ruin the trip. I hope you find these items as helpful as I do because I never vacation without them.

 

SKIN 

 

Protection from the Elements

 

Neutrogena Lip Balm with SPF 20 - the lips need sun protection too. It is certainly one of the last places one would want a skin cancer. Nonmelanoma skin cancer on the lip, such as a squamous cell carcinoma, has the highest risk of metastasizing (spreading to other sites beyond the skin) when compared to nonmelanoma skin cancers located elsewhere on the body. Neutogena's lip balm with SPF even comes in six fun shades for those who like to switch up their look while being sun safe. 

 

Aveeno Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - daily sunscreen is a must! --and so is moisturizing. So, why not reach for a product that kills two birds with one stone? Even my husband uses this particular moisturizer with SPF 365 days a year. And what's really nice about this moisturizer containing sunscreen is that it doesn't leave the skin with a chalky look.

 

Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 50+ - I love this sunscreen. It's made in the shape of a deodorant stick so it can be applied directly to the skin without using your hands, that may be covered in sand or dirt, to rub it in. 

 

Sun Hat - the bigger the brim, the better. Sun hats help provide added protection to the face as no sunscreen is 100% protective against the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays. 

 

Flip flops - use of communicable pools and resort showers without proper foot protection is the perfect way to leave a vacation with an unwanted partying gift. Avoid acquiring verruca, a.k.a. warts or tinea pedis, a.k.a. foot fungus by wearing waterproof flip flops when you can. 

 

DEET - a repellent that has at least 20 percent DEET will help keep you protected from pesky mosquitos. For more information on DEET, visit the Center for Disease Control

 

Hand sanitizer - don't risk feeling ill during or after your vacation. Hand sanitizer helps give you some defense against what can easily be shared in crowded airports and planes. 
 

Cleanser/Moisturizer/Cosmeceutical

 

Dove bar soap - it saves on having to carry any further liquids in the luggage and is one of the least drying of soaps on the market. After swimming in chlorinated pools or salt water oceans, you want to wash with a cleanser that won't cause further dryness.
