Adventure travel: Personal care products to never leave behind
Most people wouldn’t trade the adventure life for the world. Always on-the-go, hiking through beautiful parks, camping in obscure places, and getting dirty are all a part of a healthy and happy adventure travel lifestyle. Unfortunately, the gritty life comes with a few problems. Sweat builds up, loose hair becomes dreaded, and B.O. gets serious.
Luckily there are plenty of easy-to-use products to help you stay fresh during your adventures. From a dry shampoo bar to biodegradable body wipes, you’ll never worry about your appearance during adventure travel again!
The key to maintaining great skin is to create a skincare routine. It can be as simple as one or two products you use every day (cleanser and moisturizer are the basics), so anyone can do it. When you’re on the go, try the Burt’s Bees Cleansing Towelettes to wipe dirt and grime away.
Follow up with Simple’s SPF15 Moisturizer to not only nourish your skin, but protect it from the sun as well. Win-win! Facial sunscreen is crucial for anyone, especially those who are outside most of the day, to prevent skin cancer.
Admit it—you’ve missed a teeth brushing or two on a backpacking trip or while catching a red-eye. Don’t worry, though, because Colgate has created these incredibly easy Wisp Brushes. No water or rinsing required! Now there’s really no excuse for funky breath or furry whites.
It’s often hard to figure out how to pack deodorant. You can’t bring a full size in your carry-on, they have the potential to melt on a hot camping trip, and they run out at inconvenient times. That’s why this deodorant alternative is truly revolutionary. Made from pure salt, this Healthy Options Crystal Spring Deodorant is free from ingredients that might cause cancer. Au naturale, baby! Simply wet the salt stick and rub away. The salt kills odor-causing bacteria, leaving you smell free. And you can bring it with you everywhere!
Shampoo bars are truly a revelation for constant travelers. Kept in a tin like soap, these products are almost too convenient to pack. For both JR Liggetts and DR Harris’ versions of the bar, you simply wet your hair, rub the bar along your scalp, and lather like normal. No need to mess with squeeze tubes and liquid measurement restrictions on flights!
Let’s be real. After an adventure, no matter how long or short, there’s always potential that sweat will turn to stank. Do yourself a favor and get these Trailblazer Biodegradable Bamboo Outdoor Wipes for your next backpacking trip, pre-work gym session, or longhaul flight.
As with your face, applying sunscreen to your body is one of the most important things you can do. Get in the habit of applying a natural SPF, such as Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Sunscreen, before each outdoor adventure. Your body will thank you for it in the long run.
