One PureWow Editor Shares Her Favorite Nighttime Travel Habits
Whether she’s climbing California’s Mount Whitney (the tallest mountain in the U.S.) or swimming through Iceland’s blue lagoons, PureWow associate editor Abby Hepworth has her travel routine down pat. Hey, when you’re forced to live out of a hiking pack in Naxos, Greece, you learn to bring only the essentials. We were curious to see how Abby keeps it all together while traveling, so we got the 411 on her go-to nighttime habits.
Do Something Physical
“Working out while traveling isn’t always realistic, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do a few squats in my hotel room before hitting the hay. Even doing something as small as calf lifts while brushing my teeth or stretching while watching TV from bed makes me feel like I did something good for myself that day.”
Lay Out Any Necessities
“If I’m traveling for business, I like to make sure I have everything all set and organized for whatever meetings or appointments I have next. If I’m traveling for fun, it’s more about making sure my digital camera is charged, I have a map handy or I know exactly where my sunscreen is so I barely have to think in the morning.”
Keep Up with Skin Care
Traveling can seriously mess with your usual routine, but you shouldn’t let it interfere with certain parts—like skin care, for starters. If you travel often like Abby does, turn to Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules. These single doses of skin-smoothing serum come in nifty little capsules that will take up barely any room in your bag. What’s more, they’re TSA-approved, so you can bring them directly onto your next flight. See? Who says you have to sacrifice beauty?
Know What Lies Ahead
“Before going to sleep, I’ll take a few minutes to double check what’s on my schedule for the next day or create an itinerary for myself: Do I want to head over to the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre tomorrow? Knowing what I have going on or what I hope to accomplish mentally preps for me for success so I can hit the ground running in the morning.”
