Your Must-Have Travel Essentials
Planning for your “first” post-Covid overseas trip? While you navigate through all your checklists and pack all your necessities, let us take care of your health so you can enjoy your well-deserved trip whilst basking in the glow of good health! Keep yourself healthy and strong throughout your trip with these easy-peasy tips!
Staying healthy while travelling by boosting your immune system before your trip. Fill in any nutritional gaps in your diet with multivitamins.
A daily multi during your trip can give you a peace of mind that your body is getting all the nutrients it needs even when you are on vacation mode.
Travelling can also stress our body and expose it to free radicals that can cause damage to cells and affect our immune system. Powerful antioxidant such as LAC MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract can help fight free radicals throughout the body to provide a natural source of protection. Its safe and unique three-way protection can also protect skin from signs of ageing, improve blood circulation and aid drainage of waste materials, as well as strengthen and retain collagen for supple and elastic skin.
#2 Manage Stomach Discomfort
While traveling, we are not always in control of our environment and what we eat. The foreign food that we eat exposes us to a variety of microbes that our body might not be familiar with. Often this can cause digestive discomfort, which can lead to the oh-too-familiar constipation or diarrhoea.
Probiotics provide beneficial bacteria that supports a healthy digestive system by keeping the harmful bacteria at bay. It keeps a healthy balance of micro flora in our gut to help manage any uncomfortable symptoms. Support your gut health and maintain a strong immune and digestive system throughout your trip with our wide range of Probiotics . For trips where you are intending to feast, we recommend the added enzyme blend for additional digestion and intestinal support or the multi-strain blend which consists of 6 unique probiotic strains for comprehensive support.
Consider bringing along digestive enzymes such as LAC GastroRX® Digest , which contains the enzymes that our bodies need to fully break down and digest our food, thus preventing indigestion and bloatedness. Pair it with probiotics for a strong gut against any digestive discomforts travelling may bring.
#3 Sleep Better
Catching a red-eye flight and need some help falling asleep on the plane, or adapting your sleep cycle to a new time zone? Travelling can affect our need to rest and cause our sleep cycles to go out of sync. Try taking melatonin to regulate your rest cycle naturally. Take it close to bedtime at your holiday destination to help your body adjust to the new time zone with ease.
#4 Ease Joint Discomfort
When we are on a holiday, chances are that we will be doing a lot of sightseeing and walking, and that can be very taxing on the joints. Consider packing in some LAC Joint Protec Xtra™ , which is formulated with ingredients such as glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM that can help lubricate your joints and ease any discomfort. Fish oil supplements are also a great add-on as Omega-3 fatty acids help relief any joint discomfort, and doubles up as a supplement for your heart, brain and skin health.
#5 Nourish Your Skin
The low humidity when travelling on an airplane and the change in climate of your holiday location can put your skin under stress. Consider bringing along collagen supplements such as LAC Taut® Rejuvenate+ , which packs 13,000mg of premium collagen with added AG complex to firm, hydrate and restore skin. Conveniently packed in small bottles, LAC Taut® Rejuvenate+ effectively plumps up fine lines and wrinkles, lift and tighten sagging skin, resulting in firmer, radiant and youthful skin for all the photos and videos you are going to take on your trip!
If you are travelling to a colder climate, remember to apply extra moisturiser and serum regularly. Bring along some rich mask sheets to quickly revitalise dehydrated and dull skin.
We hope these tips and recommendations can help build your body’s natural defences and ease some health concerns that you might have for your much awaited trip. Happy holidays and stay safe!
