Boost your system. Before embarking on your journey, be sure to take vitamins and supplements daily, such as Vitamin C. A healthyimmune system helps to fight off the cold and flu buzzing around you.

Exercise.While enjoying your vacation, it’s important to maintain an exercise routine. If the weather is poor, locate a local gym or an indoor class, such as Zumba, yoga, or Pilates. You’ll find that after a long flight or cramped car ride, exercising with reinvigorate your body. Be sure to wipe down your yoga mat with Savvy Travelers’ KLEAN OFFZ.

Brush. While traveling, it’s difficult to do the routine cleanings without easy access to water and toiletries.

To keep your face fresh, use facial wipes, such as TAKE OFFZ, a facial cleanser and moisturizer.

Sanitize.Traveling exposes people to numerous germs that could lead them to become sick.
According to the Journal of Environmental Health, you may be 100 more times to catch a cold on a plane than in your day-to-day life. One of the most effective ways to fight back against this is to sanitize using wipes for not only your hands, like Savvy Travelers’ KLEANZ UP, but the surfaces around you, like electronic devices.
