After two years of being cooped up inside our homes, Filipinos are now traveling with a vengeance. This phenomenon, coined as ‘revenge travel’ in 2021, describes the eager need to make up for lost time by going on adventures, big-splurge vacations, and seeing friends and family more often than usual.
As borders slowly reopen and restrictions start to ease, aspiring travelers have started to revisit their travel plans to make their dream destinations a reality. The urge to make up for lost time and canceled plans has been stronger than ever. Filipinos have a newfound desire to travel like never before.
However, planning for a trip can be both exciting and overwhelming. With all the preparations necessary for travel, staying fresh and keeping your hygiene in check is a must even during long hours on the road.
Ready for your revenge trip? Here are some tips to stay fresh while on the go:
Remember that less is better when packing
When packing personal necessities, Filipinos must remember that less is better. Select airplane-ready sizes (100mL or less!) to maintain your current routine like shampoo, moisturizers, makeup, and even toothpaste.
Luckily, DENTISTE’, the no. 1 premium oral brand in South Korea*, has on-the-go Travel Sets, Mini Mouthwashes, and even Breath Sprays that fit in your carry-on or even your pocket. TSA safe – guaranteed!
A lifesaver for long-haul/red-eyes flights when your mask breath gets funky and a nice pick-me-up during flights.
Skip the generic hotel toothpaste and stay fresh for your entire trip!
Stay Hydrated even when on-the-go
Whether you’re traveling on a budget or not, staying hydrated is a must, although it’s easy to forget to drink water when you’re on the go all day. Drinking water can help prevent bad breath as it helps keep your mouth clean and kill bacteria. Staying hydrated can also help you feel refreshed all day, especially when you’re at a humid destination.
Eat a well-balanced meal
When traveling, our bodies can feel tired and drained from all the activities and long hours on the road. Eating a well-balanced meal is the key to helping keep your body nourished and energized. Avoid overindulging to give your body steady levels of energy which will help you create more fun memories during your vacation.
Keep mints with you at all times
The last thing you want to happen while traveling is to run into someone you know, only to greet them with bad breath – yikes! Breath mints are handy dandy lifesavers that fit in your bag or even your pockets. While there are specialized breath mints designed for the sole purpose of keeping your breath fresh such as DENTISTE’s Love Mints, any minty candy will do.
Using Nighttime toothpaste for traveling long hours
DENTISTE’s Nighttime toothpaste is actually intended to keep our breath fresh overnight. Its all-natural formula fights bacteria and provides a minty fresh breath even after 8 hours.
Made from 14 natural extracts (ingredients like sage, peppermint, and eucalyptus) and free from harsh chemicals, DENTISTE’ Nighttime Toothpaste is part of a recommended 3-step oral ritual of brushing, flossing, and anti-bacterial rinsing. DENTISTE’ also recommends using tongue cleaners, mints, and breath sprays to ensure a full day of fresh breath.
DENTISTE’ products are available – both in full and travel size – online at BeautyMNL, Shopee, Lazada, or any major supermarkets and pharmacies.
