Bringing Balance into my Summer Travel

New York City
June 19, 2017

As evident from my social media and content lately, this season is all about travel for Margo & Me. I’m an explorer at heart and love the experiences that come with exploration, but balancing a healthy routine – in terms of taking care of myself in general – gets difficult on the road. Before leaving on our #MMWorldTour, I was conscious of prepping for the trip with my well-being in mind, and vowed to continue that focus throughout the summer. Since I think most of us struggle with balancing health and travel, I wanted to share what works for me.

The right products

 Something that’s deserving of its own post are the Kneipp body washes and hand cream. My skin gets tired and dull when I’m not at home – airplanes, different water, new climates – and Kneipp’s products are my saviors for the situation.

Kneipp’s unique products are natural, meaning their body wash (the Endless Summer scent is divine and smells like the awakening season bottled up!) is soap-free, pH-balanced, and created with natural plant oils, so I’m only applying good-for-me wash while traveling. Their new Lady’s Mock & Shea Butter Hand Cream is always in my bag, as the highly nourishing and plant-based lotion keeps my skin feeling beyond hydrated. I love exploring their entire line, especially because they align with different seasons and always feel fitting!

I’ve found that natural and plant-based products have really changed how my skin looks and feels, no matter my location. Especially in summer conditions.

Nourishing food & water

Something that I’ll always say ‘yes’ to are local cuisines – when in Rome, you eat the pasta! However, I’m choosing nutritious meals that keep me energized. This summer, I’m dedicated to eating well and drinking as much water as possible – In between wine, of course!


Staying in motion by exploring locations is a must for me. After a long flight, there’s nothing better for than immersing yourself in the nourishing feel of Mother Nature.  I love to walk and find a park or beach to do yoga – or even stretch out, breathe, and check in with my mental state. Not only is it keeping my entire system feeling amazing, but it’s a wonderful way to experience the culture and find hidden gems among the destination!

What ways do you balance exploring or traveling? What’s your secret for feeling good on summer trips?

Thanks so much Dana, I love sharing all of my favorite travel tips!


You know when travelling it’s so important to do all these things. It can be so difficult to keep your body balanced. I find my skin feels very dull as well and I think that you have found the best solution through this lotion and body wash! (I’m looking for a good ph balanced lotion cause I think I may be having a reaction to mine! Oops!)

Also – Yes to local cuisines is always a good idea. Food that is in season and naturally grown in the place will always make your body feel better!


So glad you identified with all of these points. SO important to understand your body – especially when it comes to travel!
