Camille Knowles, 27, identifies as a digital nomad. The blogger, founder and author of “The Beauty of Eczema,” who has had severe eczema since she was six, is based in the U.K., but works on the go as she travels the world.

“I was always afraid to travel growing up, afraid of not having the right creams or a doctor to turn to during a flare up,” she said. “That is why I truly embrace traveling now. I am on a mission to show eczema warriors that they can travel and live their dream life.”

Camille’s top travel tips

Be prepared and stay calm.

Sleep whenever and wherever you can. A good eye mask works wonders.

Pack lots of healthy snacks and hydrate often.

Move. Motion creates positive emotion. Yoga and walking are great on-the-go activities.

Be positive. Traveling is nourishing for your soul. Read affirmations or try journaling to enhance the experience.
