It’s important to have your favourite products on hand to apply throughout the flight. So, remember to plan ahead.
Time to strip down
To help your skin, you need to avoid wearing makeup while in an airplane. If you absolutely cannot go barefaced, you’ll need to make some compromises. Make sure to avoid any foundation or powders, as they definitely contribute to the drying of the skin. It’s the best thing you can do for your skin, especially on long flights.
Apply, apply and reapply
Make sure to have your moisturiser conveniently on hand throughout the flight. The longer the flight, the more frequently you should moisturise. Your skin will thank you.
Stay hydrated and drink
It’s easy to fend off the fear of turbulence with a glass of wine or two, but drinking water will keep your body hydrated while flying. Avoid further dehydration by skipping the alcohol and drink lots of water. Nutrition expert Susan Bowerman suggests that you should drink a glass of water for each hour you’re in the air.
Be sure to follow these easy skincare tips while traveling. Your skin will look hydrated and refreshed, and no one will ever know by looking at you that you have been on a very long journey!
