Skin Savers for Happy Skin During Your Next Flight

If you're a frequent flyer, you'll know that flying can take a toll on your skin. From dry cabin air (causing dehydration), recycled cabin air containing pollutants (causing irritation), a high altitude and reduced air pressure (causing fluid build up - aka puffy eyes) to the overall combination of dry air, pollution and bacteria (causing breakouts), needless to say, it's important to take extra care of your skin before, during and after a flight! Here's how:


1. Pre-flight: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Start your flight with well-hydrated skin to help it better withstand the drying effects of cabin air. Look for a hydrating toner (without alcohol) like Harmony, apply a hyaluronic acid to dampened skin like Essence and lock everything in with a rich, creamy moisturizer like Luna Vitality before your flight

Essence: Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid & Ceramide Serum
Luna Vitality: Restoring Moisture Cream


2. In-flight: Bring your bottle of Harmony, or another facial mist, in your carry-on luggage so you can spritz your skin regularly throughout your flight. This will help to keep your skin hydrated, and leave you feeling refreshed too. When it comes to the recycled cabin air, you might also want to pack some gentle (preferably bio-degradable) facial wipes to cleanse skin of dirt, sweat and pollution. Pop on a dab of The Limelight (packed with probiotics) after cleansing, to really up the fight factor against air pollutants and bacteria too! If your eyes are feeling puffy (no doubt this will happen!), ask for some ice cubes or a cold bottle of water to compress against your eyes

3. Post-flight: After you land and you have some time, it's important to give your skin some TLC to help it recover from the likes of dehydration, irritation, puffiness or breakouts. Give your skin a proper cleanse with Purified or Clarity, or apply a decongesting mask like Refined, rehydrate with Harmony and Essence, dab some Epiphany to your under eyes and follow with either The Limelight or Luna Vitality. Keep an eye on your skin over the next few days and if you notice any blemishes arising, use Refined as a quick and easy spot treatment!

Remember, pack products to help with hydration, irritation, puffiness and decongestion. And with these simple tips, you can help to keep your skin happy during your flight and well into your holiday. Because nothing compares to carefree skin while you're on holiday. Happy travels!
