If you travel a lot, you know that the hours in the air can get quite long and tedious, which is why it’s always a good idea to put them to good use. Flights are a perfect time to give your skin some love, especially if you want to combat the dry air.
How to Care in The Air
Tip #1: Bring products that don’t need to be rinsed off. Micellar water is excellent for an in-flight beauty routine since it can be applied to a cotton pad to wipe off makeup and doesn’t require water. It also leaves your skin feeling soft and clean.
Tip #2: Flying is the perfect time to bring out the travel minis and sample size products, which are necessary to comply with travel regulations. However, if you don’t already own travel size products, there is no need to buy them. You can transfer an adequate amount of a product you will need to a smaller, travel-friendly package. Bed bath and beyond sells travel size bottles individually.
Tip #3: To make your life easier when you go through security, pack your liquids in a clear bag so it’s easy to take them out.
Tip #4: A facial spray will help you freshen up. Look for one containing rosewater, toner, or mineral water. After you use the facial spray on your face and neck, apply a hydrating serum to your face. To seal in that moisture, apply moisturizer as a last step. Your skin gets very dehydrated on long flights due to the recycled air and the lack of humidity, which is why it’s essential to hydrate your skin properly.
Tip #5: A long flight is a great time to explore different kinds of sheet masks. They will nourish your face while you relax.
Tip #6: Don’t forget to take care of your hands as well. Bring a hand sanitizer with aloe and hand cream on the flight with you.
Tip #7: Take a lip balm with you. Dry, cracked lips are no fun.
Tip #8: And of course, don’t forget to drink plenty of filtered water to stay hydrated during the flight!
