Are you one of those people who travel quite frequently? Is flying a part of your job? Does jet lag and long flights take tolls on your skin? Do you envy the airhostesses who manage to look flawless whole time in a 17 hour flight? I do! Today I will be sharing some absolutely essential tips for flights. Let’s get started.
1. Water is essential
Every passenger on the plane is breathing in oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. To bring in more oxygen, fresh air is pumped into the cabin, but that’s not enough. The air at such high altitudes has very little moisture, thus making the cabin air dry. Your skin feels dehydrated. So try to consume water at regular intervals.
2. Carry light
Instead of carrying full sized beauty products in your luggage, carry travel sized or samples of products which fit in your handbag. This way you can touch up your makeup every few hours.
3. Facial mists to the rescue
A fresh spritz of rose water or any other facial spray instantly makes your skin look awake. The dryness is reduced and you feel toned and cleansed at one go. A must-have in your bag, what say?
4. Moisturize all the way
Since dryness hits you hard when you are airborne, carry your favorite moisturizer or skin butter. As the air sucks out your moisture, replenish it using what you carry. You will save yourself from putting endless packs later to restore the dry patches. Your face, hands and neck will need frequent moisturization, so be ready with your skincare goodies.
5. Sunblock is your best friend
While flying at high altitudes, you are very close to the harmful sunrays especially if you’re at the window seat. You should consider sunscreen a requirement for flying. Apply a good sunblock before boarding, and again after 3-4 hours.
6. Lip balm is your trusted aide
Lips show signs of dryness, especially if you are wearing a matte lipstick. The best way is to use a lip balm with SPF, top it with lipstick before boarding. Once in a long distance flight, apply lip balms at regular intervals. Before landing, touch up your lipstick and you are good to go.
7. Sheet masks
The sheet masks are the time traveler’s soulmate. Especially in Trans-Atlantic flights or intercontinental flights, when often all you can do is doze off, it is a great option to use a serum loaded sheet mask. Your skin will absorb the serum and you will see radiant supple skin greeting you.
8. Shield against radiation damage
Okay, so pilots are exposed to more radiation than even nuclear-plant workers, but then they spend hours on end in the cockpit. As an occasional traveler, you can temper the radiation in the plane by stocking up on antioxidant-rich snacks. Sip green tea during the flight, and opt for a kale salad and fruits over the in-flight pretzels and other sweet things. You can also find skin care products rich in Vitamins A, C, and E. A better option? Fly at night.
