in flight skin care tips

Wanna get away – with great skin? Whether it’s for spring break, summer vacation, or a simple weekend getaway, every time you board a plane you expose your skin to more environmental assaults than usual – which can make you look oily, dehydrated or dull when you land! It’s important to make subtle changes in your daily routine and follow the right in-flight skin care tips to prep and protect your skin as you travel.

 

1) Detoxify and strengthen

Before your trip, give your skin some extra attention. A day or two before you leave, exfoliate to remove dead skin cells. Then saturate your skin with toner and let it absorb. Finish with a hydrating and detoxifying mask like Kerafole or Advanced VitaMineral Deep Detox Mask (found in the Age-Fighting, Deep-Cleansing Facial Kit). This will detoxify and strengthen the skin for your trip.

2) Hydrate and scavenge free radicals

Ever notice how dry your skin gets after stepping off a plane? You expose your skin to dry recirculated air, pollutants, and damaging free radicals every time you fly. Apply Plump Start and Moisture x 10 the morning of your flight. Plump Start features vitamin C charged antioxidants to scavenge skin-aging free radicals and provides a continuous veil of intelligent hydration, while Moisture x 10 boosts the efficiency of your moisturizer. This is necessary to prevent moisture loss and free radical damage.

3) Refresh

Carry a Travel Size Equalizer or Travel Size Power Peptide toner with you as in-flight skin care to ensure a dewy complexion the moment you step off the plane. Spritz your face several times throughout the flight to give yourself a refreshed feeling and keep your skin hydrated and glowing.

4) Block pollution

No matter where you are traveling to, it is crucial to protect your skin from harmful pollution. Make sure to take pollution-neutralizing lightweight lotion, Remineralist Daily Moisture, with you.

 

5) Blot breakthrough shine

If you’re headed to a much warmer destination and are worried about breakthrough shine, be sure to pack Oil Control Mattifier. You can apply a thin layer to blot breakthrough oil and keep surface shine at bay. You can even dab it on throughout the day over your makeup.

6) Block harmful UV rays

A broad spectrum sunscreen should be a part of your daily routine no matter what, but it’s especially important when you plan to fly. You can absorb even more UVA and UVB rays in a plane due to the fact that you are higher in the atmosphere. Unless you want to put yourself at risk for premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and even cancer, wear SPF every day.

7) Keep up with your daily routine

Last, but not least, don’t skip your daily skin care routine just because you’re away from home. It’s even more crucial to cleanse, tone, and moisturize while traveling. Pack a Travel Light Kit to easily bring your daily skin care with you on-the-go. Our Travel Light Kits even fit the flight requirements to carry on liquids, making them the perfect in-flight skin care kits.
