How To Keep Your Skin Looking Fresh When Flying

Thu, 09/14/2017

We all start out looking absolutely gorgeous and prepped for a luxurious travel, then hours, sometimes days later, we stumble out of the airport looking dry, wrinkled, dull and a few years older.
Oh my, our poor, dried out skin!
Here are a few tips for keeping your skin looking fresh at 25,000 feet,
1. Start the night before.
Make sure you are packed and ready to go at least the day before you fly and begin your travel calm and collected.
Take time for yourself and pre-hydrate your skin with a hydrating face mask. Leave it to soak in for 20 minutes then wash off and apply a thick moisturising cream followed by a good night's sleep.
2. Forget about your foundation cream as it will only dry your skin out.
Instead use a thick day cream to moisturize and protect your skin from environmental stressors.
3. Bring a Face Mist.
Homemade Rose or Rosemary Water Mist offers the perfect solution for on-the-go instant hydration up in the air. Spritz frequently!
4. Wash your hands, constantly!
There are so many germs in Airports and on Airplanes, especially on the tray table in front of you. Bring antibacterial wipes to use on your hands so they remain clean for when you touch your face.
5. Drink lots of Water.
Bring your own water bottle and drink regularly to keep hydrated. This will also help to keep the circulation following through your body as you will need to get up out of your sit to visit the bathroom often. Just remember to use those anti bacterial wipes for your hands once you’re done.
6. Eat Well; Pre, during and post flight.
If you indulge in that fatty, greasy airline food or fill up on alcohol, your skin will react. Instead pack your own lunch with healthy snacks like nuts and fruits.
7. Use the Testers at the Airport Boutiques.
While waiting to board, during a stopover or because your flight has been delayed, it’s your opportunity to use all those gorgeous hydrating skin moisturisers. Lather on those deliciously expensive creams choosing the organic products for further skin love.

And if your flight happens to be cancelled or delayed, or your baggage is lost or damaged, make a claim with GetPaidWhenDelayed. Your skin will thank you.
