While the jet-setting lifestyle might seem glamorous in magazines, all that high altitude and dry cabin pressure can really wreak havoc on your skin. Below are a few simple tips to keep in mind and save your skin while in flight:
MIST AND TONE A spray on toner is the perfect solution to keep your skin hydrated. And many brands sell travel size mineral misters. For a less expensive alternative, just add mineral water in a spray bottle. A a drop of rose, lavender, or any essential oil will provide aromatherapy effects. SNACK HEALTHY When possible, avoid all salty foods, caffeine, and alcohol! Even if they're readily available, the price of puffing, swelling, and dehydrated skin is not worth the cause. Drink lots of water instead. SOOTHE CHAPPED LIPS Your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your face, so they're probably going to chap like crazy. A tinted lipgloss will add a little color, but a plain lip balm will do the trick in keeping your pucker moist. TINT AND HYDRATE For hydration and coverage, select a two-in-one product with the added SPF. This is especially important since you're flying closer to UV rays. MULTITASK An all-purpose moisturizer will come in handy for tackling dry skin on hands, elbows, and any other part of your skin. Just a dab of Vaseline will do the trick.
