Whether you are traveling across the ocean or across the country, keeping your skin feeling fresh and bright after stepping on a airplane is a challenge, but not impossible. If you pack with a purpose, your skin can survive any journey in the sky.
Start Fresh. If going through security with a bare face is not appealing to you, then be sure to stash away some makeup remover wipes in your carry on. On the other hand, if you are alright with going au naturel, start your morning routine with a gentle, hydrating cleanser.
Keep Hydrated. From the very moment you board a plane, your skin is exposed to recycled, dry air — Combat it from the inside out. Drink lots of water and refrain from drinking soft drinks, alcohol, and coffee which can counteract your hydration efforts. A great rule of thumb is to drink one bottle of water per hour in flight. Game changer – spritz on Avène Thermal Spring Water, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and moisturized.
Get Some Rest. With sleep deprivation comes the obvious dark circles and sunken eyes. But lack of sleep can also make your skin more prone to outbreaks of acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Perhaps there is something to getting your beauty sleep.
Pack with a Purpose. Include travel-sized essentials in your carry-on and your skincare routine in your suitcase, ready to use your on your first night at your destination. If you are traveling light, be a step-ahead with a multi-benefit product like one of our favorites – Neocutis JOURNÉE Bio-restorative Day Cream that include spf, antioxidants, and active anti-aging ingredients.
