Getting on a plane is exciting. Not so much for the plane ride itself—that's usually pure hell—but a plane trip means you're going somewhere. Or maybe transporting human organs. Either way, it's a blast! The problem is, planes can wreak havoc on your skin, which means you could be pulling an emergency landing in acneville.
Here are three ways to keep your skin balanced so you can arrive beautifully.
Sure, you'll get soda and snacks eventually. But it's not enough to combat the dehydration caused from recycled air and high-speed travel. Bring a full water bottle with you to the airport and finish it before going through security (you'll have to). Then, while you're waiting at the gate, refill your water bottle and drink it again.
This unfortunately means you'll have to be using the restroom on the airplane, but hey, you paid for it—may as well use it. Pre-hydrating is the best way to combat fatigue and dry skin as you travel.
Your skin is blasted with germs and a whole lot of other gross stuff as you travel, thanks to the recycled air system. As soon as you land, wash your face with a gentle cleanser using lukewarm water. It's a good idea to just take a full shower to get as many of the germs off as possible (plus, it feels good).
Washing also gently sloughs away dead skin, so you can moisturize effectively.
Your regular moisturizer isn't going to cut it. This is time to break out your face mask to restore balance and moisture to your skin. Our Biocellulose Brightening Mask is great for brightening skin and preventing wrinkles. After letting the mask sit on your face for about twenty minutes, gently discard the mask and pat the serum into your skin and neck.
Also, check the package for extra serum that you can use on your neck and décolletage.
That's it! Three steps to keeping your skin moisturized and radiant while on vacation. No matter how many layovers you have.
