Let’s face it… travelling is fun, but it can take a massive toll on your skin, especially if you are wearing a full face of makeup. As much as it is important to look your best, wearing the same makeup for hours until you land can be a mistake. You’ll be cramped up inside a small plane with hundreds of other people; it’s a stressful situation no matter how many times you’ve done it before. And a layer of makeup doesn’t help the situation very much.
The dry, recirculated plane air can dry out your skin and leave it susceptible to bacteria. So, by the time you get off that flight, your makeup will look like you’ve been wearing it for 12 hours, even if it’s only been two.
So our skincare experts suggest that once you have said your good-byes and are safely on board, indulge in a skincare routine. This is the secret to looking radiant and hydrated no matter how long your flight is.
Now, the trouble is that giving your skin some much-needed TLC will require some ingenuity since you won’t be allowed to carry liquid products on board. Here we have a list of our tried-and-tested favorites that can be stashed away in your handbag, and give your skin a quick makeover in the middle of a flight.
We promise you; these products are worth packing with you!
