Holiday shopping – check!
Do you see something missing in this checklist? I do!
You are missing in-flight essentials. Most of the time we don’t care about in-flight skincare products, all thanks to our holiday excitement. However, don’t be fooled by the relaxing trip lying; cabin pressure, re-cycled air, and lack of oxygen deprive your skin of the basic nutrients, leaving it dehydrated, sensitive and dull with increased chances of having a breakout! Talk about ruining your holiday pictures.
To save you from a skin crisis like this, we are bringing you some in-flight essentials which you can easily pack in your hand luggage.
After boarding the flight, it is important to remove all the make-up from your face so that you have a clear and natural texture. Sometimes we don’t remove any make-up, even if it is as little as a lipstick or mascara from our face because we want to look good throughout the flight (in case the man of our dream bumps into us on the plane). This is a big no (not the man of our dreams part, though)!
This pack of 25 dermatological wipes is small and hence easy to carry, and work perfectly on any skin type so even if you have a sensitive or intolerant skin, you need not to worry. Bioderma’s micelle solution wipes out all impurities and bacteria from your skin leaving it rejuvenated and fresh. It will not only make your face look cleaner and natural but will also nourish it by helping in rebuilding skin’s natural biological moisture barrier.
You are probably laughing at me right now because who carries a mask on a plane? But, do you want a flawless holiday skin or not?
I guess we know the answer to that!
This 100% natural mask by Peter Thomas Roth is impeccable as it helps in soothing and comforting your skin – just what we need in a five hour or longer flight. The 24K gold has anti-inflammatory capabilities which energize not only your skin but your spirit too. It would be ideal if you put it a few hours before landing so that your dull, dehydrated and dry skin is illuminated and all fine lines are minimized.
It is very easy to use and you don’t need to rinse or wash your face after removing it. You can breathe some life into your skin in 15 minutes without moving from your seat.
Puffy eyes, dark circles, crow’s feet – you all know what we are talking about because who doesn’t get these after staring at a tiny screen for hours and barely getting any good sleep.
As much as travelling is fun for our souls and bodies, it can get rather harsh for our eyes which is why it is essential to give our eyes some healthy rest and hydration.
Peter Thomas Roth’s eye patches are formulated with Hyaluronic acid which helps greatly in improving hydration and restoring your eye’s original moisture and smoothness. Its overall formula helps in reducing puffiness, and appearance of fine lines and dark circles under your eyes. It is enclosed with a spatula, making its use simple and hassle-free.
A picture-ready pout throughout the entire flight is the classic way to start your holiday but can you really pull it off with non-chapped lips?
Lips are that feature of our face that get hit by dryness first and hardest, and on a flight, our lips don’t get the humid air that they require to stay moist. Supergoop’s AcaiFusion lip balm solves this problem.
The winner of Cosmetic Executive Women Insiders’ Beauty Award, this regenerative formula along with a high SPF 30 solution makes this lip balm not only excellent as an in-flight essential but also for your holiday as well. It keeps your lips moist and saves from the harsh UV rays. Its non-sticky, non-oily texture results in a smooth, berry-scented formula with a tint of sheer pink color that makes an attractive yet, very natural looking pout.
Puffed and tired eyes are a major turn-off on the first day of a holiday especially when you are meeting someone directly at the airport. You don’t want to look drab one day and suddenly pleasant the next. You want to keep a natural look throughout your journey which is why Jack Black’s Eye Balm should be carried in your handbag during your flight.
An hour before landing, gently apply this clear and lightweight formula to your tired eyes and see an instant difference. The gel will nourish your eyes with vitamins that reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines. Its soothing ingredients will brighten, cool and hydrate your eyes.
Its rollerblade applicator makes it simple and mess-free to apply. The non-sticky texture which cools quickly gives no indication that you have applied anything on your eyes. It all looks natural and refreshed.
Before you get worried about carrying liquids on board with you, remember you can carry 100ml liquid bottles in your hand luggage. Yes, we have done our research to make your life easier.
This Pure Marula Facial Oil is a 30ml bottle of pure gorgeousness and radiance. Unlike usual oils, this non-greasy solution settles down and quickly absorbs into your skin, resulting in a lasting hydration and improved skin elasticity.
Scientifically validated and doctor endorsed oil, this nourishing oil is filled with anti-oxidants that provide our skin with the basic nutrients it needs. Its formula is free from all chemicals and heat, is hand-picked and wild harvested, making it extremely pure and suitable for all skin types.
Its dropper applicator makes it hassle-free. All you have to do is apply few drops on the palm of your hands, rub them together and pat it on your face. Massage gently if you want to relax your muscles and let them fully absorb the nutrients of this oil. This oil has many skincare benefits and can be used as a great moisturizer and protector for your skin.
