If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off somewhere for a post-summer break, you may be worried about the effect that flying will have on our skin. There’s nothing worse than getting off of the plane in your exotic destination only to be plagued by dry skin and pimples from sitting in a tube full of recycled air! We’ve curated a list of products which we consider our ‘in-flight saviours’ so that you disembark looking glam and glowing:
A moisturising spritz can be a real skin-saver on a flight, especially if you’re flying long haul. Keeping this in your hand luggage and using it throughout the flight for a wash of moisture will eliminate dryness and dehydration and arnica and cucumber extracts help keep skin smooth and refreshed. It’s also great for male skin after shaving.
If you’re brave enough to sit on a plane in a face mask, this product will do absolute wonders for your skin as you fly! This mask from Decleor takes just three minutes to work, but will leave the skin smooth and even. It contains elemi and saro essential oils to help promote microcirculation and to purify and cleanse.
This cream from Elemis is designed to give skin a constant dose of moisture whilst actively helping to protect against environmental toxins. It’s a perfect base for make-up and utilises adaptive technology which adjusts to skin’s individual needs. Using this during your flight means you skin won’t ever have the opportunity to become dehydrated.
The delicate eye area can often really suffer during a flight, as the skin needs a little extra help to stay hydrated and healthy. This eye gel from Jan Marini encourages a dramatically smoother more hydrated eye area and helps reduce under-eye circles and discolouration while firming crepey skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This spritz from Dermalogica provides critical hydration while helping to relieve and defend against inflammation, whilst relieving inflammation and discomfort, helping skin recover from damage and lipid barrier breakdown. It’s perfect for use during a flight as it will deeply hydrate your skin and stop any redness which may develop as a result of dryness.
