Upgrade to first class and upgrade your face moisturisers!
The glamour of air travel is often squashed by a combination of altitude-induced bloating, jet lag and, if you’re really unlucky, deep vein thrombosis. But it is the dangerously low humidity levels on board (12% or lower) that prune the faces of unwitting travellers, leaving skin dehydrated, irritated and dull. Unfortunately, the cabin air is much the same whether you’re flying in first or economy.
If you’re flying for work and have meetings as soon as you land, then prepping the skin with a moisturiser on the flight will save yours’ and your skins life!
1. Sheet Mask
A sheet mask? Are we kidding? No jokes here. It’s not like you’re extending your seat back into someone, or wondering around the cabin shoeless. You’re minding your own business, moisturising, and working on your best self. This is a brightening mask with vitamin C, and it fights dark circles and dullness- a life saver!
2. Eye mask
L'oréal men expert hydra energetic cooling eye roll-on. This Men Expert Hydra Energetic Cooling Eye Roll-On by L'Oreal is perfect for providing an ice-cool effect for your eyes, using a vitamin C and caffeine enriched formula to refresh your outlook. Refreshing and hydrating tired looking eyes to fight the signs of fatigue, L’Oréal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Cooling Eye Roll-On reduces the appearance of bags and dark circles so that each day your eye contours appear brighter, and with a youthful energy.
3. Dry Shampoo
Spray this dry shampoo in your hair before heading onto the plane to soak up oil as it happens, then reapply whenever you feel a little greasy. The Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is recommended because it:
- Absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odour.
- Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean.
- Works on all hair colours because it leaves virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up behind.
- Has a time-released fragrance to deliver a light, clean scent throughout the day.
- Safe and formulated for colour and chemically treated hair.
- Ideal for all hair types.
4. Hydrating serums
The lack of moisture in recirculated cabin air will dry out your skin and send your oil glands into overdrive—a very bad combination. You need a hydration serum, like this oil-free one from Ole Henriksen. Apply multiple times throughout the journey. This serum is enriched with orange and green tea extracts, this fast-absorbing, oil-free formula revives the complexion. Indulge in this serum’s sweet, energizing citrus aroma and silky texture as it glides beautifully on the skin for a healthier, more youthful-looking glow.
