Most women will agree that flying has a negative impact on their skin leading to various types of problems that are hard to get rid of. The re-circulated air inside the cabins has a detrimental effect on skin, making dry skin drier and oily skin oilier. This atmospheric change might even cause acne breakouts in some cases, leaving you with a dull, patchy and irritable skin when you finally arrive at your holiday destination.
Here are some tips to protect your skin from damage and ensure that it stays beautiful and gorgeous even while you are travelling:
KEEP MAKEUP TO MINIMUM
If you have ever spotted a celebrity in the airport then you must have seen that they wear large hats and sunglasses to cover their face. It’s not just the paparazzi that they want to avoid, but also because they do not want to be caught on camera without makeup.
Having your makeup on while flying can dehydrate your skin and make it age faster especially if your flight is too long. So, avoid makeup completely or keep it to a minimum – a tinted moisturizer will do. If you must apply makeup on your face because someone special will come to see you at the airport then make sure to remove makeup before the plane takes off.
KEEP YOUR TOILETRIES HANDY WHILE FLYING
You can’t forget your skin care routine while flying. No matter where you are headed to, do carry your regular cleanser, toner, serum, sunscreen and moisturizer. When you are travelling, make sure you have tiny bottles of your beauty products to carry them with ease. You can purchase a travel set that contains all you need to keep your skin fabulous.
MOISTURIZING YOUR SKIN WHILE ON A FLIGHT
You might suddenly feel that your skin feels too dry (if you have dry skin) or starts shining (if you have oily skin). For dry skin, you must apply moisturizer on your face generously and also apply a lip balm to protect your lips from drying. For oily skin, use a blotting paper to absorb the excess oil and then apply a moisturizer.
TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID INFECTIONS
Many people get sick during their trip and this means infection around you. To ensure that you do not catch cold or get sick on your holiday, make sure you always carry a hand sanitizer with you. This will ensure that your skin does not get any bacterial infection from the plane and you don’t end up spending a few days of your holiday trying to recover from illness.
DRINK ENOUGH WATER TO KEEP YOUR SKIN WELL HYDRATED
Whether you have dry or oily skin, remember that it needs to stay hydrated and thus you must drink at least eight to ten glasses of water every day. So, drink all water that you are offered in a flight even if that means making frequent visits to the toilet. Your skin is the last organ of the body to get hydrated so make sure you drink enough water or else you will start noticing skin aging and other problems.Social tagging: Skin > skin care > Travel Skin Care > travelling > Vine Vera > VineVera
