In-Flight Beauty Tips: How To Land Looking Radiant
Posted on May 10 2023
It’s that time of year again—the unofficial start of summer is almost here, and everyone is planning a getaway.The only downside to travel? Hours in the skies can wreak havoc on your complexion. We’ve all dealt with that dry, tight feeling on our skin while flying—recycled air is low in humidity and sucks the moisture right out of your body. But never fear! There are plenty of steps you can take to counteract the negative effects.
Follow the five tips below, and you will arrive at your destination looking radiant.
The night before you travel, gently exfoliate your skin with our Balancing Cleanser and put on a Hydrating Mask. Apply our Hand & Body Lotion—which is enriched with nourishing multi-vitamins, seaweed, and active plant oils—to your entire body. This will help keep your skin from drying out the following day. (And don't forget your Mineral Sunscreen the morning of your flight! Being above 10,000 feet increases your risk for sun damage because the UVA light penetrates through the windows and can be harmful to your skin).
Drink plenty of water, and avoid foods that are high in salt, sugar, and fat—they will cause inflammation. Excessive alcohol and caffeine also have the same impact. Focus on eating whole foods, like fruit and vegetables.
To stay prepared while you are on the go, keep our Sea Mineral Hydra Mist (to gently tone and remineralize your skin) and Hydrating Cream (to protect and enrich your skin) with you at all times—they are both within the allotted carry-on liquid limit for airport checkpoint security. Our Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, which is infused with sea fennel, chamomile, and eyebright extract, is great for gently removing makeup during travel.
Wear Minimal Makeup
No need to go beauty product free (you can if you want!), but think about what (and how much) you put on your face. Start by generously patting on our Advanced Polypeptides Searum to protect, nourish, and rejuvenate skin. Avoid heavy foundations and powders, and opt instead for spot coverage using our water-based Cream Concealer. Apply a more moisturizing product on your eyes, cheeks, and lips—our Multi Pot is the perfect choice for all three. If you can't live without lashes, swipe on our Luxe Mascara for volume, length, and no irritation.
Keep It Clean
Don’t touch your face without washing or sanitizing your hands first—the germs and excess oil on your fingers will transfer onto your skin.
