Travel Tips for Your Skin

Have a long flight ahead of you? Want to look somewhat refreshed when you land? You don’t want to back all your skin essentials yet you need to pack to keep your skin healthy and refreshed.

Maybe some of these tips will help…

We’ve all heard to drink lots of water when flying…but did you know to avoid alcohol, caffeine and asparagus? They are all diuretics that will rob your skin of its moisture.

Streamline your routine for an easier trip by paring it down to two essential ingredients. Find a moisturizer that doubles as a sunscreen and a great eye cream.

Don’t apply your makeup before flying. I know it’s hard but on a long trip you will be glad you waited. Pack your moisturizing cream and eye cream in your carry-on bag. Apply your moisturizer when you get settled in your seat and your eye cream right before you land. Keeping your eye cream chilled in a glass of ice does wonders. Also avoid the peanuts, pretzels and chips as they add salt and puffiness to your face.

Since all airplane air is re-circulated and overly dry, try misting your face with mineral water using a water spritzer.

Travel well.
