If you’re planning to jet off overseas in the near future chances are that your focus is firmly on where you plan to land. However, they say the journey is just as important as the destination, and this certainly rings true when it comes to your in-flight beauty regimen.
Long-haul flights are physically and mentally exhausting, and often you’ll find yourself feeling a little out of sorts by the time you hit the tarmac.
Read on for all the skin and beauty tips that’ll save you when travelling!
In Your Seat:
Tip #1 –
If you’re able to, the best way to start a flight is barefaced. You’ll want to be able to top up your skincare easily throughout the trip, and clean skin means less product in your carry-on.
Tip #2 –
Tip #3 –
If your flight spans over more than 8 hours, you may like to cleanse your face at the halfway point – and try to avoid makeup wipes. Lips can chap quickly in the arid cabin air, so reapply a thick balm as often as possible, which can also double as a cuticle treatment.
Tip #4 –
And if you wear contact lenses, switching into your glasses for a flight helps to reduce irritation due to the dry environment – and you won’t need to be fumbling with those tiny lens cases in the bathroom stall.
The Rohto range of eyedrops are by far the most effective at combatting redness (approx $8.00 RRP) – try the Arctic variety for the equivalent of a breath mint for your eyes.
Tip #5 –
The usual rules – plenty of water and occasional walks around the cabin – still apply, and act as backup to reduce fatigued skin on the face and body.
