12 days until I jet off to China, so currently I’m searching around for skin care routines for long haul flights. I think any girl would probably have experienced skin discomfort during long haul flights mainly from severe dehydration in the cabin, so here’s my tips:
- Buy some empty refill 100ml bottles from Ebay, fill it with your trustworthy skin care products, so these will be kept in your hand luggage no fuss! 🙂
Toner: I swear by Garnier – essential grape extract toner for combination skin; it’s hydrating but non- greasy so I could re-apply it every hour or so during flights. P.S it is important to use non- greasy products to prevent breakouts! I also read that most celebs recommend – Evian facial spray. It relieves dry, irritated skin caused by high altitude and poor air quality during air travel. Also it can be used in hotter climates to cool your skin down. There are so many positive reviews out there on beauty blogs, so I might give a try!
Facial cream: I usually use Garnier essential day cream for combination skin, feels very light on my skin and non greasy. But this might not be hydrating enough during flights, my friend recommended Aquaphor by Eucerin, apparently it’s really soothing so I’m giving it a go!
Under eye area: Invest in a nice eye cream is a must for long haul flights and usually I pack a few Q10 under eye masks too,keeping my under eye area moist and bright.
Lips:Dont forget the lips, I have pretty sensitive skin so I rely on my little green tin of Vaseline to do the trick.
** so before applying all of these products, make sure you remove every trace of make up!!! **
Invest in an eye mask, ear plug, headphones, travel pillow && a pair of wooly socks
This is so important for me, I’m one of those people who cannot sleep in flights but I shall always try to get some rest 😛
drink lots of water keeping you and your skin hydrated
I usually buy two large bottles before boarding and keep them near me during the flight, so much easier than calling the flight attendants all the time asking for water.
