3 In-Flight Skin Steps To Follow So You Can Exit The Plane Glowing

3 In-Flight Skin Steps To Follow So You Can Exit The Plane Glowing

It’s no easy feat coming off a long-haul or even domestic flight looking or feeling fresh. And while we just about parked any and all vacations that required travel via air for the last little while, we seem (fingers crossed) to be back. 

So if you’re a bit rusty when it comes to your in-flight skin care routine, we’ve kept things simple and listed the three absolute must-haves for avoiding dehydration, irritation and breakouts while you’re in the air. 

Multi-purpose balm 

If there’s one place where a multi-purpose product comes in handy, it’s on a plane. With limited space and being constricted by weight limits, packing as lightly as possible is always a requirement.  And when you’re competing with dehydrating conditions, there’s no shortage of areas that will need urgent moisture.

With a multi-purpose balm, you can seal moisture into chapped lips, cracked dry skin around the nose, cuticles and other flakey or sore patches. 

Plus, a multi-purpose balm can also be used as a beauty product to set brows, add a dewy sheen to cheeks, and coat lashes to make them appear thicker and darker.

We recommend: Trilogy’s Everything Balm ($10, Trilogy) and the Suvana Beauty Certified Organic Paw Paw & Honey ($7.95, Nourished Life)

Hydrating mist 

In addition to drinking water, regularly spritzing a hydrating mist will help to keep your skin from drying out and becoming irritated. We recommend going a step further and seeking a mist that has been enriched with soothing ingredients such as aloe vera and hyaluronic acid.

Our favourites? La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water Mist ($8.99 at Chemist Warehouse) and Kosmea Hydrating Rosewater Mist ($29.95 at kosmea.com.au).

Sheet mask

Recycled air exposes your skin to bacteria and severe dehydration. The skin can become flaky and irritated when it is dehydrated, but it can also compensate by producing an excess of oil. This causes breakouts, blackheads, and all kinds of skin problems. 

A sheet mask can address a broad range of skin conditions, from dryness to oil control, and they don’t require rinsing off. 

We love Simple’s Radiance Boosting Sheet Mask ($4, Woolworths) and the Garnier Nutri Bomb Milky Sheet Mask Hyaluronic Acid +  Coconut Milk ($3.39 at Chemist Warehouse)
