Time to board ladies! If you’re packing up for the holidays, a girl's trip, or business, spending hours traveling from one location to another is exhausting on your skin.
With traveling you can expect your skin to feel super dry on a plane with the humidity and air quality, you might even notice a few breakouts post-flight. You might not need a whole in-flight skincare routine, but a few key products can be worthwhile to make your skin feel supple and fresh.
These TSA-approved beauty hacks will give you a natural glow so you’re ready to look fresh-faced for all your travel selfies.
Hydrating Face Mist
While you’re on your flight, the dry cabin air can suck out all the moisture from your skin. A face mist is a perfect pick-me-up to reduce any inflammation and add a boost of hydration. A coconut water-based face mist can help balance moisture and brighten your complexion to restore the skin’s natural radiance. You can reapply throughout your flight no matter how long you are in the air.
For those long cross-country flights, your skin is going to need a major hydration boost. A sheet mask is packed with hyaluronic acid, vitamins, natural plant extracts, amino acids, and minerals to perk up your skin. Fruit extracts moisturize your skin while amino acids are key for plump skin. No matter how jetlagged you are, or what temperature or time zone you land in, this is your secret to looking fresh.
Packed with reparative, moisturizing nutrients and other skin care elements, serum foundations provide a skin tint to even your complexion while leaving your skin feeling silky soft. The multi-tasker formula is perfect for a luminous glow with a thin layer of coverage that’s breathable for traveling. Your skin won't feel clogged or heavy unlike most foundations or BB creams.
Want to de-gunk those pesky blackheads before you land? Pore strips can be used during your flight for a quick 10-minute skincare step for a smooth nose. This a quick and easy way to decongest your nose from impurities, dirt, and excess oil that can be trapped at the surface. Just apply the nose strip on pre-cleansed skin and let it do the work while you’re in flight.
Essential oils are your travel buddy to naturally alleviate any discomfort that comes with long flights. Multipurpose oil can work wonders for calming benefits for jetlagged travelers. For insomnia, restlessness, or anxiety, lavender oil can help you feel calm, peaceful, and relaxed.
If you’re prone to experience headaches, allergies, or any muscle aches, peppermint oil can instantly relieve symptoms once rubbed on your temples, behind your ears, or under your nose.
For those long-haul flights, dry shampoo is a hair savior to instantly refresh your hair from any oil, odor, and sweat. Temperature and humidity changes can cause your scalp to overproduce natural oils, so keeping a travel-size dry shampoo during your flight is a must. Some of the best dry shampoos will absorb any excess oil and greasy roots while also volumizing your hair once you’re about to land.
Long-haul flights are the number one cause of skin hydration loss, so it's essential to have a lip serum that will hydrate and soothe your lips while you're on the move. Most lip balms and lip oils are overly scented and greasy without any nourishing benefits. A lip serum has a thin consistency to help soften fine lines, improves moisture balance, increases blood flow to the lips, and boosts elasticity.
These essential travel-friendly beauty secrets will do wonders for your parched jetlagged skin. Even though you might not need a full in-flight skincare routine, investing in a few basic items will help your skin look fresh and awake by the time you land at your destination.
