In-Flight Beauty Tips
Your Skin: As we all know, all of the re-circulated air in airplanes really dehydrates you. Start the morning or evening before you flight by exfoliating your face in order to let it fully absorb any moisturizer you apply. It is also great to use a moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that pulls water in to keep skin hydrated. We also love a rosewater toner. Spritz on your face about twice mid-flight and feel refreshed when you step off of the flight.
Your Eyes: Long flights and intermittent sleep can do a number on your eyes. A cool compress can help reduce any swelling, just grab some ice from the stewardess, wrap it in a napkin or cloth and place over your eyes. If you prefer to use an eye cream, look for ones with ingredients to plump and smooth, like retinol, and vitamins C and E, which can prevent and repair any damaging effects to the skin.
Your Hair: The back of your hair can end up pretty flat by the end of a long flight. Putting your hair in a loose topknot will keep some volume in your hair and provide a nice loose wave when you take it out. If you have short hair, putting a bit of water on your fingertips and massaging the roots will give a little life back to it.
Your Body: Drink plenty of water. Coconut water is a great option; the added electrolytes will give you an extra boost. Airport food tends to be expensive and unhealthy. For this reason, we recommend packing snacks beforehand. Walnuts are great for keeping you feeling full and their anti-inflammatory properties as well.
