Why do you need to take care of your skin on the plane?
Did you know that even while on the plane, skincare should not be neglected? In fact, there is a greater need to care for it when a few thousand feet up in the sky due to dry, recirculated air in the plane cabin. Not to mention that because air flow is constantly circled back, it carries bacteria and pollution that accumulate on your skin. All these external aggressors can leave you with dry, dull and especially tired-looking skin! So yes, you are not hallucinating if you ever noticed dullness after getting off a flight!
To prevent that from happening and premature ageing due to constant travelling, it is essential to incorporate the following in your routine.
#1 Cleanse when you have the chance!
No excuses on this one! As mentioned above, a good portion of the circulated air allows pollution to aggravate your skin, especially if you are already facing atopic skin conditions like eczema! Cleansing your face from all the grime is therefore essential in maintaining a nice, clean surface, free from bacteria to prevent acne breakouts!
Try Kaleanser Face Wash - A fuss-free gentle face cleanser with an easy to wash gel-like consistency that makes cleansing your face super speedy yet super effective when removing such debris. One of the many plus points is that Kaleanser also acts as a waterproof makeup remover! Look your best when on flight, but remove your makeup and cleanse your face with just 1 product when snoozing on the plane!
#2 Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
Putting back hydration is equally as important as it helps form a protective moisture barrier and prevents your skin from drying out. It also prevents pollution from getting in touch with the surface of your skin! Make sure to not miss this step if you want dewy, plump, and well-hydrated looking skin!
Try Dream Capsule Overnight Sleeping Mask - Although a sleeping mask, it can also replace your moisturiser. Dream Capsule also excels in reversing free radical damage accumulated due to external aggressors that can cause premature ageing. Better still, Dream Capsule deeply hydrates and can seal in all the hydration on long haul flights, and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines! Never have a dull-skin moment after getting off a plane again!
#3 Sunscreen is still a must!
Being on the plane does not excuse you from your daily application of sunscreen! Harmful UVA and UVB rays can even penetrate cloud cover and the windows of the aircraft. Sun exposure can cause quick degeneration of skin, causing sagging, wrinkles and fine lines at an early age - we certainly do not want that! Hence, make sure you apply a generous amount and reapply whenever you can to maintain that youthful appearance!
Try - Morning Glow Physical Sunscreen - A broad spectrum sunscreen that has SPF50, PA++++, which effectively keeps you protected no matter where you are. Morning Glow is a physical sunscreen, which means it is 100% safe for pregnant and nursing mommies!
