It’s insane how dry and unsanitary airplane air can be 😱✈️. This is one of the hidden enemies of healthy skin which many of us are unaware of. When you are up in the sky, the air you breath in and out is literally shared between all the passengers and recycled through the whole cabin (no open window, duh) Also flying up there means higher chance to be exposed to UVs rays.
Skincare, before/after a flight, therefore is super important. Here are a few tips I have learnt and have done wonders for my skin while I’m travelling:
- 𝐁𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐚 𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭, 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐧 𝐚 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐬. The purpose is to lock in hydration and moisture to protect your skin from the desert-like condition on the ✈️ 𝐀𝐥𝐬𝐨 𝐩𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐧 𝐚 𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐮𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 🧴 UVB might be blocked by the plane itself but UVA aint a quitter and it will find you in there 🤪 so be prepared.
- 𝐃𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭, 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐞 ! If possible, get some sleep, let your skin rest and regenerate. 😴
- 𝐀𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭, once you get to your house/hotel, now 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐮𝐥𝐠𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞💆🏻♂️ Double cleanse, toner, serum you name it. Your skin just went through a rough time, it needs some tender loving care 🥰
So that’ it ! Simple right? But must do hor else later got pimples breakout don’t say I never tell you hor 😜
