We’re coming upon the busiest travel time of the year and we all know the recycled air inside the plane is notorious for zapping the life out of our skin. While we can’t help you with the slow Wi-Fi, we can help keep your face glowing when you land to your family and friends.
1. EXFOLIATE TO PREP FOR MAXIMUM HYDRATION
Before you head to the airport, cleanse and use a gentle exfoliant to ensure the next few hydration steps fully absorb into your skin.
2. SUPER HYDRATE WITH YOUR SKIN WITH A SERUM
Use a serum that contains hydrating superstar hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring ingredient in our skin that holds 1,000 times its weight in water. The TSA will never know you’re sneaking that much liquid into your pores.
3. APPLY A MASK (AND LEAVE IT ON)
Next, apply a very thin layer of a hydrating mask (one whose directions allow it to be left on overnight). By very thin, we mean no one else should know you have a mask on. Remember to always put on your own mask before helping others.
4. FINISH WITH AN SPF
Put on your daily SPF (especially important if your window seat-mate doesn’t close that shade) and use your hydrating mask the evening you arrive at your destination.
Pack a hydrating mist in your carry-on bag and spritz a few times throughout the flight. Yes, you’ll be that person, but you’ll be the freshest thing in coach.
