Winter traveling can be the hardest on the skin, especially when you’re jetting between family get-togethers in frozen hinterlands and tropical vacations on island paradises. We researched the most respected skincare blogs, magazine articles, and dermatological advice pages and distilled our findings into these three skincare tips that can save your skin from dreaded travel ennui.
Use a thick creamy moisturizer pre-flight. Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm is super rich – some might say too rich – but when applied judiciously before takeoff your skin will be dewy and refreshed by landing.
Hydrate like you mean it. A person can become quickly dehydrated during air travel and that leads to all manner of discomforting issues, among them, dull, waxy complexions. Amp up your water intake before your flight and make sure to drink lots of water while you’re in the air to stave off the pressurized air cabin blues.
A light spritz can rejuvenate your skin before you debark. We love Mario Badescu’s Aloe and Rosewater Facial Spray. Use it mid-flight to chase away stale air and leave you feeling supple and exhilarated. A spritzer full of homemade rosewater will do the trick as well, but make sure you keep it under 3.5 ounces to avoid TSA interruptions.
