Traveling can be a hassle and create many problems, especially towards your daily routines and skin. Here are some tips that will help you out a bit:
- Because of the recycled air and lack of water on the plane you need as much hydration as you can get. Find a good moisturizer that is oil based or is very hydrating. The Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C and Squalane moisturizer is filled with vitamins and a little goes a long way, it makes my face seem softer and hydrated in the mornings. If you have an oilier face then try the RegenFX Skin Care System, it’s lighter and better to use as at night treatments. The whole system will make your face look fresher and your skin look brighter and this is just what you need after you get off a long flight
- Before you leave the house, deep condition your hair with a really moisturizing conditioner so your hair doesn’t frizz up and get staticky. I like to apply coconut oil to my hair half an hour or an hour before I shower, but any normal conditioner will work.
- Try to book a flight after 10 pm so that you can get some sleep on the plane right after you get on and your sleep schedule won’t be messed up right away. I like to use Dr. Xu’s Restful Sleep Natural Sleep Aid Supplement (Use the code SAVEREST to save 20% on your purchase) and this is made with chi, herbs and vitamins which help me wake up feeling fresh, not groggy.
- Bring some dry shampoo (make sure this fits into your one quart sized bag) and apply some dry shampoo when your hair gets oily and weird.
- When you get onto the plane, run some water through your hair and tie it up in a bun so when you take it out after a few hours (do it when you’re an hour from landing) and your hair will be voluminous and have nice curls/waves instead of being flat from being against a headrest for so long.
- Find a serum or something with Vitamin C to keep your collagen production going to your face looks bright and fresh when you get off. The one from OZ Naturals is really great. Use this is you don’t need anti-aging and this if you do.
- Get oil blotting sheets and if you don’t want to, most planes have seat covers and those get the job done. Plus it’s completely sanitary so don’t freak out.
- Place a cotton pad on top of all of your powdered compacts, this prevents your blushes, shadow, powdered foundations etc from breaking.
- Try to buy products that contain more than one product like the Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope products or the Naked Palettes. These products contain many shades and so you don’t have to take many along with you.
- Keep your liquid products and gel products in contact containers because they’re the perfect size.
