Plane travel can wreak havoc on our sleep patterns, body and most definitely our skin. Sitting still for a long time and drying air conditioning make for an uncomfortable environment, but there are always tips and tricks you can use to make your flight more comfortable, especially when it comes to beauty.
There are a few small, must-have items that you can stash away in your carry-on bag to help you feel fresh during your flight. Scroll through to see the pieces you need to avoid dry skin, chapped lips, bloating and all the other beauty woes of plane travel.
Plane travel notoriously dries out your skin and when your skin lacks water it looks dull, flaky and dry. Combat the dryness by bringing a hyaluronic acid serum with you on the plane. Hyaluronic acid pulls and holds water in the skin and it can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water back into your complexion. The result is plump, fresh and totally hydrated skin!
This is another key way to stay hydrated in-flight. Hyaluronic acid pulls and hold water in your skin but a face mist is a good way to introduce the water in the first place. You don't need anything fancy really, unless you're partial to fancy beauty products. Just pick something with a pleasant smell that's alcohol-free, as alcohol dries out your skin. Look for soothing ingredients like rose and chamomile. Or choose an antioxidant variety to stay extra fresh.
Not a lipstick. Not a liquid lipstick. Not a liner. It needs to be a balm. Aeroplanes are one of the quickest paths to chapped, split lips and most lipsticks won't do much to help. Head to your pharmacy or shop online for a proper lip balm that nourishes and protects from that horrible, drying aircon.
This one isn't essential for everyone but it is for me. When I travel on planes, I go makeup-free because it's a lot more comfortable. Wearing eyeshadow and foundation during a 12-hour flight is just a recipe for a smudged face. But after sitting in a small seat, completely still for hours, drinking very little water and in cold aircon, my complexion starts looking a little lifeless. A cheek tint is my way of adding a little flush and life back into my face without having to worry about smearing makeup all over the plane seat.
If you've got long hair and you're about to jump on a long-haul flight then you need to bring a hairbrush. I once left a 16-hour flight with a bird's nest where my hair used to be and that was the last time I ever forgot a hairbrush. Your head rubbing up against the back of the seat is a recipe for tangles so make sure you're equipped to deal with them.
Plane food sucks most of the time. Rather than risk being hungry for hours or having to ingest the slightly odd tasting reheated food that's served on a plane, I always have a few non-perishable snacks in my purse. Especially since plane food is notorious for causing bloating. You won't regret bringing an extra option for yourself.
One of my biggest pet peeves is that airlines don't serve nearly enough water. We're all supposed to be drinking two litres a day! So I bring my own. I'll take an empty bottle through security and fill it at a water fountain. Or you can buy some past the security checkpoint if you didn't bring an empty bottle. Your skin and stomach will thank you.
