As a beauty editor, I’m a big fan of flying pretty much anywhere and whenever I get the chance. But the toll it takes on my skin is something I could live without.
Zero humidity, recycled oxygen, and chemicals everywhere can both dry out skin and cause more breakouts. Feeling dehydrated and oily just reading this? Us too. So instead of just dealing with “plane face,” we thought we’d share our in-flight skincare secrets.
Along with relaxing and catching up on your favorite magazine, try to look at air travel as an opportunity to beautify. For instance, Jessica Alba recently revealed that she never travels without her NURSE JAMIE Beauty Bear Age Delay Pillow ($69). The ultimate anti-wrinkle pillow for minimizing sleep lines and wrinkles while you sleep, the NURSE JAMIE Beauty Bear Age Delay Pillow allows your skin to retain its natural moisture and oils, helping to minimize the appearance and creation of deep-set sleep wrinkles.
Now, that’s beauty sleep.
So, go ahead fill up your carry-on bag packed with a mini-arsenal of travel-size anti-aging products and get ready for the most radiant skin ever—no matter how long your flight. Because nothing is more exciting than arriving at your destination with a well-rested, line-less and radiant skin.
