You may not think to pack your deep hydrating cream in your carry-on bag, especially given airline regulations on cosmetics and similar products. However, when you are going to be in the air for several hours, deep hydrating cream is one of the most important things you can have with you. Air travel, while convenient, can wreak havoc on your skin because of the increase in air pressure as well as the bacteria that may be traveling through the cabin. Here are a few simple ways to protect your skin on your next flight.
Keep Deep Hydrating Cream in Your Carry On
Perhaps the biggest skin care issue that you will run into while flying is dry skin, caused by the circulating air and cabin pressure on your plane. Keeping your deep hydrating cream in your carry on for use throughout the flight will keep you from landing with completely dried out skin. Just make sure that you carry it in a container that is compliant with major airlines. In addition to keeping your deep hydrating cream on hand, it is a good idea to do an intense hydrating max to prep your skin the night before your flight.
Dress for Healthy Skin
When you are under the stress and anxiety of air travel, coupled with the changes in the air, it is not unusual for you to experience irritated skin. In the most extreme cases, this can result in rashes and hives all over the body. Dress for your flight in loose fitting, comfortable clothes of 100-percent cotton. This gentle fabric won’t irritate your skin and a loose fit will keep it from rubbing up against you throughout the flight. If you want to arrive in more style, you can always pack a change of clothes to put on just before landing without sacrificing your skin on the way.
Go Easy on the Makeup
Dermatologists recommend not using a great deal of makeup while you are on a plane. This is especially true if you are taking a longer flight. The reason is that you are about to go for several hours in difficult air conditions without access to your entire skin care regimen. If you are wearing makeup as your skin is drying faster than usual, you will most likely end up with clogged pores, which lead to blemishes.
Before you get on your next flight, make sure that you spend extra time hydrating and prepare to land with your healthiest possible skin.
