It’s no secret that flying will dry out your skin. From the recycled air to the cabin pressure, your skin unfortunately doesn’t stand a chance. There are a few things, however, we can do to help keep our skin plump, hydrated and looking great! And with the Holiday Travel Season just around the corner, you’ll want to hear this advice!
Water. Water. Water. And not to sound redundant but… Water!! Pick up a large bottle before boarding the plane & try your best to drink the whole thing while on the flight. You could also become friendly with your flight attendant & take advantage of the free water on the plane... but one of those small cups won’t do it. Try to also hydrate yourself as much as possible prior to boarding the plane. Eating water-rich foods can supplement your drinking. Some water-dense foods include watermelon, peaches, cucumbers, plums, celery, peaches & lettuce. By having all of this additional hydration, your skin will exude a beautiful glow for the Holidays.
Rest While You Can
There is a hustle bustle that goes in hand with the Holiday season. Whether trying to make time to visit with both sides of the family or attempting to make the most of a quick trip by staying up late for extra time to chat, try your best to take advantage of the time you have to grab some quick shut eye. Bring a mask on the flight or a neck rest. You may look a little silly, but who cares! When you get off the flight, you will look like a new woman, ready to spread holiday cheer!
Travel With Your Skincare Routine In Tow
Lucky for you traveling ladies, Akar Skin has an entire travel kit, fully equipped with a travel baggy, that is perfect for your Holiday travel. With a kit available for each skin type, Akar makes traveling a dream for your skin.
Both available kits come with the following products:
Lush Balance Toning Mist(30 ml) The first step after cleansing skin. Just spritz the mist on your face 4-5 times & your skin will feel instantly refreshed. This toning mist is formulated to protect skin from free radicals and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Vegan stem cells derived from saffron promote cell repair. Rose and neroli restore skin’s natural pH balance and tighten pores.
Nutrient Boost Eye Serum (5 ml) Nutrient Boost is formulated specifically to reduce puffiness, dryness, dark circles and wrinkles… perfect for during the exhaustion of Holiday travel. It contains goji seed oil that is rich in essential fatty acids, working synergistically with pumpkin seed oil, mushroom extract and a wealth of nutritive plant extracts to tighten and rejuvenate tired skin. Definitely a “must-have.”
Mini Care Lip Butter (7 ml) The recycled cabin air is bound to dry out your lips. This refreshing whip of soothing oils and nutrient-rich extracts will smooth lines and keep lips soft, supple and glossy for hours on end. No need to constantly reapply.
The Dry/Normal Kit vs. The Oily/Combination/Sensitive Skin Kit
The Dry/Normal Kit comes with the Desert Rescue Face Oil (10 ml), which is made with key hydration-locking ingredients. Baobab oil is high in oleic acid, making it really effective at sealing in moisture. It is also high in antioxidants and vitamins A, E and D. Jojoba oil, on the other hand, is very similar to the sebum our skin produces, enabling rapid absorption. The plant extracts are carefully chosen to sooth and heal skin while providing antiaging benefits.
The Oily/Combination/Sensitive Kit comes with the Neat Remedy Face Oil(10 ml). The incredibly soothing blue tansy joins german chamomile in a base of argan and safflower oil to balance your skin’s sebum level, calm inflammations and clarify your complexion without drying your skin.
Depending on your skin type, both of these options will be sure to lock in moisture so you can enjoy healthy, hydrated skin all holiday season long.
