Let’s just agree that Airplanes, although convenient and quick to get around, come with a few challenges. And one of the challenges is dealing with dull, dehydrated skin afterwards. If you don’t protect your skin and take proper measures, you will experience dehydration because of the low humidity levels in the cabin. Research has shown that in long-distance air travels, humidity levels can drop to a whopping 10 per cent, whereas your skin is comfortable within 40-60 percent of humidity levels! This is why ensuring hydrated skin is essential. Here’s how you can do it:
Keep your skin Hydrated and Nourished on a flight with these tips
1 Cleanse well
Although this seems a very obvious and basic thing to suggest, cleansing the right way matters a lot. You must avoid anything drying or stripping that can disrupt the natural oils of your face. Instead, opt for something creamy, gentle, and hydrating.
We highly recommend you to pick our Daily Duet Cleanser which will get all the dirt and grime off your face without being harsh and stripping. Its skin-loving ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, Panthenol, and Red algae deeply clean your skin and leave it feeling softer and brighter without much effort!
2 Keep your skin barrier healthy
The low humidity leads to dryness, dehydration, even inflammation, and this results in disruption of the skin barrier. Hence, it is necessary to use products that have ingredients targeted to support your skin barrier. Incorporate products that have ingredients such as Ceramides, Centella, Panthenol, and Peptides that help support barrier health.
3 Amp up your antioxidants levels
You never know what kind of air you would be dealing with up there, right? So it’s always a good idea to prep and protect your skin beforehand from all the environmental damage. And you can easily do that with the help of a nourishing Vitamin C serum that is enriched with antioxidants.
If you are looking to up your antioxidants, you must check out our C For Yourself Vitamin C Serum. It has a silky, smooth, very hydrating texture that will plump and brighten up your skin, keeping it healthy and protected.
4 Pack a nourishing moisturizer
Since flights have dry air and it can suck out all the moisture from your face, it becomes a necessity to apply topical moisturizer in between. Make sure to pack a travel-friendly moisturizer like our Ceramide Supercream and just slather it whenever and wherever you can to retain moisture. Apart from this, you must also hydrate your skin from within by drinking plenty of water throughout the journey!
