On Flight – Skin Care

Our skin takes a beating when we hop on a plane for a long flight mainly on account of dehydration of your skin. This is due to the combination of high altitude and temperature and pressure maintenance required in the flight.
Thus the basic care required would be moisturizer, moisturizer and moisturizer!

  • Good cleansing forms the base of any skin care regimen you follow. When you plan to board a flight avoid using scrubs and granular cleansers. Also avoid cleansers with glycolic or salicylic acids as these tend to dry up the skin. Instead use mild cleansers or cleansers for sensitive skin.
  • Use a light moisturizer or a moisturizing sunscreen as a base for the make up.
  • Avoid using heavy foundations and powder make up.
  • Also do not forget to moisturize your hands and feet. You can carry travel pack moisturizer (airport approved – less than 3 ounces) lotion or cream.
  • Reapply the moisturizer every 4 to 6 hours depending on your skin type. If you have a dry skin you would need to moisturize it more frequently.
  • Apply a wet lipstick, avoid using matte lipsticks on flight as this would make your lips feel dry and chapped.
  • Use a live-on conditioner or a long lasting Serum on your hair to keep them from drying and getting frizz.
  • Drink lots of water when on flight. 
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these tend to increase dehydration
