Your bags may be packed and stowed away, your seat belt fastened and neck pillow perfectly placed; you think you are ready for takeoff, but is your skin prepared for the flight ahead? The cabin pressure, low humidity and recycled air won’t only affect your body, but can take a toll on your skin too – especially if you are in-flight for hours at a time. No matter how well primed you are for your trip, your skin will need a little extra attention if you want to land looking – and feeling – your best.
You may decide to leave behind your everyday arsenal of skin care products, traveling with full-sized bottles will not only add weight and bulk to your carry on, but may also be flagged by airport security if they contain more than 3.4 fluid ounces per item. However, tempting though, to lighten your load, you really do need to pack a few essential skin care products to emerge from your flight looking rested and ready to embark on the rest of your trip. You can opt for travel-friendly sized options and make a few smart swaps from your typical cleansers and liquid based items – but to truly have radiant skin throughout your travels be sure to pack these skin care products:
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #1: Eye cream. The cabin pressure and recycled air will make you feel and look tired. A hydrating and brightening eye cream will do wonders in perking up your under-eye area, which can look sunken, dry and dark when fatigued. The good thing about eye cream is that they are already typically compact and easy to carry on – so you don’t have to look for a travel size version. Try RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Eye Treatment, formulated with hyaluronic acid to help surge your skin with moisture and can help reduce the appearance of under eye bags with a cooling applicator tip.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #2: Hydrating moisturizer. Low humidity will cause excess dryness. If you already have dry skin you may experience extra tightening and flaking. If you typically have oily skin, it can become more prone to breakout because of the abrupt change. Look for a hydrating cream formulated with hyaluronic acid, like RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Deep-Acting Moisturizer that can be used for day and nighttime – a two-in-one product will save you some space in your bag. Hyaluronic acid is a great ingredient that helps combat extreme skin dryness and dullness that can come along with flying.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #3: Lip Balm. Again most lip balms are compact, so they are easy to travel with and really can be a lip-saver when flying. Just like your cheeks, nose and forehead, your lips are more likely to become chapped and dry because of the low humidity. Swipe on some balm before take off and keep it handy so you can reapply as needed.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #4: Water. If your body is dehydrated, your skin will also be dehydrated. Lack of hydration from the low humidity levels can cause your skin to look dull, lackluster and dry. Opt for drinking water while flying.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #5: Facial oil. A great way to add in extra nourishment while in the air is to apply a few drops of facial oil to your skin before take off. The facial oil can provide much-needed hydration to parched skin. Try Age Perfect® Glow Renewal Facial Oil, which dries quickly, is lightweight and non greasy.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #6: Facial wipes. A great way to freshen up, and a smart way to cleanse while traveling because it cuts down on your liquid load, facial wipes will help your skin stay clean while you fly and once you land. Look for a facial wipe with added benefits like RevitaLift® Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #7: Sheet mask. Use your time wisely while flying and indulge in a little facial treatment of your choice. Sheet masks are super easy to travel with, as they are lightweight to carry and easy to apply. Pack a few so that you can use them on your flight, to truly arrive looking refreshed, and throughout your trip for a little skin pampering.
Carry on-worthy travel skin care product #8: SPF with broad spectrum protection. A must-have for any day of the week, SPF is definitely important to pack along with your other skin care products. Whether you are going somewhere warm by a beach or somewhere it snows it the mountains, UV rays can cause potential harm to your skin if not protected. Look for a tinted moisturizer, facial moisturizer or sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection to shield against common signs of skin damage and premature signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and sunspots.
Look and feel radiant with the help of these skin care products. Travel with care and be mindful of your skin’s special needs while flying and once you land.
