Top Tips To Look After Your Skin While On A Plane

Well Summer is here and so are the Summer holidays. Travelling (although wonderful) can play a huge havoc to our skin. The stress of plane travel is enough in itself sometimes, but with the air con on planes and just the general 'not so hygienic environment' is not always great for our skin.



So what are some ways we can have it looking super glossy and holiday ready by the time we land...? Here are my top tips...


AVOID THE MAKEUP


I know we can be tempted to wear a full face of makeup on a plane, but in reality it can cause blocked pores and dry out the skin.

If you're concerned and can't bear to be without it, then why not choose a tinted SPF as your base and then just some mascara and lip gloss. I love the Nimue tinted SPF 40 and also the SkinBetter Science Tone Smart Mineral sunscreen SPF 50. (just contact me here to purchase). You could always apply your makeup just before you land if you feel like you want to have makeup on when you arrive.



USE FACIAL MISTS


The air on a plane can be such a drying environment, why not use a face mist whilst you're travelling to keep the skin hydrated and plump. I love the Nimue Vitamin C Moisture Mist for this. It smells incredible and is also packed with antioxidants to protect your skin whilst you're in the air. (just contact me here to purchase)





KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF YOUR FACE


Travelling can be boring sometimes (especially long-haul trips) and we can be tempted to start touching or rubbing our face when we're tired. Unfortunately those airplane seats and tray tables are not always the cleanest. If we are touching them and then touching our face we can easily pass bacteria to our skin. So, if you can, keep your hands clean and away from your face.


STAY HYDRATED AND AVOID SALTY FOODS
