You’ve booked the flights, plus a chic boutique hotel, but what to pack in your carry-on beauty bag? Our range of hand-luggage approved deluxe travel sizes are just the ticket to tackle dull, dry ‘plane skin’ for a naturally healthy-looking in-flight glow.
Top travel tips, with help from Lifestyle Ambassador Sarah Carr…
“As soon as the seatbelt sign is switched off, grab your miniature Cleanse & Polish™ and head to the bathroom to do a thorough cleanse – removing any make up to reveal a clean complexion that will be easier to keep hydrated throughout the flight. Next, rehydrate skin with Instant Boost™ Skin Tonic.”
Bolster the basics
Want to upgrade? We can’t promise you a seat in first class, but we can recommend bolting on extra targeted treatments to give your complexion an in-flight radiance boost. Our calming Balancing Gel Mask, blended with a trio of refreshing flower waters, comes in a travel-friendly 50ml size (or decant some into a clean travel pot if you’re tight on space), while our 30ml Superskin™ Face Serum instantly hydrates and infuses skin with powerful plant ingredients.
“Next, apply face oil – our Superskin™ Concentrate for Night rollerball is ideal, plus the calming scent of neroli, lavender and chamomile essential oil is instantly relaxing – then apply your chosen moisturiser to hydrate and add a barrier to protect against moisture loss during the flight. Using a moisturising lip balm will help keep lips comfortable whilst flying – Superskin™ Superlip Balm is a favourite.”
Land looking refreshed
“Finally, before landing, apply Eyebright™ Soothing Eye Lotion to two cotton pads and place over the eyes, leaving for up to 5 minutes − this is like a mini facial for the eyes to counteract that tired, puffy feeling.”
Drink plenty of water
The drying effects of cabin air are notorious, so as well as your in-flight skincare routine, keep sipping water continuously to help replace lost moisture. It goes without saying that alcohol only increases dehydration, so while it’s tempting to order that G&T (and ridiculously tasty bag of salted snacks), try to wait until after you’ve landed.
Plan your snacks
“I’m not great with plane food and often choose to take my own meal plus snacks to keep my digestive system happy. I pack things like apples, bananas, dates, nuts and nut butter sachets. For a long-haul flight, I’ll pick up a sandwich or salad to keep me going. I also take dried oats, nuts and fruit in a Tupperware container and just add water on the flight – this makes a tasty, healthy snack or breakfast.”
