Your travel problems – solved!

Escaping the winter to head for somewhere sunnier?
You lucky thing!
But do you feel your skin and makeup let you down during and after your flight?
Read on to find your solution.

Dry, tight skin after flight?

Do you find cabin pressure, humidity and low oxygen dehydrates your skin, even on short-haul flights? Drink plenty of water and apply an intensive serum and moisturizer the night before you are going to fly. This will help before you’re exposed to the dehydrating effects of cabin pressure.

Foundation looking horrendous?

Not to prime is a crime! Putting a layer of protection between skin and makeup will help your makeup last longer and keep your skin from becoming dehydrated or oily.
A setting spray can dry your skin out further if it is alcohol based!

Makeup in general looking worse for wear?

It might seem like the last thing you want to do but lightly spraying your face with a toner or mineral water spray is so beneficial to bringing your face back to life!
Skin shining bright like a diamond?

Grab some napkins and lightly press flat napkin over oily areas to blot away excess oil. Don’t wipe or you’ll spread it!

Look tired af?

Dab a liquid highlighter over the high areas of your face to give your face some life! Use some eyedrops to get your eyes sparkling again.

Extra baggage?

If you haven’t put mascara on, chill a metal spoon amongst some ice in a cup and hold the spoons against your eyes to get rid of tired bags under your eyes.

 

Cracked it?

Even though it’s tempting, going without a matte lip during your flight will benefit you on the other side! Opt for an intensive lip balm and apply throughout the flight.

Manicure hassles?

Statement pops of colour on your nails does look dope on holiday but we all know that it only takes a sneezing fit to chip nailpolish

Buffing nails to get a natural sheen for a clean look, or apply a neutral, sheer color that won’t be obvious if it does chip.

 

The breakout breakdown?

Why do the pimples always come out to play as soon as you check in your suitcase?

Keep the chances of this to a minimum by NOT touching your skin!

There’s literally so much lowkey bacteria you can pick up that can give you all the little friends after you arrive at your destination.
A travel sized hand santizer will be your best friend.

And if you can only take one skin care item from home, let it be your cleanser ‘cause a sudden change in cleansers can freak out your skin’s acid balance and cause a vacay breakout.

Some final tips!

Dare to bare.

Travelling without makeup on is definitely the best option so you can keep moisturised and apply makeup before you arrive at your destination.
Or at the least, consider not wearing a mascara so you can have a snooze without black smears down your cheeks.

Be handy.

If you’re using a hand sanitizer, bring your fave hand cream along to counter act the drying effects of an alcohol based germ killer.

 

I hope you found these travel tips helpful!

Safe travels and keep being you
