When you step onto an aeroplane, you know you’re in for an adventure. Aeroplanes represent new places, new people, and new experiences, but they can also mean unfortunate consequences for our hair and skin.
The air inside planes is notoriously dry and free from humidity, which can wreak havoc on skin and hair.
Luckily, these consequences can be prevented, so grab your airplane makeup bag and start filling it with these beautiful travel essentials.
It can take a lot of courage to throw a sheet mask onto your face with passengers to your left and right. So instead, opt for a mask that’s less conspicuous but even more hydrating than your moisturiser.
A creamy, hydrating mask will help your skin retain its moisture and nourishment so that you feel as fresh when you land as when you took off.
Find a skin mask that can help to replenish lost moisture and build a reserve of moisture for the following day. Better yet, find one that’s available in a travel size – ideal to fit in your travel necessities bag.
It’s easy to toss a moisturiser into your bag and hop on the plane, but sometimes your complexion needs a different kind of hydration boost.
Instead of covering your skin and hands in a moisturiser, again and again, bring along a hydrating mist that you can quickly spritz when your skin is thirsty.
With one simple spritz, you can soften, smooth and hydrate your skin. It’s a great way to soothe the skin without any oil and instantly replenish your moisture reserves so that you can feel comfortable throughout your flight.
Face and body wipes
Because of the dry air, skin can feel grimy on planes. That’s why face and body wipes are essential travel items.
By choosing wipes that can be used on the face and body, you’re able to quickly freshen up for a rejuvenated feeling. Clean away the dirt, oil, and sweat that can accumulate during your travels and keep your skin refreshed.
It’s not likely you’ll be able to shampoo and condition your hair in the aeroplane’s sink, but you can definitely revive your hair before you land.
Particularly on longer flights, your hair can start to feel the effects of the air. Hair might become flat, oily, or full of static. Giving your hair a little refresh is a great way to not only look better, but feel better, too.
Try a dry shampoo that absorbs impurities and offers a pleasant scent. Not only will the mist absorb excess oils and calm the hair, but choose a shampoo with a beautiful scent and you’re sure to make your time in the air more luxurious.
Puffy under-eyes can seem like an inevitability of flying. Combat the tired, puffy look of eyes with an eye cream that will awaken and calm your skin.
Ideally, for a long-haul flight, you’ll look for a cream with cooling tips that can help fight fatigue. Not only will it make you feel more like yourself even after hours in the air, but it’ll also help reduce the puffiness under your eyes.
Stay fresh while you fly with these travel essentials for the plane.
