If you spend a significant amount of time flying the friendly skies, it could be taking a toll on your skin. However, there are lots of skin care tips and skin care products that can help keep your skin healthy and beautiful while you travel. Here are five skin care tips for frequent flyers!
Skin Care Tip: Have a Travel-Size Intensive Moisturizer Handy
Flying can really dry out your skin, so be sure to keep a travel-size intensive moisturizer in your carry-on to replenish lost hydration. Keeping your skin moisturized both during and after your flight will help minimize the impact of air travel on your skin. Even if your skin is acne-prone, it’s important to moisturize while you’re in the air. Letting your skin become overly dry can cause it to produce more oil, which can worsen acne breakouts. If you only remember one piece of advice for taking care of your skin while you travel, let this be it!
Skin Care Tip: Carry a Hydrating Toner
Flying not only dries out your skin, but it can also be downright stressful. In addition to your moisturizer, try taking along a travel-size Murad Hydrating Toner. This refreshing spray is perfect for rehydrating your skin and helping you unwind midflight!
Skin Care Tip: Stay Hydrated on the Plane
The best way to counteract the dehydrating effect of flying is to stay hydrated on the plane. For a sustained source of hydration, Dr. Murad recommends “eating your water” by having water-rich fruits and vegetables. Doing so is not only good for your skin—it’s good for you too! And when it comes to beverages, choose wisely. Instead of getting red wine or soda from the beverage cart, stick with water or fruit juice.
Skin Care Tip: Carry an Acne Spot Treatment
If your skin care concerns include breakouts, carry a travel-size acne spot treatment, like Murad Acne Spot Treatment, in your carry-on. Treating blemishes on the spot is an important part of any effective acne treatment plan. Stress can cause acne breakouts, and travel is often stressful. With an on-the-spot acne treatment, you can treat breakouts as soon as you feel them coming on and help prevent new blemishes from fully developing.
Skin Care Tip: Carry an Under Eye Cream
Even a short flight can make you look like you haven’t slept in days. The stress of flying can create bags under your eyes or even dark circles under your eyes. To prevent this, keep an under eye cream or eye illuminator, such as Murad Hybrids® Eye Lift Illuminator, in your travel bag. Use it to give yourself an instant wake-up around the eyes before you exit the plane.
