Beauty tips for flying

Travelling is fun and it’s been so long since we have been able to travel freely. Do you even remember how you feel when you fly? Do you remember how your skin feels after a flight? Especially a long haul flight? The humidity, or lack thereof, in an airplane is literally one of the worst possible environments you can put your skin through. It is dehydrating which causes our cells to get depleted of moisture, resulting in dry, dull skin and hair. 
 
Whether you are flying short or long haul, it is always beneficial to prepare yourself to help prevent dehydration in-flight.
 
Below are some tips to help you keep your skin fresh whilst flying.
 

Keep Yourself Hydrated

One of the most important things you should always remember when going on a flight is to drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. Resist drinking alcoholic and caffeinated beverages as they can contribute to further dehydration.

Prep Your Skin

At least a week before your flight, start prepping your skin to lock in as much moisture as possible. Our 
Kennedy Road Hydrating Gel Mask is perfect for this. Use 1-2 in the week leading up to your flight. You can leave this mask on your skin overnight for extra hydration. You will feel the difference in your skin when you get off the plane.

Spritz a face mist regularly

Face mists are absolute life savers. Our 
Kennedy Road Refreshing Toning Mist gives your skin an instant boost of freshness and hydration. Spritz your face whenever you can feel as if your skin getting taut and dry from pressure. Just remember to downsize to a travel sized bottle for your carry on so it doesn’t get confiscated at security.

Include your Eye Cream in carry on

If you are going on a long haul flight, remember to pack your eye cream in your carry on. By applying 
Kennedy Road Intensive Eye Cream while inflight, you can prevent some of the puffiness and fine lines that are so common post flight. And if you can fit it in, a silk eye mask is also amazing on long haul flights. Not only will it retain the moisture from the eye cream in and around your eye area, it will also help block out light from screens and flashlights which can disturb your sleep.

Prioritise your post flight skincare 

Once you have landed, it is great to cleanse your face and reapply your skincare as soon as you can. This helps you to feel refreshed and will give your skin the best chance at recovering from the flight.
 
I hope these help with your next flight. Enjoy your trip x
