Plane Beauty Routine

Traveling, in any form, can wreak havoc on your hair and skin. A flight can take a particularly big toll on everything. The dry, recycled plane air dries my skin out and even can cause me to break out. When I'm on longer flights, I have a few things that I like to do to counter the effects of the dry air.

Take off all Makeup - If I'm wearing makeup, I take all of it off immediately! You don't need anything clogging up your pores. Washing your face isn't a simple task on a plan so it may be a good idea to do it in the airport barthroom before you board. Or you can do what I do and use micelar water and a cottons swab. I use micelar water everyday to remove make up and wash my face. On a plane, you can use it without leaving your seat!

Apply an Eye Serum - The skin around your eyes is really delicate and can dry out even faster than the rest of your skin. The current serum I'm loving is this one from Tula. What I love most about it is the applicator. The metal tip is cool and it, along with the serum, helps with puffiness. It also just feels really good.

Oil Up - I have talked a few times about my love for this Vitamin C Serum/Oil. It is one of the few items I always take with me when I travel. Even when I'm wearing little or no makeup, this oil gives me a glow and because it is from Beauty Counter, I know it is a safe and clean product. So its not shocking that I immediately slather on a fair amount when on a plane. I apply it all over my face and on my neck and hands

Add Moisture - Moisture, Moisture, Moisture! Now I add a barrier to protect my skin and add moisture. The best thing to do this is a really moisturizing mask! The Colleen Rothschild Intense Hydrating mask is magic and really makes my skin glow. I like to put it on and keep it on the whole flight! Another reason this mask is great is that it doesn't look like you have a mask on, so you won't scare anyone on the plane with you! You don't have to wash it off either so I like to keep it on during the whole duration off the flight.

Do you have anything you do to help your skin survive a flight?
