Vacation time is almost here and most of us are looking forward to a well-deserved getaway. But before you start exploring that exotic and cool destination you’ve been dreaming of, you have to jump on a jet plane first. However, as every city girl knows, flying can really take a toll on your skin because of the dry, recirculated air in that cabin (regardless your flight class). In other words, air travel is not “skin-friendly” to say the least. So, to help you out, we’ve had the skin care experts at Neutrogena put together a post-flight skincare routine that will combat those post-flight skin blues.
Who doesn’t love a window seat with the great views of cotton candy clouds and the extra space to rest your head? But few people know that plane windows do not protect against UV rays and at such a high altitude, this leaves the skin vulnerable to sun damage. Make sure to pack a travel-sized sunscreen, which contains a photostable SPF 25 filter to shield against UVA and UVB rays. As an added bonus, choose one that will also replenish your skin’s moisture throughout the flight to offer a juicy boost of intense hydration. We are liking Neutrogena’s travel-sized Hydro Boost City Shield Hydrating Lotion SPF 25.

Flying increases exposure to all kinds of bacteria – before taking a nap, use hydro-boosting cleansing facial wipes to help remove all traces of dirt, oil, and make-up. And don’t forget to moisturize after wiping.
We’ve all been there with the dreaded post flight puffy eye look. Apply an eye-refreshing cream or serum to sooth and revitalize around your eyes, leaving you looking like your best self, even after a long flight.

If you ever see a post-flight skincare routine that doesn’t emphasize on skin hydration, then take it with a pinch of masala. The super dry, pressurized air on planes equals the ultimate recipe for skin disaster. Excess oil production, breakouts, and dry patches are just a few symptoms our skin endures – so be sure to keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water to hydrate from the inside.
