Planes, trains, automobiles and other vehicles help us to quickly get from one point to another. On other hand,  your skin becomes dehydrated and dull due to climatic changes, long-haul flights and additional stress. Pressurized airline cabins contain less oxygen, which easily inhibit water retention that is damaging the skin. 

Just a few simple steps, will help you been looking fresh  as you reach your final destination .

Use sheet masks for your skin

Pressurized, recycled air on an airplane is typically dry, which means it will suck the moisture out of your skin. Apply sheet mask on face and leave it on for 20 minutes. As parts of the mask dry out, remove it and just admire the final result!

Get Rid of Dark Circles

The long-haul flights can result in fluid retention in the body. That fluid can then pool in the feet and ankles and  can also collect around your eyes, resulting in puffy lids and dark under eye circles. All what you need is a good eye cream for the dark circles around the eyes. The cream will hydrate the tender skin around your eyes reducing the intensity of the dark circles and the puffiness.

Lip Protection

The skin of your lips is much thinner than anywhere else on your body. Thus, they are often the first to present signs of dryness. The application of a lip balm can help facilitate your protection against UV rays.

Forget about make-up!

If your trip takes more than 3 hours, it's  better  to remove your makeup and wash your face. Don't forget to moisten your skin, using cream or mask.

Protect from the sun 

If you are traveling by car, moisten your face cream labeled SPF. So, protect your skin from the heat and aggressive action of sunlight. 

Care of your food

Remember that you are what you eat! If you indulge in fatty, greasy typical airline food, alcohol or caffeine, your skin will likely react by becoming dry and dull. Take healthy snacks rich in fiber like nuts and fruit, and get in the habit of carrying along a bottle of water.
