Arriving fresh and rested to your destination is possible; you just need to take care of yourself during the flight, especially if it’s a long-distance one. At high altitude, in fact, skin loses hydration and has to bear the stress of a closed space, with a lack of fresh air exchange. So, just as you worry about drinking at regular intervals and try to enjoy a movie while you relax, try to stick to a beauty routine made of a few simple steps. Here are our suggestions for the perfect beauty kit to carry onboard and our favorite products to use while traveling, obviously all in a version that is smaller than 100ml (3.4 oz), perfect for your hand luggage.
Start with the basics: never travel with your makeup on, especially if you will be in the air for more that 3/4 hours. So, after having taken your seat, the first step is taking out a wipe and removing all your makeup. Once it’s done, you can start with the actual beauty kit: the magic word here is moisturizer, as you’ve probably already figured out. Therefore face, lips, hands and hair treatments are necessary. If your beauty case seems too big already, choose a multitasking product that will allow you to solve everything with one touch. Your travel beauty kit could even help you overcome your flight anxiety. The ideal product is a fragrance for roll-on aromatherapy, a must-have for those who need to calm their nerves during takeoff and landing. All you’ll need to do is to apply it on the pressure points of a regular perfume in order for it to release a relaxing aroma. Last but not least, in case you won’t be able to rest, get yourself an eye treatment that doubles as concealer. Apply it a little before getting off and no one will notice your dark circles!
