In Flight Beauty

Are you a long haul traveler, do you take short flights, are you a seasoned business passenger that is always looking for new ways to keep your skin healthy during a flight?

There are lots of beauty essentials readily available to take in your travel bag, but are they the right products for flying?  Rachel McAlley our Beauty Writer has found two brands that may be able to solve any in-flight beauty issue.

The main four concerns for our skin on a flight are: eyes, face, lips, and hands.  Due to the cabin’s air conditioning, the temperature in the plane, and the length of flight we can suffer from many skin problems in-flight, including; itchy tired eyes, dry and dehydrated skin around the forehead, nose and jaw line, chapped or cracked lips, and either hot sweaty hands or cold dry hands.

Here are our in-flight ‘must haves’ in order to ease the worry of looking after our skin whilst in the air.
