Last week I traveled to Australia, and as I write this I’m sitting in my hotel in Singapore. If you’ve traveled a long distance, you know that plane travel can wreak havoc on your skin in more ways than one.
It’s very important to continue your skincare routine – with a little extra – while traveling. There are steps you can take to prevent your skin from getting too puffy, irritated, dry or too oily by using these simple steps while on the plane. And they’re all TSA friendly 😉
Start with the basics. Staying germ-free on a flight to avoid getting sick is essential. Hand sanitizer will also be important before touching your face for your beauty routine.
Micellar cleanser is an all-in-one, waterless cleanser that gently removes makeup and purifies skin with no need to rinse or scrub. Scientifically designed with micelle molecules that lift dirt, makeup and impurities on contact. This advanced formula cleanses and conditions without clogging pores, making it the perfect choice for all skin types.
I soak a few cotton rounds with the Lumière de Vie Micellar Cleanser and store them in a snack size zip lock bag, then they are ready to use when I need them.
When you fly long distances, the dry air will take the moisture right out of your skin. I love a sheet mask for the ultimate moisture it provides skin. After cleansing, sit back and relax with while adding intense moisture.
My favorite is the Lumière de Vie Moisture Intense Sheet Masque. This is the definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized sheet masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact.
Take advantage of the benefits of using a jade roller either while your mask is on or to massage in the rest of the product after removing your mask. This tool to help aid in the absorption of treatments into the skin, reduce the appearance of puffiness, and signs of aging.
I love using the Lumière de Vie Pink Jade Roller. This facial massager utilizes pink jade, known as the stone of eternal youth, and the calming art of massage to relax the face. This dual sided tool can be used throughout all areas of the face and neck to maximize your skincare regimen, while calming your skin.
For ultimate hydration after the mask, use a moisturizer like Lumiere de Vie Intense Rejuvenation Creme. It’s a super-hydrating, intensive repair treatment developed for chronically-stressed skin and designed to work with the skin’s renewal process. An ultra rich, fast-absorbing formula specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots as it imparts skin with the look of improved radiance and newly-found firmness.
Applying a facial oil over your moisturizer will help seal everything in. Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Some oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier.
I use the Lumière de Vie Renewal Elixir. It’s not just a facial oil. This gentle multitasker utilizes a weightless blend of skin-loving oils to hydrate, strengthen and smooth for renewed and resilient skin. Texture and elasticity are supported, and the appearance of dark spots is minimized, giving your skin obsession-worthy radiance. Seal in hydration, maintain an even skin tone, and defy time with this powerful treatment that revives your skin.
This is a major in-flight essential because you can spritz it easily at anytime during your flight for a bit of moisture. I love Lumiere de Vie Rosé Refresher because it contains Aloe and Botanimoist. These effectively soothe and moisturize for skin that feels soft and smooth to the touch, while Phytic Acid brightens for a more refined, radiant complexion. This versatile mist is a pick-me-up for your skin that instantly refreshes makeup and provides long-lasting hydration. Revitalize, renew and reset skin with this calming rosewater toner.
Don’t forget your lips
Yes, I know…I am writing about my in-flight SKINCARE routine, but your LIPS are skin too, and mine tend to get very dry in the air.
This is what’s in my carry on every time-MUAH Vanilla Lip Scrub. A gentle yet effective scrub that will help your lips reach their full pout potential. This nourishing formula utilizes sugar to buff away dry skin to reveal supple, smooth lips that are prepped for an infusion of flawless color.
Followed by the MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask. It’s the perfect leave on lip treatment that seals in moisture and smooths for the perfect pout. This silky lip mask is infused with shea butter for effortless nourishment while emollients smooth for ultimate suppleness, and the sweetly subtle taste of vanilla is the cherry on top.
