Skincare Travel Tips inspired by Netflix’s 'Manifest'
If you are up to date on all the best Netflix shows, chances are you have heard of ‘Manifest.’ This show is all about a plane mysteriously disappearing and then reappearing after 5 years but when the passengers come back, they face a strange new reality. We can guarantee you will be hooked after the first episode!
Since the show’s entire theme is based around a plane, we wanted to break down our best skincare tips for traveling in a plane. Airplane cabins have really low humidity, causing the air to be very dry which can lead to skin dehydration and dryness. For this reason, it’s important to know certain tips to make sure that your skin stays glowing even on vacation!
Tip #1: Moisturize the skin heavily before flying
As previously mentioned, the skin can get very dehydrated in the airplane cabin, so the best way to avoid this is to heavily moisturize the skin before leaving for the airport. Make sure you complete your entire skincare routine (it’s best not to wear makeup on a flight) and finish your routine with SPF. Although you do not feel the sun coming in from the airplane windows, the UV rays from the sun can still age your skin even through the small windows on a plane!
Pack your Collagen Moisturizer and Anti-Aging SPF 30 Moisturizer in your travel bag so that you can ensure your skin is moisturized and protected before getting on any flights.
Tip #2: Don’t use skincare on the plane
Many influencers will post pictures of themselves with face masks or under-eye masks while they’re on the plane - usually with good intentions of combatting the dehydration from flying. But it’s actually best to skip all forms of skincare on the plane! Again, since the air in the cabins is dry and recirculated air, it pulls from the moisture of the skin so adding any skincare products on top of that will dry out the skin even more.
Instead of doing your skincare on the plane, complete an extensive skincare routine prior to travelling. Grab one of our many skincare bundles and take care of your skin before you get on the plane! If you want to freshen up in the bathroom before flying, this works as well.
Tip #3: Apply a super-powered serum before your flight
To combat the dehydration your skin experiences from flying, not only is it important to hydrate the skin before traveling but it’s also important to apply a super-powered serum to add in an extra layer of protection into the skin. As part of your pre-flight skincare routine, add a serum to your skin so that you can get all the benefits of the serum while protecting the skin from dehydration, recirculated air, and UV rays from the sun.
The Collagen Moisturizer is the perfect addition to your pre-flight skincare routine since it contains Vitamin C for brightening up the skin, collagen for protecting the skin from aging, and Hyaluronic acid for bringing moisture to the skin. As a lightweight yet effective moisturizer, the collagen moisturizer is the simplest way to protect and moisturize the skin before traveling.
Let’s just hope your next flight doesn’t mysteriously land 5 years later…
Just like the show ‘Manifest,’ cross your fingers that you don’t skip 5 years into time! But with these extensive skincare tips, even if you do go 5 years into the future, your skin will still be glowing.
