Long-haul flight essentials

Want to start your holiday with a gorgeous glow? Here’s our must-have long haul flight essentials for your holiday packing list!

Stay moisturised

When in the air, the cabin pressure rises which results in a humidity decrease to around 20%. To put this into context, our skin is happiest in 60-70% humidity! The low humidity of the plane results in loss of moisture from the skin and strips the skin of its glow. We combat moisture loss with our Hyaluronic Plumping Mist. A quick refreshing spritz of this throughout the flight will keep your skin hydrated thanks to the low weight Hyaluronic Acid.

Avoid snacks that are high in salt and sugar and drinking alcohol. Keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water, and nibble on nuts, seeds and fruit to ensure your blood sugar doesn’t spike dehydrating you further.

Remember UV protection

Did you know that travelling by plane increases your exposure to damaging UV rays? Not only are you closer to the sun but, like most windows, the aircraft windows only block UVB rays and not the more harmful, premature ageing UVA rays. We recommend our Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25 which provides protection against UVA whilst also providing moisture. Alternatively, if you’re looking for sheer coverage, try our plumping, anti-oxidising BB Natural Protection SPF25.

Reduce puffiness

Water retention can cause the skin to puff up due to the pressure change, this can make us look tired around the eyes. Our best-selling Wonder Eye Cream contains soothing Aloe Vera and Chamomile, works to reduce inflammation and puffiness. While the Hyaluronic Acid penetrates deeply to plump and hydrate.

Minimise oil production

Your skin will try to counteract the dry cabin air by producing oil but, unfortunately, this can cause break outs. We recommend keeping both you and your skin hydrated throughout the flight to limit the overproduction of oil. Our Art of Balance Set is a collection of hydrating travel minis making it a holiday essential! This set includes our Moisture Rich Face Cream and Hyaluronic Plumping Mist which works to boost hydration levels helping your skin to regulate sebum production and decrease excess oil production.

Final tip!

Try our award-winning Stellar Balm! Not only will it keep your lips beautifully smooth and hydrated, it can also nourish cuticles as well as heal any irritated skin. Top tip: use this balm to calm and sooth any itchy insect bites you might get on your holiday!
