Your Beauty Carry-On Made Easy

 

FLYING puts massive stress on your skin and trying to look good while travelling is also stressful, so here are a few tips to make your next trip smooth sailing (or should we say flying) and keep your skin looking perfect.

  • First and foremost dose up on vitamins before flying, there may be someone on the plane who is sick and their germs will be circulating.

  • For comfort pack a travel pillow or your own pillow.
  • Make sure your skin care products are in the correct sized containers if you are travelling internationally.

  • Try and get some beauty sleep – pack an eye mask .
  • Before leaving home and arriving at the airport use a serum under your moisturiser to help lock in moisture.

  • Apply moisturiser as your skin does not get a great deal of oxygen while flying and use an eye serum. On a long haul flight you might want to re-apply your moisturiser .
  • Use a  moisturiser that has Hyaluronic acid in it – it reduces water loss.

  • Wear a minimum amount of make-up for long haul flights and if you’re brave enough, remove your make up in the evening.
  • Pack wet wipes or a hand sanitizer – keep your hands clean as you are constantly touching items and then your skin.

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
