Many have developed a specific in-flight skincare routine in effort to arrive looking as fresh as when they departed. It can take weeks, months or even years perfecting a skincare routine so when it comes time to travel it can be very difficult to pare it all down to fit within airport security guidelines.
One solution is to decant your products into travel bottles but another is to collect luxury samples, or miniatures.
Many choose to wear a little bit of makeup before a flight, while we are browsing the stores in the departure hall. Once we get on the plane however it is good to remove it and start the in-flight skincare with a clean face – although this step is not essential on shorter flights. BIOEFFECT Micellar Cleansing Water is gentle yet effective; the cleansing micelles work like magnets for oil and dirt while four hydrating agents moisturize and tone the skin. Simply soak a cotton pad with BIOEFFECT Micellar Cleansing Water and gently sweep over the face, neck, and eyes, repeating until the cotton pad comes away clean.
Most of us are aware of the drying effects of flying. This is due to the recirculated air and the fact that humidity levels on airplanes are vastly different to what we're used to. A comfortable indoor humidity level is at 40-60 percent but most airplane cabin humidity levels are at around 20 percent. This low humidity completely dehydrates dry skin types, which become tight and flaky, but on the flip-side it causes oily skin types to produce more oil to compensate for the dehydration, which can then block pores and cause pimples or blemishes.
To optimize hydration, it is a good idea to bring a hydrating mist with you on board. BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist refreshes, hydrates and rebalances the skin. The ultra-light spray contains pure, soft, Icelandic water and OSA, a natural bioavailable silica from geothermal steam which strengthens the skin and helps to retain moisture. It also contains optimized hyaluronic acid for around the clock hydration. You can use OSA Water Mist both on clean skin or on top of makeup and as often as you need throughout the flight – it is like giving your skin a tall drink of water.
Speaking of water, one of the best things we can do for our skin is drink is plenty of water and stay hydrated. Good rule of thumb is to bring a refillable water bottle with you and drink 2 l of water altogether before, during and after the flight. It will keep your skin looking hydrated with the added bonus of keeping bloating in check.
The eye area is the most delicate and vulnerable to dryness so it is a good idea to pay special attention to it when airborne. The eye serum in BIOEFFECT EGF Eye Mask Treatment contains a higher concentration of our innovative plant-based EGF and works in tandem with the hydrogel-eye masks to encourage maximum absorption of EGF. The treatment reduces puffiness and the appearance of tiredness while restoring hydration and firmness to the eye area. Simply use your fingertips to gently massage the serum into clean skin under the eyes, carefully open the eye mask sachet and place one mask under each eye. Leave on for 15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes. The masks themselves are clear so you do not have to feel self-conscious sporting them in the cabin.
UV and radiation exposure increases significantly at 30,000 feet and if you are a frequent flyer it could impact your skin health. One way to minimize that risk is to use skincare products that contain antioxidants that fight free radical cell damage. BIOEFFECT EGF + 2A Daily Treatment is an advanced free radical defense with barley-based ingredients. It combines the formidable power of BIOEFFECT’s award winning, barley-grown EGF and hydrating hyaluronic acid with ferulic and azelaic acid extracted from barley. Ferulic acid repairs and prevents free radical damage and fights constant environmental aggression, while azelaic acid reduces redness, inflammation and hyper-pigmentation.
When you have almost reached your destination, give your skin a final mist of hydration and touch up your makeup if needed.
