Flights can make your skin look dull and tired because air at high altitudes has less moisture, making the cabin air dry. Invest in good Vitamin E moisturisers, lip butters and drink water throughout your journey, suggest experts.
Shikhee Agrawal, Head Trainer at The Body Shop and Shahnaz Husain, CEO of Shahnaz Herbals Inc, have listed a few pointers:
- Taking care of the skin becomes even more essential during air travel to avoid turbulence created by dry air. To have long lasting and visible impact, it’s always a good idea to indulge in Vitamin E moisturiser as it protects and locks in moisture for all-day hydration. If you are too lazy to apply moisturisers again and again, go for a moisturiser with Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid as it possess the quality of 48 hours retention in it.
- Harsh weather conditions and lack of moisture in air has a direct effect on the lips leaving them chapped and dry but you can easily avoid it by applying lip butter or lip gloss on lips. Using a lip balm or lip butter with olive oil and coconut oil as the main ingredient is a great solution for crack-free and moisturised lips, apart from just giving a glossy look. An almond cream is ideal for the lips. Both olive oil and coconut oil are a great source of Vitamin E, which helps the lips with proper nourishment and well required shield against the dry weather conditions.
