Packing the Perfect Airplane Beauty Kit
Which skincare and beauty products are the most suitable for use on airplanes?
When you’re flying, there are three main points to consider. Foremost is the fact that being up in the sky means less atmosphere between you and the sun; this exposes passengers to significantly higher levels of UV radiation through those tiny plane windows. Thus, applying sunscreen with a high SPF becomes a prime necessity for anyone traveling by air!
Tomato Lycopene SPF 20 Moisturizer
I make sure to always have Tomato Lycopene SPF 20 Moisturizer on hand because nothing is worse than suffering from sun damage due to a stray hour spent at the beach or as a result of long air travel. That’s why I apply an extra layer when necessary—so that I’m still able to enjoy my time in the sunshine without worrying about skin damage!
Indulge in this luxurious, thin, and creamy formula that can be used to replace your daily moisturizer—plus, it’s infused with SPF 20!
Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm
After protecting your skin from the sun, don’t forget to apply some moisture. Choose a thick and rich cream for an airplane ride, such as Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm, which you should use both day and night if needed.
It’s dry on board planes, so just open up that roll of bread they serve in business class after three minutes; it will be desiccated! To keep your face hydrated and avoid looking exhausted upon arrival at your destination, go for 100% Pure Night cream—it’ll have you looking radiant!
Transform your skin’s firmness, tone, and elasticity overnight with this revolutionary anti-aging retinol cream! Packed full of nourishing vitamins and antioxidants that help to promote a more even complexion while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm is formulated with luxurious avocado butter and plant oils for intense hydration without feeling heavy or greasy, plus it smells great thanks to its light infusion of organic jasmine essential oil! Wake up in the morning looking refreshed, revitalized, and youthful.
Pomelo Lip Balm
Don’t neglect your lips! I’m a huge fan of Pomelo Lip Balm. It provides an invigorating citrus scent while deeply nourishing and moisturizing my lips, which is especially important to prevent the dryness that can be caused by too much air travel.
Providing extraordinary hydration, this invigorating citrus-scented balm nourishes lips like nothing else, making it an incredibly versatile product to use on split ends, brows, and beards, as well as cuticles and dry patches.
Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes
Not only is the third issue notable for its seriousness, it’s also about germs. The airplane bathrooms, tray tables, and other passengers can make my “five-second rule” dirt-loving tendencies evaporate in an instant, like a Howard Hughes level of germaphobia!
To help me combat this, I carry Ursa Major packs containing essential oil-infused wipes that not only cleanse but also moisturize the skin; making them perfect to use not just after washing hands when using bathroom doors but to refresh your face or remove makeup too.
Let the power of this 4-in-1 Face Tonic formula work its magic on your skin with each individually wrapped bamboo cloth face wipe. Cleanse, exfoliate, and soothe your skin like never before using the delicate notes of orange, fir, and lavender.
These wipes make a great pick-me-up after exercising or taking off makeup—just amazing! Suitable for all types of skin, you’re sure to experience remarkable results in no time at all!
Flying can be a grueling experience, but if I arrive with some luxurious, healthy items to help soothe myself and leave looking better than when I arrived, it feels like an act of rebellion against the oppressiveness of small seats, unfair boarding systems; stale air quality; expensive baggage fees; nonexistent food options, exhausted flight attendants, and inflexible gate agents.
