Skin Care Tips For The Frequent Flyer 

To hydrate your skin internally, drink plenty of water before, during, and after your travel. Avoid alcohol and coffee, which dehydrate skin.  

Stay Hydrated 

Hydrate and prevent moisture loss with a face oil or moisturizer. Consider products with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides for hydration.  


Even if you're sitting by the window, apply SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum sunscreen before your flight. UV rays can damage skin through airliner windows.  

Protect Your Skin 

To allow your skin to breathe, use lightweight makeup or none on flights. If needed, use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream for light coverage.  

Avoid Heavy Makeup 

A face mist will refresh and nourish your skin during the journey. Find mists with rosewater or chamomile to reduce redness and irritation.  

Use a Facial Mist 

To avoid dryness and chapping, use an SPF lip balm. Reapply frequently, especially for long trips or in dry regions.  

Protect Your Lips 

Travel-sized cleaning wipes or micellar water can remove dirt, oil, and pollutants from skin during long trips. This can keep skin fresh and prevent outbreaks.  

Stay Clean 

Rest before and after your journey to reduce jet lag skin affects. Dark circles, puffiness, and dullness can result from sleep deprivation.  

Stay Rested 

To prevent facial puffiness and edema from fluid retention and poor blood circulation, move around the cabin occasionally.  

Stay Active 

Use a hydrating nighttime mask or heavier moisturizer before bed to replenish your skin's moisture.
