If you hear the following a few times a year “keep your tray tables stowed and your seat in an upright position,” this post is for you.
As you all know, when I’m not at home enjoying the company of my children, I’m partying at the mile-high club. And whenever I find myself here, I always make sure to take a few essentials to ensure I am hydrated at 35,000 ft. Check out my list of go-to’s while in-flight.
- No make-up
- Eye Serum
- Essential Oil
I am very intentional about my water intake (I drink lots of it) prior to flying. It helps to counter the effects of the plane’s low humidity. You should know the humidity level inside the cabin of a plane ranges from 15 and 20 percent compare to 30 to 65 percent on the ground. So drink as much water before and during your flight, it will keep you hydrated for sure. Now I can’t predict how many times you will use the restroom, but I will advise to keep drinking.
Regardless of the length of your flight ladies, please, no makeup. Makeup tends to be heavy and will block your sebaceous glands which can increase your chances of breakouts. I always board my flights with a bare face and add moisturizer once I’m in the air. Lately, I’ve been using Caudalie Intense Rescue Cream. For longer flights, I add Darphin dark circles relief and de-puffing eye serum to the mix. I suffer from dark circles, and I’ve noticed if I’m on a flight for more than six hours my eyes suffer intensely. Darphin eye serum is loaded with “peptides and extracts of passionflower, rose and licorice, it absorbs quickly to soothe and help reduce the appearance of lines and other aging factors. After each use, my “skin feels silky, eyes look smoother and overall features appear more rested.” (Dauphin, 2018) I finish it off with the Caudalie Beauty Elixir that contains rosemary essential oil, which strengthens and rejuvenates and the orange flower water that softens and hydrates the skin.
My peppermint roll-on essential oil (similar here) goes with me everywhere I go. It helps me de-stress daily and we all know getting on a flight can be a bit overwhelming with security lines, delayed flights, etc., Basically, I don’t leave home without it. For the best effect, I roll it on my upper back, wrist, and temple – it instantly puts me at ease and keeps me calm.
Last, I would suggest staying clear of alcohol and salty food if possible – they dehydrate you faster.
Thank me later.
