Traveling soon? Don’t let the stress of air travel take a toll on your skin! Here are some pro tips from skin care expert, Jill Sullivan-Keating NP, RN, CEO/President of Evolve Natural Skincare & Handcrafted Soap Company, to keep your skin glowing and happy during your journey:
1️⃣ Hydration is Key: Airplane air can be super drying. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout your trip. Pro tip: Bring a reusable water bottle to refill and avoid single-use plastic! Using a messenger bag with a dedicated water bottle pocket like the ‘ULTI’ messenger bag by CONMIGO keeps your sips close at hand.
2️⃣ Lock in Moisture: Apply a light moisturizer with aloe vera, glycerin, or hyaluronic acid. These act as humectants, pulling in moisture from the air and keeping your skin supple. Don’t forget those lips – a moisturizing balm is a must!
3️⃣ Prioritize Sleep and Nutrition: Lack of sleep and poor nutrition can impact your skin. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep and choose healthy snacks. Avoid excessive fried and greasy foods, and watch that alcohol intake.
4️⃣ Stick to Your Exercise Routine: Keep your body and skin happy by sticking to your exercise routine. It’s a great stress reliever too!
5️⃣ Sunscreen is a Must: Protect your skin from harmful rays! Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
6️⃣ Pack Your Skincare Favorites: Bring your go-to skincare products; don’t rely on hotel offerings. Opt for a moisturizing soap with goat’s milk or aloe vera for a gentle cleanse.
