5 Ways to Pamper Yourself While Flying

Air travel can be exhausting, especially when you're on a longer flight. And do you know what else gets exhausted? Your skin. I'll explain. On average, our skin is happy as a clam at anywhere between 40-70% humidity. Unfortunately, airplanes maintain an average of 20% humidity. As a result, your skin gets drier than a raindrop on a sunny day throughout the duration of your flight. But not to worry: I've gathered five great tips that will energize both your body and skin throughout your travels while providing an overall luxurious experience.

1. Wipe Away:

First thing's first: set the scene. Bringing sanitizing wipes or moist towelettes to wipe your hands and nearby surfaces (trays, arm rests, head rest, etc.) is a great way to start out your relaxation process because it removes unwanted germs and dirt. Settling into an area is so much more relaxing when you know it's clean.

2. Start with a Clean Face.

To give your skin a chance while on the plane, remove any dirt build-up and/or makeup, whether before leaving home with your own products or on the plane, with a cleansing wipe. Cleaning your skin allows it the chance to breathe, and thus remain unclogged during air travel.

3. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

If you want to feel relaxed while traveling, keeping your skin moisturized so that it doesn't dry out on the plane is probably the best thing you can do for yourself. You can bring a travel-size moisturizer or even a moisturizing mask to use on the plane to keep your skin hydrated and happy. And don't forget the chapstick, because your lips need just as much love.

4. Catch Some Zzzs…

Once your skin is pampered and nourished, get some shut-eye. Getting enough sleep is a guaranteed stress reducer. Bring an eye mask to block out the light, a neck pillow for comfort, and maybe even some earplugs to tune out the noise.

5. Crank the Tunes.

At any point during all this pampering, you can definitely plug in some relaxing music. It's is a great way to wind down and destress from a day of travel. Pro tip: I know for a fact that Spotify has some great pre-made meditation playlists.
