Exhausted after a long-haul flight and feel it’s written all over your face? Cabin pressure and recirculated, dry air plus the lack of quality rest when travelling to a different time-zone in the air can wreak havoc on your skin – dryness, inflammation and breakouts. Not to worry, we have got you covered with tips below to combat “jet-lagged” skin…

#1 Drink

Drink plenty of water upon landing to combat dry skin. Sitting in cabins with high-pressure re-circulated air that is very low in humidity lead to serious skin dehydration. Make sure to drinks lots of water or coconut water to help hydrate your skin and body. Avoid coffee, alcohol, and soda that will dry out your skin, and can lead to breakouts.

#2 De-puff

Arriving your destination with a puffy face and eyes? Blame water retention for that post-flight puffiness which has accumulated during your time in the air. Try to massage your skin with a facial tool, for example, jade roller, to help with lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. Store your facial tool in the fridge for about 15 minutes before use. Next, apply serum or face oil to your face and massage from inside out starting next to your nose. Be gentle.

#3 Hydrate

A deep-hydrating face mask is a quick fix for post-flight thirsty, fatigued skin. After cleansing, apply a generous amount of hydrating gel or cream mask to your face and neck. Let it sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing off. Look out for hydrating and soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe and calendula.

#4 Sleep

After just one night of disrupted sleep on a long flight, you can see the impact on your skin with dehydration and dark circles. Catching up on sleep is simply the best thing you can do for skin recovery. Trouble sleeping? Try taking melatonin supplements that can help you reset your body’s internal clock so you can fall asleep at the right time. Don’t forget to sleep with an overnight mask to revive dry, tired skin.
