This year I learnt some valuable 'in-flight' lessons on how to maintain your 'beauty glow'. Since flying is super dehydrating and plays a heavy toll on your skin, it's important to put in that extra effort to ensure that your skin looks fresh, glowing and rested, especially during those long-haul flights:
Take a chlorophyll supplement during the flight. This increases oxygenation of skin cells and its alkalising & antioxidant properties assist in preventing damage to the DNA.
(My love of perfume is thrown into the beauty mix here). Pack your favourite small bottle of perfume and dab onto pulse points. This sensory 'pick-me-up' will keep you smelling fragrant & fresh.
Hydrate from within. Drink refreshing coconut water before you travel. The antioxidants & cytokinins (promotes cell division) in coconut water have a hydrating, anti-ageing effect on the skin. During those long-haul flights, keep up your water intake to maintain a healthy radiant glow.
A silk, lavender scented eye mask makes a perfect in-flight accessory to ensure you get your Beauty Sleep along the way.
Soak your skin using a soft cloth, press rose flower water to your skin then lock in the moisture with a delicate rose face oil.
Keep moving. If your flight is in the afternoon, schedule in some time for a revitalising, energetic walk outdoors amongst nature. For those early morning flights, practice an online Ballet Beautiful Cardio Class to awaken the body & give your skin a luminescent glow.
