Traveling is already a hassle all by itself, but when you have a long flight ahead of you, the whole process can be even more daunting. Sitting in a seat for hours on end, not being able to eat the exact food you want, and not to mention that flying can affect your skin in the worst way.
You see, the humidity in aircraft cabins is a lot lower than what most of us are used to which means our skin will undoubtedly be in desperate need of hydration at some point. On top of that, the higher the altitude, the poorer the blood flow. So a long flight can leave your skin looking dull and fatigued in the end.
You can’t exactly carry out a full skincare routine on the plane, but what you can do is pick up a few sheet masks before your travels. Sheet masks are an ideal option because they are super beneficial and effective, and all you have to do is lay them on your face for a little while and rub in the excess serum. Boom! You’re done within minutes—which is perfect for the plane. Here are 3 great ones to start with!
This ultra-hydrating mask is formulated with hyaluronic acid which keeps your skin deeply moisturized while also reducing fine lines and flaky and rough spots caused by dryness.
Not only is it great during and after a long flight, but it would be great to use after spending time in the sun or salt water.
Collagen is one of the most popular ingredients in anti-aging skincare products because it’s been proven to reduce wrinkles, improve elasticity, and smooth fine lines; And this mask is no different!
Master Lab Collagen Sheet Mask by TONYMOLY is great for when you’re suffering from large pores, dullness, and dry patches caused by skin fatigue. After one application, it’ll give your skin the rejuvenation that it needs, leaving it soft and supple.
Now, there’s no way of actually knowing how your skin will be impacted by a long flight so it’s always good to stay prepared, and Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Sheet Mask is the perfect preventive measure.
Inspired by Japanese skincare, this mask will give you vacation-ready skin that will truly help you pull of your no-makeup look. Made with Okinawa Red Algae, rice germ oil, sweet marjoram, and wild thyme, the Luminous Dewy Sheet Mask has everything you need to achieve velvet-soft skin.
