Skin Care Tip: The cabins of airplanes have extremely low humidity, which take a huge toll on your skin.
What not to do: The worst thing you can do is spray those misters on the skin. Why? Because since the air is so dry, it looks for water wherever it can get it and since water attracts water, when you mist the skin it takes all the water from the deep layers in the skin and gets evaporated into the dry air! The result is even drier skin.
What you should do: Your best bet is the application of a rich moisturizer with SPF prior to flight to act as a protective sealant to retain the water in your skin. After the flight, treat your skin to a moisturizing mask like Renée Rouleau Bio Calm Repair Masque to add back essential hydration. It also helps to brighten the skin from post-flight dullness.
