Skincare for 30,000 feet in the air. Here, Anna Fields of The Paddington Beauty Room runs us through the pre, post and mid-flight treatments to keep your skin in optimal condition, no matter the destination.
What treatment is a must-do before going on a long-haul flight?
Either a TPBR ProSkin 60 Plus or TPBR The Customised La Prairie Experience as both treatments will be tailored to your skins needs plus be tailored boost hydration retention before flying.
What are your in-flight travel essentials?
Try using the new generation oils like Dermalogica’s Phyto-Replenish oil or La Prairie’s Ice Crystal Dry oil you can keep adding a few drops every few hours. You don’t want to fly with a mask on as it will cause congestion. It is better to mask with a hydrating type before take-off and after landing.
Beauty tips for the time-poor traveller?
The time poor traveller tends to be the business traveller. My best advice is to make time for a quick skin routine while travelling versus skipping it. When you look good you feel better and you will therefore perform better. Try multi-tasking like masking when you are checking emails or when washing your hair etc
I recommend travelling with an exfoliant and hydrating mask. Nothing can make you feel more refreshed as quickly when you are most likely not feeling that way.
Use the hydrating mask more regularly than you normally would as the skin will feel the effects of flying and air conditioning.
Add a hydrating serum to your routine. You can even use it under your mask to give an extra moisture surge to the skin.
