'Tis the season to travel. From visiting family and friends for Christmas or celebrating New Years Eve in a city abroad, to making the most of your yearly work leave by jetting off somewhere special, December through to January is a period of the year that is synonymous not only to festivities but to travelling too. Set aside the glam of the party season or the chance to finally sit back and relax on a beach somewhere, long haul flights and aeroplane food unfortunately do not make good friends with gorgeous glowing holiday skin.
So, what's a jetsetter to do? Follow these 5 easy beauty hacks to ensure you arrive at your destination fresh-faced and radiant, and return from your trip dripping with post holiday glow factor.
Keep it Up – Travel is not a good enough reason to stop your basic skincare routine. Ensure you continue to cleanse, tone, apply serum and moisturise when you are on the go. Our & Edible Beauty on the Fly kit provides you with travel friendly skincare products which make this as easy as packing them into your carry-on bag.
Spray Away – One of the easiest ways to prevent your skin becoming dehydrated and dull is using a hydrating mist. Ensure your mist is alcohol-free (to prevent further drying) and rich in antioxidant-rich fruits and botanicals (try our No. 2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist) to give you immediate radiance. For best results give yourself a spray every two hours when in the sky. Your skin will be so grateful!
Plump Up Your Complexion – Our No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum is rich in antioxidants and wildcrafted Australian botanicals that work extra hard to protect your skin from the oxidative damage that cabin air can cause. It has the added benefit of providing instant plumping action, being rich in Beta Glucan and Hyaluronic Acid, which attracts 1,000 times its weight in water.
Miracle Masks – Masks provide instant radiance and nourishment, taking away from any lines, redness or irritation that creeps up on the face. If skin is dry and lacklustre, apply a hydrating mask such as & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair as a thick layer on the skin. Leave for 20 minutes and then remove with a washcloth or cotton wool. If travel is making your skin more congested than usual, our & Sleeping Beauty Purifying Mousse has you covered and works wonders at dissolving signs of any wine or chocolate that may have snuck into your holiday diet. Slather it on before bed or even during your long-haul flight!
- Stay Hydrated – Hydration is the key to getting to your destination with a glow. Stay away from alcohol, coffee and sugar-laden drinks on the plane. Instead opt for pure water. Bring along a lemon or your favourite herbal tea and use these whilst on board for additional hydration. Ensure you maintain your “greens” intake when you’re on the plane. To ensure you get your veggies, bring along some chopped carrots, celery and cucumber sticks – they will stay fresh for at least four to five hours when on the go. Berries are also a great high water content and antioxidant-packed travel snack option.
