Pre-Flight Skin Regimen
Posted on November 21 2019
Best skin prep before flying
It’s a known fact that long-haul flights can be devastating for your skin - the cabin’s recirculated air, stress, lack of sleep and a restricted diet are only a few changes that can cause havoc to your routine. Keeping your Première Classe Travel Kit handy on the plane is the best thing you can do for your skin, but for optimal results, your in-flight skincare routine begins before you board. Rest assured, a little can go a long way when you use your favourite products to prep your skin.
Lay the foundation by cleansing
A few days before your travel, make sure to exfoliate your skin - getting rid of dead cells will allow for a better hydration. Then, on the day of your flight or the night before, double cleanse your face using a gentle formula. Be cautious not to strip or peel the skin, which would have the opposite effects. Taking advantage of a fresh, blank canvas with a pre-flight routine will allow your hydrator to take full effect.
Nourish and protect the skin before boarding
Right before you board, apply your base with Urban Glow, a rich hydrating serum packed with the nutrients and antioxidants you need to create a strong skin barrier. After applying the serum your face, continue to prep your skin by massaging your skin deeply with a few drops of Sacha Inchi Dry Oil to lock in the moisture. Top off your regimen with an SPF moisturizer. Hydration also comes from within, so in the few days leading up to your flight, make sure to drink a lot of water.
