Long-Haul Flight Tips

Suitcase packed, ooh where are you off to? Whether you’re jetting towards a once in a lifetime dream destination, a big important global meeting or beaming at the thought of seeing distant loved ones – a long haul flight heralds a big adventure. And it’s a big moment for your skin too, airplane air is dryer than the Sahara Desert. Fact. The desert has an average of 25 percent humidity, and most planes are below 20 percent. So! We’d better look at some smart long haul flight tips to make sure you and your gorgeous mug bounce off the plane looking as radiant as when you bounced on. Eyes on our Sheet Face Mask range and favourite travel-sized toiletries.

Before the flight

Imagine a long haul flight as if you’re travelling through the desert for 6 hours to get to where you're going. Then let’s get prepped accordingly. Like packing, you can prepare your skin the week before you fly by cajoling it into being its most hydrated happy self, before you step onto the plane. Guzzle as much water as you can and get some early nights in for 3-4 days before take-off. We’ve got the next bit covered – flight skincare essentials. When your skin is being ravaged of moisture, we’ve got everything it will thank you for in hand-luggage friendly miniatures. In the meantime, keep up your daily skincare routine including one of our hydrating moisturisers day and night.

Get ready in three steps

Drink water and plan your snacks

It’s time to fly and you’ve packed and prepped like a pro, but hang on… have you thought about grabbing some healthy snacks en route? Not all airlines are as in touch with your wellbeing as you are, and typical airline snacks like nuts and crackers can be salty and create desert-like conditions in your body. Nobody wants to get off the plane feeling slightly shrivelled. So, you’ll get brownie points from your skin if you pack some angelic snacks – veggie sticks, fruit, a homemade sandwich and some herbal tea bags. Your whole body and being is affected by the dry air on flights so keep up the water intake and watch what you eat as you soar above the clouds.

Prep your skin before your flight

Taking your skin on a long haul flight needn’t be a dehydrating drama if you give it a little bit of TLC before the off. Why not get into an ancient Roman state of mind and think of a luxurious face mask with our Mediterranean Almond Milk with Oats Instant Soothing Mask. Inspired by wise ladies who knew a thing or two about pampering, this mask has a creamy, porridge-like blend of oatmeal from the UK and Community Fair Trade organic almond milk from Spain. This dreamy mask smooths onto the skin and helps provide instant moisture for your skin to guzzle up. It’ll feel nourished and protected and ready to take on any environmental hazards. And what about those loyal limbs too? Yep, they need a serious dose of something special, after showering, try our Olive Nourishing Body Butter, enriched with nourishing shea butter and helping deliver 72-hour moisturisation – that means the flight and beyond.

Travel kit

Make sure you hand luggage complies with regulations

Now this is the Krypton Factor challenge we all face before flying anywhere. How to get everything liquid-like for our skin’s needs in 100ml or under and then cram it all into a clear bag approx. 20cm by 20cm sealed or tied at the top? Where’s Challenge Anneka when you need her? Well, we’ll try hard to take her place. Double check your airline restrictions before you fly, generally liquids tend to include creams, lotions, perfumes, oils, mascara, lip gloss, deodorant and toothpaste. So think hard what you need the most on the flight and when you land. Always include a face moisturiser, naturally.

小贴士 2:充分放松

小贴士 4:应对时差

不论是欣赏大自然的美景还是其他文化的景观魅力,我们都想充分利用旅行中的每分每秒。而时差有时就会有所阻妨碍,所以要善待自己,在第一天适应调整。随着我们飞越不同的国家/地区和不同的时区,我们身体内的生理时钟(叫做生理节律)会发生混淆,不知道现在是什么时间。是睡觉还是醒着的时间? 是现在还是晚点休息并消化? 因此,睡觉、情绪和排便之类都可能开始混乱。一登上飞机,你就可以努力趋近最终目的地的作息时间,以便尽快调整到最佳状态。在目的地的睡觉时间和吃饭时间休息和进餐。大量喝水,在走廊走动,并且伸展四肢有助于你的身体快速适应新环境。
