Worried about arriving in style? Keep your skin and makeup fresh with these tips.
Make sure to prep your skin properly before applying makeup so that it lasts, and looks fresh, even after flying. This means cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing before applying a primer and your makeup. Using a makeup setting spray will help with your look's longevity too.
Outside of your skin-care routine, make sure to drink plenty of water before, during and after your flight to keep your skin glowing and fresh. Water and green tea and great drinks to sip on in-flight, and green tea will give you a caffeine boost without the dehydrating effects of coffee.
Beauty products for your carry-on:
Always carry a multi-purpose balm or gel that you can apply to lips, hands and any other dry spots. Facial wipes will allow you to take off your makeup, if you want to reapply before landing, and deodorant and a travel-size perfume will help you feel fresh upon landing.
