A Practical Skincare Regime to Protect Skin Whilst Travelling
What Are the Biggest Skincare Concerns for Travellers On the Go?
Top skincare concerns for plane travellers often include dehydration, dryness, inflammation, water retention, and sensitivity. Here are some tips to address these concerns and to energize, rejuvenate, lift naturally and efficiently, on the go:
Dehydration and Dryness: Recycled air, low humidity, and high altitude can be drying for the skin when in flight. To combat these dehydrating effects, moisturize your skin before and during the flight. Almora Botanica’s Radiance Day Face Oil contains a proprietary Elixir SAPTA COMPLEX©, a unique ultra-light natural blend of seven oils, which flash-penetrates into the dermal layers for ultra-hydration and silky smooth skin.
Inflammation: Changes in cabin pressure during take-off and landing can affect blood circulation to the skin. This can lead to puffiness, redness, or exacerbating existing skin conditions. Cleanse twice daily, in the morning and night with our ultra-mild microbiome-friendly Purifying Gel Cleanser to reduce inflammation, prevent breakouts, and hydrate skin with ingredients like soothing Aloe vera.
Water retention: Sitting in a confined space for an extended period can restrict blood flow and encourage swelling, which can contribute to skin inflammation. In addition to moving around while in flight, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding salty foods, you can keep your skin comfortable by moisturizing. Our pure performance Serum for Fine Lines is packed with Forsythosides B, a potent antioxidant, and Mango pulp extract to help stimulate oxygenation of cells, restore elasticity and firmness, and lock in moisturize.
Sensitivity: Using fragrance-free products and avoiding heavy makeup during flight, will minimize skin irritation. Remember to pack travel-sized gentle skincare products to keep your skin nourished and comforted while in the air.
