Top Tips to Combat the Post-Flight Skin Blues this Summer

Yes, it’s nearly summer VACAY time, which means hopping onto a plane to jet off and explore the coolest of destinations across the world. However, as every city girl knows, flying can really take a toll on our skin because of the dry, recirculated air on planes – in other words, air travel is not “skin-friendly”.

To help city girls combat those post-flight skin blues, Neutrogena® has rounded up a few tips and tricks to ensure you get that gorgeous vacay glow!

1. SPF It: Who doesn’t love a window seat with the great views of cotton candy clouds and the extra space to rest your head. But few people know that plane windows do not protect against UV rays and at such a high altitude, this leaves the skin vulnerable to sun damage. Make sure to pack Neutrogena’s travel-sized Hydro Boost City Shield Hydrating Lotion SPF 25, which contains a photostable SPF 25 filter to shield against UVA and UVB rays. As an added bonus, this ultralight lotion is perfect to replenish your skin’s moisture throughout the flight due to the Hyaluronic Acid which offers a juicy boost of intense hydration.

2. Clean and Cleanse: Flying increases exposure to all kinds of bacteria – before taking a nap, use the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Cleansing Facial Wipes to help remove all traces of dirt, oil and make-up. And don’t forget to moisturize after wiping!

3. No More Puffy Eyes: We’ve all been there with the dreaded post flight puffy eye look! Apply the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Eye-Refreshing Gel-Cream to sooth and revitalise around your eyes, leaving you looking like your best self, even after a long flight.

4. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: The super dry, pressurized air on planes equals the ultimate recipe for skin disaster. Excess oil production, break outs and dry patches are just a few symptoms our skin endures – so be sure to keep your skin hydrated by drinking PLENTY of water.
