‘Tis the season for party planning, decorating, buying gifts, and of course, traveling to see your loved ones. Unfortunately, the airways are the perfect environment to cause dehydrated skin, puffiness, headaches, and more unwanted side effects. Yikes! Luckily, Environ products exist to effectively care for skin in even the harshest conditions.
Pre-flight PreparationAirplanes’ humidity levels must be kept low- very low. Humidity levels on land will usually exceed 50%, but on a plane, levels are kept around 10-20%. To put that in perspective, the Sahara desert’s humidity levels are usually measured around 25%! The results of this super dry air include dehydration, dried mucous membranes, dry skin, and fatigue.
Solution: Prior to leaving for the airport, use your Environ hydrating cleanser and toner prior to applying your Vitamin A moisturizer & SPF as usual. Lastly, strategically apply your Environ Hydrating Oil Capsules, and don’t forget to bring one with you for mid-flight application. The luxurious capsules contain vitamins A, C, E, rosemary leaf extract, and super hydrator, beta sitosterol. Hydrating Oil Capsules were formulated specifically to protect the skin in dry environments. Pre-flight, make sure to drink more water than usual, and skip caffeine or alcohol intake before flying. When you get to the airport, make sure you pick up a bottle of water before boarding.
Regardless of the time of your flight, flying is tiring!Solution: To combat jetlag, try to control the sunlight exposure as best as you can. During your flight, first apply your Environ C-Quence Eye Gel, and then wear a plush eye mask to sleep with which will help shield the delicate eye area from UV rays in addition to the plane’s dry air. The eye gels will also combat under eye puffiness that may occur as the result of unusual pressure levels and decreased blood circulation.
Apply your favorite lip balm and Environ’s Hand & Nail Cream to protect the lip, hand, and nail areas from the cold, dry air. Plus, the luxurious cream smells naturally lovely but not overwhelming, so there is no risk of disrupting a seatmate.
Dry air can result in increased oil production to compensate for the lack of humidity. This may result in a mid-flight breakout.
Solution: Keeping your skin moisturized is the best preventative measure for reducing the likelihood of a mid-flight breakout. Your prescribed Vitamin A moisturizer will make the skin more comfortable mid-flight, but a must-have traveling option is Environ’s Colostrum Gel. Both hydrating and reparative, the gel contains nutrient-dense ingredients like Vitamin C, E, Colostrum, and calming lavender oil.
Sitting in one place is not only frustrating, but it is not good for your body’s circulation either.Solution: Try to do some in-seat stretching (without bumping your neighbor). For a plane ride, progressive muscle relaxation techniques are perfect. This is where you tense and then release each muscle group one at a time keeping the muscle itself in a static position. This method of muscle movement is great for toning, keeps your blood circulation moving efficiently, and helps with relaxation. Also, you won’t look funny, because it won’t look like you’re moving at all.
