The most anticipated time of year is upon us as it means its time for jet setting out to our favourite summer hot spots for a week of relaxation, fresh sea air and sipping cocktails beside the pool.
Travelling is the first step to your summer holiday fun and although it is filled with excited anticipation of whats to come it can also take a toll on your skin. Have you been known to suffer with spots and blemishes after being on a plane? This is could partly be to due to the pre-holiday stresses we all face.
Whether you spend 45 minutes on a plane or 14 hours, flying can have a negative effect on your skin that can dampen your holiday spirits and cause worries for your impending beach selfies. A main factor to lack-lustre, did-I-just-walk-through-a-desert-to-get-here skin is due to the humidity on a plane. Your skin is at its most comfortable when the humidity is between 40% and 70%, however, it is usually around 20% on a plane.
Whilst this is certainly not ideal or comfortable for your skin, there are ways to help you land at your destination without you feeling like you’re 99% skin and 1% water.
The humidity on board and those mid-air G and T's can cause your skin to dry out and become dehydrated. But have no fear, we aren't suggesting you fly completely alcohol free, just ensure you're topped up with water throughout your journey and keep your skin hydrated. Water is incredibly beneficial for both inside and out, there's nothing nicer than a chilled glass of water in the hot summer sun and its great for hydrating and keeping your skin clear too!
We have gathered some of our favourite organic products to help hydrate your skin both on the ground and whilst in the air. Follow the links to add the products to your basket and kick start your holiday! Each product has a perfectly formulated mixture of ingredients to ensure your skin is healthy and hydrated.
To ensure your skin feels soft, hydrated and vibrant,we recommend our Lavender & Lemon Toning Mist or Rose & Chamomile Toning Mist. Toners are a great way to soften, soothe and aid moisture absorption. Our 5 star rated toners are 100ml, so are the perfect carry on essential for your hand luggage.
TIP: Our Toning Mists are also a great holiday addition as they double up as a refreshing facial and body spritz when you need a quick burst of moisture. Who wouldn’t want to smell this good pool-side?
Toners are a great source of moisture, especially on a long-haul flight so to lock it in we recommend using a moisturiser because whats better than baby soft skin that smells amazing too?
