How to avoid the dreaded post-flight breakout

Before your flight

We all know that air travel can be extremely dehydrating, even when you travel short distances. There are several skin supplements or moisturisers available in the market that is effective and using them regularly during the flight will keep the skin fresh looking. However, the most effective way to hydrate comes from within, drink plenty of water while in the air and your skin will thank you by looking radiant and fresh on arrival!

1. Keep your skin hydrated

We all know that air travel can be extremely dehydrating, even when you travel short distances. There are several skin supplements or moisturisers available in the market that is effective and using them regularly during the flight will keep the skin fresh looking. However, the most effective way to hydrate comes from within, drink plenty of water while in the air and your skin will thank you by looking radiant and fresh on arrival!

Claudia Fallah tip: If you are also suffering with fluid retention and swelling up during flight's I would suggest to put Lymphomyosot into your water the day before flying, during and one day after your flight.

Lymphomyosot is a homeopathic preparation from Heel, which exerts the following types of activity lymph drainage, antiedemic, detoxification, immunomodulatory and anti inflammatory action. 

It promotes metabolic processes and activates lymph outflow from the tissues resulting in elimination of toxic substances from the inter cellular space.

Indications:

Lymphomyosot is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Lymphadenopathy, mesenteric lymphadenitis
  • Chronic tonsilitis
  • Hypertrophy of amygdales and adenoid vegetations
  • Tuberculates intoxication
  • Immunodeficiency disorder
  • Allergic reactions
  • Lymphohypoplastic diathesis
  • Diabetic polyneuropathy
  • Elephantiasis, lymphatism, lymphatic edema
  • Cardiac and kidney edema
  • Complex treatment of malignant growth

2. Cleanse your skin

Many are of the opinion that a flight has a clean environment and hence cleansing is overdoing the skin care. This is a very harmful misconception. The skin excretes dirt of its own. This is why it is highly advisable that you cleanse your skin during a flight more than once, the last time just before landing time.

Claudia Fallah tip: I would highly recommend to use our award winning Calming Herbal Lotion a cooling, hydrating spritz with super calming extracts designed to comfort skin during the flight that is prone to irritation or dryness. This spritz is an instant skin pick-me-up will tone and restore, while refreshing the skin's overall clarity and appearance.

3. Remove your excess make-up

Although we all like to look our best, even on a long flight, it is advisable that you remove your make up while in the air. The makeup will only make your skin get more dehydrated and you can always re-apply a fresh covering just before you land.

Claudia Fallah tip: I would recommend to moisturise with our Intensive Repair Creme for fast recovery since the creme delivers immediate moisture and a feeling of wellbeing before applying your make-up again.

4. Moisturise your hands

We often think that by skin we only mean facial skin. It is just as important to remember that your hand and palm skin can get dry and dehydrated too. Moisturise your hands at regular intervals by applying hand & nail creams.

Claudia Fallah tip: I would also suggest lip therapy so please use a lip balm during your flight.

5. Use a Sleep Mask

One needs to sleep at least for a while during a long flight and although we all know it is hard, it is essential to maintain a fresher looking skin. Using a Sleep Mask will help you block out some of the light and aid restful sleep.

Claudia Fallah tip: If you are suffering from dry irritated eyes use some eye drops before you use your sleep mask.
