Holiday season is just around the corner and the trip you’ve probably been planning for months is finally within reach. Whether it’s a city break, a tropical getaway or something more family-friendly, if you’re jetting off you’ll want to get your beauty routine planned in advance to offset the havoc that air travel can play with your skin, so we’ve got five tips to help you get prepped:

No Make-Up

If you want to strut around the departure lounge and shops looking glam, that’s great, but the first thing you do when you get on the plane is take off your make-up. Going bare-faced is one of the best ways to minimise the damage that all of the recycled air will do to your complexion. We recommend a hydrating cleanser like Decleor Bi-phase Caring Cleanser and Makeup Remover.

Masking Up

Using a nourishing mask in-flight will not only stave off at adverse effects that flying can cause for your skin, but will mean you step off the plane at your destination with healthier, more radiant skin. Decleor Flash Radiance Mask would be a great choice.


One of the biggest issues with air travel is that it dehydrates your skin, leaving you feeling totally dried out by the time you land. Once you’ve used a mask product, we highly recommend giving your face a deep wash of Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance, which is perfect for taking on a flight as it’s in its own 100ml container!


Even if your moisturiser packs a punch, aeroplanes can still dehydrate your face, so you’ll probably need to supplement your moisturiser with an additional skin-quencher. Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner is a great product to keep on hand for when you want to give your moisture levels an extra boost.

Kill Germs

This is one which may or may not have occurred to you, but aeroplanes can be a hive of bacteria, and although the cleaning crews vacuum and clear away rubbish, they probably don’t deep clean as often as they should. Keep a bottle Elemis Tea Tree S.O.S. Spray at hand when flying and you can keep your skin free from spot-causing bacteria.
