Look your best after a long flight
For many people,Â one of the most difficult parts of any vacation is theÂ air travel. Red-eye flights, unexpected delays and long layovers can make a trip to even the most exotic and luxurious locations stressful, and that can make you look tired and weary when you should feelÂ relaxed. Travelers who want to look their best when they touch down atÂ their destination can take advantage of some savvy tips and tricks that are sure to make them appearÂ refreshed.Â
Watch what you eat
While in the air or waiting for a flight, travelers should put forth anÂ effort to drink and snack wisely. Water is the standard of excellence when it comes to staying hydrated and battling the dry cabin atmosphere, but mixing in a sports drink, coconut water or another beverageÂ that’s packed with electrolytes can give you a boost of energy.Â
Similarly, if you feel the urge to snack during air travel you should try to bypass easily accessible junk food in favor of some more nutritious offerings. Conde Nast Traveler suggests bringing along nuts, trail mix and other protein-packed foods, which can quell cravings for processed snacks while also providing enough Omega-3 acids to keep your stomach content and your complexion glowing.Â
Pack the right essentials
Having the right tools and accessories can go a long way toward fighting drab skin and puffy eyes. It may be tempting to keep make-upsÂ and moisturizers in checked luggage to avoid dealing with the hassle in the security line, but go the extra mile and carry travel-sized lotions for the trip.Â
If you know you have a specific problem that usually pops up on long flights – such as red puffy eyes or frizzy hair, focus on those issues when you pack your bag. VisineÂ drops and special makeup tricks can help brighten your eyes, while using a small amount of dry shampoo or styling gel can give your hair a pick-me-up before landing.Â
Start preparing before you reach the airport
Taking care of your skin properly starts before you even leave for the airport. Spend the night before your tripÂ pampering yourself to prepare for the long flying experience, treating your face and hair to things like a deep conditioning or a moisturizing face mask.
Another helpful tip is to use warm water for showers or washing instead of water that isÂ steaming hot. The Makeup and Beauty Blog reports that this can help avoid breaking down natural skin barriers that keep moisture in and toxins out, maintaining a healthy skin tone for a longer amount of time.Â
