Ramping up your skincare regimen – both pre-flight and inflight – with the right products pays. Follow these steps to emerge from the plane with a dewy complexion – whether you’re raring to party on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro or about to brave Iceland’s sub-zero temperatures to see the Northern Lights.
Use your air time as spa time with these essentials for a hydrated arrival
While it’s important to keep your skin clean by thoroughly cleansing it of makeup prior to your flight, you’ll also want to make sure that it’s well prepped for the dry cabin air.
Hydrate and energise your skin with La Mer’s The Treatment Lotion, designed to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Pour a few drops on your fingertips and gently press it on your face and neck.
For the ultimate inflight humidifier, the deeply replenishing La Mer’s The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum is designed to rapidly penetrate your skin, revitalising with marine nutrients to provide continuous hydration. Apart from the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, it is infused with tiny micro-droplets of The Deep Hydration Ferment and Lime Tea Concentrate, an antioxidant. Upon application, skin looks plumped and lines are visibly softened as natural repair is facilitated.
Then plump up your skin with the legendary Crème de la Mer. Formulated by Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist who suffered severe burns in a lab explosion, the moisturiser, which has healing and anti-inflammatory properties, is packed with nourishing ingredients. At its heart is the famed Miracle Broth™: a ferment with legendary healing energies, proven to enhance skin’s natural repair. Warm the crème between your palms for a few seconds, then gently press it onto your skin. Don’t forget to massage it into your neck – an often overlooked area that’s one of the first to show signs of aging.
Don’t rely solely on the beauty products you’ve applied prior to your flight to keep your skin in tip-top condition. No thanks to the dry cabin conditions, skin is continually sapped of moisture when you’re in the air, so moisturising at regular intervals is a must – especially if you’re on a long-haul flight.
Products we love on arrival
Breezing through immigration with that glamorous glow is not as effortless as celebrities make it seem. Thankfully, a couple of simple pre-landing flourishes can help you arrive at your destination looking like a million bucks.
Before braving the elements in a new country, protect and rejuvenate your skin, hair and nails with La Mer’s The Renewal Oil – especially if your destination’s extremely cold and dry. Boasting active ingredients sourced from the sea, this aromatic oil keeps skin soft, firm and glowing. You can also massage it into nail cuticles and hair for a healthy sheen.
Look bright and well rested with La Mer’s The Eye Concentrate. Formulated with hematite, a magnetically charged mineral, it effectively reduces the look of dark circles and unevenness in tone in the eye area. Pick up a small amount with the skin-cooling applicator that comes with the product, then gently sweep it around your eyes.
