We connected with Kristen Kellogg of Border Free Travels for her best tips to looking and feeling great while traveling.
“I always used to struggle with the fact that I couldn’t arrive feeling fresh after long haul flights,” she explained. And we totally sympathize!
One of her biggest challenges was keeping her skin clean and feeling fresh. Clearly space is limited on a plane, and you’re not equipped with your entire bathroom cabinet to primp and freshen up. Kristen’s solution? “To combat the lack of space to wash my face properly in an airline bathroom, I usually skip the makeup altogether.” Experts and Airpretty agree that flying makeup-free is the way to go. Check out our article on Why Not to Wear Makeup on a Flight and let us know your experience with flying fresh faced!
Another great suggestion for keeping your skin feeling smooth and fresh: “opt for all natural moisturizer, allowing [your] skin to breathe.” We agree! And we certainly know a thing or two about all natural ingredients and healthy moisturizers.
Advocating travel sized skincare products, Kristen recommends choosing products that are all natural and food grade. This will leave your skin clean, protected, and radiant on and off the flight. Plus, those smaller sizes are easy to get through TSA and convenient for your carry on bag.
To keep your eyes from drying out and getting irritated during the long haul flights, Kristen suggests “wear[ing] a hat to block the pesky recycled air that comes from the vents above. As an added bonus, wearing a hat hides bad hair after a long flight.”
