As airborne Australians struggle with dry skin from flying

Team Costhetics loves to jump on the jet track to cover the hottest trends, news and information on aesthetic improvements and achievements against aging.

You can understand why we are thrilled, the plane trip is back to Australia. We are essential less delighted with the tsunami of skin problems that cause flights in travelers. Whether you dream of flying to exotic places or just to the coast, Costhetics wants you to make sure you pack the right skin care products before, after and while traveling.

Fasten your seat belts and let’s fly …

Air travel dehydrates the skin

The humidity in the cabin is about 20%, which is less than half of what your skin needs. To compensate for this, the upper layers of the skin moisturize the deeper layers, causing skin deflation.

  • Solution: Increase your hydration mode before, after and while traveling. This includes a little skin care in the on-board toilet. Particularly effective are serums and oils.

An air trip causes an accumulation of water in the skin

Flying both dehydrates your skin and causes it to retain water, though not in balance. When you don’t move and sit, circulation slows down and water starts to collect. You may notice this in your feet, but it also fits into your facial skin, making it swollen.

  • Solution: Stretch your legs. Getting up every 20 minutes or so (if allowed) will greatly help your skin. It can also help your heart.

Alcohol deprives you of oxygen

Low cabin air pressure and alcohol do not mix. Low blood pressure prevents your blood from remaining saturated with oxygen. У That’s why drinking on a plane makes you feel like garbage, Chrissy Teigen quotes that she did not drink the last flight and came home, “feeling like a normal, healthy creature.” Now you know why, Chrissy.

  • Solution: If you are drinking because the flight is causing you anxiety, work on other soothing techniques including breathing and meditation. If you just love to drink, squeeze a lemon in plain water and pretend.

Increased sun exposure

Window seats have their merits, but they get great de-merit exposing your skin to harmful UV rays. By adding an insult to sunburn, flying puts you closer to these UV rays than on planet Earth.

  • Solution: If you find yourself sitting under a window, just lower the curtains. Easy to sing.

Overdrive oil production

Forget about the snakes on the plane, Samuel Jackson covers them up. These are swellings in the plane that need to be fought. Dry air in cabins dehydrates the top layer of skin, while causing an increase in sebum to create a protective oil barrier and reduce moisture loss. Unfortunately, this leads to acne after the trip.

  • Solution: Before planting, use a gentle, non-detergent peel to cleanse dead skin cells that would otherwise retain oil.

How to prevent skin problems in flight

You may have been bitten by an aviation error, but your skin really wants you to stay put. In terms of your skin, flying is a carnival of horrors, and heavy flying can lead to various skin problems. Some consequences of the flight can literally pop up before landing. Others are waiting to serve as unwanted reminders of your travels after you land home.
