Whether you’re off to a wedding, partaking in a family reunion or jet-setting halfway across the world, traveling can be stressful—especially when you want to look your best. With all of the great moisturizers available, it’s easy to step onto a plane with hydrated, glowing skin, but the effects of a pressurized cabin airplane can make it difficult to maintain. The 30,000 feet altitude can rob your skin of approximately half its moisture and, by the end of your flight, leave your skin dull, blotchy and dry.

If you have oily skin, your oil glands can overcompensate for the lack of moisture and produce even more oil, potentially causing blemishes. Product-wise, here are a few things you can do to ensure your skin is protected during travel and keep it radiant during your destination stay. 

Travel-Size containers

Purchase Travel-Size Containers

Instead of purchasing drugstore travel-size products that are filled with inferior ingredients which can leave skin looking dull, dry or broken out, transfer your products into smaller travel-size containers such these by Conair ($12.30). This eliminates the guessing game of finding potentially terrible products that already come in travel-size. Sticking to a skincare routine that your skin has adapted to will keep your skin looking its best. 

Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths

Refresh and Replenish Your Skin During Flight

Be sure to make room in your carry-on for these must-have travel buddy products. On longer flights, wash your face and re-apply moisturizer. Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Clothes ($19.50) makes this process easy. These bamboo fiber cleansing cloths nourish the skin with organic essential oils and vitamins while gently cleansing away dirt and makeup.
