Winter is in full swing which means more travel, which can wreak havoc on your skin. Did you know that according to the World Health Organization the humidity in airplanes is usually less than 20%, which is 5% less than the average humidity in the Sahara Desert?

Save your skin this winter season by following these simple steps:

  1. Hydrate: Although you can’t bring your water bottle through airport security it’s important to pick one up in the airport before boarding your flight so you can stay hydrated in the air.
  2. Avoid Caffeine: Although tempting on an early morning flight, it’s important to avoid caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea because they can cause you to lose even more fluids during your trip.
  3. Moisturize: To combat skin dryness, use a rich moisturizer and a hydrating mist throughout your flight.
  4. Glasses: To prevent itchy, irritated eyes, reach for your glasses instead of your contacts. Hydrating eye drops can also help to soothe dry eyes.
