How to Look FAB from Take-Off to Landing
With Singapore having one of the most powerful passports in the world there’s more reason for us to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the hectic city life.
While taking a flight may be as regular as clockwork to most of us, if you don’t take care of skin en route to your destination, your FAB and glowing skin can quickly turn to DRAB.
So, whether you’re a spontaneous traveller or a frequent flyer, here are some of our favourite beauty products that can let you look and feel fresh from take-off to landing!
ALL ABOARD: SKINCARE TO LIFT YOU UP
Aside from fastening your seatbelt, another key thing to remember onboard an airplane is to constantly moisturise. While it’s especially true for long-haul flights, there is no exception for shorter flights as well. As our skin has acclimated to higher humidity on-ground, it dries out and dehydates more easily when humidity drops to less than 20% in an aircraft.
In order to combat low airplane humidity, we recommend the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, which leaves your skin 2.3X more hydrated. This non-greasy, lightweight moisturiser is suitable even for sensitive skin While you’re at it, don’t miss out on your hands, arms, and any other exposed areas. Rather than carrying different bottles of moisturisers, L’Occitane’s internationally best-selling hand creams can also be used to moisturise the other parts of your body, leaving them nourished and delicately perfumed. Lastly, a common oversight – your crowning glory. Give your hair have some lovin’ with Sephora’s dry shampoo, which helps to get rid of static in your hair while giving it that fresh-from-the-shower scent
ARRIVALS: GETTING READY FOR LANDING
After what seemed like an eternity and x movies later, it’s finally time for landing! While we encourage you to be comfortable in your own skin, there’s really nothing like strutting out the airplane with that jetsetter glow. So about 30 minutes before those wheels touch the ground, whip out your make-up kit for a quick touch-up!
The Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control gives you matte and smooth skin while hydrating from within. For that pop of colour on your face, sweep on some Clinique Cheek Pop that comes in 15 lovely shades. We know that ain’t nobody got time to put on eye make-up after a flight (unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret model), so just stick to defining your brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – which many claims to be their holy grail product for on-fleek brows! And finally, pucker up with Burt Bee’s Tinted Lip Balm for that perfect just-bitten look and much-needed hydration.
Hydrating your skin to look FAB doesn’t just mean slapping on some products on your face, but also taking care of yourself from inside out. So, for your next flight, bring along these adorable water bottles so you can drink up. Ask for the attendants to fill up your bottle during the in-flight service and most often than not, they’ll be happy to.
