From wheels-up to touchdown, flights can wreak havoc on your skin. Plane air is just plain gross—and drying. Whether traveling for fun or business, with all the time wasted in flight, you want to land with your best foot – and face – forward. Check out these radiant skin tips to help you improve your next long-haul flight and arrive looking like you’ve been relaxing in first class for hours.
Start the night before.
The key is to start early. On the night before a big trip, it’s important to exfoliate your face to remove any dead skin cells that may have been building up. This will also help your skin better absorb all the products you use later, so you can stay more hydrated for longer.
Remove your makeup.
Remove all of your makeup as soon as you board the plane, ideally with a milk-based cleanser so as to nourish at the same time as deep cleansing. If you prefer to do this in your seat you can use a micellar water on a cotton pad instead. I don’t care for makeup remover wipes, they’re just not that great for your skin and the perfectionist in me doesn’t really believe they remove all traces of makeup, dirt and debris.
After you’ve landed at your destination, it’s time to restore the hydration that the plane ride may have stolen. Slather on a moisturizer or face cream. The intensive repair serum powerful serum enhances cellular DNA, healing and repairing the skin from within! packed with hydrating and anti-aging ingredients, locking in moisture and leaving you with an instant glow. Follow with SwissZell Eye cream for your eye contour and added skin glam.
Get some sleep.
Sleep is super important to maintaining a great complexion, so take a good quality block out mask with silk or felt lining, earplugs and — my secret that I swear by — personal humidifying breathing mask. It traps and recycles your own moisture in your breath and prevents dehydration and airborne viruses.
Wherever your travels take you, be sure to stock your bag with the (travel-size) essentials to get you there looking fresh-faced.

Nowadays, stem-cell products are popping up more and more in dermatology offices and on makeup counters everywhere. So what’s all the hype about?
Stem cells are beneficial for the natural process of healing and regeneration. Stem cells are found in all living things and have the ability to turn into all different kinds of cells and help the body regenerate.
Naturally, your skin is already made of stem cells. As you age, you start to lose them, and by the time you hit 50, you’ve lost about 98 percent of them. Yikes! When you’re young, the average turnover for your skin is about 25 to 30 days. When we get older, the production slows down, the turnover can take up to 60 days. When it’s exposed to the elements longer, it loses that youthful vibrant look. That’s where products come in.
The stem-cell skin-care products contains the proteins and amino acids that the youthful cells secrete.
This is what your body recognizes and can use to help rejuvenate and repair cells, these are the natural body healers.
The cocktail of proteins and amino acids that are harvested from the actual stem cells themselves signal your own cells to produce more collagen and elastin and ultimately fire up the rejuvenation process. Say hello to the fountain of youth.
It’s important to note that stem-cell science is still in its infancy, and even though not all dermatologists are totally convinced that stem cells by themselves are miracle anti-agers, they do agree that these products are still packed with age-defying benefits.
I believe that these products are worth using primarily for their high concentration of antioxidants, which work to reverse UV-induced skin damage, and also for their potential to improve cell turnover and renewal.
Many women especially celebrities were encouraged to wear makeup in order to perfect all the time. The race towards today’s beauty standard can increase your insecurities to the point you don’t have the courage to walk out of the house without makeup. Women often feel that makeup is the perfect shield against judgment and often opt to put on this mask to feel comfortable and hide their insecurities of not being beautiful enough. The unrealistic beauty expectations that no human can achieve completely is a lost quest.
In 2016 Alicia Keys stopped wearing makeup in public in her journey toward self-empowerment to show her true face, mind, soul, thoughts, dreams, struggles, and emotional growth. Keys only focus in enhancing her natural glow with a complete skin care regimen, serums, masks, rollers, oils, facials, SPF, healthy meals and exercises. Many artist followed her path posting bared faced Instagram pictures.
True confidence and empowerment is to accept ones flaws and work to fix your skin issues instead of using makeup to cover it up to exude confidence. Many skin issues are due to bad habits that we need to fix from the inside out and protect the skin from the harsh environment. This will help to decrease the signs of aging in the long run, something that makeup won’t be able to cover.
In addition, love yourself and stay positive to supporting each other in the realization that worth isn’t based on looks. When you chose to wear makeup once in a while on a fancy occasion to change you look and have a dramatic red carpet entrance is awesome but not to depend on makeup to feel beautiful to please the tough audience.
