SISJ BEAUTY & LIFESTYLE: TRAVEL ESSENTIALS & SKIN CARE ADVICE >
As you all know, I am currently enjoying the amazing views from the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore – #sorrynotsorry! Today I am talking all-things girlie – hair, beauty & travel essentials. Ideally the name of the game is TRAVELLING LIGHT. To maintain a fabulous and fresh jet-setter look, it’s all about our carry on essentials and preparation. After a long hall flight we are squirmy, tired and most likely, dehydrated. Here are some of my travel tips to maintain hydration on the inside, as well as the outside.
TRAVEL HEALTH & HYDRATION:
Unfortunately there’s no secret solution I can give you to combat squirmy-seat whinging or bad plane food! However, I can equip you with the knowledge and some products to stay hydrated and happy during your travels. The number one health problem that affects passengers, is the results of a lack of humidity. The air inside the plane cabin can do a number of things, mainly dehydration (inside and out). I find my skin becomes increasingly dry and itchy throughout the flight, and it’s even worse if I’ve had a spray tan. You can hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking plenty of water. To look after your skin on the surface, continually apply moisturiser to your face, neck and hands. I also use a hydrating facial spray, a lot of lip balm and eye drops to make the journey more pleasant. Caffeinated beverages can also promote dehydration, so try and avoid these.
