We have all been there before. You’ve passed security with a skip in your step, boarded your flight with a cocktail in hand, then arrived at your destination only to discover a prominent zit on your once-clear complexion. The culprit? Dry air from your much-anticipated flight.
“Airplane skin” is not a myth. According to the World Health Organization, the humidity in airplane cabins is usually less than 20%. This causes your skin to become dry and more prone to breakouts, but there is a way to keep your glamorous glow or at least keep your skin from drying during that dreaded flight. You can counteract the unpleasant effects of travel with your favorite mini beauty essentials.
