6 Genius Beauty Tricks for Traveling

No comments

When it comes to holiday travelling, maintaining your sanity let alone your looks can be a real challenge. Here, six globetrotting beauty pros share their best tips to help you stay gorgeous on the fly.

First-class skin

I apply a thin layer of Aromatherapy Associates Anti-Aging Overnight Repair Mask [$88; amazon.com] before long flights. It contains nourishing oils that protect the skin from cabin air, plus fatty acids for a plumping effect. You'll actually arrive at your destination looking better than you did before takeoff!

Eye essential

To prevent jet bags aka dark circles and puffiness post-flight I apply soothing undereye patches before takeoff. Your fellow travellers may look at you funny at first, but your bright eyes will be envied come arrival. I swear by  Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels [$30 for 8 pairs; amazon.com].

No-fuss hair

My signature hairstyle in the sky is a topknot. Loosely twist strands into a high bun and secure with a creaseless fabric elasticthe higher the bun, the more voluminous hair will be when released. Unwind upon arrival, spritz with dry shampoo and tousle for soft, pretty waves.

Lip service

"Chapped lips make for an unsightly greeting, so I layer on a thick balm to act as a shield against the drying effects of flying. My favourite is Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve [$6; sephora.com], which can also be dabbed  on parched cheeks and cuticles.

Beauty spritzer

I always stash a travel-size bottle of Evian Mineral Water Spray [$14 for two; sephora.com] in my carry-on. It's a great multi-tasker! I spray my face when it feels tight from the dry air and lightly mist my hair, giving it a little crunch, to revive moisture and bounce.

Ready to glow

Flying sucks the life out of my skin, so I apply Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Primer ($48; nordstrom.com) for subtle tint and luminosity before landing. Then I tap a smidge of concealer wherever I need a little extra coverage. I swirl a creamy blush onto the apples of cheeks and a little on my forehead, too, for a healthy-looking flush.
