Glowrious In The Air || Travel Edition

This post is brought to you by Glowrious Airlines. Oh well.. or something along the lines. We asked our beauty staff to share their beauty hacks with you on how to keep your skin glowrious while you're up in the air.

As I just came home yesterday (shoutout to all you peeps whose plane was also massively delayed) this is the perfect time to post our little travel tips compilation. We ask that you please fasten your seatbelts at this time and secure all baggage underneath your seat or in the overhead compartments.  

So you are finally on vacation or are about to board for a business trip and want to look your best when arriving at your destination? Sleeping in the air plane in an uncomfortable position, next to a snoring passenger or a crying infant can take a toll on your beauty sleep and skin but we've got your back. 

Stay hydrated & plugged-in

It's no secret that the air is drier up there. As it gets colder the further you are from earth's surface the cold air can't store as much moisture. The dry cabin air wont only affect your skin but also your throat, so staying hydrated is crucial. If you are like me and don't like to be on the lookout for the flight attendant in order to ask for water, you can bring an empty bottle through the security check and fill it up before you enter the plane. Noise-cancelling headphones are bliss when you have troubles falling asleep due to ambient noise. Also, make sure you have your hand sanitizer with you and use it on your hands before applying skin care to prevent breakouts. And as Miss V tends to say "Don't touch your face. Fight them pimples before they even occur."

Level down your make-up game

Since the air is so dry, you want to keep your skin hydrated, so try to avoid make-up. Many of us remove their make-up completely while in the plane and apply a bit concealer, mascara and lip tint shortly before landing. I have to admitt that I am not that person. While I remove my base make-up (BB Cream, contour powder, blush) completely, I always leave my eyeliner on during flights. Winged eyeliner is just something I never leave the house without, but this is really just my personal preference. What I like to do instead is putting eye patches under my eyes to get rid of dark circles and puffy eyes. As some of you know I am a big fan of Petitfées Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye Patches

The power of 3

 Well... not quite the Charmed one, but the 3 step sheet masks are pretty powerful too. Instead of bringing many little sample jars and sachets on board, some of us swear by taking some of our favourite 3 step sheet masks on board as they take up less space and are more convenient. Also, you wont end up emptying your sponge bag in order to find that one tiny jar as everything is neatly sealed together.

TROIAREUKE GPS Masks come with a cleanser, sheet mask and a moisturizer to seal the ingredients and keep them from evaporating. They diminish redness and calm irritated skin while pampering it with moisture. 

COSRX One Step Moisture Up and COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kits come with a Low pH cleanser, a presoaked pad and a sheet mask drenched in snail mucin essence. 

Reload

Depending on the length of your flight and your skin's needs you might want to follow up with a face mist or a sleeping pack. Sleeping packs are moisture sealing champions and will help keeping the dryness under control. Face mists are another great alternative to keep you fresh and moisturised throughout the flight. In fact, many flight attendants swear by using face mists as they keep their faces fresh and glowing without messing up their make-up.  COSRX Low pH PHA Barrier Mist comes in a travel-friendly 75ml bottle and helps your skin maintaining low pH level.

 

 

 

Lip Service

This is something our entire beauty staff does (males+females). We all take our lip masks on planes to prevent chapped lips. 

Petitfées Oil Lip Blossom Camelia Seed Oil Lip Mask is our current favourite as it's packed with Camelia Seed Oil, Bees Wax, Argan Oil, Persian Lilac Flower Extract, Moringa, False Daisy Leaf Powder and Turmeric Root Extract. Our Glowrious Boys prefer the Petitfée Oil Blossom Sea Buckthorn Mask due to its scent, which is less floral (more on the herbal side) and the colour of the lip mask. This one contains Sea Buckthorn, Jojoba Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Tumeric Root Extract, Shea Butter, Chinaberry Flower & Leaf Extract and Moringa Seed Oil.

So there's that. The other thing is that we all double-cleanse, peel, tone and moisturize as soon as we get to our hotel room or back home after a flight. Dead skin cell buildups, stress ( due to boarding, delayed flight, jetlag etc.) along with dirt and bacteria are all things that can promote breakouts. We hope this blog post was helpful and wish you all a safe and pleasant flight! ❤

Right now I’m travelling Scandinavia for 1 month( train&ferries). I filled my favourite products in travel friendly bottles, put the samples to use, bought small sleeping masks&wash off masks&sheet masks and than put it in an organizing toiletry bag. Thanks to this bag, I can still do my 10 step skincare routine twice a day. :3

Good article! I always drink a smoothie before a flight and I avoid salty food on the plane to prevent fluid retention.

Nice post. I like how honest you are about not taking your eye liner off. I also always bring my empty bottle because it’s eco-friendly. 🙂

I lowkey hoped for a holiday post from you guys. Cracked up while reading this cause I started imagining you guys traveling together. Miss V going crazy with that hand sanitizer yelling at yall not to touch your faces, Azraelle refusing to take off the eyemakeup and everyone rolling their eyes and the boys being all extra with lip masks. Seriouly guys start making videos already. oh and thanks for sharing these I always kinda feel shy and awkward to ask for water and this bottle idea is great to avoid contact with people lol

Today it’s products, not product, as I am going to tell you about two sheet masks that almost look the same, but work in ever so different ways on your skin. One is calming to your skin, the other soothing. - I know, you are thinking ‘But Virginia, that does sound so similar! How are they actually different?’. No worries, I will tell you in a minute, first I want to talk about the packaging!

I’ve told you many things about vitamin C and how marvelous it can be for our skin in terms of anti-ageing and protection from environmental influences. But do you remember that I also told you about how easily its effects are supercharged by manyfolds if you just combine it with a product containing vitamin E?
Btw. it looks and feels like pudding. It doesn’t taste like it tho. Sad life of Virginia.
