Travelling to exotic places is always exciting, but long-haul flights can have debilitating effects on your skin. We share some of the best skin care tips and products from our friends at Sigi Skin, to ensure you look rejuvenated and fresh when you step off that flight.

During flights, your skin becomes really dehydrated

As recycled air on board tends to be dry, this will deplete the natural moisture from skin, leaving your face feeling taut and unhappy. To combat this, it is important to moisturise intensively. Sigi Skin’s  Dew Potion face mist is a great solution – the Aqua 3G in the mist has a refreshing and hydrating effect, and adds moisture to the skin.

Prone to UV rays

As you fly towards higher altitudes, you get closer to the ozone layer and this poses a greater risk of exposure to the UV rays. It is important to use sun protection to combat the dangers of overexposure, such as pigmentation and premature aging. Protect against the sun by wearing dark clothing with tightly woven fabric, in particular long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and accessorise yourself with sunglasses or a hat that shades your face and neck. Sunglasses with lenses that have 99% to 100% UV absorption provide optimal protection for the eyes and the surrounding skin. Most importantly, protect the skin with sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher such as the Morning Glow Sunscreen  – an all-vegan product made with natural ingredients. It leaves no residue and no greasy film after application, so your skin always looks fresh.

Dullness of skin

There is less blood flow to the skin at higher altitudes. This eliminates the natural ‘glow’ that your skin has, making it look plain and dull. Drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself and do some light stretching sporadically during your flight to get your blood flowing. Not only will this prevent muscle cramps, but it will put that glow back on your skin.

Travel Acne

The change in cabin pressure and the low humidity could be one of the reasons for a breakout during your travels. Sigi Skin has got you covered with their perfect travel size series: The Minis’,  comprising their Morning Glow Sunscreen and the  Kaleanser Face Wash. It is an ideal companion for your travel adventures; to cleanse your skin from the grime and toxins and protect it from pollutants and the harmful UV rays.
