Men’s Guide To Skin Care While Traveling Via Airplane


Most men neglect their skin 90% of the time, let alone while they’re traveling. Every time most men get on a long plane ride, they end up getting off the flight with their skin looking 50% worse than when they took off. It’s because they haven’t been doing things while flying that they should be doing. There are many things that you can do to help improve you skin in preparation for your flight. I’m going to give you a full rundown of things that you should exactly do to prevent your skin from looking horrible due to traveling.

Men, Do This Before A Flight To Protect Your Skin

Here’s a simple list of things that you need to do before you fly to keep your skin looking fresh and alive. Most men will likely not do most of the things that I’m suggesting but it’s my duty and obligation to mention these things anyway. Take simple action, do what I tell you and your skin will look better.

Pre-Flight Tone

You should be using a toner on a regular basis. If you’re not, then you’re doing it wrong from the get go. One of the main reasons that you need to use a toner is to better balance the skin pH levels. This will help keep your skin less oily and greasy. Additionally, it helps prevent drying which often happens on a long flight. Be sure to use a toner and apply some just before you leave to the airport.

Protect Your Eye Bags

The skin under your eyes is very delicate and thing. Flying makes you tired, stressed, and dehydrated. Those three factors will lead to ugly bags under your eyes. When you’re flying, it happens and you simply can’t avoid it unless you apply something to the area. For the most part, I recommend two products. You can either use the Elite Serum or the Kiehl’s Eye Alert to help make your under eyes look better. If you choose not to use those products then I suggest you find something that contains caffeine at least. This will help nourish your skin.

In-Flight Action

There are certain things that you need to do if you want to keep your skin looking healthy during your flight and after your flight. One of the things is to take action while flying. Use face wipes to help rehydrate your face and skin. All you need to do is head to the bathroom mid-flight and tone your face. It’ll help rehydrate and boost things up.

Moisturize Your Skin

Be sure moisturize your skin and use some type of high-quality product before you deplane. I’d also suggest that you apply some eye cream as well before getting off the plane. This will replace the moisture levels which have been lost during your flight. Your skin is parched and it needs to be replaced.

Drink Lots Of Water

You must consume one cup of water per hour of flying in order to keep your skin hydrated. Dehydration is horrible for your skin. It can lead to some of the worst case of pimples and dry skin that you can imagine. Stay away from the booze, soda, coffee and everything else. Instead, opt for water.

Those simple tips can help most men avoid damaging their skin while flying or traveling via airplane. Take action and save your skin in the long run!
