Flying can be an exhilarating experience, especially when you're off to an exciting destination like Bali. However, one downside of air travel that many of us overlook is its impact on our skin. The dry, pressurised cabin environment can wreak havoc on your complexion, leaving it dehydrated, dull, and prone to breakouts. On a recent 17-hour flight to Bali, I discovered the secret to maintaining radiant, healthy skin even at 30,000 feet: SAIRA Skincare. Here’s a breakdown of common in-flight skincare problems and how our products can be your saving grace.

Problem 1: Dehydrated Skin

The Issue: Airplane cabins are notoriously dry, with humidity levels often dropping below 20%. This extreme dryness can strip your skin of its natural moisture, leading to a dehydrated, tight, and uncomfortable complexion.

The Solution: SAIRA Skincare’s Hydrating Facial Oil is a game-changer for combating in-flight dryness. Just before boarding, I applied a few drops of this luxurious oil to my face. Its rich blend of organic oils, packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, created a moisture barrier that kept my skin hydrated for the entire flight. Reapplying a small amount every few hours ensured my skin remained nourished and glowing, despite the dry cabin air.

Problem 2: Puffy, Tired Eyes

The Issue: Long flights, lack of sleep, and the stress of travel can take a toll on the delicate skin around your eyes. Puffy, tired-looking eyes are a common result, making you look as exhausted as you feel.

The Solution: SAIRA Skincare’s Firming Eye Serum. This lightweight serum is formulated with powerful ingredients such as Bakuchiol, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, which help reduce puffiness and dark circles. During my flight, I gently tapped a small amount around my eyes every few hours. The cooling effect was instantly refreshing, and by the time I landed, my eyes looked bright and awake. No one would have guessed I had just spent 17 hours in transit!

Problem 3: Overall Skin Dullness and Sensitivity

The Issue: The combination of cabin pressure, lack of fresh air, and changes in altitude can leave your skin looking dull and feeling sensitive. This can exacerbate existing skin issues and lead to new ones, like redness and breakouts.

The Solution: SAIRA Skincare’s Moisturising Body Oil Wash. It’s essential to keep your skin clean and hydrated, and this oil wash does both beautifully. During my in-flight bathroom breaks, I used it to cleanse my underarms and moisturise my arms, body, legs and feet.  Its gentle, nourishing formula cleanses without stripping my skin’s natural oils, leaving skin soft, smooth, and hydrated. The light, natural fragrance also provided a calming sensory experience, which is a bonus when you're trying to relax in a cramped airplane seat.

Final Touch: Less is More

While it’s tempting to use many products to combat the harsh cabin environment, less is more when it comes to in-flight skincare. Using too many products can overwhelm your skin and may not be practical during a flight. SAIRA Skincare’s streamlined; effective products ensure your skin gets what it needs without unnecessary fuss.

So, the next time you’re prepping for a flight, pack your SAIRA Skincare and enjoy the journey, knowing your skin is in good hands. Happy travels and glowing skin awaits!
