Frequent flyers and travellers – your skin needs this

From lack of sleep, UV damage and pollution to temperature changes, cabin pressure and air conditioning, flying can take a toll on the skin.

So what actually happens to the skin when you fly?

First of all, it’s interesting to note that the skin works at it’s optimum when the humidity is around that of the average outdoor climate – between 40% and 70%. Humidity levels on a flight are at maximum 10%. This leaves the barrier function of the skin weak and makes it dry. If you’re travelling long-haul, the barrier can become completely unbalanced, confusing your biological clock and cause disruption to the skin’s regeneration process. Your skin retains less water too, becoming dehydrated and slower to recover from aggressors meaning the appearance of fatigue, fine lines and dullness are more pronounced, making room for a loss of plumpness, redness and sensitivity.

So what’s the ideal routine to keep it hydrated before flying? According to Vichy, the secret lies in making sure your skincare routine is able to respond to three key needs: hydration, comfort and resistance. Reinforce the skin before boarding with Vichy Minéral 89 and protect the barrier to the elements.

DESTINATION: HEALTHY SKIN

Meet Vichy Minéral 89 – step zero in the routine of any dedicated skincare fans. With only 11 ingredients, including the highest concentration of mineralizing water from Vichy in France, your skin’s barrier is reinforced, helping it to recover from external aggressors. A combination of fifteen key minerals and hyaluronic acid — one gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 6 litres of water and it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture — hydrates the skin for up to 24 hours after application and prevents pollution particles from sticking to the skin. It’s light and non-sticky and leaves the skin’s texture improved and feeling healthier, smoother and re-plumped.

Add it to your onboard beauty bag alongside a hardcore hydrating moisturiser, rich lip balm and hand cream.  Once you’ve taken it on board, it becomes as vital for a trip to the airport as your suitcase or sunglasses. Money, ticket, passport, Minéral 89.

Now available in 30ml travel size. For more information on this hero product, visit Vichy.ie
