Start Your Vacation Right with These Skincare Tips

Post on August 08, 2019 | SOGO Malaysia
Time for vacay! Woohoo! You’re all packed, holding your tickets, sitting on the plane—and wow, your skin is crying out for help.

Planes are like breeding grounds for foreign bacteria; you don’t know what’s getting stuck onto your face. Your skin also suffers from the loss of moisture when you’re elevated so high in the air, and stress and anxiety might just seep into your face. It feels like your vacation is over before it started.
Not true! Read on and start your vacation right with these skin care tips.


Hydration, hydration, hydration. Prepare your face before it gets sucked dry. We recommend exfoliating your face a few days before the flight as removing the dead skin cells will help the hydrators make their magic. For further protection, use an antioxidant-rich serum then a hyaluronic acid product to lock the hydration into your face, and you’re all set to fly!

During Flight 

Try washing your face in the bathroom sink on the plane—it’s impossible. Bring hand sanitizer and cleansing wipes instead. If your skin is already feeling parched, use a cream with ingredients like glycerin or propylene glycol. Or a face mask with the ingredients hydrating amino acids or even watermelon extract (don’t mind the people around you; they’re just jealous of your glowing skin). Don’t use a face mist as the air will only suck out more water that it can find. Moreover, use sunscreen! You’re thousands of feet closer to the sun; clouds reflect harmful UV lights through that tiny window beside you. For the finishing touch, use a thick lip balm to keep your lips moist and perky. And now, get some shut-eye!


Touchdown! Get off that plane, and get to a hot shower. No matter what time of day it is, exfoliating is recommended to get the icky things and the airplane smell off you. And similar to the pre-flight procedure, hydration is key. Use products with salicylic acid to reset the skin and prevent any breakouts and puffiness. After that, apply toner, moisturiser, and sunscreen (if it’s still daylight outside), and go have fun! 

Your skin is glowing, and you’re already Insta-ready for the first of many photos you’re going to post on social media.
