Skincare for a Long Flight | #SkinHacks

Celebrities are capable of making everything look glamorous: even an exit from the airport arrival hall turns into a fashion runway for them. Their style is described as “comfy chic” no matter how messy their hair and clothing look, and their skin always gives the impression that a personal facial therapist was sitting beside them the whole way on a long flight.

It is then we begin to wonder: Is it really impossible for us to look equally amazing?

Fortunately, the answer is no! Just follow through with these 5 simple steps below to come out looking like a star yourself.

Begin with a Bare Face

There is nothing more important than starting the flight with bare, cleansed skin; thus packing a travel sized makeup cleanser will be vital.

Porcelain’s Revive, Makeup Cleanser (available in 30ml) is oil-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free and works as a pre-cleanser too. It boasts a wonderful blend of Orchid Extracts that loosen impurities while providing deep hydration.

After all, the low humidity in the cabin can both dry out skin and cause oily skin to product more oil, both potentially leading to wrinkle formation and an acne break out.

Refresh Your Skin

Always double cleanse thereafter as grime can collect before even the plane takes off. This extra step also helps remove residual dirt and can refresh and awaken the skin.

Porcelain’s Soothe, Hydro Cleanser (available in 30ml) is a great cleanser option as it is made up of 80% pure aloe vera, 6 natural ingredients and is free from sulfates and parabens. Allow it to hydrate your skin as you cleanse, ensuring a clear glowing complexion after.


Enjoy a Boost of Hydration

Though it might seem tempting to kick back with a coffee or apple juice, such beverages are diuretic and can cause your skin to turn drier. Stick to drinking cups of water instead, which can leave you moisturized from inside to out.

An additional boost of hydration can be gained by putting on a soothing mask. Be sure to use Porcelain’s Revive, Glycolic Toner beforehand to gently clarify your skin and prep it for the goodness of the following masking treatment.

Porcelain’s Hydrocare Bio Cellulose Mask is a heaven sent solution to weary travelers with fatigued skin. Made of an extremely form-fitting bio-cellulose material, the mask adheres tightly to your skin, ensuring maximum absorption of its powerful active ingredients that pump moisture into the skin and purify it with natural enzymes.


Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

To seal the goodness of the mask in, be sure to pat in moisturizer while the skin is still damp.

Porcelain’s Power Trio (Soothe, Aloe Recovery Gel, Balance, Hydraclear Gel and Pure, Botanical Soothing Gel) Gels will work together to target a whole range of skin concerns in just a minute. Simply place a pump of each product in your palm, mix them together, and simply spread them over your face.

The Aloe Recovery Gel’s restorative and anti-inflammatory powers help keep infection at bay and builds skin’s resilience. It works hand in hand with the Botanical Soothing Gel to calm dry, irritated and eczema-prone skin. The Hydraclear Gel tackles acne, bacteria and excess serum so skin will remain spot-free even after being cooped up for many hours.


Sun Protection is a Must

Skincare for a Long Flight: Sun protection with our Skin Perfecting Moisturiser

Did you know? The degree of sun exposure on board a plane is exponentially higher as you get tens of thousands of feet closer to the sun and its damaging rays. Frequent fliers – especially fans of the window seat – are facing a much higher risk of developing skin cancer. Thus, it is highly recommended to have sunscreen at the ready whenever you’re in the air.

Porcelain’s Flawless, Skin Perfecting Moisturizer with SPF 20 is a power packed two-in-one sunscreen that hydrates as it protects. Its oil-free and paraben-free active ingredients also keep skin supple and soothed. It comes with sheer coverage in two shades, so it’s a great way to arrive at the airport looking healthy and fresh.


Now, Porcelain is offering you your chance to step off the plane looking like a star!
