Skin Health Tips from Linda!

My name is Linda, I’m relatively new to the team here at Dr. K’s Med Spa.

I’m working at the front desk, I’m also a licensed cosmetologist and a flight attendant, so I thought I’d share some tips and tricks for maintaining skin health during the busy summer travel season.

We all know that the recirculated air on planes is incredibly dehydrating, so first and foremost, drink lots of water. You can bring an empty water bottle through security with you, and have the flight attendants fill it up once you’re in the air. My rule of thumb is to drink one liter of water for every flight hour.

Jane Iredale carries a wonderful product called Hydration Spray. It’s a pump spray in a small, travel size 2 ounce bottle that comes in three varieties: Hydrating, Anti-aging, and Balance. These sprays hydrate
the skin with active ingredients, smell great, and are great refreshers throughout a flight.

SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex comes in a convenient 0.5 ounce jar, perfect for your carry-on liquid bag. It decreases puffiness and dark circles common with travel. SkinCeuticals has also developed a specific sunscreen for around the eyes, where we commonly avoid application to prevent stinging. Skin around the eyes typically is first to show signs of aging. Of all the skin products you use at home, do not forget to bring your eye cream!

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel is another must have in your skin hydration routine. This serum comes in a convenient 1 ounce bottle, and contains hyaluronic acid (the body’s natural hydrator) and vitamin B5. Because it is a serum, it absorbs quickly, leaving your skin with a healthy, quenched glow.

Don’t skimp on skin care when you’re traveling. It’s easy to put your skin care routine on vacation, while you’re on vacation. Most skin care bottles and jars will leak with the pressure changes of air travel, so buy small “travel proof” containers and transfer your essentials to fit in a carry-on liquid bag. If you can’t bring your entire arsenal of products, select a few key item: Cleanser, toner, moisturizer and one of your favorite serums.

Bring a small packet of sanitizing wipes with you, and wipe down EVERYTHING. The arm rests of your seat, the tray table, even the window. Wear shoes when walking around the aircraft, and wash your hands frequently. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer with you and make sure to take your daily vitamins to keep your immune system strong. Keep your expensive liquid products with you in your carry on, as well as a change of clothes; if there’s anything we know about air travel these days, it’s to expect the unexpected.
