How To Layer Your Skincare - The Travel Edition

With low humidity, dry cabins and recycled air, flying can wreak havoc onto your skin and lead to all kinds of skin issues: an accelerated oil production, a dehydrated dermis and of course, acne. To help your skin stay healthy, supple and glowing even when you’re on vacation, a well-rounded skincare routine is vital and helps repair, rejuvenate and replenish dry, dull and dehydrated skin after a long-haul flight.

STEP 01: The Miracle Cleanser from Herbal Essentials 

Start with a deeply nourishing cleanse with the Miracle Cleanser from Herbal Essentials. This antioxidant-rich cleanser is powered with the goodness of Sunflower Seed Oil and Glycerin and swiftly removes dirt, makeup and oil from the skin.


STEP 02: The Enzyme Facial Exfoliant from Grown Alchemist

Exfoliation is key for optimum penetration of products and to ensure that they sink into the skin quicker (plus work better) and we love the Enzyme Facial Exfoliant from Grown Alchemist for just that! This granule-free exfoliator is a master at sweeping away dead skin cells (for that soft, supple texture!), evening out the skin tone and smoothing fine lines.


STEP 03: The Refreshing Toner from Herbal Essentials 

This beautifully hydrating toner from Herbal Essentials is a dream to use; infused with pure Rose Water (a natural emollient that helps to hydrate the skin) and Cucumber Extracts (that soothe and calm the skin), the Refreshing Toner floods the skin with intense hydration and makes for the perfect step three of your routine.

STEP 04: The Supreme Skin Face Serum from Mauli

Powered with 16 handpicked botanicals that work synergistically to repair and rejuvenate the skin, the Supreme Skin Face Serum from Mauli is an opulent Ayurvedic face serum that boosts collagen production and gives you a silky-soft complexion that radiates with vitality.


STEP 05: The Rich Cream from Augustinus Bader

A beautifully soothing antidote to dry, dehydrated skin, the Rich Cream from Augustinus Bader is backed by over 30 years of research and innovation and powered with TFC8®, a proprietary mix of skin-enhancing ingredients that actively work to rescue, repair and replenish skin after a long flight.

STEP 06: Ultimate Protection Sunscreen SPF 40 from Ixora

This all-natural and clean sunscreen from Ixora has a Sun Protection Factor of 40+ (!) and works to both nourish and protect the skin, making it the perfect last step of your skincare routine.




To complete the routine, layer your skin in intense hydration with the Lip Moisturizer from Malin + Goetz that is packed with heavy-duty fatty acids and helps achieve a soft, supple and healthy pout.
