My friend Michelle works at one of the biggest fashion retailers in the US. Not only does she dress in fine cloths, she also maintains the perfect skin. A couple of days ago she sent me a text recommending a mask for long-haul flights. I asked her to be the guest of my blog and share about her experience. Here is what she wrote:
We all know how dry and dull our face can get after just a few hours on the plane, not to mention those long international flights. Even with heavy moisturizer, it still doesn’t help. Here is an easy trick to get soft dewy skin after a long flight – apply a generous layer of cream mask before your flight and keep it on (don’t wash it off) until getting to your destination. It does the magic. For the type of mask, I prefer all natural brands with less chemical/synthetic ingredients, such as Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (you will love the delicate smell), or Chantecaille Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask (as the name implies, it is also great for after sun exposure).
Happy travelling, stay beautiful body and soul!
Now I am no expert when it comes to skincare. When I travel, I like to pop into local stores and pharmacies and check out what they have. These products I collected not only remind me of a good time; To me, they also represent part of the local culture.
