Long time no see! I’ve been abroad for the past couple of weeks and if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve shared videos and pics here and there. I feel like I can never get enough of traveling, but it’s also so nice to be able to sleep in my own bed 🙂 Stay tuned for lots of more posts and videos from my travels!

Today, I put together an in-flight skincare routine video that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I was able to film this on my flight to Japan, and although the audio didn’t cooperate, I hope you still enjoy.

Before you watch the video, here is a quick summary of my in-flight skincare routine that helped me last 13 hours!

  1. Clean hands – I use an alcohol wipe to wipe my hands because I want to make sure they are clean before touching my face. The plane water conditions are known to be unsanitary, so I avoid using the water to touch my face at all times!
  2. Double cleanse – I used a cleansing water on a cotton pad to wipe my face, and went in a second time using water from a bottled water. Cleansing waters just don’t make me feel completely clean, so I used clean drinking water to wipe my face off again.
  3. Tone – Face mists are so convenient when it comes to flights. Not only do I eliminate a step to have my hands touch my face, but I also love that I can constantly spray my face throughout a long flight.
  4. Moisturize – I like to use a thicker cream type product as a moisturizer since being on a plane completely dehydrates my face. I need all the hydration I can have! Depending on how dry my face is, I layer the cream twice or even three times.
  5. Lock in the work – Instead of using a face mask and scaring a flight attendant, a face oil will do. Not only does the oil substance help lock in all the work I did previously, but it’s also extra hydrating! I’ve been loving this face oil by AKT Therapy and couldn’t give more love to it during my entire trip.
