Many of my clients frequently travel. Whether it’s for business, pleasure, or for an appointment at our salons, traveling can take a toll on one’s skin. The recycled air inside an airplane is very low in humidity and is therefore dehydrating to the skin. Keeping a small arsenal of skin care products in your carry-on can make a world of a difference when you’re mid-flight, and not just for your skin, but your sanity, too!
I like to lightly pat a moisturizer on my laugh lines and around my eyes during the flight. Yon-Ka’s Vital Defense is my go-to when traveling because it’s specifically formulated to combat damaging environmental factors that cause oxidative stress, like pollution, UV rays, and environmental changes. I also keep a small spray bottle of alcohol-free toner with essential oils to mist on my face every half-hour or so. Yon-Ka has a great toner that I use daily, which is also available in a convenient travel size. It refreshes, tones and sanitizes the skin, and the energizing effects of the essential oils can be felt throughout the whole body.
