Flying can be stressful: from the rush to check in and the overweight luggage, to the crying baby in seat 16C. Don’t even get us started on the security guard, who will smugly supervise as you discard the £60 concealer that won’t fit within your liquid allowance…

However, flying need not be stressful for your skin. With the right preparation and care, you can have bright, beautiful skin from destination A to B.

Preparation is key!

  1. Take IMEDEEN supplements for 90 days, before you fly. We recommend Derma One or Time Perfection for plane–pretty skin.

Derma One helps skin look more radiant and improves moisture balance. The formulation is full of Marine Complex and also includes Zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, and Vitamin C*, which supports normal collagen formation for the normal function of the skin.

Time Perfection also contains the unique Marine Complex as well as lycopene and vitamins and is scientifically proven to help combat visible signs of ageing. The skin on your face and body will feel softer and smoother.

  1. A build-up of dead skin cells can result in clogged pores and acne, so exfoliate at least twice a week to create a smoother appearance. Ta-da! Picture perfect skin ready for those holiday snaps.
  1. Incorporate hand and body cream into your routine. After every shower, and every time you wash your hands, apply a liberal amount of cream to restore moisture that has been stripped from your skin by the soap and water.

Once you’ve settled into your seat…

  1. On long haul flights, it is important that you catch those 40 winks… or some of them at the very least! Eight hours of binge watching films will leave you with bags of the eye variety, as opposed to duty free swag. Not a good look. Invest in a neck pillow, eye mask and ear plugs and you can almost pretend you’re lying on the beach already.
  1. Dehydration will lead to dull skin (as well as headaches, or even worse), so sip on water in between your naps. There may be more exciting hydration options on the food cart, so keep your eyes peeled as it’s wheeled around.

After the wheels have hit the tarmac…

  1. After you’ve made your way through border control, nip off to the loo and freshen up. Wipe off old make up and reapply, ready for your arrival lounge debut.
  1. For guaranteed paparazzi-perfect skin, spritz a little water on your face. This will give you a dewy glow and reflect the camera flash beautifully.

IMEDEEN is the UK’s best-kept secret to younger looking skin. Their skincare tablets work in the deep dermal layer that creams can’t reach*, and the results are visible in as little as 90 days.

*Vitamin C helps protect cells from oxidative stress and supports normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin
