Taking Care of Your Skin In The Air

flight taking off

Literally and figuratively, flying is a trip. You get up at some ungodly hour in the climate and time zone you’re adapted to, get some air pressurized cabin pumping out some kind of mechanically generated excuse for oxygen, which you inevitably find uncomfortable by the middle of the trip, rise to an unnaturally high altitude, eat processed food, and wake up at a different ungodly hour in a different climate and time zone. If you think this is rough on the mind, just think about your poor skin. The following is a breakdown of exactly what happens to your skin on a flight, and some ways to keep it, and yourself, calm and glowing.

Humidity Factor
One of the main reason’s our skin does not do well on airplanes is because of the dry air in the cabin. According to Melissa Kanchanapoomi Levin, instructor of dermatology at Mount Sinai, “Typically, skin is comfortable when the humidity level is between 40 to 70 percent. Most airplanes are at about 20%. That’s less than half of what we’re used to.” That drop in humidity equals dry red and flaky skin. While you may think a good moisturizer is the best solution, Elizabeth Tanzi, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at George Washingon says, “When there’s no water in the air, moisturizers don’t work as well since there is nothing to grab on to.” Her advice? Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule with the ability to bind to water. Use a small amount of serum containing hyaluronic acid followed by a moisturizer with ceramides. The ceramics will create a barrier to prevent moisture from escaping.

Greasy Skin
When skin dries out, it may try and overcompensate for the dryness by producing too much oil. Make sure to keep skin moist so your skin won’t have to fight the super dry air alone. Blotting papers are a great way to soak up excess oil if the skin does get greasy.

Altitude
Most commercial aircraft become pressurized between 6,000 to 8,000 feet, comparable to what you might experience on the top of a mountain. Kanchanapoomi Levin warns that the increase in altitude means, “less blood flow to the skin, which may make for a dull appearance.”

Water Retention
Sitting still on an airplane for a long time eating salty foods can make the body retain extra water, which can result in bloating and puffiness. Tanzi advises trying to get a little exercise in after you land to get the fluid back in circulation.

Sunscreen
You are closer to the sun, after all. According to Kanachanapoomi Levin, “UV rays are much more intense at higher altitudes, and with thinner air, there is less screening of harmful radiation.” If you’re flying during daylight hours, sunscreen in your carry-on is an absolute must.

Eyes, Nose, Lips, Cuticles
Perhaps one of the reasons airplane food is so notoriously bad has to do with the fact that the crew is counting on your impaired ability to taste properly on a flight. When mucous membranes dry out on a plane, side effects may include not only an impaired sense of taste, but dry lips, nosebleeds, and red itchy eyes. Make sure to keep some Vaseline closely for your nose and lips, and some moisturizing eye drops to keep your eyes refreshed.

Makeup That’s Natural and Romantic

Woman looking at herself in a mirror

Makeup can let us express so many different facets of our personalities. A vamped up vixen look is great for nights on the town, but a soft, romantic look works well for those spring or summer days, a first date, or it can even make a great everyday look. Let’s take a look at a couple of ways to make that natural, romantic look work for you.

The first step is to start with a clean palette. You want to start with foundation and cover up. Start off with a light coverage foundation to even out skin tone and cover up pesky blemishes. Beauty writer Lori Conte recommends skipping heavy foundations. Opt instead for a sheer liquid foundation. Dab with a concealer only where necessary and set with translucent powder. Blot with a facial tissue to remove excess product.

To get a soft, dewy look for the skin, apply moisturizer before and after applying makeup. This will set your look and add a little glow. For maximum effect, pat a drop of moisturizer on your cheekbones, T-zone and chin.

Next, you want to go to the eye. The beauty experts at Every Girl recommends a smoky eye, adding drama but not going overboard with dark hues. They recommend starting with a neutral palette of golds, light browns and nudes. Even out lid color with a light shade and then add some intensity with some metallics. Blend with a Q-tip or your finger. Beauty vlogger Zang Autumn recommends blushed nude tones complemented by a softer brown liquid liner.

When applying liner, keep it simple and clean. Apply a thin layer in short strokes at the base of the lashes until you achieve the desired look. You can even extend a bit for a cat eye. Finish off with a few layers of mascara.

Next comes blush, and for that soft, romantic look, it’s all about a rosy flush. Beauty vlogger Melisa Beleli goes for a ginger blush, while Every Girl recommends a rosy pink. Either way, it’s all about adding just a hint of color in a circular motion on the apples of your cheeks. Apply with a brush or fingertips, depending on the type of blush you’re using.

Finally, it’s time for the lips. Autumn uses a lip concealer to cover the lips, then adds a bright raspberry tone that she simply dabs on the inside of her lips to keep that bright tone in moderation. A bit of spreading with her fingertips, and viola! Every Girl recommends subtlety with their smoky eyed look, opting for a paler pink lipstick with just a hint of gloss.

To complement your look, style your hair in loose bohemian waves. Work volumizing mousse into hair and blow dry. Then wrap small sections of your hair in a curling iron, work towards the middle of the hair avoiding the roots. Then brush out and set with hairspray.

What do you do to get the soft, romantic look? Let us know in the comments section blow.

Skin Care for Men From Vine Vera

Skincare For Men Tips

Great tips for men & their skincare - Vine Vera

Watch TV or read a magazine and you will notice that the majority of advertisements for skin care products feature female models and are directed at women. However,  skincare is just as important for men since their skin takes quite a beating each day as well. Vine Vera Skin Care provides great tips regarding skincare for men so you can keep your skin looking great.

Cleansing is the single most important thing that you can do for your skin. This does not, however, mean simply reaching for a bar of the nearest soap. In fact, many soaps can actually dry your skin out. It is important to find a gel soap that can cut through naturally occurring grease while also being gentle enough to use every day.

Sometimes cleansing is not enough to get rid of built up dirt and grime. Exfoliating removes this build up as well as a layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. Use a soap with exfoliating beads to scrub away all the debris that gets caught deep in the pores. As an added bonus, exfoliating softens hair follicles so you are able to get a closer, less irritating shave.
