Beauty Secrets to Stay Pretty at 45000 Feet

Summer is here, and that means it is holiday time! Many of us have holidays booked and that means many long flights ahead. Looking good on a flight can be hardwork sometimes. The stress of travelling, especially with young children, can be a little too much. Most times our skincare/beauty routine is out of the window by the time we board, and every beauty rule is broken by the time the plane takes off!

 

Holidays

 

If you’re the type who travels a lot, then you need to make sure you take extra care of your skin. But how can we know what’s the best way to take care of our skin when nobody lives thousands of feet in the sky?

While flying through a couple of countries, I observed that the air hostesses were always so radiant and gorgeous. What was so interesting was how beautiful they looked despite the stress(dealing with demanding passengers)  and long hours of work on the airplane.

After a bit of probing into the beauty secrets of the air hostesses, I finally cracked their code. If you’re curious like I was or if you’re the type who loves travels and wants to maintain a beautiful skin, then this article is for you.

  1. Moisturize

I wasn’t surprised when I found out that air hostesses moisturize more than usual. Keeping your skin healthy and glowing for long hours means that you need to make sure that your skin retains as much moisture as possible.

  1. Drink plenty of water

This goes hand-in-hand with moisturizing. Moisturizing will make sure that your skin is not starved off water but you need to note that real beauty starts from the inside out. Staying hydrated reduces the chances of your skin getting dry, plus it flushes out toxins from your body. Toxin build up can find its way to your skin, so drinking water is one of the easiest ways to get clear skin.

  1. Layer your skin care products

The weather 45000 feet away can be really harsh on the skin especially when it is a long flight. I remember my Emirates flight to Dubai last Christmas, I had to layer my skincare products to get the shine and glow I wanted.

The secret is in the layering. For example, before applying foundation, they make sure they moisturize really well. The same goes for applying lipstick. Use a lip balm first then layer it with your favourite coloured lipstick. The idea is to keep the skin-rejuvenating products beneath all the makeup to get double dose of beauty.

  1. Choose your makeup wisely

Makeup can enhance your beauty. But if you’re looking for the long-term effect of beautiful skin then you need to choose makeup that will help your skin.

Don’t go for anything heavy. Choose makeup that’s light on the skin. Plant and mineral makeup can do wonders on your skin while still preserving that natural look. It’s easy on your skin while it hides away your blemishes.

Beauty Muse – Demi Lovato

The beauty muse today is Demi Lovato. I have always admired this beautiful young woman, right from her childhood days on the Barney and Friends show. I think she is a force to reckoned with in the beauty world, and with her new skincare line, that is exactly what she is, a force to be reckoned with.

I love Demi Lovato’s features, her flawless skin, pretty eyes and cute smile are the features I admire the most. I think she is a natural beauty and she always looks amazingly good. I checked out her beauty evolution on Teen Vogue‘s website, and I can see her beauty has blossomed before our very eyes.

Here are some of Demi Lovato’s beauty/makeup secrets –

On makeup

“Whenever you want to feel a little dolled up, put on some makeup. What makes me feel great is making it look as natural as possible. I don’t like to wear a lot of foundation day to day. So NYC New York Colour Get-It-All Stick is really light, but it leaves you looking fresh and with good coverage.

I always do my brows, just because I think that’s important, and they shape your face. It’s nice to feel polished when you walk into work or something.”

 

On diet

“I noticed that when I eat unhealthily, I break out. It is true. It’s like when you’re being good to your body, and then you put something in it that it’s not used to. And it’s like, ‘Wait a minute — I need to get this out of me.’

“Also, another thing is fish oil. You can either eat fish or you can take fish oil pills. Those are really good for your skin because it has omega-3s in it.”

5 Essential Beauty Products to Take Camping

Summer is around the corner (ignore the weather if it’s still windy at your end), and most people are starting to get in the holiday mood. Well, I know I am. I have started thinking of what to do with the family this summer holiday. We have never been camping as a family, and I have not gone camping in years now, so going camping is on the to-do list.

Because it has been so long, I would have to refresh my memory with a handy camping guide, so I know what to expect. I know for sure, a new large camping tent will be needed, and I know the exact one I think we would need – Urban Escape 4 Man Tunnel Tent by Halfords.

But apart from the tent, I had to look up what else we would be needing for a family with 2 kids under 4. The kids love the outdoors a lot, so I know they will be so excited to go, but once the novelty wears off, they would need to be comfortable so we can all have a good time. I would also need some essential beauty products, or else I would start to miss home too.

 

Here are some essential beauty products to take camping –

Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo is a necessity when camping. The last thing you would want to deal with when camping is smelly hair, so ensure you take a dry shampoo away with you. They are so easy to use, and very convenient to use, since you don’t have to rinse out.

 

Suncream

Suncream for the entire family is a camping essential. I can’t imagine going camping without an SPF 30 waterproof suncream.

 

Deodorant

A strong deodorant is another camping beauty essential for me. The last thing I would want is to smell funky, so a good deodorant from a tried and trusted brand like Dove, would definitely be in my camping bag.

 

Wipes

Wipes are beauty essentials for camping. I can’t imagine being without them. They are handy for wiping off makeup, cleaning hands and so on.

 

Tinted Lip Balm with SPF

I don’t bother much with makeup when camping, but having a lip balm would be great. A tinted lip balm with SPF would be fab for hydrating the lips, adding a bit of colour and for protecting the lips from the harsh sun rays.
