Experts strongly recommend not to do makeup before flying on an airplane, even if there should be a very short flight.
The fact is that the humidity in the cabin is very low, it never rises above twenty percent. By comparison, it’s almost the same if you spent more than one hour in the desert. Flying without makeup can also worsen the condition of oily and problem skin and dry dehydration. Make-up products can provoke inflammation.
The densest foundation has a lot of water, not to mention SS creams. During the flight, dehydrated skin tries to saturate the cells with moisture, extracting water from the makeup product. The accompanying ingredients also get there. It turns out that dry air in the cabin in combination with stress and makeup becomes powerful provocateurs of rashes and acne.
Not only that, makeup products, like a magnet, attract dust, dirt, microparticles of metals, and plastics. This process leads to the formation of free radicals on the skin, which destroys collagen and leads to the formation of wrinkles. Before the flight, it is best to apply sunscreen and moisturizer, which contains probiotics, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and plant extracts.
