Flying between Dar es salaam and Seoul and spending not less than four hours on transit,there was no way I would neglect my skin.The air condition in the plane dries up the skin badly so it is important to do a good skincare routine on board a long flight.If you really love your skin make up is not something you should have on an entire 9 hour flight.I thought I should share with you guys my inflight skincare essentials since its almost summer and most people will be travelling across continents to beautiful beach destinations.
Once I am settled in the plane I wipe make up off using make up remover wipes, then use a cleanser to cleanse off the remaining and clean my face with a face wash.
And then I put on moisturiser and lip balm to protect my skin and lips from drying.You can opt for a a face mask but I like to do that once I arrive at my destination because I like to keep my routine as simple as possible during a flight.I have oily skin so I do not use the same moisturiser for my face and body so I put on extra body oil on all my exposed parts also.
When my face feels dry anytime during the flight I use a face mist to keep it hydrated and moisturised.The mist also makes me feel fresh and awake when I wake up from my 3 hour sleep and getting closer to my destination I just spray it on.
I put on minimal make up when close to landing but not always because at times I tend to feel more refreshed simply with the face mist and lip balm on.
You know about that 100ml liquid quantity rule on flights?that is why I take away hotel toiletries.They come in small bottles that I can easily use those to put in the skin care products I will need the next time I am flying (consider this when flying low cost airlines too and do not want to check in a bag that will be charged some ridiculous amount of dollars).
Make up removers by Farmasi (I got these for 3,500 tshs/1.6$) not the best but they get the job done.
Cleanser: Garner oil control complete
Body oil: bio oil
Face mist : The faceshop organ oil in water
moisturiser: Clean face mild lotion by the Faceshop

The two similar bottles that read body lotion by Charlotte Rys Cape town are the hotel toiletry package I am talking about.
