The Inside-Out Guide to Getting Your Skin to Glow

Wear sheet masks


Air conditioning on long-haul flights can be damaging to the skin, and leave your skin feeling extremely dry and tight when you step off the plane. However, since I’ve discovered sheet masks, my whole skin care travel routine has changed!

Sheet masks are a little bit less messy than regular masks, as they are already saturated in powerful skin-loving ingredients. All you need to do is pop them onto your face and leave them for 10-15 minutes so it can absorb all of the good stuff. I love the Estée Lauder Double Wear 3 Minute Priming Moisture Mask, which offers nourishment and hydration for clean, smooth, and clear skin.

Rather than dealing with the struggle of decanting my bottles to meet the liquid restrictions for carry-on luggage, it’s so much easier to just get comfy, put on a sheet mask, and sit back and relax while watching a film.

Use the right oils for your skin

No one wants to have oily skin, but that doesn’t mean natural oils can’t play a role in keeping our skin healthy. I use Emma Hardie’s Brilliance Facial Oil in the evening so that the hard-working formula can work to repair my skin while I sleep. It smells absolutely beautiful and with nine essential oils including lavender, it is perfect for helping you drift off. You can mix in your oil with a nighttime moisturizer to provide a protective barrier against the cold, harsh air.

If you have dry, flaky skin that reacts to the changing weather, look out for Hyaluronic acid on the ingredients list of any product you use, as it can leave your skin feeling oh so radiant after clearing away all those pesky dry flakes. One of my favorites is the Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum, which comes in its purest form and targets dehydration, dullness, and fine lines without irritating sensitive skin.

For full body radiance, my go-to is Lola’s Apothecary, who offer an incredible range of sensual, calming, and fragrant oils to take care of your skin. The Delicate Romance Balancing Body and Massage Oil contains 30 percent rosehip oil, which helps to reduce stretch marks, age spots, and fine lines, as well as Argan oil, which boosts radiance and improves skin texture. It’s a rather versatile bathroom staple because you can use it for face, body, hair, and nails. Plus, it smells absolutely incredible, with notes of sweet orange, vanilla, lemon, and rose!

Bottom line

Regardless of how old you are or what your lifestyle is, it’s important to make a conscious effort to look after your skin. The skin you live in is yours forever, so take the time to treat it well. In return, it will take care of you!
