5 Beauty Tips from Flight Attendants You Can Use In Real Life

 

Count on flight attendants to know the best beauty tips that’ll keep your hair and make-up flawless even in high altitudes. These beauties spend so much time flying that they need reliable hair and make-up routine to keep them picture perfect while suffering from the unglamorous state of severely dry skin and frizzy hair.

How do flight attendants keep themselves looking fresh and radiant after long hours of flight? Here are some of their best kept secrets we can borrow from them.

  1. Make Your Skin a Priority

It always starts with good skin. The better skin you have the lesser make-up you’ll need. If you’re someone who’s always on the go, pamper your skin whenever you’re not flying. This means exfoliate at least once a week and treat your skin with hydrating face masks or nourishing facial serums every after a flight. You can even do face masks every night if you like.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Wherever you go, don’t forget to bring water with you. We suggest bringing your own water bottle (leave it empty before checking in and fill it up after security checkpoints) to avoid spending extra on water. Water is your skin’s best friend, especially when you’re up in the air for 12 long hours.

  1. Use Facial Spray

If you haven’t tried facial mist, then you definitely need to include this in your to-buy list for your next trip to the drugstore. This water spray is packed with minerals to revitalize your skin and freshen up your make-up. You definitely need one to instantly get rid of cakiness after the dry cabin air has sucked the moisture out of your face.

  1. Go For Cream Make-Up Products

As much as possible, you want to avoid powders as they add to the dryness of the face when on board a plane. When travelling, go less with skin-drying make-up and go for creamy variants such as bb creams and cream blushes. Other than adding a bit of hydration to the face, they are much easier and quick to apply.

  1. Bring a Small Tub of Petroleum Jelly

A small tub of petroleum jelly in your purse will save you from a number of beauty blunders. It can be used to keep your hair bun in place, your ends less frizzy and your lips from chapping. Whenever you need some, remember that a little bit goes a long way. You don’t want to look like a grease ball for slopping too much on your hair or anywhere you need it.

Stress-free travelling is about being prepared. Hopefully, with these tips from the real stars of the sky, flying would be much easier and more fun for you.

As summer recently came to an end, we’re now facing the monsoon season that’s probably going to give you oily skin, frizzy hair and makeup dripping down your face. The rainy season can be extremely confusing time for our skin. While humidity put our sebaceous glands on an overdrive, the constant rain can have a drying effect. Worry not though, for we have consulted some makeup gurus on what beauty switches you should make to match the changes in the weather.

  1. Opt for Lightweight Sunscreens

Just because the sun isn’t out, it doesn’t mean that its harmful UV ray are not sneakily wreaking havoc on your skin. So make sure that you apply a high SPF sunscreen for an optimum protection before going out of your house. Opt for sunscreens that have lightweight and moisturizing formula to go with the rainy weather.

  1. Change into Cushion Compacts

Put your liquid foundations on vacation and turn to cushion compacts to leave your skin feeling fresh and looking dewy all day long. Choose one that contains antioxidants and SPF to ensure that your skin stays on its top shape even with the pollution in the city.

  1. Use Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Don’t you just hate how flat your strands become when the weather starts to get colder? Fret not, and bring life back to your hair by using a volumizing conditioner and shampoo combo. For an added maintenance, perform a deep-conditioning treatment once or twice a week.

  1. Go Waterproof

One of the biggest switches you should make is to choose waterproof makeup, particularly eye makeup. Purchase good waterproof eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow beforehand. Your eye makeup will make you look your worst when they run, and they can even get into your eyes when they’re smudged.

  1. Keep Your Makeup Light and Simple

Opt for an easier and more natural look for days when the weather is gloomy. Regardless of what products you apply, there’s still a chance that they’ll run or wear off any time of the day. If you’re comfortable with skipping makeup for a day, then go for it. Otherwise, keep it light and simple. After all, you wouldn’t want to look like a wet clown on your way to work.

Now that you know what beauty switches to make avoiding frizzy hair, oily skin and running makeup in a rainy weather is already made easier. So keep these switches in mind to keep your beauty look intact even if it’s pouring hard outside.

Skincare Mistakes You Might be Doing Everyday

 

You might think that you know what’s really best for your skin, but we bet that you’re still committing some of these harmful skincare mistakes every day without even realizing it. To enlighten you, we’ve listed down some of the skincare mistakes that you might be making – and should get rid of to achieve a flawless complexion.

  1. Washing Your Face Too Fast

While it’s great that you’re washing your face daily, failing to wash it long enough might be causing more harm than good. If you just rub your cleanser over your face for 30 seconds, then you’re not giving the product much time to work and get deep into your pores. You’re only washing the top layer of the oil and dirt on your face when what you really need to do is cleanse deep in your pores.

  1. Failing to Completely Rinse Off Your Face

After washing your face, do you just splash a bit of water and immediately dry your face off? While doing this may make it seem like your face is clean, leaving traces of dirty facial cleanser on your face for hours will surely cause dryness and acne to occur. So next time, make sure that you take as much time to thoroughly rinse your face when you’re done washing it.

  1. Using the Same Towel for Your Body and Face

We all made this mistake, but it’s never too late to correct it now. The problem with this is that the moisture left on the towel attracts bacteria and allows it to grow there. While this may be used to wipe off your body, you’d certainly never want to get bacteria all over your face after washing it, right?

  1. Showering With Water That’s Too Hot

Although showering with a scalding hot water helps you relax after a long tiring day, doing it daily might dry out your skin and cause all sorts of acne to erupt. A simple way to avoid this is to just wash your face with lukewarm water.

  1. Ditching the Moisturizer

Regardless of how moisturizing your facial wash claims to be, if it’s meant to remove oil and dirt, then it’ll be drying for your skin. Ditching your moisturizer will only make you skin susceptible to dryness, causing whiteheads, blackheads and wrinkles to appear.

  1. Exfoliating Everyday

Exfoliating cleansers might make your skin feel soft and flawless, but using them daily actually makes your skin worse. Most women believe that the more they get rid of those dead skin cells, the better their skin will look. Sure, exfoliating may be the key to a glowing and healthy complexion, but over-exfoliation leave your skin exposed to harmful bacteria.

Don’t feel bad if you’re feeling guilty of any of these skincare mistakes. A lot of women also commit these mistakes. Just remember that it’s never too late to fix it and allow your skin to become beautiful, healthy and glowing.
