As any seasoned traveller knows, flying can wreak havoc on your complexion, often resulting in dehydrated, puffy and irritated skin. If you’re about to enjoy some air travel, we’re sharing how you can take care of your skin at 35,000 feet to ensure you touch down holiday ready.

So why do we need a separate product for our eyes? The tissue around our eyes is different. It is more prone to dryness, more fragile, thinner and faster to show the signs of ageing and fatigue. Squinting and general facial movements such as smiling or laughing will also hasten ageing. The eye area, unlike the rest of your face, does not contain oil glands that help to keep the skin moist.This delicate area is easily prone to sensitivity when using regular skin products. Stinging, burning, oedema and milia are all common side effects of using the wrong product around the eyes.
