If the holidays weren’t stressful enough, now add plane travel to the mix and you’ve got a recipe for dry, dehydrated, stressed out skin that can make you look even more tired than you feel! And of course, you’re probably seeing friends and family that you haven’t seen in a while, so naturally you want to look your best at this time of year; yep, I’m right there with you! Well relax; we’ve got this covered and you can check it off your holiday stress list. Check out my tips (these are my tried and true personal favorites!) to keep your skin looking fresh, healthy and radiant during holiday travel and throughout the season; now that’s one less thing to stress about!
1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! Did I say Hydrate? This isn’t a news flash but it’s essential to use the right products to keep your skin well hydrated, plump and moist while you’re exposed to the very dehydrating, recirculated air on the plane; your regular moisturizer is just not enough. Add a super hydrating product that’s at least 10% Hyaluronic Acid – this ingredient is found naturally in your skin and is vital to keeping it well hydrated, soft, smooth and comfortable, around the clock. Our Blue Copper 5 sleep tight mask PRIME contains 20% Hyaluronic Acid and also includes our anti-gravity peptide; yay! Use alone or add a pea size amount to your regular moisturizer or foundation to plump and hydrate while keeping your skin looking smooth, firm and toned.
2. Now for Hydration, Step 2: During the flight or anytime your skin feels dry or tight, spritz on a moisture mist to instantly boost hydration and revive your thirsty skin. Our travel size Blue Copper 5 Cooling Moisture Mist features Hyaluronic Acid, and deeply hydrating saccharides to lock in moisture for up to 24 hours; soothing botanicals along with essential oil of Lavender ease stress and irritation. Count to 10 and breathe out and in; you’ll look and feel calm and refreshed.
3. Who gets enough sleep during the holidays (or anytime?). Typically the first signs of stress due to lack of sleep, jet lag and maybe too many toddies, show up in the skin. Now’s the time for serious stress busting with our Blue Copper 5 Intensive Ampoule Series. These little anti-aging powerhouses combine our super concentrated copper peptide with botanical extracts to enhance the skin’s natural recovery system; the restorative formula calms redness and splotchy skin from stress, fatigue and exposure to dry, dehydrating environments. Plus the tiny ampoules are perfect for travel (no need for big jars!) and can be used at night (recommended) or anytime skin needs a nourishing boost. Visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles while keeping your complexion comfortably soft with a healthy, radiant glow.
4. Now for my favorite travel “must have”! I’m at the age where I’ve simplified my daily makeup routine down to the basics; especially when I travel, less is definitely more! My Colour Vérité Discovery Collection features skin enhancing color combined with serious skin care treatment so each product is a time saving multi-tasker. The curated collection features our Inner Light Bio Defense Primer, Real Skin Flawless Facial Tint SPF 45, Concealer & So Much More, Radiance Blush and Healthy Lips Line Smoothing Color – everything you need to look fresh, radiant and naturally beautiful in a flash. And it’s all tucked in a small, elegant croc bag, perfect for travel.
