Turn Your In-Flight Routine Into A Spa Session With These Tips | Clozette


Flying can be tiring not just for the body but also for the skin. The cold air can dry out your skin and leave your complexion looking dull at touchdown. But that doesn’t mean you need to dread the time you’re up in the air. Instead, treat it as the perfect chance for some self-pampering me-time. Here are our tips on how to make your flight feel spa-like.


Cleanse

A good beauty routine — whether on a plane or not — always starts with thorough cleansing. Make sure your face is free from makeup and impurities with the help of a reliable cleanser that won’t leave your skin dry or taut. The cult-favourite Banila Co Clean It Zero cleansing balm is on our radar.


Indulge in masks and treatments

There’s just something calming about putting on a mask and leaving it on for 20 to 30 minutes while you focus on another relaxing activity, like some light reading. Take advantage of the time you’ll be spending cooped up in your seat and treat your skin to a rejuvenating mask. Packed with the wonder ingredient Pitera, the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask will give your skin intense hydration and radiance.


Moisturise or mist

Lock in the hydration on your skin with a moisturiser or a mist. Give yourself a face massage while slathering on your hydrator of choice. If you’re looking to mist, try the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. It revitalises and boosts the skin’s radiance, making you feel — and look — refreshed.


Pamper your puckers

Lately, there's a new beauty trend that's taking Instagram by storm. And no, it's not some weird, outlandish makeup look or daring experimental skincare. It's the — drumroll please — colour yellow. From masks to eyeshadow shades, the colour yellow is stealing the spotlight right now. Are you already curious about how you can join the beauty world in this latest craze? Keep reading to know the 411.


Turmeric masks



The jury is still out on whether turmeric masks are really effective for the improvement of acne-prone and oily skin. Some say that the herb is not as effective as others claim it to be. On the other hand, there are first-hand accounts of the efficacy of turmeric masks. Even Miranda Kerr is in love with it! She uses the Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask by Kora Organics. Would you want to try it to see if it's worth the hype?


Yellow blush



For years, we've stuck to only a few blush shades. But now, we've got a new option. Using the colour yellow as a blush may seem too bold in theory but when applied properly it can work like a glow booster for the skin. How to apply it the right way, you ask? Just like any other blush, apply it with an angled or simple blush brush. Start by sucking in your cheeks so you can clearly see your cheekbones. Then, sweep the product lightly along the top of your cheekbones. If you want more intensity, you can build it up slowly. It's important to be very careful and particular with the application as blending this bright shade can be a challenge.


Yellow highlight



Wanna glow like the sun? There's the yellow highlighter for that. Since Fenty Beauty released the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife, beauty lovers have been experimenting on how to use this gleaming shade. The best bet seems to be a combination of using it in as an eyeshadow on the lids, on the top of your cheekbones, and a little bit on your chin to create that overall dewy, glowing effect.


Yellow mascara



Once upon a time, we all thought that using black mascara was the only way to showcase our eyelashes. Well, not anymore. Various beauty brands are now coming up with new choices and expanding their mascara selections. Now there's violet, electric blue, hot pink and other bold colours. But it looks like the crowd favourite is the gold-yellow hue. Its glittering texture makes eyelash strands stand out, highlighting our peepers even more than a thick coat of black goo.



Yellow eyeshadow



Yellow eyeshadow has a reputation for being too hard to work with. However, that's not exactly true. Yes, a yellow smudge will be immediately noticeable but the colour itself is not that difficult to pull off. In fact, because many of us have yellow undertones, using a yellow shade on our lids will complement our complexion. Trust us, it's won't look as bizarre as one think it would. We recommended that you buy a single shadow rather than a full palette so you can try it out first. Marigold, mustard and buttermilk shades are great gateway shades to ease into the trend.
