My Post-Flight Natural Skincare Routine



Share the love

I often see bloggers share their in-flight skincare routines, but since I’m working during flights I don’t have that luxury. For those of you who don’t know me yet, I’m a corporate flight attendant so a private jet is my home away from home.

Skincare routineAs you can imagine, after a long day of flying my skin is a HOT MESS – I’ve been wearing the same make-up for over 10 hours, my face is  super oily, and my lips are so DRY. Perhaps you all can relate to stressed out skin, so I wanted to share with you my tried and true routine to rejuvenate my skin after a long day. It’s a bit of a process, but oh so worth it!

      1. I start by removing my eye and lip make-up with Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes. I use the Kat Von D Waterproof Eyeliner, so if I don’t use this wipe before cleansing my face, my eye make-up won’t come off.

      2. Next, I use Glossier Milky Cleanser on my face. First, I apply it to my face without water and rub it in. Then, I wet my face and reapply another layer all over my face and work it in especially well around my eyes to remove any remaining mascara and eye make-up.

      3. Now that my face is clean, I do a deep cleanse (yes another cleanse–it’s been a looong day!) with Herbivore Botanicals Bamboo Charcoal bar. This all natural bar, will help remove toxins and impurities from your skin and it’s great for oily skin like mine. Another bonus is you can use it for your body too! However, be careful using it around your eyes – it will burn like a son of gun! Rinse with warm water.

      4. Okay, now my face is squeaky clean.  Next, I apply my Sisley Buffing Cream all over my face using my e.l.f. Cosmetics Pore Refining Brush Mask Tool. Remember, you should always exfoliate before you apply a mask to allow your skin to receive all the nutrients in the mask. I really love this buffing cream. Let me warn you, it’s a little pricey but it will last quite a while. I bought a bottle last summer (so a year ago now) and I still have half a bottle left, so that makes me feel a little better. Once I’ve applied the buffing creme to my entire face, I allow it to set for 3 minutes. Once it’s set, I use circular motions to exfoliate my entire face, including my lips ‘cuz they get so darn crusty after flying.

      5. Now it’s time for my mask! I use Glossier Mega Greens Face Mask. This is my go-to mask after I’ve been flying all day. It has lots of nutrients to replenish my skin after I’ve stressed it out by not drinking enough water on my flight. Once I apply the mask, I let it sit for 20 minutes then rinse with warm water.

      6. Next, I apply my Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Face Mist. I simply spray the mist on my face and wait 10 seconds.

      7. After 10 seconds, I add a few drops of Organic Vitamin C serum to my palms and rub together to warm before applying to my face.
      8. Almost there, I promise! I add a few drops of Fig + Moss Luminescent Facial Serum to my palms to warm and then I pat it onto my face, lips, and neck. Mmmmm…it smells soooo gosh darn good!
      9. Those who know me, know how much I love my Organic Rosehip Oil by Radha. It is the beauty of life and will brighten your skin beautifully. Once again, I apply a few drops of Rosehip Oil to my palms to warm and apply to my face and neck.
      10. For the grand finale, I apply my Live-Live, Bee Yummy Eye and Lip Cream. It’s made with three simple ingredients: Olive Oil, Balsam Fir,  and Pure Beeswax. I shared my  natural skincare routine with Bee Yummy by Live-Live in a previous post. Once you read, you’ll understand why I love their brilliant products.

      Whew, we made it…thanks for hanging in there with me! Keep in mind, this isn’t my everyday routine, but it’s an essential skincare routine while I’m traveling to keep my skin from stressing out / breaking out (yuck!).  Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about any of these products in the comments below.
