3 Skincare Must-Haves For Jet Lagged Skin
Say goodbye to dryness, fine lines and irritation from being jet lagged!
We’ve all been there: You’re jet lagged from a red-eye flight, and you feel absolutely miserable. Then you see your skin in the mirror, and it’s a mess — congested pores, wrinkles around the eyes and no glow to be seen. That’s why we put together this cure-all for jet lagged skin. Pack them into your carry-on and apply them the moment you arrive at your destination. These skincare picks pack a heavy punch when it comes to instant effects, and you won’t need to wait to see results. The best part is after you recover, you can incorporate them into your daily routine.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula
These exfoliating pads are your best friend, especially for jet lagged individuals. The formula itself is packed with alpha and beta hydroxy acids, which work to remove excess dead skin cells from your epidermis. This editor recommends wiping your face in circular motions twice, starting from your chin, and moving upwards. Afterwards, wait one minute, then follow with the second pad to neutralize the acids. The acids will also give your skin a jumpstart to accept any other serums and lotions.
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Refining Essence
Whenever my skin is jet lagged, I swear by this essence. It’s essentially a facial in a bottle. The quick-absorbing formula helps clear up any excess oiliness that often shows up on jet lagged foreheads and cheeks. The essence also soaks up in a couple seconds, especially when used after the exfoliating pads. To get an extra dose of help, pour some into a mini spray bottle, and use it as a mist while you fly.
Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask
Another product I have in my own medicine cabinet, I picked up a bottle while flying from Paris to New York City. The smell alone calms jet lagged minds — it’s like rubbing a rose garden on your face. The mask won’t leave a film on your face, so I recommend using it in lieu of a moisturizer after your flight. The formula will slowly absorb into your face, giving you moisturized and plump skin in the morning. Plus, who doesn’t want to smell like roses in the morning?
