What exactly is airplane skin? It's skin that's dry, itchy, and flaky from the incredibly dry air on the plane! It's not just uncomfortable and itchy, it's nasty-looking, too! But I can help. If you're traveling by plane soon, pay close attention to this list. Here are 7 ways to cope with airplane skin.
7. Facial brushes

There are a wide range of facial brushes that are portable and can easily be carried on the plane with you. These brushes can help to rub away any dried skin on your face and they also help if you want to rub any moisturiser into your face whilst on the plane.
6. Use a lip balm around your mouth
Often with dry skin your lips become very dry too. If this is the case then make sure that you moisturise your lips regularly with a good lip balm. In my opinion sleeping with lip balm on will make your lips even softer and moist because it does not rub off easily.
5. Wear a clear hydrating mask
This is particular useful on long flights where the air will dry out your skin fairly rapidly. The mask can be applied on flight and in case you are worried about people seeing you, once the lights are turned down no one will notice anyway. In my opinion it is worth receiving a few odd looks from people if it means keeping your skin refreshed.
