How can you stay healthy on a flight?
* Choose a window seat to benefit from air flow around the plane
* Wipe down flat surfaces around you
* Keep your medications in your carry on bag
* Moving up and down the aisles each hour to prevent deep vein thrombosis
* Don’t drink alcohol and coffee
‘Make sure you’ve got your washbag full of all your in-flight necessities,’ Kaia told FEMAIL.
In hers she has a lip balm, hand cream, face serum, roll-on deodorant, mini hairbrush and a good quality face mask.
‘If you can, don’t wear makeup at all on the day of the flight and focus on prepping your skin,’ she went on to explain.
‘For me, this involves washing my face with warm water and applying my Golden 8 serum and lip balm every hour.
‘Make sure you’ve got your wash bag full of all your in-flight necessities,’ she told FEMAIL (pictured with her husband Matt)
‘I love feeling my skin drink the moisture and knowing it is as full and plump as it can be ahead of my flight. If you wear makeup, then as soon as you get on the plane remove it and start your serum and balm applications.’
As for the maxi dress, this comes down to more than just comfort.
‘Not only is a maxi super comfortable, but they allow you to easily access all parts of your body so you can keep the moisturising up during the flight,’ she said.
‘I apply and reapply a soothing cream to my legs, arms and even stomach while I’m sitting in my seat and lather my hands.’
‘The reuse of the same air can also pollute your skin and clog your pores,’ Kaia (pictured) said
Your skin dehydrates on a flight because the airplane air is recycled, so there is very little fresh oxygen.
‘The reuse of the same air can also pollute your skin and clog your pores,’ Kaia said.
‘I know every travel tips blog recommends drinking water, but it really is the most important tip of them all.
‘During the flight, you lose a tonne of water from the dry air and crazily the humidity is around 10 – 20 per cent, like a desert.
‘So, try to drink 250ml every hour and stay away from super salty foods which will only dehydrate your skin more.’
