Why does my skin al­ways break out af­ter a flight?

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun, Fearless Beauty -

Low-hu­mid­ity air in­side planes draws mois­ture from any­thing it can—in­clud­ing skin. So, dry skin gets drier and oily skin in­creases oil-pro­duc­tion to com­pen­sate for lack of hy­dra­tion. Flaky, dead cells sit on the sur­face of skin, trap­ping oil and bac­te­ria un­der­neath, which clog pores. Dur­ing the flight, oily skin types should use blot­ting sheets. For dry skin types, ap­ply mois­tur­izer pre- and mid-flight. Re­gard­less of skin type, it’s im­por­tant to deep clean skin as soon as you get to your des­ti­na­tion. Cleanse with an ex­fo­li­at­ing wash and fa­cial cleans­ing brush to thor­oughly re­move buildup. Also, planes are not the clean­est of places, so keep hands away from your face to min­i­mize the trans­fer of bac­te­ria.
