Artificially circulated, humidified, purified, oxygenated and pressurized air is a necessity when flying 30,000 feet in the air, but the result is an uncontrolled loss of skin moisture.

Ever wonder what is going on in the cabin that creates this sudden change in your body.
Facts:

1. The more crowded, the greater potential of dehydration. AND when is the last time you had an extra seat beside you for napping.
2. Humidity in the cabin of an airplane can be as low as 5 percent. Your comfort level is 30 to 60 percent
3. Jet lag

See why you might be feeling a little discomfort at this point……itchy, dry, and flaky.  Starting to scratch, as we speak?

Solutions:

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Mist, Mist, Mist
3. Pack a good moisturizer.  Stow a travel-size of your favorite lotion – mine being Eight Body Moisture – and apply to your face and hands every chance you have.

Happy Trails!
