Private jet charter beauty products for women
The phrase “private jet charter” conjures up images of opulence and glamor. But even the most luxurious flight can take a toll on your body, with high altitude and jet lag often leaving passengers feeling tired and faded. Air Charter Service (ACS) has compiled five top beauty tips from leading makeup artists, which can help to counter the effects of flying. Use them on your next flight to arrive fresh-faced and beautiful.
1. RMS Beauty's Magic Luminizer
A killer combination of low moisture, tiredness and dehydration can play havoc with your skin while flying. The key to quickly pepping up a tired complexion, according to international makeup artist Megan Lanoux? She suggests dabbing a nourishing highlighter on the cheekbones or under the eyes to make your face look dewy and bright before stepping off your luxury private jet charter.
RMS Beauty's all-natural Living Luminizer has been a cult product among makeup artists, celebrities and green beauty bloggers since its launch in 2009. But the brand’s new Magic Luminizer ($38) is even better for mile-high beauty, as its top ingredient is nourishing coconut oil and it also contains soothing cocoa seed butter and jojoba oil.
2. Susanne Kaufmann Calming Mask
According to dermatologists, our skin is healthiest when the air humidity is at 40-70%. The average airplane cabin’s humidity is around 20%, providing less than half the moisture your skin needs to stay supple and fresh. This can cause skin hydration to dip, making it dry, dull and flaky.
Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge loves to apply a face mask while flying to give her skin a nourishing boost. But even if you have an oily or combination complexion, avoid harsh oil-reducing products such as strong clay masks, which can dry out already sensitive skin. We love Susanne Kaufmann’s 100% organic Calming Mask ($75). It’s packed with skin-nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and sunflower seed oil to keep your skin moisturized and supple, and battles in-flight puffiness with healing St John’s wort and natural anti-inflammatories marigold and aloe vera.
3. Piz Buin Mountain Suncream Very High SPF50+
Have you ever been on a mountain hike and come back with sunburn? Just imagine how much more damage the sun can do at 30,000 ft. Speaking to Travel + Leisure, Dr Doris Day, a New York dermatologist and author of Forget the Facelift, claims that flying for 60 minutes can be as damaging to the skin as 20 minutes on a tanning bed. And private jets often fly higher than commercial airlines, which is great for your comfort and flight times (because you’re flying above the weather, and friction is lower at higher altitudes) but not ideal for your skin (no protective clouds and a less protective atmosphere). So it’s crucial to keep your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays while in the air.
Piz Buin Mountain Suncream Very High SPF50+ ($15) is specially developed for high altitude conditions, with advanced sun filter technology providing UVA and UVB protection. It also contains extract of Edelweiss to defend the skin against the effects of solar radiation.
4. Colgate ProClinical Pocket Pro
The strain of flying makes many of your body’s systems slow down or scale back. That includes saliva production, which causes food particles to remain in the mouth and produce a sulphur compound that causes bad breath. Lower levels of saliva also mean more bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay and halitosis.
As well as eating healthily, drinking plenty of water and avoiding sugary snacks, dentists recommend brushing your teeth regularly while in the air. Travel in style with the Colgate ProClinical Pocket Pro ($87), a small electric toothbrush that’s perfect for a travel case. Though compact, it boasts an impressive 25,000 brush strokes per minute, comes with a timer and handy travel pack, and can be easily charged via USB.
5. Phyto Secret de Nuit and Ouai’s Dry Shampoo Foam
There is no bigger giveaway that you’ve just spent the night on a long-haul flight than dull, lifeless hair with a headrest-shaped flat patch. Here are two great fixes recommended by leading hair care experts:
- Wash and condition your hair either immediately before your flight or – if your private jet has a shower or bathtub – early on in the journey. Next, apply a nourishing hair treatment such as Phyto Secret de Nuit Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream ($40) and bind your hair in tight braids. Let it dry naturally, unbinding the braids before landing for lush, bouncy waves.
- Alternatively, wear your hair in a loose ponytail or bun, using an inflatable neck pillow to minimise back-of-head flatness. To boost volume and banish greasy roots, apply Ouai’s Dry Shampoo Foam ($28) shortly before your luxury private jet charter lands.
