After much deliberation, planning and anticipation there’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of getting on a plane to your next destination, watching the hills pass by as you roll into a new location via a train, or watching the sunrise as you drive through the end of a long road trip.

 

Its these feelings that make us feel alive, that remind us there is a big wide world outside of our own that we can often get so consumed and caught up in. Some people don’t like the physical travel to destinations, but we think that’s half the fun! Plus it can sometimes take up a lot of time, so you may as well enjoy it!

 

Its one of the few times where we can find ourselves out of reach from society with the pure ability to switch off from all distractions, demands and worries and woes of the world. When sitting on a plane 30,000 feet in the air it can almost feel like time is frozen, and gives us the freedom and ability to either soak up the stillness of the present moment, reflect time passed or even more exciting get enthusiastic for what adventure is to come.

 

The only thing we don’t get so enthusiastic about in terms of travel is what it can do to your skin. Although you may be stationary for lengthy periods of time, the damage done to your skin is not! The low humidity atmosphere in re-circulated air-conditioning of a plane can dry the surface of the skin. Consequently, as a defence mechanism our skin produces more oil to compensate, ultimately resulting in potential breakouts and build up of dead skin cells. Built up oil and congestion is also an inviting breeding ground for bacteria.

Vitamin B Active Lotion To help avoid this situation from the root cause of the problem being lack of moisture, we need to make sure the skin is deeply moisturized and nourished. Our favourite Mayella choice of weapon being the Vitamin B Active Lotion

Laced with Rose, Lavender and Bergamont the lotion is perfect for refining pigmentation and balancing oil flow. It increases cellular hydration whilst healing damaged skin ultimately boosting the vitality of dull, tired supressed skin. The powerful aromatherapy pure essential oils offer supreme hydration that penetrates to a cellular level whilst clearing dead congested tissue cells.  

 

Apply before the travel period to help seal in moisture, offer hydration and provide protection. If it’s a long haul flight or train ride, use a cool facial wipe to refresh the skin’s surface temperature as well as remove any oil that may have built up and reapply the lotion. Mayella Fibre Cloths are soft, non abrasive and fit neatly in your cabin baggage. Once settled into your next location use the Vitamin B Active Lotion again to maintain the moisture rich surface composition of your skin.

  Extra tips:
    • Try to minimize make up and just throw on a big pair of sunglasses
    • Fill up on more water, get as much sleep as you can and have a healthy meal
    • UV rays at high altitudes that travel through the planes windows are stronger so be sure to apply a layer of natural sunscreen
    • Remember the golden skincare rule - don’t touch your face!
  3 interesting facts about Travel & Transportation:  
  1. It is estimated that 3.77 billion people worldwide took a flight last year rising almost 1 billion more than a decade ago in 2006. With the world’s population sitting at 7.5 billion people that’s roughly half of the world’s population.
  2. Most Scandinavian countries determine automobile and traffic fines based on the offender’s income level. It is rumoured that one of the world’s most expensive speeding tickets was issued to a driver who was cited driving 40km/h over the limit. This particular driver just happened to be a heir to a successful meat company and was fined an astronomical amount of €170,000. Let’s hope he learnt his lesson to stick to the speed limit.
  3. The longest train journey in the world without changing rail lines is between Moscow, Russia to Pyongyang in North Korea at 10,214 km. It is scheduled to take 7 days, 20 hours and 25 mins... Is there by any chance just a direct flight?
