What Skincare to Pack for Your Next Flight

27 Jul 2022
In-flight skincare tips and travel packing made easy.

Traveling is fun and all, but nothing is more stressful than editing our suitcases—that is, packing and repacking what we’ve deemed vital, like those chunky heels that take up way too much space, but are just too cute not to bring. (We’ve all been there.)

Another stressor? Narrowing down which skincare products to bring. Fortunately, Youth to the People doesn’t make you choose between toting your favorite serum or moisturizer. YTTP offers the best of both worlds with its TSA-friendly offerings, perfectly sized to bring with you on your next adventure.

Fan-favorite YTTP products—like the Superfood Cleanser Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum, Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum, Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist, Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, and Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream—come in mini sizes to (literally) elevate your in-flight experience. Luckily, they all come in handy when it comes to prepping the skin before, during, and after taking flight.  Many YTTP staffers swear by applying the Oasis Serum (on cleansed skin, of course) followed by the leave-on Dream Mask to lock in moisture and combat the plane’s dry cabin air. Licensed esthetician Jessie Giammalva, assistant social media manager at YTTP, also recommends an easy, one-step routine she personally swears by:

“Your skin becomes dehydrated on flights, so I like to spray on the Adaptogen Mist every hour to give my skin a dose of hydration,” says Giammalva, sharing it’s her go-to YTTP product because it requires one push, eliminating hand-to-face contact. “Additionally, the mist has ashwagandha and reishi extract, and those are really dense in antioxidants so they’re fighting against environmental stressors that could impact the skin on a flight.”

The Adaptogen Mist can be applied at any step of a routine, even on top of makeup without disrupting it, making it perfect to tote along on the go. It’s Giammalva’s #1 tip for creating a travel-friendly, effective skincare routine. 

For pro-grade vegan, cruelty-free skincare upon landing, stock up on the travel-sized versions of the Superfood Cleanser, Oasis Serum, and Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream (applied in that order), along with SPF, for a streamlined regimen that nurtures your glow and keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy.
