Airplane travel makes the skin feel so much dry due to the temperature controlled surrounding and added to that the air pressure you feel while you are miles up in the air! It tends to absorb the moisture from the skin more rapidly than while you are on land!

So after you board and are done with your dinner, you can simply squeeze out a makeup remover wipe and cleanse your face!

Taking Care of Personal Hygiene

Talking about it, during long flights or layovers for a destination, it happens that you need to use the restrooms quite often and whether you have noticed or not but people from everywhere visit the airports and these days there are so many contamination/ infections happening all around!
