Before you touch down in the Greek Islands or roam the streets of Paris this year, you’ll be sitting down for many (many) hours in not-so-glamourous recycled cabin air - a key culprit leaving your skin feeling extra dry, lifeless and dehydrated


Regardless of how many hours you’ll be spending mile-high, skin prep should always be at the top of your itinerary - that is, if you're looking to feel refreshed, hydrated and energised. 


If you’re unsure where to start, we spoke to our Ultra Skin Experts for an essential three-step skincare routine. Bonus, it features three of our best-selling products conveniently packaged in a mini size. You’ll want to take them everywhere you go.

Step 1: Cleanse

It’s no secret that dry, cabin air can cause havoc to the skin; you may feel extra oily, dehydrated, sensitive and prone to the odd blemish (all of the above, if you're lucky). This is where cleansing steps in. You’ll want to thoroughly remove all the dirt, excess oil and grime from the skin to feel refreshed and leave your pores squeaky clean. 

Our experts suggest opting for a light-lathering cleanser, like Ultra Brightening Foaming Cleanser, which will refresh the skin, plus leave you looking visibly hydrated and brighter. Hot tip: take a reusable make up remover pad with you to gently pat your skin dry and wipe away residue.  

Step 2: Correct

A hydrating serum is a must for reviving stressed, dehydrated skin. One that everyone needs in their carry-on? Ultra  Hydrating Serum. It’s one of our best-selling serums, powered by three different forms of Hyaluronic Acid and our iconic B² technology (Vitamin B3 and Provitamin B5). 

Apply 1-2 pumps to your face and neck for an immediate hydration boost and watch your dry, dehydrated skin transform into a bouncy, dewy complexion.

Step 3: Hydrate

Locking vital moisture is essential to keeping your skin feeling well-nourished and comforted. During a long haul, you’ll want to reach for a rich, luxurious moisturiser like Ultra Moisturiser Cream which features powerful moisturising ingredients, Provitamin B5 and Shea Butter that soothe and nourish the skin. 

Layer your moisturiser over your hydrating serum to leave your complexion feeling soft, smooth and supple.
