How to Get Glowing Skin on a Long Flight
Check out these radiant skin tips to help you improve your next long-haul flight and arrive looking like you’ve been relaxing in first class for hours.
Just as we relax our minds with a holiday after periods of stress, or relieve an aching body with a soothing massage, our skin also needs a dose of intensive care every now and then to keep it in top condition.
Luckily, you don’t need to visit a spa to indulge in a pampering facial treatment. SK-II’s much-loved sheet masks can give your skin the extra special attention it deserves – whenever you want or need it, in the comfort of your own home.
Use our guide below to learn the benefits of each SK-II mask, how to use it, and which one you should use to achieve your most-wanted skin.
Best for achieving: Hydrated, plump, and translucent skin
What it does: Enriched with a high concentration of Pitera™, this mask is suitable for every skin type that craves an instant boost of hydration. Delivering maximum moisture in just a few minutes, this mask makes your skin look and feel noticeably softer, smoother, more translucent, and dewy.
How to use it: Place the mask around the eye area first, then gently spread it across the rest of the face. Pat gently but firmly to ensure the mask has adhered well to the skin, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.
In your skin care regimen: After cleansing your face, apply Facial Treatment Clear Lotion over your skin using a cotton pad to tone and gently exfoliate the skin before using the Facial Treatment Mask. After removing the mask, simply massage any remaining essence into the skin. Follow the mask with an SK-II serum and moisturizer.
Beauty Tip! For best results, our Global Beauty Counseling Specialist recommends using a sheet mask on a weekly basis.
SKIN SIGNATURE 3-D REDEFINING MASK
Best for achieving: Firm skin and a lifted, contoured look
What it does: This unique two-part sheet mask contains potent ingredients that give a lifting and firming effect on the skin, resulting in a more contoured face and younger-looking skin.
How to use it: Place the upper part of the mask over the eye area first, then gently stretch the sheet sideways to cover areas of fine lines around the eyes. Place the lower part of the mask over the nose and mouth area, then gently stretch the mask upwards from the chin to the sides of the face. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes.
In your skin care regimen: Use the mask after cleansing and toning. After removing the mask, apply a few drops of Facial Treatment Essence to a cotton pad and use it to wipe off any remaining essence, or massage to blend it into the skin. Apply an anti-aging serum and seal in the active ingredients with a firming moisturizer.
Beauty Tip! You can apply leftover essence contained in the mask pack on your neck, décolleté area, and hands.
Best for achieving: Bright, radiant skin with a lit-from-within glow
What it does: Containing the equivalent of 30ml of brightening essence in a single sheet mask, this powerful mask brightens dull skin, helps reduce the appearance of spots, and delivers an instant boost of radiance for a fresh, youthful glow.
How to use it: Place the mask over your entire face. To soothe your eyelids, close your eyes and flip the mask’s eye flaps upwards to cover your lids. For a more intensive treatment on your under-eye area, fold the eye flaps downward. Slightly stretch the mask as needed to adjust to your facial contours, and leave it on for 15 minutes.
In your skin care regimen: Apply the mask after cleansing and toning. After removing the mask, apply Cellumination AuraBright to further enhance your skin’s radiance, followed by moisturizer.
