Beauty Swellness: Flight-friendly beauty tips from the Emirates cabin crew

#RedHatSelfie with Christiana and Alexandra of the  Emirates cabin crew

Even though I travel a fair bit, I haven’t completely got a beauty routine for flying down pat; I find I still step off the plane looking bleary (even if it’s a short flight). I now try to stick to drinking water to combat dehydration; I typically wear a moisturizing sheer lip colour (less maintenance required), and if I’m flying out very early in the morning or it’s a flight longer than three hours, I’ll wear my glasses and put on my contact lenses before I land to prevent my lenses from drying out my eyes.

Several weeks ago, though, I had the chance to learn about the beauty regimen of the Emirates cabin crew. (And I got to snap a #RedHatSelfie with the lovely Emirates cabin crew members Christiana and Alexandra). The crew has to look polished and professional and the look must be consistent for the crew, and stay on for some 16 hours or more some days. Some of their top tips that we can all apply to our travel beauty routine:

  • Adjust your makeup depending on the flight (consider the time of day your flying, the flight duration).
  • Wear non-waterproof mascara for when you’re traveling; the dry air on flights can already zap you of hydration and waterproof mascara are drier than regular mascara.
  • Skip the bronzer when you fly. Bronzers (with the unforgiving lighting on a flight) can draw your face down and make you look tired.
  • Keep a small Evian atomizer to spritz your face with during the flight for some instant hydration for your skin.
  • Try an eye gel (which you can easily tap on over your makeup) to give your face a quick pick-me up.

Clarins supports active young ladies


Clarins has just partnered up with Fast and Female, a non-profit organization whose goal is to keep young women in sports (considering girls are six times more likely to drop out of sports than boys). They do this by hosting programs led by Olympic athletes and other role models.

Seem like a strange pairing, Clarins and sporty young women? Not so when you consider that Fast and Female’s promotes young women feeling beautiful inside and out.

And what’s more is that in March 2011, Clarins is launching a new line, Daily Energizer, geared to women 16 to 25 years old. The range is affordable (the Cleansing Gel and Wake-Up Booster each cost a very part-time-job-paycheck-friendly $15), which I’m sure will attract many a beauty junkie beyond her 25 years…after all, we can all use the extra change in our pocket while also benefiting from refining and tightening properties of the redcurrant in the Wake-Up Booster.

And (getting back to the good cause at hand) from its’ March launch until September 2011, $1 from every Daily Energizer product sold will be donated to Fast and Female.

The Clarins Daily Energizer range will be available in March 2011 in The Bay, Sears and Shoppers Drug Mart (and if you can’t wait til March, snap it up in February when it’ll be carried exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart).
