Dry skin takes a flight


Traveling can be a wonderful experience. Learning a new culture, trying different and exciting foods, & spending valuable time with family & friends are all special moments that can give you the momentum to feel good on the inside.

However, the World Health Organization, or WHO, says “The humidity in aircraft cabins is low, usually less than 20% (humidity in the home is normally over 30%). Low humidity may cause skin dryness & discomfort. Use skin moisturizing lotions to moisturize the skin.” The low aircraft humidity, along with new climates and diets, can contribute to dehydrated, dry skin. The last thing you want on vacation is to suffer from less than perfect skin!
