Anyone who know me, knows that I love to travel! This past year I’ve been to Las Vegas, Phoenix, New York City (Travel Vlog), and planning on going to Florida in September. We didn’t do a lot of out of state traveling when I was little, so now I’m ready to see the world!

But, you know what can sometimes make traveling difficult (besides money)? Looking my best and keeping my skin in check! Traveling with makeup (especially my expansive collection) can be tough. With all the hustle and bustle, I wonder why I wear it all! Plus, you never know how a different environment is going to make your skin react.

So, while in New York, I got some great tips from Tiffany Oddo, a New York Makeup Artist. Tiffany is a licensed esthetician and artist who does some amazing work in the great city of NYC. Everything from editorial, runway, bridal, special effects, and back has been done by her. So, who better to ask about keeping my makeup cute and my skin fresh when I’m going from Cleveland to the airport to the plane to another airport to my destination?

Traveling by Plane

The elevation from the plane can dehydrate your skin. It can also cause discomfort, open and large pores. Not to mention, that it can cause cakey-looking makeup! I’m sure you don’t want to reach your vacation paradise with caked on makeup and giant pores (but the photos)! So, here are some products that can help keep your makeup and skin in check while flying.

City Pollution

If you’re traveling to a big city like New York, your skin has to combat with some new elements in the air like smog. Most cities have smog, but some more than others. Even Cleveland recently got an air quality alert!

An important part of taking care of your skin is getting the proper vitamins. Vitamin C can protect your skin from the free radical damage from pollution. It can also keep your skin from becoming oversensitive in the city environment and smog.
