Talking Travel Skin With Celebrity Facialist, Sue Dann


As we’re giving away a Dr. Spiller’s First Class Travel Kit in one of our latest travel competitions, we thought we’d have a chat with celebrity facialist, Sue Dann, to get her advice on how to keep your skin looking in tip top condition on the road. For a start, simply pack Dr. Spiller’s First Class Travel Kit, which contains all the essentials for glowing skin in handy carry-on sizes. “Air travel is torture for skin if you’re poorly prepared,” says Sue. “For starters, the dry cabin air is typically less than half the humidity we are used to at ground level, so skin moisture levels are going to dip drastically.” Rehydrating the skin is also essential. “If you’re not actively rehydrating skin you’ll either get off the plane looking crêpey, or your complexion will try to compensate for the moisture loss by producing extra oil, which can lead to breakout,” Sue warns. 

A sensible travel regimen involves taking off with clean skin, then layering on skincare once you’re in the air. Start with a soothing serum to put moisture deep into the skin, then smooth on nourishing face and eye moisturisers regularly to prevent moisture loss. Dr. Spiller’s First Class Travel Kit contains all the essentials for glowing skin in handy carry-on sizes. They include the best-selling Aloe Vera Sensitive Cleansing Milk to gently clean skin, Sensitive Toner with Aloe to restore the skin’s optimum pH level, and an Aloe Vera Eye Repair Ampoule to boost hydration levels and reduce signs of fatigue around eyes. To complete this essential kit are Sanvita Gel to soothe and calm skin exposed to external stress, and Sanvita Cream to protect moisture levels and boost antixodant levels. 

Sue has some additional key advice for keeping your skin looking great on the go. “ Apply a moisturising mask the night before you travel, so your skin is already well hydrated,” she says. “Also, take off with makeup-free, clean skin, and regularly reapply moisturiser throughout the flight.” Sue isn’t a fan of facial mists if you’re flying - for a good reason. “It might feel refreshing but, as the water evaporates from your skin, you end up exacerbating dryness,” she says. Other tips include drinking plenty of water, and avoiding the free coffee and alcohol; your body is losing water in the dry cabin air, so H2O is vital for the health of your skin cells. “And finally, as soon as you’ve checked in to your hotel, cleanse skin thoroughly to remove pollutants from your flight and moisturise well,” says Sue.
