News flash: I did not wake up like this. My skin has a tendency to run dry and, thanks to my recent travel schedule (due in large part to the fact that Katie and I don’t currently reside in the same country, which has made a case for teleportation as of late), I have developed a case of what I like to call “stress face.” Marked by anything from a reemergence of adolescence in the form of Mount Vesuvius on my chin to early onset crows feet, “stress face” is an epidemic of epic proportions and I don’t care what Beyonce says, my skin is anything but flawless.
At first blush, constantly jetting off to someplace new seemed like a dream. The reality, however, involves jet-lag, airplanes, a lack of water and lots of stress surrounding just being in the airport period. Throw in changes in water hardness, living out of a suitcase and lack of sleep, and my skin could become a case study.
I made the mistake the first few trips of just using whatever I could fit into my ziplock baggie (don’t judge) and drinking as much coffee as I could get the flight attendant to pour me in order to work on the plane. When I found myself starting to believe that the Curious Case of Benjamin Button could have something to do with my newfound fourteen-meets-forty year old skin, I decided it was time to actually pay attention to the state of my face. These days, I make sure I keep water on hand at all times while travelling, continually moisturize my face (on and off the plane) and actually pay attention to what products I am using. This trip I brought with me Elizabeth Arden’s Flawless Future collection, which is both moisturizing and anti-aging (i.e., the perfect cure for “stress face”). Unlike a lot of anti-aging products which put an emphasis on acids, the Flawless Future collection uses Ceramide to combat skin stressers which moisturizes instead of drying out already stressed skin. Not to mention, all three products are in perfectly sized under 3 oz. containers ideal for carrying on. It’s like they knew…
