How To Save Your Skin While Traveling

This blog post is sponsored by Olay

Traveling (particularly long-haul flying) really takes a toll on my skin and can cause breakouts and dry patches no matter what I do. Seeing as I’ve been traveling so much this Summer (Mexico for work, England for a month, Malibu for Labor Day, New York for Fashion Week) I knew I’d need something with me to keep my face happy. I’ve traveled around the world and tried a lot of products but Olay Red Jar moisturizers are the best by far. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time and their trusty moisturizers have been in my bag for every trip this Summer. Read my top tips for keeping your skin soft during your travels and how you can save tired skin on-the-go.

Invest in a good moisturizer

I’ve found a skincare routine that’s really working for my skin and once you’ve found yours, it makes such a difference to how your skin reacts to traveling and tiredness. I’ve been using two of Olay’s Red Jar products for almost a year and have really noticed that my post-traveling skin is happier than it has ever been before. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is thick (without being greasy) and so really helps to build up moisture in my skin. On a long flight I will put this on as much as I can so that my skin always has a good barrier. The Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer (which Mackenzie keeps stealing) has SPF 25 in it but also sits really well under makeup as a primer or even over the top when I need a bit of extra sun protection. It’s so light and goes on matte so it really feels like having a mini facial – which I love!

Drink water

And I mean LOTS of water. Your body dehydrates at an alarming rate when you’re flying so it’s more important than ever to keep drinking water. You will really notice how much fresher you look coming off a plane if you’ve kept your hydration levels topped up.


It may sound obvious and isn’t always easy but sleeping as much as possible on a long haul flight will not only help you adjust to a big time difference (London is 8 hours ahead of LA which is huge) but your skin will reap the rewards of a well-earned rest. Of course, any fellow parents will agree that toddlers and planes aren’t always a great combination if you’re needing some shut eye. Honor has had some good flights and some not-so-good ones so Mackenzie pack ear plugs and eye masks and take it in turns to nap so we’re not like zombies when we arrive.

  • I so enjoyed my visit to the @ilgufo_official London boutique the other day and Honor LOVES the clothes I picked up for her (just look at that smile!) Beautifully designed Italian pieces that are perfect for busy toddlers #ilgufoFW19 #ad
  • Back in England, out and about in London Town...
  • The love boat ♥️
Thank you Vegas for the best weekend ever!
  • Of course we were front of the queue when the @VenetianVegas pool opened this AM! #ad #VenetianVegas #VenetianCelebrates
  • We made it to Vegas baby!! Time for Mum & Dad to have some fun 💫 @venetianvegas #venetianvegas #ad #venetiancelebrates
  • Greengrocer tip! Ever wish your fruit and veggies wouldn’t wither as soon as you got them home?! Enter this clever little fruit and vegetable wash which gives them a new lease of life. All natural, no chemicals and no food waste! Link in bio 🥦🌶🍐🍅 #liketkit
  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
