Emirates stewardess Elizabeth Gallagher (photo) has revealed how she keeps her skin on board impeccably every time
In August, Emirates stewardess Elizabeth Gallagher revealed how she sees her skin flawless on board every time.
& # 39; I believe it is important to take moisturizing products on board every flight. I want to make sure that I perform a facial treatment with cleansing, toner, serum and hydrating products, & # 39; 30-year-old Daily Mail Australia said.
& # 39; This gives my skin a good dose of vitamin D and self-care prior to long-distance adventures.
& # 39; While on board, I usually make sure I have facial tissues with me to remove makeup when needed and follow this with the use of my favorite face cream to minimize dehydration on my skin during fly.
& # 39; It is also a good idea to wrap a lip balm to prevent dehydration during the flight. For travelers traveling in business and first class, the amenities package for travelers includes a variety of beauty products that are sure to freshen up your skin during the flight. & # 39;
Mrs. Gallagher – who worked for the airline for eight years – said she noticed changes in her skin when she started flying.
& # 39; I noticed that my skin became sensitive to the air in the cabin, especially on long flights. To reduce sensitivity and combat these effects, I always try to increase my water intake and have an extremely moisturizing moisturizer with me when I top up my makeup, & she said.
In her hand luggage, she said she always packs her multi-vitamins, essential beauty products, iPad, toothbrush, a change of comfortable clothing, and an iPhone.
Elizabeth Gallagher & # 39; s day on a plate
BREAKFAST: I always start my day with a teaspoon of Manuka honey, followed by a bowl of muesli and Greek yogurt with a piece of fruit and of course no breakfast is complete without coffee
LUNCH: I love a salad with lots of vegetables and a delicious bowl of pasta. & # 39; In the evening depending on my location. When I'm home, I try to keep my meal simple with a piece of protein and steamed vegetables. Otherwise I love the local cuisine and taste the flavors that the world has to offer
FLIGHT MEALS: We all get meals on board that are prepared by our world-class catering facilities. The meals we receive are inspired by the destination we are traveling to. For example, if we go to Dubai, a Middle Eastern dish would be served as an option, so if we travel to Australia, the menu would contain a variety of Australian products to enjoy
