Top Grooming Expert Shares Her Favorite Tips to Stay Sharp and Avoid the
'Red Eye' Aftermath
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- For today's travelers, baggage fees, overcrowded planes and delayed flights are becoming the norm. As a result, people are trying to get the most out of their carry-on bag, which can prove to be difficult thanks to TSA liquid restrictions, says Gita Bass, a beauty and grooming expert who has worked with celebrities like Heidi Klum, Ryan Reynolds, Keira Knightly and Taye Diggs.
"You don't need to sacrifice your grooming regimen just because you can't carry all of your every day products on with you," says Bass, a consultant for Rohto eye drops. "There are a lot of great tricks and carry-on permitted alternatives that can keep you looking and feeling your best on the road."
Bass offers her tips to keep you from looking disheveled when you need to look sharp:
-- "Whiten" Up: The same pressurized air that dries out your skin will also zap the moisture from your eyes, causing them to become irritated and bloodshot. A tiny bottle of eye drops will keep you in the clear. "A long flight will have your eyes screaming for relief," Bass says. "Rohto eye drops lubricate and soothe your eyes." Rohto eye drops, http://www.cool4eyes.com, come in a travel-friendly .4-ounce bottle that is allowed on airplanes.
-- Prepare for Flight: "Airplane cabins are probably drier than a desert, and the low humidity can really dry you out," says Bass. "Drink a lot of water before, during and after the flight, avoiding alcoholic or salty beverages and snacks, like tomato juice or peanuts, which can dehydrate the body further, particularly your skin and eyes."
-- Hydrate your Skin: Pack a teeny-tiny bottle of unscented moisturizer to slather on your face post flight, Bass advises. "If you aren't one to lather on the cream, at the very least, moisturizing lip balm can keep your lips from looking dry and chapped," she adds.
-- Hair Repair: Falling asleep in your airplane seat can send your hair off-course, to say the least, but it's hard to bring styling products on board. "I recommend single-use styling sheets," says Bass. "You can run into the bathroom and fix your hair easily without having to douse it with water."
-- Freshen Up Your Scent: The stress of traveling can cause your
deodorant to fail, and eating on the run without brushing your teeth can
lead to bad breath, but you also don't want to cover up with a lot of
cologne or perfume. "You can now get antiperspirant/deodorant in single-use
wipes that can be stored in the smallest spaces, so you can always feel
confident that you're not 'offending,'" says Bass. "I also recommend teeth
wipes that you can fit over your finger -- they clean and freshen the
teeth, gums and mouth, even without water, when you don't have the time --
or the place -- to brush."
