5 Tips for Healthy Skin while Flying

Long haul flights can be tedious (especially if you’re flying economy), but can also present an opportunity to leave your phone aside for a while and catch up on some reading, movies and podcasts with zero interruptions (hope free WIFI on planes doesn’t become a thing anytime soon!)
