Jetsetter Irene Kim is well versed in the importance of a consistent, steady skincare routine to revitalise her skin after putting it through the ringer of jet lag, recycled plane air and constant exposure to different water. Travelling to and from Asia and beyond can wreak havoc on skin, but Kim shares her tips for keeping hers smooth, moisturised and blemish-free in the video below. It’s all about a skin detox to reset and refresh, which involves a good eye mask and an edited suite of skincare saviours, of course. Here, our Global Beauty Contributor’s tried-and-true 4-step process for taking care of her dry, sensitive skin while she’s traversing the globe.
When Kim feels her skin is looking tired, she treats it to some Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion. She’s even created a bespoke panacea to keep fatigue at bay. “I've decanted some Micro Essence into a small spray bottle and use it as a mist on the plane,” she says.
She applies Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment to treat spots and minimise irritation.
While that’s soaking in, she dons her Stress Relief Eye Mask. The slim packettes are compact enough to fit in even the tiniest carry-on.
Finally, Kim layers on DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme SPF 15 to hydrate and help protect her skin from the elements.
