MIAMI - Aug. 24, 2015 - PRLog -- Frequent travelers often complain about the conditions that surround commercial aviation today, but there is often one condition that is overlooked- the condition of their own skin. Not only are most commercial airliners full of dry, cold, pressurized air, but typically the only foods and drinks onboard are high-sodium and high-sugar foods. Couple these factors with the sporadic sleep schedule and high stress levels that most of these people typically deal with, and these conditions are almost a perfect storm for bad skin. This is why experienced flight attendants often have a leathery, weathered appearance under their makeup- their skin is no match for the rigors of flight.

According to Priscilla Darlington, a licensed esthitician and natural skincare expert, there is no turning back for flight attendants and other frequent travelers who face these circumstances regularly. "The environment in airline cabins and even some offices today is simply not good for skin. The conditions inside the skin of all its natural moisture, and without moisture replacement, things can get ugly", Darlington said. "Jet lag might be the least of your worries if you travel often; permanent skin damage and premature aging is an even worse fate".

Take heart, frequent flyers and others who live with dry skin; there are some who believe they have the solution. "Our mission is to end what we call 'cabin skin'" says Mychael Roland, the brand manager of la Jet Set Skincare, "and we're doing it one face at a time".  la Jet Set is a brand that was created by flight attendants and skincare professionals, and claims to have the key to preventing unhealthy damaged skin- and promoting healthy, youthful skin in the process.

"Elite-level nourishment is the only way. Even in today's day and age, prevention is not better than the cure, it is the cure." Roland says his company's flagship product, Hydra-Elite Moisturizer, is "possibly the world's strongest natural moisturizer" but is only a fraction of the price of other premium-level moisturizers; perfect for those who "don't have an extra two hundred dollars for skincare products."

This company isn't the only company doing something about "cabin skin". Airline manufacters have done a lot in recent years to promote cabin comfort. For example, Boeing's newest airliner, the 787, features a new cabin pressurization and air circulation system that drastically improves upon cabin conditions typically experienced in years past. There are new versions of the 777 airliner arriving in the near future that will also feature similar technology.

Regardless of what technology or products may be available now, Roland and Darlington both agree that proper skincare and wholesome living habits are necessary to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance. And that, perhaps, is the real secret to beating "cabin skin".
