It’s officially holiday season and if you’re lucky enough to be heading to a faraway destination this summer it’s time to consider your in-flight essentials. While headphones, socks and your favourite glossy magazines are great investments, the real essential will protect you from dry skin before you’ve even arrived at your dream destination…
Dry cabin air can wreak havoc with your skin, skin is comfortable when humidity is between 40 – 70 percent but with most airplane cabins it sits at around 20 percent humidity* which can result in one thing: EXTREMELY DRY SKIN.
Enter, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel the new specialist dry skin formulation. The gel-to-oil texture absorbs easily and creates a protective film to resist moisture loss. While traditional dry skin products such as creams, lotions and body butters are made primarily from water. Most of this water simply evaporates when coming into contact with your skin. It’s often what causes the cold sensation that you feel when applying these products. Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is made from oil, so feels “warm” on application. In a user trial conducted on 102 dry skin sufferers, 82% saw a difference in just two days. 2 96% of trial participants agreed that “a little goes a long way” replenishing the skin’s barrier to deeply moisturise the skin.
