Get your holiday off to a flying start
Do you normally emerge from your holiday flights frazzled rather than refreshed? Air pressure, fluctuating temperatures and humidity all take their toll and leave us feeling rumpled rather than ready for the holiday of a lifetime. We look at dry eyes, a common problem felt by flyers, and recommend a great health and beauty essential to combat them.
The problem: Dry eyes
Dry cabins and fluctuating on-board temperatures can lead to dry eyes mid-flight, which can cause painful itching and inflammation. Try switching off the air vent immediately above your seat and drink plenty of water. You could also try dry eye drops which naturally hydrate the eyes and keep them moisturised. Contact lens wearers on the go should keep to their usual routine when mid-flight and abroad to keep their eyes healthy and comfortable.
