The Ultimate Long-Haul Flight Skincare Routine for Glowing Skin

Have you ever gotten off a long-haul flight and felt like every drop of moisture has been sucked out of your skin? Oh boy, have I been there! As someone who absolutely loves travelling and visiting new places, I absolutely dread the impact that flying has on my skin. The dry cabin air and sitting in one spot for too long really take a toll on my skin. This means that when I land, my skin is dehydrated, dull and flaky. Flying can even cause some pretty nasty breakouts too! On my last holiday, I’d had enough. I wanted to disembark looking and feeling my best glowy self, ready for all the holiday pics. So, I crafted the ultimate long-haul flight skincare routine to ensure my skin stays plump and hydrated even at 30,000 feet. I want to share this skincare routine with you, so you can start your holiday feeling your best and free from skin concerns!

Summer 2023’s Must-Have SPFs for Eczema-Prone and Sensitive Skin

As someone who struggles with eczema, I understand the yearly struggle of finding an SPF that won’t irritate and flare up my skin. Over the years, I’ve tried and tested countless SPFs, some that worked, some that didn’t and some that straight up inflamed my face and struck me down with an itchy rash that ruined my carefully curated summer outfits. The process of finding an SPF that actually works is stressful, so I wanted to share the best daily SPFs for eczema-prone skin that I’ve found.

If you are a fellow eczema sufferer or struggle with sensitive skin during the summer months, this post will help you find the best face SPF for your sensitive skin.

Having eczema means I am always on the hunt to try out the best “superfoods”; all the miracle powders, seeds, supplements and foods that promise to heal your gut and make you glow from the inside out. I’ll admit that “superfood” is a bit of a buzz word and really, what does it mean? Can any of them actually make you healthier and how? Of course, it’s not only about the magical powders you add to your morning smoothie; you need to actually do the rest of the healthy stuff too *snooore*. The latest superfood to hit the health food scene is the bright and beautiful pink pitaya powder. Derived from the pitaya, or the dragon fruit as it is otherwise known, pink pitaya powder is bright and nutrient-rich and is easily incorporated into your daily diet. BUT, before you hot-foot it down to your nearest health food store, let’s find out a bit more about this pretty powder and all the wonderful things it can do for you.

After a year and a bit of lockdown, I’m certain I won’t be the only one who is dreaming of all the trips I will take when restrictions lift and travelling is safe to do again! Hopefully, this summer will be the time when all our travel dreams will manifest but if not, I hope you can find some enjoyment in this post and maybe find some inspiration for your future travels! My dream for post-coronavirus (will this ever happen?) is to go interrailing and explore more of Europe! In preparation for this trip, I’ve created a bucket list of places I would love to visit in my little jaunt around the continent!

All You Need To Know About Teaching English Online Without A Degree

This post is not sponsored but I do currently work on the AmazingTalker platform as an online English Language teacher.

Teaching English can open lots of doors, especially for people who are interested in travelling to different countries and living in new cultures. Currently, there isn’t much opportunity to travel as much as we all would like (thanks covid) but, that doesn’t mean you can’t start your English teaching career now and gain some experience before the world opens back up and you can take your skills to anywhere you desire!

There’s no better way to end a day in Madrid than to watch the sun setting over the beautiful sights. In fact, when I moved to Madrid I promised myself that I would “see more sunsets”. From that very first sighting of the burnt oranges and pinks washing across the sky, it was clear that Madrid’s sunsets are something extra special and I made it my mission to check out all the best sunset spots in the city!
