If you are constantly applying your SPF, you know your skin will thank you. Sun exposure is the number one cause of skin aging, as well as being the major culprit behind skin cancer. But, there’s one place you may be exposing yourself without realizing it!
When you travel on a plane and get settled in to that window seat, you’re most likely thinking about the gorgeous view. But, those ultraviolet rays coming through the window are actually intensified between four and ten percent for every 1,000 feet above sea level you travel. Not only does the recycled air of the plane leave your skin dry, but a cross-country flight can also leave you with irreversible sun damage!
Next time you fly, be sure to protect your skin from airplane sun damage with an SPF of at least 30. A scarf is also a great multi-purpose accessory that you can drape over your face while napping or use as a pillow against the window so your cheek & delicate eye skin are not directly exposed.
P.S. Did you know that driving in a car can also pose a sun damage risk?
