Have you been searching for an easy way to ward off jet lag? Well, the answer lies in Shay Mitchell's travel skincare routine. The seasoned globe trotter just took to her Instagram stories to reveal her secret weapon to brightening up tired, dull skin after spending hours on the plane — and you'll be happy to know that it won't cost you more than $15.
Mitchell hops on planes regularly, so it should come as no surprise that she knows a thing or two about how to deal with any traveling side-effects — the most common of which is tired-looking skin, resulting from a mix of dry cabin air and lack of sleep. Although it's always wise to have a lineup of smart products on hand in air (read: eye masks, moisturizers, and more of the like), your post-flight regimen is what makes all the difference.
The You actor has made affordable products a mainstay in her day-to-day beauty routine — coconut oil is her go-to for hydrated skin and hair — and her travel regimen is, unsurprisingly, also chock-full of wallet-friendly essentials. Case in point: the $15 sheet mask, from K-beauty brand Rael, that Mitchell swears by to cure jet lag and re-energized her skin post flight.
Mitchell's favorite face mask promises to brighten and revitalizes in just 15 minutes. Pomegranate and mulberry extracts work to protect skin from harsh external factors, while fig extract (which is rich in vitamins and minerals) aids in skin cell regeneration.
What's more, the actor's go-to post-flight essential is perfect for all skin types. It's free of harsh parabens, alcohol, and artificial fragrances that can quickly irritate, especially if your skin is on the sensitive side.
