Don't Let Jet Lag Ruin Your Vacay — Here's How to Combat It Like a Pro

Are you planning a trip across different time zones and worried about jet lag? You're not alone! Jet lag is a common problem that affects almost everyone who travels, regardless of how often they do it. While the jury is out on me being a jet-setter, I'm old enough to have been in the air more than a few times and have been on many sides of jet lag.

But don't worry bestie, we've got you covered. The Hypebae Beauty team has put together a comprehensive guide on how to beat jet lag and feel refreshed during and after your flight. By following these simple steps, you'll be ready to enjoy your much-needed vacay with ease.

Pre-Flight: Watch Your Sleep Cycle

Before your flight, it's important to establish a consistent sleep schedule a few days prior to your trip. This can help your body adjust to changes in time zones more quickly. Consider investing in a pair of blue light-blocking glasses, which can help reduce the impact of electronic device usage on your sleep schedule.

During Flight: Stay Hydrated

During your flight, it's important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or herbal tea and avoiding alcohol and caffeine. You can also try doing some light exercises, such as stretching or walking the plane to improve blood circulation and reduce muscle stiffness.

During Flight: Pack Travel-Friendly Skincare

Airplane air can be incredibly drying, so keeping a face mist or mask on hand can help keep your skin hydrated and refreshed. Consider packing a travel-sized moisturizer and lip balm to keep your skin and lips moisturized throughout your flight.

Once You've Landed: Reset, BFF!

After your flight, we recommend exposing yourself to sunlight during the day and limiting your nap time to no more than 30 minutes to help reset your body's internal clock.
