There’s nothing that can make you look haggard, exhausted and awful quite like a flight, particularly a long-haul trip. When you step off a plane if you’re like most of us, you probably look anything but fresh. So what happens if you have somewhere important to be after your flight lands, and you don’t have a lot of time to make yourself look alive again?
Maybe you have an important meeting as soon as you leave the airport or a social engagement.
Whatever it is, the following are some quick tricks to look better after you land so you can hit the ground running with whatever your plans might be.
Choose Your Food and Drinks Carefully
One of the biggest culprits of your less-than-ideal appearance after you get off a long flight are often the food and drinks you chose while in the air. Alcohol and unhealthy, salt-filled airplane food can make you look puffy and bloated. Try to make your choices carefully so that you can avoid those disasters, which are hard to overcome.
Water or green tea are good beverage choices, and try to choose your in-flight meal wisely. Generally, fresher foods are going to be better than the ones that are packed and processed, of course.
