Dr Rita Rakus launches The Mile High Facial Kit with 5 Squirrels

By 5 Squirrels Ltd / 11 Apr 2022

Long-haul flights can be tough on the skin. Air humidity in an aircraft is much lower than on the ground, which can leave the skin feeling dry and tight. Dr Rita Rakus, in partnership with 5 Squirrels, has developed the world’s first in-flight skin therapy to solve the problem of ‘plane face’ once and for all. The Mile High Facial Kit features four products from The Dr Rita Collection in a handy travel-sized format so they can be taken onboard safely.

“We’re all excited to be getting back in the air – but let’s not forget how bad air travel can be for the skin,” says Dr Rita Rakus. “The combination of cabin pressure, recycled air, and a lack of fresh oxygen can play havoc with your complexion. Working with 5 Squirrels, I’ve developed The Mile High Facial Kit to combat this problem that we’ve all faced so many times.”

The Mile-High Facial Kit includes four products to keep the skin happy and healthy on even the longest flights.

• Reveal: Containing a combination of Glycolic and Citric Acid to gently remove dead skin cells, together with Salicylic Acid to remove impurities and excess oil, this is the perfect way to start your mile-high facial.
• C10: This serum offers superior antioxidant protection from the oxidative stress of flying, and it is easily and quickly absorbed by the skin.
• Quench: Plane cabins have very low humidity, so this ultra-low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid complex is the perfect way to keep the skin hydrated.
• Refine: Get rid of your tired ‘plane eyes’ with this intensive eye serum which will visibly improve clarity and tone.

In addition to the Mile High Facial Kit, Dr Rakus is also launching Baggage Handlers: Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Under Eye Patches. The patches are infused with Hyaluronic Acid to deeply nourish and hydrate the under-eye area. “Puffy eyes are always a dead giveaway when you’ve been on a long flight,” explains Dr Rakus. “The Baggage Handlers will de-puff and perk up the eye area and should be applied following the Mile High Facial.”

“If you pack anything in your hand luggage on your next holiday, make sure it’s the Mile High Facial Kit,” says Dr Rakus. “It’s the best way to ensure you arrive fresh and baggage-free!”
