Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner – will you be escaping for a little getaway? If you have plans to travel by plane, it’s important to be prepared to take good care of your skin while you are in flight. Recirculated air and low humidity inside the cabinet can dry out your skin, stimulating it to produce more oil. Today, we will be sharing an in-flight beauty regimen with boscia essentials to help you get your complexion glowing in time for landing! Beauty Tip -> Due to TSA regulations, don’t forget to decant your skincare products in travel-size containers while packing!
Give your skin a quick, deep, mess-free cleanse with our Black Charcoal Cleansing Cloths and forget the hassle of washing your face with water and cleanser in the tiny aircraft bathroom. These cloths are infused with a pore treatment blend that not only deep cleanses the skin, but also helps minimize pores for a smooth-looking complexion!
Provide your skin with its first layer of hydration after cleansing with our Balancing Facial Tonic. This spray tonic does not require cotton pads; just one spritz soothes, restores, and refreshes your skin with its gentle lavender water-infused formula.
Due to the low humidity on planes, a toner and a moisturizer may not be enough to keep your skin well-hydrated throughout the flight. Hydration masks can provide your skin with an immediate, powerful boost of hydration! After toning, apply our Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydration Hydrogel Mask. This mask contains Tsubaki (Camellia) Oil that not only deeply hydrates skin, but also provides anti-aging benefits and protects against free-radical damage. If you are concerned about your neighbors staring at your mask, try our Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask! This mask disappears into skin after you massage it onto your face. Your skin will feel smooth and baby-soft once you reach your destination!
Beauty Tip -> Avoid bringing clay masks or deep-cleaning masks on your flight, since skin is more sensitive under the dry cabinet conditions of the plane.
Next, smooth on moisturizer to seal-in the products you have applied and provide long-term moisture for your skin. It is essential to use a moisturizer that provides UV ray protection since you are closer to the sun when flying at high altitudes. Our Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 contains eight antioxidants from ingredients like rice bran oil and wine extract that not only provide UV ray protection, but also defend skin against environmental stressors and promote elasticity while moisturizing the skin!
Beauty Tip -> Instead of carrying a hand cream or a body lotion, apply your moisturizer onto your hands, elbows, and any other body parts that are dry to keep your luggage light!
Don’t forget your eyes! Your eyes may get puffy and look very tired after sleeping (or not sleeping) during your flight. Our Super-Eye De-Puffing Eye Balm is a non-liquid formula that is light, mess-free, and easy to carry on board. It instantly de-puffs and revives your tired eyes with its cooling and soothing effect!
Lastly, apply our B.B. Cream Light Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ right before landing for glowing, flawless skin! This B.B. cream is a one-step wonder, eliminating your need to carry both foundation and concealer. It adjusts uneven skin tone, provides natural coverage, and conceals imperfections, all while hydrating and soothing your skin!

Did you know that our body begins to lose collagen – an important protein that provides firmness to skin – as we get older?

Today, we are introducing to you the newest addition to our innovative hydrogel mask collection: Wakame Firming Hydrogel Mask!

Whether it happens during our teen or adult years, acne can be very frustrating. Common causes include genetics, inadequate sleep, poor diet, and lack of regular exercise. However, there are measures you can take to treat and prevent future breakouts. Follow our eight beauty tips below help you achieve your clearest complexion yet!
1. Wash your face properly, and don’t over cleanse!
People with acne-prone skin often believe that they need to wash their faces numerous times in order to remove excess dirt and oil. However, doing so can damage the skin’s natural barrier that protects it against UV rays, pollution, and even acne-causing bacteria. Over-cleansing can also lead to an imbalance in water and oil, causing our skin to overcompensate its lack of hydration by producing more oil. Washing your face two times a day is ideal; to properly cleanse, massage your cleanser with fingertips in small circular motions, starting from the outer edges of your face and moving in towards your nose. This ensures that we are not pressing too hard on our skin and causing irritation and that we don’t miss a spot on our face!
2.Wipe down your cell phone screen every day!
Remember to sanitize your cell phone screen at least once a day! You may not realize it, but your phone accumulates bacteria from your hands, desk, bag, and other public areas. When you touch your face with cell phone screen, these bacteria can infect our skin and cause acne.
3.Wash your pillowcases, bed sheet, and comforter once a week!
Dust, bacteria, and oil from your hair and face accumulate on your pillowcases, bed sheet, and comforter daily, transferring onto your skin when you sleep and possibly leading to breakouts. Therefore, wash your pillowcases, bed sheet, and comforter once a week!
4.Don’t exfoliate when you have acne!
Exfoliating can damage the skin’s natural barrier that helps heal acne; in addition, it can also spread acne-causing bacteria from one spot to other places on your face.
5.Have a simple skincare routine and choose products that target acne!
It is important that you keep your skin care routine as simple as possible when you are experiencing acne. Layering too many products on your face can prevent your skin from breathing and further clog pores, which can worsen breakouts. Choose skin care products that specifically target acne or consistent breakouts: our unique Clear Complexion Collection contains Willow Bark Extract, which is a natural Salicylic Acid, derived from Willow Tree, that neutralizes acne-causing bacteria and impurities without over-drying or irritating the skin. It also helps to minimize dark spots from previous breakouts. Start your skin care routine with our Clear Complexion Cleanser, follow with our Clear Complexion Tonic and Clear Complexion Treatment, and then finish with our Clear Complexion Moisturizer!
6.Make sure you rinse off your shampoo and conditioner properly!
Make sure you are rinsing off your hair products properly! Residue from shampoo and hair conditioner can also clog pores around your hair line and lead to breakouts.
7.Keep your hands and hair away from affected areas!
Remember to always avoid touching your face with hands and hair, especially around the forehead! The bacteria on our hands and oil produced by scalp can make acne worst.
8.Use ice cubes to soothe redness and swelling!
Wrap an ice cube in a small towel and place it on the affected area where you see redness or swelling. The cold temperature of the ice can lessen the irritation.

Do you feel that your skin is not absorbing all of the toners, essences, serums, and moisturizers you apply on your face? Our Sake Treatment Water may be your solution! Sake Treatment Water is an innovative, unique skin care product from boscia – it acts as a “primer” for other skin care products, allowing the skin to effectively absorb and maximize their treatment benefits. In addition, it also provides long-term hydration, brightens your complexion, and is lightweight enough to be used by all skin types!
Sake Treatment Water differs from an essence; an essence is a skin care product that contains one extremely amplified ingredient that targets a specific concern, such as hydration. It is especially beneficial for dry and dull skin types. Apply Sake Treatment Water before your essence to allow your skin to optimally reap its benefits!
- Rich in Thioredoxin, an ingredient known to improve skin barrier function, water content, and firmness. Thioredoxin also reduces wrinkles, brightens, and protects the skin against aging, dullness, hyperpigmentation, loss of water and elasticity, and numerous bio-stressors, including oxidation
- Contains numerous vitamins and minerals, providing powerful hydration and brightening benefits
- Improves skin’s elasticity, enhances its barrier function, and erases discoloration
- Revives skin’s healthy complexion and texture to prepare skin for greater absorption of additional products
- Hydrates as it penetrates into the skin
- Supports skin’s ability to attract and retain moisture
To use our Sake Treatment Water, pump the product once or twice onto your palm after cleansing, but before toning. Then, gently press and massage onto face to activate the formula. Follow this step with toner, serum, moisturizer, or additional treatment products. Sake Treatment Water can be used every morning and night.

Remember when your mom told you to wash your makeup off before going to bed, but you didn’t listen and woke up with a breakout on your face the next day? When it comes to beauty advice, it turns out mom is always right! To celebrate Mother’s Day, the boscia team shares (and gives!) our favorite skin care advice from our moms.
“Whether I was wearing makeup or not, my mom always expressed to me the importance of washing my face before going to bed. It’s gross to think about all the dirt that is left on the skin at the end of the day, so I always make sure I go to bed with a freshly cleansed face!” – Molly, Associate, Sales & Planning
“Stay fit. Use sunscreen. Drink water. Don’t eat sugar.” – Alisha, Coordinator, Marketing
“My mom taught me to always take the extra time at night to cleanse and moisturize my face before I sleep! The skin needs time to breathe and recharge after a day with makeup!” – Christine, Brand Manager, China & Overseas Projects
“I always tell my daughter to put on sunscreen and wash her face carefully to keep healthier looking skin, since she is in the pool all through the year.” – Mika, Customer Service Representative
“My mom always has the best advice, and that includes skincare! She is always advising people to wear sunscreen and, as always, she is right – that is the most important part of a skincare ritual. Thanks to her, I wear SPF every day, and hopefully I won’t pre-maturely age!” – Sarah, Account Executive, Sales & Education
“My mom always tells me to extend skincare products onto my neck, even face masks! Wrinkles and fine lines show up sooner on our neck than on other areas.” – Ann, Coordinator, Marketing
“My mom always tells me to remember to do my skincare regimen morning and night, no matter what!” – Alyssa, Intern, Marketing
“Since I was a teenager, my mom has always told me to wash my face every night before going to bed, and never sleep with my makeup on.” – Ashley, Coordinator, Marketing
“Growing up in 120° weather, my mom always told me to wear sunscreen and a hat!” – Jamie, Assistant Manager, Marketing
“My mom and I both love all things beauty. We enjoy shopping for new products and sharing our favorite finds. While we have so much fun doing so, my mom has always stressed the importance of maintaining a skincare routine. Your skin is your canvas, and it is crucial that you take care of it. Regularly cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing preps it for makeup and keeps you looking better long term. Consistently following these steps makes all those fun, new beauty goodies work even better. As a bonus, splash your face with cold water after cleansing. It’s refreshing and helps tighten your pores!” – Michelle, Director, Product Development & Regulatory
“[My mom says,] ‘I would tell you not to overdo the makeup and always clean your face. Take care of your skin when you are young, and make sure you use sunscreen.’” – Wendi, Graphic Designer
“[My mom says,] ‘After your cleansing and moisturizing ritual, always remember to rub excess moisturizer onto your hands. People can tell your age by your hands!’” – Mali, Manager, Sales & Planning
What skin care tips did your mom pass down to you? We hope you and all of the special mothers in your life have a wonderful time celebrating this Sunday!
