Retinol, also known as Vitamin A, is compound found in green and yellow vegetables, egg yolk, and fish-liver oil. If you’ve not used it or are not versed in the power that is retinol, fear not! We’ll fill you in so you can get started.
#1. DERMATOLOGISTS SWEAR BY IT
Retinol makes old skin cells behave like healthy younger cells. It also boosts collagen and elastin production, and reduces wrinkles, age spots and open pores!
#2. GO SLOW
Because it’s such a powerful ingredient, you should start by applying it every other day, before gradually applying it daily or twice daily. This allows your skin to adapt to it gradually.
#3. SHUN THE SUN
Retinol loses its stability under direct sunlight, so load up on SPF, wear a chic sunhat and avoid baking in the sun for too long after application.
#4. EXPECT SHORT-TERM SKIN REACTIONS
Don’t discontinue use if you experience a breakout. This powerful ingredient might push hidden acne to the surface and even cause skin to appear flushed. These are short-term inconveniences for vast long-term anti-ageing benefits, so hang in there!
#5. LOVE YOUR BLINKERS
You can even apply it to the delicate eye area. Just be sure to choose a gentle formula, like the Jet Cell Renewal.
It’s easy to effortlessly look good while travelling. Travel smart and gracefully with these flight-friendly tips!
STOCK UP ON MULTI-TASKERS
Pack as many beauty products which can multitask, such as a lip tint that could double-up as a cheek stain. Cream colour bases won’t spill or break, and the nude shade is great for brightening up the eyes, and highlighting cheeks. Avoid lipsticks, which can dry lips, and are a hassle to reapply. Stick to glosses and lip balms to keep those smackers moisturised.
TAME THE TRESSES
To cope with icky, greasy hair during your travel, pack dry shampoo, which not only cleans and deodorises hair, but also helps boost volume for limp hair. You can use baby powder too, but you’d have to give hair a good comb-through to remove the hasty white residue. Alternatively, keep hair up with chic barrettes and pins, so don’t forget to pack those.
You probably know how to dress comfortably for a flight, but you don’t want to look sloppy when you get off the plane. Avoid fabrics which get wrinkly easily, such as linen or polyester silks.
The dry cabin air can take a toll on skin, so make sure you rehydrate. Drink plenty of fluids, and replenish physcial moisture on skin by spritzing on facial mist. For instantly soft and hydrated skin, use the Jet Calming Antioxidant Mist, a peptide- and antioxidant-rich product to refresh, soothe and protect skin under all conditions. Best part? It’s flight-friendly at 30ml!
KEEP GREASINESS AT BAY
Pack blotting papers and dab the T-Zone as often as necessary. The dry cabin air tends to dehydrate skin, kicking it into overdrive mode to rehydrate. Blotting papers dab up the excess oil without stripping skin of essential moisture, leaving you fresh-faced.
A packed social calendar is fabulous for the holiday season but not so good for the skin. Parties and entertaining can stress it out, leaving it looking tired, sallow and puffy.
Give after-party skin that extra SOS attention with these 3 tips!
1. Get Rid of Toxins
The most crucial step after partying is to remove toxins, which accumulate in your body when the liver is loaded up heavily with alcohol and rich foods. These toxins will be expelled through your skin, giving you a tired, pallid complexion, a puffy face, and breakouts.
The solution? The Jet Facial – an ultra-cooling treatment which exfoliates, tones and brightens by blasting skin-saving, detoxifying oxygen and saline at supersonic speed onto the face. This painless facial also promotes lymphatic drainage, which will eliminate that puffy, after-party look.
Pimples are a main post-party woe for many. Stick to a back-to-basics skincare routine and gentle antiseptic products that will help clear skin without stressing it out – like our Jet Clear range!
3. Regenerate Skin
After giving skin a good detox, a jolt into regeneration will help bring back that pre-party glow!
The Jet Cell Restore treatment helps rejuvenate, repair and restore skin using state-of-the-art LED lamps. This treatment powers the skin cells, stimulates collagen production and creates a healthy skin matrix.
The Cell Restore offers 3 different LED lights to target different cellular functions – red light to fuel cells, blue light to kill bacteria, thus reducing acne, and infrared light to heal wounds and reduce inflammation.
The best part about this treatment? Skin continues to be rejuvenated, even days after the treatment!
Get gorgeous and ready to party!

Want an even skin tone? The Jet White range, designed for fairer, brighter skin, holds the keys to success. The White Hydrator uses the latest ‘Quick Break’ technology to release Arbutin and Vitamin C, known powerful whitening ingredients, to lighten skin. To fight skin pigmentation, try the Jet Spot White, which will ultimately give you a more even complexion.
2. Battle Dullness
Dead skin cells can make your complexion look dull and sallow. Exfoliate at least once a week to reveal fresh skin with the Jet Purple Peel. It’s a powerful yet gentle peel containing extracts of the purple orchid to slough off dead skin cells, hydrate skin, shield skin from ultraviolet radiation and pollution, and stimulate cellular renewal.
3. Plumped to Perfection
Get youthful, supple skin with the Jet PureHyal, our ultra-luxe facial treatment which uses the signature Jet M machine to infuse pure hyaluronic acid into skin.
