Expert Advice

Braving the overcrowded airport for some much needed festive QT? Wouldn’t you like to arrive at Grandma’s house fresh-faced and glowy? If you answered yes to any of the preceding q’s, you won’t want to miss these four in-flight skincare tips.


We love seeing family for the holidays, but air travel can take a serious toll on the skin! Airplane cabin air is extremely dry and sucks the hydrating water content right out of your skin. Studies show that most cabin air is at about 20% humidity, 10% lower than a Las Vegas summer. Not to worry loves, there are a few easy travel hacks to keep you looking fresh as a first winter snow.

Travel with a reusable water bottle

Having your own reusable water bottle is essential to getting enough liquid to support your skin’s hydration level. We suggest filling (and refilling) a 12oz or larger bottle and drinking half of your body weight in ounces over the course of the travel day.

Don’t wear makeup on the plane

Covering your skin with a layer of makeup during a drying flight can clog pores with environmental toxins and bacteria contributing to irritation and breakouts.

 Avoid plane food

Not that you were looking forward to it anyway, but plane food is chock-full of sodium that can cause unwanted puffiness and swelling. Pack healthy low sodium snacks like cut veggies, unsalted nuts, and fresh fruit to support your skin.

Community Close-up: The Kyles of Kyle House Fitness

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
