FOREO returns to the skies & completes in-flight skincare routine

By Laura Shirk

Described as offering a "powerhouse profile", Captain Angelica is not only a female captain in a male-dominated industry, but also a yoga teacher and certified Pilates instructor; following nine months of restrictions, she been re-united with her crew and resumed her duties as Captain

Due to their efficient size, power-packed charges and long list of benefits, FOREO products have long been cited as indispensable to travelers. Word of mouth has been critical to the success of FOREO in the travel retail channel, which is how Captain Angelica discovered her love of the Luna Mini 2.

After graduating flying school and completing aviation training, Captain Angelica started her career as a pilot in 2005. After almost a decade of working as a co-pilot, the go-getter reached her current rank of Captain.

While making a mark on the male-dominated industry, Captain Angelica is also keeping her health and lifestyle in check. As a yoga teacher and certified Pilates instructor, she considers fitness and wellness to be a priority. Also, a top concern: her skincare routine. Recommended by her cabin crew in 2019, Captain Angelica deems FOREO’s Luna Mini 2 an essential. Drawn to its positive reviews, she immediately purchased the product at a duty free shop upon landing in Seoul. Since then, the two have been inseparable – and she has purchased two more units of the line.

“This is one of the greatest accolades in retail for a brand like FOREO to receive, simply because when a consumer purchases your product from an airport it makes you smile. However, seeing an entire crew of an Airbus 330 each purchasing and holding a Luna Mini 2 is overwhelming,” comments Gary Leong, Global Travel Retail Director, FOREO.

Recognizing the most important steps of her skincare routine as focusing on hydration and using sunscreen, Captain Angelic says being exposed to the harsh conditions of the airplane environment such as air re-circulation and sun exposure can be detrimental to one’s skin.

Paired with any FOREO UFO Power Activated Mask, many travelers use the brand’s UFO 2 90-second making device to maintain a glow in-flight. The innovative device uses cryotherapy and thermo-therapy to help the skin better absorb mask ingredients and comes with eight different LED lights for added benefits. After landing, Captain Angelica notes that cleansing is the most important step. App-operated, the LUNA 3 cleansing massager ensures a deep cleanse to remove any impurities, oils or bacteria and unclog pores.

Following nine months of restrictions, Captain Angelica has finally been re-united with her first love of flying and resumed her duties as Captain. With restrictions slowly lifting and borders re-opening, FOREO is encouraging passengers to make sure their travel skincare kit is complete. Operating on a global level across five regions, FOREO Travel Retail has expanded to 230 locations in 26 countries
