Fourth of July weekend in front of us means it’s officially high summer and most people are gearing up for their vacations.
For many, that will include air travel, and possibly a long haul flight.
You know the drill: they give you some pretzels, the drink cart makes a couple of rounds, they bring you your sad little tray of airplane food and then before you know it, it’s wheels down.
Your flight attendant hands you a moist towlette and you hope it’ll revive your dried skin and make you look a little less haggard but it does neither, and you chastise yourself for not downing more little cups of water.
But, drinking water on a plane is a double-edged sword. If you don’t, your entire epidermis dries up; if you do, your lower body retains the liquid.

Dr. Christopher Calapai DO, an anti-aging and stem cell expert and long-time health advisor to the New York Rangers hockey team, tells us how to fight post-flight dehydration with foods.
