Flying is a great opportunity to up your novel reading game, catch up on Netflix, or binge on current blockbusters. There are so many benefits to a 2-12 hour flight but skin hydration is most definitely not one. Parched skin is the saddest symptom of the jet set life, but thankfully there are a few steps you can take to stay hyyydrated. 💦
A sheet mask for your entire face may feel like too much for a flight, especially if you are sitting next to a stranger. An eye mask is an easy way to ease them, or yourself, into the in-flight mask game! For budget days, Kiko’s Energising Eye Patches are a great option. These hydrogel masks with coffee extract, have an immediate cooling effect and literally wake your face up. If you’re feeling boujie upgrade to P Diddy’s favourite: Chanel Le Lift.
Adding moisture to skin with a face mist is a fragrant and refreshing pick-me-up when you’re feeling dry or parched. Glossier’s Soothing Face Mist is 95ml so perfect for hand luggage; it also contains Aloe Vera and rosewater to replenish the skin and is a super fine mist, ensuring maximum impact.
Not all lip balms are created equal. That’s why for a flight you should try upgrading your daily fave, for one without silicones or petroleum, to save for constantly having to top up. The fresh sugar lip treatment advanced therapy is perfect for keeping your lips hydrated.
If you want something cute, compact and equally awesome, check out the Laneige lip sleeping mask, which lasts forever!
If you want one awesome product to give your skin a boost of nourishment and radiance, then a face oil is the quickest way to get there.
Oils come in cute glass bottles with droppers, which unfortunately are not handy mid flight. In these high-flying instances we love the Milk Makeup Hydrating oil, a solid, gorgeous and useful hydrating oil.
