Today, I thought I would share my in-flight skincare essentials. I travel fairly frequently, and mostly on 5+ hour flights, which are awful on my dehydrated skin. Over the years, I’ve figured out what things I can do in-flight, to help alleviate some of the stress caused by the flight. These products all do double duty, and are part of my travel skincare routine as well (you can read that post here).
As soon as the seatbelt sign goes off, I head to the bathroom to take care of my skin. I start by using the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes to take off anything that’s on my skin, so it’s relatively clean before I do anything else. I then apply the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask all over my face, including under my eyes. This is a deluxe sample, that I got and treat it like gold. It’s super expensive to buy, but is absolutely amazing and so hydrating to my skin when I fly. When I don’t have a sample of this mask, I use whatever moisture mask I have on hand. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask is another great, and much more affordable option.
Back at my seat, I’ll use the Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel (cause we all know how many germs a plane has). I’ll then use the First Aid Ultra Repair Cream as a hand cream, if the flight is super long, at some point this ends up on my face as well.
I always end up applying a ton of lip balm during the flight, and love using The Body Shop Aloe Lip Care. It’s great at keeping my lips hydrated, and I don’t have to dip my fingers into a pot.
Depending on the length of the flight, I may apply another layer of the mask, but most of my flights are around the 5 hour mark and once is plenty. I find that when I do this in-flight, my skin is much happier and don’t end up with super dehydrated skin once I get off the plane.
Do you have an tips for in-flight skincare essentials?
