Out of office is on – one of the best feelings – and you’re skipping out of work ready to get on that flight. But let’s be honest, flying can sometimes make you feel a little less than fresh, especially if you’re on a long haul flight, as you may experience things like jet leg or dry and puffy skin. We’re not sure about the jet lag, but we’re here for your skin. So we’ve put together our favourite beauty products all under 100ml that’ll help make your flight even better – think of it as a pamper session in the sky…
Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balm
Let’s start with your lips
Any seasoned flight-goer knows that with flying comes dry lips, mainly because of the low huminidty levels, and there’s nothing worse than sitting for a 10+ hour flight constantly licking your lips to give them a millisecond of moisture. So make sure you have a lip balm with you to hand at all times. We love this lip product as it’s made with 12 flowers adding that extra nourishment to help protect your lips.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
Pricey but so worth it
A cult product for a reason, that’s loved by make-up artists and beauty editors alike. It’s perfect for softening your hands and cuticles if you suffer from dry hands during a long-haul flight. You’ll love it so much that it’ll be in your bag at all times, pre and post flight.
Pixi 24k Eye Exilir
The ultimate product for de-puffing
For the perfect pick me up, you’ll want to have this product in your hand luggage immediately. There’s nothing worse than being on a long-haul flight and not feeling your best. So to help, just gently roll this beauty under your eyes and they’ll feel refreshed in no time with any signs of fatigue banished.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask
Help your skin bounce back
A face mask on a plane? How extra! But you’ve got to give your skin what it deserves, and this pick is super hydrating – it’s called ‘recovery mask’ for a reason. So don’t let the air con on the plane dry your skin out, instead use this mask to refresh it whilst listening to your favourite playlist.
Ole Henriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme
Meet your new moisture crush
Seriously, once you use this moisturiser you’ll never look back. The vitamin C helps put the radiance back into your skin and creates a smooth, hydrated canvas ready for concealer or foundation. So if you want to step off the plane looking like you haven’t just stepped off a plane, apply and relax.
