If you haven’t already spied my sunny snaps over on Instagram, I’m currently lapping up the beautiful sun in Antigua! I thought this would be a great time to round up my beauty essentials for the long flight here..
Like most, my skin gets unbelievably dry on flights. It gets to the point where I have absolutely no shame slapping on a sheet mask in my seat. No shame at all.
I don’t do a full skincare routine really, especially as I tend to skip makeup when I travel, but I do like to freshen up and just make sure my face is feeling super nourished when I fly. I keep a mini packet of Sephora Express Cleansing Wipes on hand to get me started. I’m not usually a face wipe kinda girl, but they are good for freshening up from the comfort of my seat.
I then spritz on a good amount of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, the very best face spray for cooling and calming skin. I sit for about five minutes, slowing coating my skin with the reviving minty water. I find this gives my complexion a good burst of hydration, and it also works well under moisturiser. It’s a must have on long flights, and I always leave with bright, glowy skin.
As I said, I’m not embarrassed to slap on a sheet mask on long flights – they just work miracles on skin in need! I love these NUXE Anti-Dark Spot Perfecting Masks, as they’re not too messy and they make my skin feel so soft, smooth and comfortable after just one use. NUXE are such a great brand, and I just knew I would love these hydration-boosting sheets.
I tend to apply a good bit of moisturiser to finish; right now I can’t get enough of the Yu-Be Skin Cream. This is a super light balm that instantly relieves and nourishes the skin, I use it day and night and it works miracles on a dry, dehydrated or lacklustre complexion. Seriously cannot recommend it enough!
Finally, a touch of Kiehl’s Lip Balm and maybe even a small bit of the wonderful Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm. Both are amazing products that I cannot live without – whether it be on land or in the air!
Do you bother with pampering on long flights?
