5 In Flight Beauty Essentials You Shouldn't Take Off Without
Posted by Stephanie Orr in Skin Care
As a self - proclaimed beauty enthusiast who is infatuated with just about every type of skin care product, I have to confess that I am terrible at limiting my skin care essentials down to a restricted hand luggage amount when it comes to going abroad.
I want to bring everything with me from my sheet mask collection to the spot saving miracles I can’t be without and that’s just for my in flight journey.
Dealing with skin care requirements whilst travelling abroad can be difficult not to mention awkward, restrictive and embarrassing. My finest recurring in flight moment usually goes something along the lines of spraying my face mist in every possible direction to optimise maximum hydration benefits, yet catastrophically it always seems to land all over the unsuspecting strangers shirt and book next to me, either resulting in an unimpressed tut and glare or a conversation starter, once I’ve made an attempt to repair the frosty atmosphere by profusely apologising in true British style.
BIODERMA Sébium H Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution
Whilst carrying around a safeguard pack of cleansing wipes are perfect to lightly refresh the skin or keep the kids clean during a long haul flight, I’m generally not a huge fan of solely relying on them during my in flight beauty regime and instead prefer to apply on a trusty cotton pad soaked with BIODERMA’s Sébium H Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution, £5.10 to hydrate my skin and remove makeup impurities.
Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray
Clinique’s Moisture Surge range is without a doubt one of my greatest beauty discoveries I have ever had the pleasure of coming across, and if there was one product I couldn’t be parted from for my inflight journey and the duration of my holiday it’s the Moisture Surge Face Spray, £22.50. Formulated with Bio Activated Aloe Water and Glycerine this face mist helps to restore essential moisture levels in the skin, leaving an instantly hydrating and immediately cooling impact - Inflight essential ALERT!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Powerfoil Mask
You can’t call yourself an inflight beauty devotee until you have worn a sheet mask on a plane and received multiple glances from every fellow passenger in sight. Try Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Powerfoil Mask, £16.50 which has been designed to lock in moisture and infuse the skin with a double dose of the timeless Advanced Night Repair Serum for a fresher, dewier appearance.
Whilst you may feel strange applying a sheet mask mid air just remember this is one of the top keys to an in flight beauty regime and the answer to healthier happier post - flight skin.
Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate
With the eye area being more susceptible to dryness, puffiness and dehydration during a long haul flight, it’s important to protect your peepers and apply an eye cream. I like Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate, £55 which helps to restore hydration, target dark circles and give eyes a luminous lift.
Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
Keep your skin in tip top condition with Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, £34 deeply hydrating and sumptuously soothing this will help to soften your skin and provide a protective moisture barrier until you land.
