Let’s be honest, anyone who has ever flown on a long flight knows that it can wreck your skin. Airplanes are notoriously cold, dry and full of recycled air – yuck. We know that a lot of you are planning on escaping the UAE summer, so we thought we’d give you a list of our favorite in-flight must-haves, to help make your journey easier and make sure you arrive at your destination looking like you’ve just left a spa. Each of these products comes in 100ml or less, so you don’t have to worry about pesky airport liquid rules getting in the way of your pampering.
We all know how hard it is to get any decent sleep on a plane and when you combine that with salty airplane food and low cabin pressure, it can result in puffy eyes. A quick dab of Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Gel will instantly decrease any puffiness as well as hydrate and firm the delicate skin around your eyes.
This Eve Lom Hand Cream sure does pack a punch! It contains super moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil, beeswax and shea butter to will hydrate and brighten your skin. We recommend using this on your hands and any other parts of your body that feel dry on the plane. It also has SPF 10 so you can still use it to protect your hands when you reach your destination.
No one likes having chapped lips, so keep your pucker protected with Murad Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protector. Packed full of great ingredients like shea butter, safflower oil and sweet almond oil, this lip balm will soften, smooth and moisturize your lips. It tastes great, too!
Serums are a great way to go when flying because they hydrate and protect your skin without clogging your pores or feeling too heavy. Cellucur Skin Refining Fluid contains aloe vera, minerals and sea salt to moisturize and calm your skin, ensuring you leave the plane looking even better than when you stepped on.
Don’t forget about your hair. The dry cabin air and airplane pillows can leave your hair feeling dry, rough and full of static. This leave-in hair cream will seal your cuticles and keep your strands protected, shiny and frizz free.
