Jetset Essentials: My Beauty Tips For Looking Fresh When Flying

Being 36,000 feet in the air is so stressful for the skin, especially with the recycled air and germs everywhere–yuck! I always feel so swollen and icky.

So, I always have a few products with me so I feel refreshed, brighter and make sure my skin is completely nourished. If the frenchies are flying with me, sometimes I bring their own balm for cracked or peeling noses. 🙂

Ever since I was little I always called it “jetset skin”–glowing, dewy, almost-shiny skin with no makeup. That has always been my #skingoals–love love love that look. I’m about to fly to Europe in a couple days and these are my go-to products I usually bring with me on the plane.

OIL. I’ve always been an advocate for facial oils and just drenching my skin. Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil is my usual go-to but I also love all-natural and go for 100% rose hip oil, orange blossom oil, argan oil, etc.

One of my new favorite finds is Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Eye Mask. It’s these jelly eye-shaped masks that instantly lift and hydrate your undereye area. It’s an amazing pick-me-up after sleep that de-puffs and makes your eye area 100x better!

I’ve always had really bad motion sickness so I always use Aesop Ginger Flight Therapy. It’s a roll-on oil that helps with nausea. It’s comforting and smells really relaxing. Also, to relax on a flight, I love a good essential oil lavender spray to spritz sporadically. Yep, I’m that person who’ll spritz spritz spritz. (If you have bad motion sickness, ginger pills really help!)

Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter is literally like butter. And it gives the most beautiful pop of pink color. The lips look super drenched and brightened.

A rich eye cream is a must.  Apply more than you normally would and throw a face mask on and let all that goodness seep in. This Sisley Eye Cream is extra emollient. Other favorites: Tatcha Revitalizing Eye Cream and Kiehl’s Avocado. I haven’t tried the e.l.f Illuminating Eye Cream but it has great reviews and is only $10!

When we’re close to landing, I’ll use a face wipe or Murad Resurfacing Peel (vitamin C pads—love this stuff!) or glycolic pads to clean + refresh my skin.

If I want a dab of coverage when I get off the plane, RMS concealer is so so good for the skin. It’s made of all natural ingredients and is a bit creamier than most but because of that, it melts into the skin and looks invisible. It’s almost like a firm moisturizer with a touch of color.

Now, for the pup…

Pura Naturals Pet Button Nose Butter is only made of a few ingredients (like shea butter, olive oil, etc) and instantly soothes and moisturizes their little noses when they get cracked and dry.

I love re-applying the oils every couple hours to fully plump the skin of nutrients, drink lots of water and try to sleep. These tricks always make me feel pampered (like a mini facial) and comfortable during the sometimes-stressful event of flying!
