Skincare Essentials for that overnight flight 

I fly an insane amount, which takes a harsh toll on my skin. Travel stress during long-distance flights and the prolonged exposure to dry cabin air tend to dehydrate it.

Trying on new products for my skin type is always fun and I ask for samples every time! They’re small, easy-to-pack and make for handy travel companions.

I always make sure to take extra care of my skin while travelling and I wanted to share my in-flight essentials with all of you:

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E GENTLE FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES

Just picked this up the other day to try, and it has become an instant favourite; it removes make up easily and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. The wipes are infused with moisture filled wheat germ oil which helps condition my skin.

Face Oil

Dr JACKSON’S EVERYDAY OIL

Space NK, thank you for this wonderful gift!

This all-natural moisturising oil has all the treatment I need at night…no more face masks! It ensures I wake up every day with healthy, glowing skin. The secret is a mix of my favourite Marula oil and baobab oil which helps hydrate and soften my skin.

Face Mist

INNISFREE ALOE REVITAL SKIN MIST

This was yet another complimentary gift which has come in super handy. I really love the bottle; it’s the perfect size for travel! Apply this any number of times during the flight for that extra boost of hydration before or after your moisturiser.

Eye Cream

NATURA BISSE DIAMOND EXTREME EYE CREAM

What a wonder sample from Natura Bisse! I use it before landing and again at night. Just a tiny amount takes care of the sensitive area under my eyes, leaving no signs of fatigue or puffiness.

Day Cream

IN TRANSIT SKIN DEFENCE

This protective moisturiser is an absolutely vital in-flight companion that packs the top three skincare essentials – SPF 30, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid – in one compact tube.

An application of this lightweight, thirty minutes before landing gives my skin a soft, supple texture and I’m ready to go! Be careful to remove any night oil with a face wipe before applying this.

 Lip Balm

LANOLIPS LIP BALM -LIP SHEEN 3-in-1

I recently discovered this one and I’m in love with it. This balm adds sheen while intensely conditioning and repairing the fragile skin on my lips. Infused with all-natural ingredients, it is the perfect cure for dry and dehydrated lips. I use it at night and before landing.

Wherever you go, try these on. Trust me, they’d be one of your most reliable travel partners!
