Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise some more I cannot emphasise how much moisture you need for long haul flights must. Remember you are exposed to heavy air-conditioning for sometimes up to 13 hours on a flight that alone can put a lot of strain on your skin, carry a travel size face moisturiser in your hand luggage and every 2 hours put it on. This is easier you avoid wearing make- up whilst flying. Some of the best moisturisers to carry during a long haul flight are serums and sheet masks.

This is important always carry a deep cleansing face wash or wipes that you can use whilst on the flight trust me you won’t look like a “dork” there are a lot of people that do this you still want to get to your destination looking like a million bucks for all those instagram photos.
- 3. Face mask
Don’t be shy to have one on during the flight, a lot of pharmacy have the deep moisturising face mask that you can whoop on without the admin of mixing ingredients and need a lot of water to wash of any excess products.
- 4. Non-clogging make up
Try avoid the heavy coverage makeup whilst travelling that you can do when you arrive at your destination opt for non-clogging oil free coverage.
