No matter how exciting my destination is, I always tend to dread the actual flight. Being stuffed up against strangers, breathing in drying recycled air, and begging for an extra pack of pretzels isn't exactly the Kardashian-esque private charters I've dreamed of, but my mini skincare routine makes up for all that. At least a little bit.
This routine is mini enough that I can pack everything I use into a small makeup bag and throw it in my carry on bag. The portability of this spa package makes it perfect for anyone who, like me, would rather travel light than wait forever for your checked bag to come around the carousel after landing.
So, if you'd rather invite a little zen into your ten hour red eye, read on below for my totally TSA approved, packable picks.
You've probably realized by now that getting your skin happy whilst enduring endless in-flight hours to somewhere (hopefully) wonderful involves a whole lot of moisturizing. The same goes for your insides too. That means drinking water throughout the entire flight is important, and not just one of those tiny cups with too much ice that the flight attendants pass by with. Pro tip: Bring an empty water bottle with you to the airport, I love Bkr, and fill it up as soon as you get through security at a water fountain. Sip that 'til you're on the plane, then ask for a refill when you board.
And voila! You've got radiant just-had-a-facial skin right off the plane. It's almost like you didn't even have to share an armrest in coach.
