Summer travel is the best, but getting there isn't always as fun. If you're going to be on an airplane for at least five hours, make it worth your while and get some beauty goodness in between single servings of pretzels. As I prepare for my own 15-hour flight (yup, 15), I've rounded up six products that I'll be packing with me”and don't worry, these are all flight-friendly travel-sized option to keep your bag light and your butt out of a security search. Oh, but don't forget to toss your toothbrush and a bathing suit in your carry-on”I won't make that mistake again.
The last time I was on a long-haul flight I was 19 and hadn’t yet figured out the benefits of bringing skincare products onto a plane, but now that I’ve almost a decade older and much wiser, I see the light. I’m not suggesting you put on something like this (though that is a personal fave), but a super-portable sheet mask or gel-like sleep mask works perfect. Since your skin can get really dehydrated when you’re on a plane and you don’t want to arrive at your destination looking close to death, something that has loads of moisture and maybe some brightening properties will do the trick. Our pick: Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask ($40). You can pop a little bit into a travel-sized skincare pot and apply before you chase your sleeping aid with some calming tea and wake up feeling and looking refreshed.
