7 In-Flight Beauty Essentials You Need Every Time You Fly

Whether you’re heading out on a quick weekend getaway or venturing overseas, there’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination with tired, dry and tight skin. The cabin pressure and massive reduction in humidity levels can suck the life out of your skin, which can cause dehydration and dullness, which is the last thing you want to deal with when you land. Here’s our short list of what in-flight beauty essentials to make flying in economy feel like first class.

Face Wipes
Whether you board your flight with a full face of makeup or you fly bare faced, face wipes are great for freshening up mid-flight. We love Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes because they soothe your skin while taking away the day’s dirt and grime. 29Secrets Pick: Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes Mini, $15

Overnight Mask
If you drench your tired skin in hydration during your flight, you’ll arrive at your destination with an enviable spa-like glow. Our in-flight go-to is Origins Drink Up Overnight Mask — just smooth a thick layer on clean skin and leave it on to work its magic. 29Secrets Pick: Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, $34

Hydrating Sheet Mask
If you’re low on space or you’re unsure if your moisturizer meets in-flight requirements, a single-serving hydrating sheet mask is great for on the plane. While pulling off a quick mask is no small task, it’s definitely worth it if you’re up for the challenge. And if your seat mate gives you a weird look, they’re probably just jealous they didn’t think of this first. 29Secrets Pick: SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, $22

Facial Mist
For those who are all about hydrating their skin on the go, Herbivore’s Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist is the Holy Grail for dull, thirsty skin, whenever and wherever you need it. 29Secrets Pick: Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist, $21

Multi-Purpose Balm
When you’re packing your carry on, you only have limited space, which is why multi-purpose products are great for space saving. We love Glossier’s Balm Dotcom in Cherry because it will keep your lips hydrated and the subtle hint of colour will make you look alive and fresh. Not to mention you can dab a small amount onto your cheek bones for an instant dewy glow. 29secrets Pick: Glossier Balm Dotcom in Cherry, $15

Dry Shampoo Wipes
Considering how much space aerosol cans take up, these IGK dry shampoo wipes are a serious in-flight game changer. Stash a few of the packets in your carry-on and you can eliminate frizz and smooth flyaways at 40,000 feet. 29Secrets Pick: IGK Swipe Up No-Frizz Smoothing Wipes, $22

Firming Eye Gels
When you’re about an hour away from landing, throw on a pair of these firming eye masks as they help hydrate, bring circulation and de-puff the under-eye area in as little as 10 minutes. 29Secrets Pick: Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, $18
