Whether you are sitting upright in Economy or lying flat in First, the dry air is all the same! Take the stress out of packing your mid-flight beauty bag with these 8 essentials to keep you hydrated and looking fresh.

It’s that time of year when many of us are planning European summer breaks. It is a long and uncomfortable flight but that is no reason to let yourself go! It is important to stay hydrated and maintain that ‘glow’ during and post flight, plus you never know who you might be sitting next to.

In addition to these 8 essentials, we also recommend drinking a ridiculous amount of water and stay away from the drink trolley!


In Transit Spray on Moisture This Works

This spray is a little bit of heaven in a bottle. Designed to spritz on your face mid-flight, we have found ourselves spraying this mist all day long. Carry this on you at all times no matter where you may be for an on-the-spot freshen up. $36 Mecca Cosmetica

The Multiple NARS

We love a multi-purpose product and this iconic stick will take you far. Perfect for eyes, cheeks, lips and body, this product will not only make you look alive before you disembark the plane, but it’s one simple stick you can pack instead of 5 extra bulky items for the duration of your trip. We like Orgasm as it is a peachy pink that works with most complexions. $52, Mecca Cosmetica
