9 skin and beauty products that will be your saviours after a long flight
Because the moisture-sapping air conditioner is your worst enemy
Sure, travelling to that exotic villa in the Maldives you booked on Airbnb is amazing. But the process of getting there? Not so much. Nothing makes you feel grimier than lugging your suitcases through the check-in counter, waiting in long lines for immigration and getting to security, only to have your full-size products snatched away from you. Then, there’s the cabin pressure, re-cycled air and lack of oxygen inside the plane that saps away all the moisture from your skin, leaving it dull and dehydrated.
Don’t empty your luxurious eye cream into a dull, plastic container. Sneak these in-flight beauty essentials into your hand luggage; all sized to help you breeze through security and then hit the tarmac looking as fresh as Deepika Padukone.
