A Luxe Way to Fill Your Time & Protect Your Skin on a Flight

Your flight home for Thanksgiving might have unintended consequences: dry and irritated skin. Here is the skincare routine I use (as much as I can) to look dewy and renewed when I land. This beats any inflight entertainment your airline is going to provide you.

Makeup Remover

Trust me, just use it.


This is not only the most luxurious part of this process, but also the most important and detoxifying.


Don't skip this step.


This will feed your skin with all the nutrients it lost during your flight.

Hand Lotion

Your skin dries out in the air, so use lotion to fix it.


Drink lots of water, preferably something alkaline to hydrate your body and prevent inflammation.

If you implement these tips the next time you fly, your skin will thank you.
