WITH the right prod­ucts, you can turn a long-haul trip into a pam­per­ing ses­sion and ar­rive at your desti­na­tion feel­ing and look­ing re­freshed and re­laxed.

With pres­surised cab­ins and re­cy­cled air, fly­ing is no­to­ri­ously bad for our skin. Low hu­mid­ity on board is a par­tic­u­lar is­sue, as this lack of mois­ture can make dry skin even dryer, while oilier skin types may over­com­pen­sate by pro­duc­ing ex­cess se­bum, lead­ing in turn to blocked pores and break­outs. Once you fac­tor in the de­hy­drat­ing ef­fects of that in-flight gin and tonic, you could be left with dull, sen­si­tive skin that feels far from va­ca­tion-ready.

For­tu­nately, with a lit­tle prepa­ra­tion and a clev­erly-packed carry-on, these air-travel es­sen­tials can help you to look great when you land.
