Use this proven trick to re­duce air­plane headaches.

Changes in cabin pres­sure when you’re on a flight can lead to si­nus in­flam­ma­tion, trig­ger­ing sud­den, in­tense pain around your eye — an air­plane headache, says Parisa Gaz­erani, as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor from Aal­borg Univer­sity in Den­mark who stud­ies the phe­nom­e­non. Had one be­fore? To avoid a re­peat, take an NSAID 30 to 60 min­utes be­fore fly­ing, and pop a mint dur­ing take­off and land­ing. If you still get zapped, pace the aisle to rev cir­cu­la­tion, which may dull the ache faster.
