A sheet mask

A sheet mask is an in-flight essential for many a model and celebrity due and is an effective way of combatting the dehydration caused by recycled plane air. Pack a mask such as Vichy's Mineral 89 Instant Recovery Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask in your carry-on to provide instant comfort to the skin in just 10 minutes. This single-use tissue mask is infused with 89% Vichy Volcanic Water and Hyaluronic Acid and it also helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function while leaving your complexion looking radiant.

 

A hydrating serum

One simple way of ensuring your skin stays hydrated throughout a flight is by applying a serum enriched with hyaluronic acid. This superstar ingredient holds 1000 times its own weight in water so locks in moisture like nothing else. Vichy’s Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Booster helps to hydrate and plump the skin and comes in a fresh gel-like texture so you won’t be left with any greasiness or residue. Try applying it after your sheet mask to lock in hydration.

 

An eye cream

If you’re travelling on a night flight or going long haul, you’ll probably arrive at your destination looking and feeling pretty tired. Help to brighten the appearance of dark circles and bags with an intensive eye cream such as Vichy’s Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Eyes Fortifier. Its 15ml size is small enough to be packed alongside your passport and it will hydrate and plump the eye area for up to 24 hours while helping to protect the skin’s barrier function.

 

A mineral water spray

A mineral water spray is one of the best ways of refreshing and cooling your skin during a flight. Vichy’s Volcanic Thermal Water Spray comes in a flight-friendly mini size and is infused with antioxidants and 15 rare minerals that help to fortify and protect the skin from environmental aggressors – including recycled aeroplane air. Spritz it over makeup, over a sheet mask or after cleansing for instant comfort.
