Hydration boosters

‘The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF15, $ 6, is my handbag must-have to keep my lips hydrated on-board and I make sure I drink lots of water throughout the flight. Sarah Chapman Instant Miracle Mask, $ 59 for four, gives instant radiance after a long flight – it contains vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to leave skin feeling firmer, plumper and hydrated.’

Glow givers

‘I drink plenty of water to help counteract the dry cabin air. A little bronzing powder is the perfect antidote if your skin looks grey post-flight – I dust on Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder, $ 40, then warm a skin balm (try Trilogy Everything balm, $ 19.3) in my hands and gently pat it on my cheeks to create a dewy glow.’

Eye treats

‘My career entails lots of flying; jetlag, long hours and early starts – all of which take their toll on my eyes and skin. To combat dryness, I always take my make-up off as soon as I board, using Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser, $ 6.94 – it’s brilliant as it gives your skin a deep cleanse without drying it out. I love Optrex ActiMist 2 in 1 Tired + Uncomfortable Eye Spray, $ 23.16 – it’s instantly refreshing and moisturizes, too, so I always walk off the plane feeling revitalized.’

De-stress essentials

‘My line of work means I travel all the time, and there are a few rules I stick to religiously to ensure I arrive at my destination feeling almost human. I always travel with a neck pillow, such as Design Go Bean Neck Pillow, $ 18.52, and, if I’m on a long-haul flight, I’ll put a few drops of Aveda Lavender Fleurs Oil, $ 26.26, on it to help me relax.’

Sleep inducers

‘A little bottle of sweet almond oil (try Neal’s Yard Almond Oil, $ 13.59) keeps my skin fully hydrated throughout the flight. Then, when I get to my destination, I have a nice hot shower using Neom Tranquallity Organic Bath Oil, $ 49.43. It’s full of English lavender and guarantees the best night’s sleep ever, so I feel rested and ready for any meetings the next morning.’

Skin coolers

‘The secret to looking great after a long-haul flight is to keep your skin hydrated and cool during the journey. I regularly spritz my face with Evian Facial Spray Atomiser, $ 5.39. Then, an hour before landing. I’ll put on an Olay Total Effects Mask, $ 26.24, or rest cotton pads soaked in ice-cold water over my face and eyes. Both reduce puffiness and provide a clean and refreshed make-up base.’

Sole mates

‘I pop a pair Brora Cashmere Socks, $ 44.80, over a layer of Clarins Foot Beauty Treatment Cream, $ 32.44, (the Hand & Foot Beauty Treatment Kit, $ 29.35, contains a smaller size). The arnica extract reduces any swelling, plus it’s really moisturizing. In fact, my feet look more sandal-worthy when I arrive than when I get on the plane!’
