Travel Beauty :: In-Flight Essentials

in-flight beauty essentialsWhen I get on a flight, I have a full on beauty routine that begins as soon as I sit down. I think of those travel hours as valuable beauty time, and a chance to try new products. Here are some of my tried and tested favorites that allow you to walk off a plane feeling and looking totally pampered!

Bliss Softening Socks The gel lining in these socks contains hydrating ingredients like Olive Oil and Vitamin E, allowing your feet to soak in moisture. For an extra treat, slather on foot lotion before the socks. Get it: Sephora or

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream Nothing, I repeat, nothing makes hands softer than this hand cream! I worked at L'Occitane during college and fell in love with this product---there is absolutely no better hand cream on the market. I reapply it throughout my flight to keep hands hydrated. This hand cream comes in a travel-friendly size (30ml). Get it: L'Occitane stores

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment I love this product because not only does it keep your lips ultra moisturized but it gives them the most beautiful flush of natural color. I like walking off a plane looking refreshed and this product definitely helps. Get it: Sephora or

Alterna Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue This treatment is applied to dry hair and left on overnight (or "over-flight") to repair dry damaged hair. I like to apply it from root to tips, put hair into a ponytail, and wash it out that night or the following morning once I reach my destination. The result is very shiny, extremely soft, smooth hair, and it comes in a travel-friendly size. Get it: Sephora and salons worldwide

Evian Mineral Water Spray + Creme de la Mer My in-flight skincare routine includes a spritz of Evian Mineral Water Spray, which I let dry, followed by a thick layer of Creme de la Mer. This combo protects your skin from dry plane air and lets you walk off a flight looking radiant. Go to your local beauty counter and ask for a Creme de la Mer sample to test it out---it's a big investment so make sure it's right for your skin type. Get it: Sephora or, Neiman Marcus or Holt Renfrew
