Every Beauty Product That Helped Me Survive 80+ Hours of Travel
Good news: I just went to Bali!
Bad news: I just went to Bali, and it took about 40+ hours each way to arrive at my Four Seasons destination.
Really long flights in tight seats, really long immigration lines, really long car rides, and I survived basically because of these beauty and skincare products that kept me looking and feeling like a human being.
Nannette De Gaspe Restorative Techstile Masque ($120) is especially great for travel because it can be used up to three different times, as it’s a dry mask. But don’t be deceived by the word dry—it’s highly hydrating and anti-aging.
Mizon Intensive Skin Barrier Eye Gel Mask ($5) is also brilliant for hydrating just around the eyes. I try to do both a sheet and eye mask for a long flight, it really makes a difference in the quality of your skin the days after you deplane.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir ($18) is a must mid-flight for as many hydrating and refreshing spritzes as needed. (I’ll sometimes average about 20+ spritzes during a flight.)
8G ($28 for two tubes) for that “glowing from the inside out” look and feel.
Refresh Tears Eye Drops ($12) just in case dry eyes sneak up on you. Nothing is worse than being unprepared for dry eyes.
Swell Water Bottle ($35) is great at Goldilocks’ing, it’s big enough to fill up enough water for an entire flight but not so big that it’s a burden to carry around. (Most airports now have handy water bottle refilling stations, too, or a water fountain gets the job done too.)
