Travelling is exciting, but at the same time, it can be really exhausting especially when you're trapped inside an airplane for over six hours. Let's face it: our skin tends to break out after being in plane cabins where there's usually a change in pressure and lack of moisture.

Flying out soon? Before you go, take these top carry-on beauty essentials that will keep your face hydrated and glowing all throughout your flight!

Makeup Wipes

First, you have to remove all that excess makeup and all that gunk on your face to allow your skin to breathe and to properly take in every skincare product that you'll put on. Look for a makeup remover that cleanses, tones and moisturises, if you can.

Eye Cream

If you have dry under-eyes or you just didn't get enough sleep last night because you're a late packer, eye creams will save you! Say bye bye to those irritating puffy eyes as a cooling eye cream like Tony Moly’s Panda Brightening Eye Base will treat those pesky dark circles and relieve it from dryness.


A must-have in everyone's carry-on bag! Moisturisers will keep your skin from getting dry and dull because of the draining flight, letting you maintain a youthful glow.

Sheet Mask

For extra hydration and nourishment, pack some sheet masks. The boost in moisture and skincare benefits will will prevent acne breakouts and blemishes often caused by stress and dryness.



Getting fit and healthy normally means you get a little sweaty too. But, who says you can’t look good even on the move? Ahead, reveals top product picks that will keep you radiant and glowing no matter which sport you’re into.

Whether or not you’ve got your tresses chemically treated, sun exposure as well as the sea water or chlorine in the pool can cause some serious hair damage and breakage. Make sure you give your locks the protection they need with the Aveda Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser and Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil. Your hair isn’t the only thing that needs protection while you swim! To avoid itching and flaking after a dip, replenish your skin with The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Gel.
