Ask any frequent flier; international travel is not good for your skin.
From the recycled air in the cabin to the low humidity (the average woman loses about 1.6 litres of water on a ten-hour flight) getting to your destination can leave your face looking like you truly need a holiday.
The answer? A little in-flight pampering session.
Popping some smart rehydrating products into your carry-on luggage is a genius way to beat breakouts and arrive feeling (and looking) rested.
Neutrogena’s new Instant Boost Facial Cream and Clay Mask Pods contain one dose of either an intensive leave-on or rinse off formula tailored to the needs of different skin types.
The neat portable pods are the perfect travel buddy and at just €4 each, they’re the ideal travel treat, even if you’re just popping to London for the weekend.
We love Hydro Boost – The Super Hydrator, which is infused with hyaluronic acid to plump and nurture dry skin.
Just take off your make-up after take-off, slather on a pot of the thick gel, and relax for 20 minutes while it works its magic.
You can wipe off the excess with tissue before landing or just rub it in for a lasting glow.
The formulas are also available in a Recovery Sheet Mask (also €4) if you don’t mind getting some funny looks from other passengers.
Needs must, right?
