LOOK LIVELY WHEN YOU LAND

LOOK LIVELY WHEN YOU LAND

Too much sport on TV? Fancy getting away from the crowds? Far-flung wedding to get to? You’ll be getting on an aeroplane. We know the world and her sister are keen to let you know how bad flying is for your skin, but some clichés are true. How can you counteract it? “Basically,” says Stylist’s beauty director Joanna McGarry “just embalm yourself in oils and creams and you won’t look dead on arrival.”

BE SEMI-PRECIOUS

Stylist’s beauty assistant Anita Bhagwandas uses a jade facial roller, which she finds soothing and puffreducing. Anita chooses this one by Ying Yu, which has a large roller for your face and a smaller one for the eye area. Ying Yu jade facial roller, £43, Cult Beauty

SLEEP AND BE CALM

Want to sleep or calm yourself? Joanna recommends the This Works Deep Sleep range. “The pillow spray is amazing and travel sized,” she says. “It contains lavender, which naturally soothes you into a sleep (and helps prevent plane anxiety!)” This Works Deep Sleep pillow spray, £15

ICELANDIC AIR WAYS

“Skyn Iceland have amazing gel undereye de-puffing masks which only take a few minutes,” says Joanna. These are perfect for the half-an-hour before you land or for when you first drop your bags down in your hotel room. Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, £25, Marks & Spencer

RE-PACKAGE THIS ONE

“Lancôme’s Hydra Intense face mask decanted into a little pot makes an amazing night flight treatment,” says Anita. “It rehydrates your skin like nothing else I’ve ever used.” (Note: the 100ml tube fits regulations, but there’s only so much room in those plastic bags.) Lancôme Hydra Intense, £32

HAPPY OIL OVER

“Oils are more easily absorbed than creams and need fewer applications, so The Sanctuary lipid oil is great and small enough to travel with too,” says Joanna. Smooth a layer on to a makeup-free face and settle back for the film playing in the head rest. Sanctuary lipid recovery facial oil, £22
