5 Tips to Look Fresh After a Long Flight


Whether you’re constantly on business trips or love to travel, long flights are a given.

But even though you’re stuck on a plane for five or more hours, you don’t always have to sacrifice glowing skin, sleep, and comfort.

Follow our tried and true tips below to immediately look and feel fresh after a long flight. The best part? You can find these products in the FabFitFun Winter Box, so sign up today!

Exfoliate your skin

We all know that recycled airplane air isn’t the best for anyone’s skin. The not-so-purified air takes away skin’s moisture and clogs pores — yuck! Our best tip to combat the effects of a long flight is to exfoliate with the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. It features natural exfoliants and fruit enzymes, which eat away dead skin cells and polish the epidermis, all while brightening your complexion to take you from dull airplane skin to radiant skin in a matter of two minutes!

Refresh your tired eyes

Long flights can really deplete your body of water content and moisture, which is why it’s important to add it all back once lodged. After exfoliating your skin, we highly recommend using an eye mask like the Grace & Stella Anti-Wrinkle + Energizing Eye Masks to bring life back to sunken eyes. This one is loaded with collagen and minerals to revitalize the delicate and sensitive skin around the eyes. Dark circles are at their worst after a long flight, but they don’t stand a chance against the refreshing gel masks, which will dramatically brighten the under eye area.

Get some rest (even if it’s a power nap)

It’s difficult to sleep comfortably on a long flight or after you’ve settled into your hotel, but with a little extra help from the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, you’ll find yourself relaxed and ready to drift away into sleepy bliss. The chemical-free pillow spray is infused with gorgeous botanicals like lavender, patchouli, and chamomile essential oils to help ease you into a restful state.

Find an effortless statement ensemble

You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort! The BB Dakota Poncho is the perfect travel piece because not only is it so chic and great to layer over any outfit (from leggings to a jumpsuit), it’s incredibly warm and will protect you from the cold. Plus, the poncho is reversible — making it incredibly versatile and easy to style.

Tend to your dry hands

Remember when we said airplane air sucks the moisture from your skin? That goes for your hands, too. Replenish any lost moisture from dry hands with the AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream. It incorporates powerful ingredients like mud from the Dead Sea, aloe vera, and jojoba seed oil to penetrate the skin and bring supple moisture right back to parched hands.

What I received was so nice, but my box was missing the pillow spray and eye mask. What happened?

Hi! All great ideas. He only suggestion I would make is to get some roll-on essential oils instead of the deep sleep pillow spray as many people are allergic to some extracts such as lavender. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOOOOVE this stuff but it could make somebody else very uncomfortable, even on the next flight that plane operates
