Our top 5 in-flight grooming tips to keep you fresh on-the-go

After the hurly-burly at the airport, you could be just in a plain exhausted state but upon arriving the destination, you may want to look fresh and presentable, especially when there is someone waiting to pick you up at the other end. Here are some of our essential airplane beauty tips.






Use a sheet mask

Azraei Rahim, Designer

“I usually put on a face mask an hour or two before landing. It prepares my skin with a good layer of hydrating properties, so I look and feel refreshed upon touchdown.”






Target problematic skin areas

Calvin Chong, Digital Director

“Pimples have a nasty habit of cropping up when I’m not in my regular routines. I carry pimples patches so I can pop one on any trouble spots before they ruin my holiday (and photos!).”






Don’t forget the lips

Syazil Abd Rahim, Editorial Assistant

“A lip mask that doubles as a balm can really help keep my lips hydrated and supple. I also always use a lip mask the night after I fly as well.”






Sleeping skincare regime

John Ng, Group Editor

“I always pack a bunch of heating eye masks when I travel. They help me sleep better on a long-distance flight doubling up as an eye mask so I don’t get distracted by the cabin lights.”





Tried and tested

Christina Loh, Senior Sales & Marketing Director

“My skin doesn’t always react well to new products, so I make sure to travel with tried and- tested favourites in a carry-on. This also means I can freshen up on the plane or while I’m on a stopover.”
