10 Skin-Saving Products to Turn Your Flight Into a Spa in the Sky

Over the years, I’ve come to enjoy the routine of flying. I go to the same restaurant in JFK (an Italian spot) and order a glass of wine with pasta, catch up on my latest Netflix show (currently, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and amble over to the gate just in time to board the plane (I’m in no rush to get on first). The one thing I’ve always hated about flying, though, is that no matter what I do—shower before heading to the airport, wear my comfiest athleisure—I always feel icky the second I land.

I don’t know if it’s the cabin pressure or germy tray tables that are to blame, but stepping on the plane without some extra backup leaves my skin feeling sluggish and in some instances, smelly. So I decided to adopt a new routine: a lineup of products to keep my skin bright and fresh no matter how many hours I’m stuck in the air.
