    First-class skin

    “I apply a thin layer of Aromatherapy Associates Anti-Aging Overnight Repair Mask [$88; Amazon.com] before long flights. It contains nourishing oils that protect skin from cabin air, plus fatty acids for a plumping effect. You’ll actually arrive at your destination looking better than you did before takeoff!”  – Alexis Wolfer, beauty blogger and founder of The Beauty Bean

    Eye essentials

    “To prevent jet bags — aka dark circles and puffiness, post-flight — I apply soothing undereye patches before takeoff. Your fellow travelers may look at you funny at first, but your bright eyes will be envied come arrival. I swear by Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels [$30 for 8 pairs; Amazon.com].”  – Francesca Fusco, MD, a dermatologist in New York City

    No-fuss hair

    “My signature hairstyle in the sky is a topknot. Loosely twist strands into a high bun and secure with a creaseless fabric elastic — the higher the bun, the more voluminous hair will be when released. Unwind upon arrival, spritz with dry shampoo and tousle for soft, pretty waves.”  – Jeanie Syfu, a celebrity hairstylist in in New York City

    Lip service

    “Chapped lips make for an unsightly greeting, so I layer on a thick balm to act as a shield against the drying effects of flying. My favorite is Rosebud Perfume Co.’s Rosebud Salve [$6; Sephora.com], which can also be dabbed on parched cheeks and cuticles.”  – Lara Ramos, beauty blogger at The Glossarie

    Beauty spritzer

    “I always stash a travel-size bottle of Evian Mineral Water Spray [$14 for two; Sephora.com] in my carry-on. It’s a great multi-tasker! I spray my face when it feels tight from the dry air and lightly mist my hair, giving it a little scrunch, to revive moisture and bounce.”  – Jet Rhys, a celebrity hairstylist in Los Angeles

    Ready to glow

    “Flying sucks the life out of my skin, so I apply Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Primer ($48; Nordstrom.com) for subtle tint and luminosity before landing. Then I tap a smidge of concealer wherever I need a little extra coverage. I swirl a creamy blush onto the apples of cheeks and a little on my forehead, too, for a healthy-looking flush.”  – Suzy Gerstein, a New York City celebrity makeup artist
