In flight beauty essentials

Long haul flights are a mixed bag - there's the joy of being able to watch 8+ hours of TV guilt-free and as many snacks as you can handle, balanced out with the fact you're essentially travelling for an entire day that could be spent at your destination. It also plays ABSOLUTE HAVOC with your skin thanks to the lovely recycled air which is drier than the Sahara. 

I'm heading off to New York in a few days (EEEEP!) so wanted to share a few of my plane essentials that will be keeping me company all the way to JFK. Foundation isn't one of them - I try to apply mine just before touchdown so I can keep slapping the moisturiser on at hourly intervals throughout the flight. The fact that it's a 4.30am alarm call also means that by only applying mascara and eye liner, I can get an extra ten minutes in bed and hopefully won't scare the taxi driver or flight attendants *fingers crossed*. 

Invisibobbles are basically a key part of my life, so it stands to reason that at least one of these bad boys will be either on my wrist, or holed up in my hand luggage. They won't give you a headache if you wear them all day and they also allow you to take them out just before getting off the plane and still have a reasonably good blow dry. 

Eight hours of plane snacks is probably plenty for anyone, so a toothbrush and some toothpaste is a must have for me. If only to stop me eating wine gums for the entire flight. 

To avoid too much dehydration in my skin, I'll be using This Works Light Time Skin Plumper throughout the flight and also REN's new Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift to help hydrate and reduce any puffiness around my eyes. 

I've saved a mini L'Occitane hand cream from my Christmas advent calendar as it's the perfect size to travelling and Melvita's rose balm will be on standby to act as a lip balm/general all round hydrator.

If I was slightly braver, I'd probably take also sheet mask with me for the ultimate in flight skin treat, but I'm not sure my fellow passengers are quite ready for that sight!

What are your favourite in flight beauty products? Is there anything you'd recommend I take with me?
