From La Mer hand creams to tea tree oil, keep scrolling to shop the beauty buys that some of our favourite celebs wouldn't step foot on a plane without.
Kim Kardashian West
Kim previously revealed some of her favourite travel products to fans via her now-defunct app. On the list? This seriously luxurious silk pillowcase and eye mask set. "I always sleep on a silk pillowcase," Kim explained. "The silk is really good for your skin and hair—and it's so soft. This travel set is perfect for the plane because it comes with a travel-size pillow and a sleep mask."
To keep travel-related stress under wraps, Kim relies on this affordable aromatherapy spray to use on the plane. You can spray it directly onto your body to calm the senses and help you unwind if you suffer from anxiety while travelling.
A cult face mask that KKW swears by for long-haul flights. It uses a nourishing blend of vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants and exfoliating extracts to soothe skin, boost dewiness and reveal more radiant skin. Plus, you don't need to rinse it off so it's perfect for using on the plane.
Kim claims that these soothing eye patches are a "must-have for long flights." Pop them on for just 10 minutes and these cooling gels will calm, de-puff and brighten even the most tired of eyes.
"When I'm travelling, I make sure to take off my makeup, cleanse my face, and then cover myself in the Sarah Chapman Stem Cell Collagen Activator Duo," VB revealed in an interview with Into the Gloss. "The serum comes in these little vials with the dropper separately. Once you’re ready to use it, you break the seal and shake it to activate. I make sure to put it on my neck and around my eyes as well. The airplane air is so horrific, but this makes my skin feel so nice."
"When I'm travelling, I love this Barbara Sturm cleanser," said Beckham. "It gets nice and foamy and comes in this really nice little travel size so it's perfect to use on the plane."
This is a luxurious mask Victoria always has in her travel case to combat the after-effects of flying. She says it's an "amazing stretch face mask. When you have been up since 4 a.m. with jet lag," Beckham revealed on Instagram.
A face mist is a great addition to your carry-on for keeping your skin hydrated and dewy on the plane. Victoria describes this one as "the perfect product to spray over makeup to rehydrate throughout the day."
On a recent trip to Sydney, VB took to Instagram to offer up some travel advice. "Remember to look after your skin and hydrate when travelling," she said alongside a snap of these collagen sachets. Just mix one sachet with water for a boost of fatty acids and vitamin C to hydrate, brighten and restore the glow to your skin.
"I'm no germophobe, but when I get on a plane I always use some quick hand wipes or a travel sanitiser spray to wipe it all down," Markle revealed on her former lifestyle website, The Tig.
"I can tell you the most honest answer because I literally got off of a plane yesterday after a five-hour flight and I leave tomorrow to go to Toronto," Meghan said when asked about her best travel tip in an interview with Allure. "The one thing that I cannot live without when I'm travelling is a small container of tea tree oil. It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it's my little cure-all. It's inexpensive, it's small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time."
“Pack your favourite multiuse stick and face spritz for a quick touch up on cheeks, lips, face when you land," said Meghan in an interview with Birchbox.
