My Skincare Prep Before a Long Haul Flight

Hello beauties,

By now you know I’m a massive skincare junkie. When I go on holidays, I get super excited not only to pack my clothes but also all my skincare and makeup items. In addition to all the packing and organising done beforehand, I always make sure to prep my skin. Here’s my skincare routine before a long haul flight.


The Night Before a Long Haul Flight

Before a long haul flight I always use a drying out face mask, to dry any blemishes and absorb excess oils. My go to mask for this is, Glam Glow Super Mud Clearing Treatment as it draws out the excess oils and helps heal any existing blemishes.

After I wash off the face mask I finish off my skincare by wiping my face with a cotton round of Alpha H Liquid Gold*. I use Liquid Gold as a chemical exfoliant to remove any dead skin and excess oils. Click here for a full review of the Alpha H Liquid Gold.

The Morning Before a Long Haul Flight

This can vary a bit depending on how much time I have before a flight. I always start with a hydrating face mask such as Glam Glow Thirsty Mud. I leave this on for as long as possible, anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours…. In the morning the key is to hydrate your skin as much as possible before you get on your flight as once you’re on the plane you skin will dry out from the air conditioning.

Just before I’m getting ready to leave the house I wash off the face mask and finish off my face with a serum such as, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and of course a heavy duty moisturiser like the Weleda Skin Food*.

I hope my travel skincare prep routine gives you a few tips when you’re on your next long haul flight x

  1. Some good tips here…and good timing since I’m about to travel in August & there’s a couple of long-haul flights involved. My face turns into a tomato when flying (either that or it just feels REALLY hot), so I’m conscious of keeping up the moisture levels in my skin.


      1. Sorry I haven’t responded until now…I’m going around the world, but I’ll be spending my time in the northern summer/early autumn.


  2. I love skincare too. 🙂 I just recently got my hands on that Weleda Skin Food and cannot wait to start using it! Seems like it’s the kind of basic must have everyone has. Looking forward to seeing how it goes. I wish I could say I travel a lot, have fun on your adventures! 🙂 xo
