Any jet-setting gal knows all too well the drying effect of airplane air coupled with the stress of getting to flights on time. Let’s be real — at the end of it all, your skin is left feeling more like you got a one-way ticket to the Sahara than a ride to a fab summer getaway. That’s why we’re especially glad that some of Hollywood’s loveliest ladies are eager to share their secrets to how they hop off a plane looking fresh-faced. To protect your complexion from post-travel dullness, snag these 12 celebrity-recommended, in-flight remedies.

Skincare system

1. Victoria Beckham: Since we really, really, really want skin as luminous as Posh’s, we’ll take her word that Dr. Lancer The Method Travel Collection for Face ($135) — a travel-friendly skincare line created by her LA dermatologist — is as great as she says. As she spilled to Elle, Lancer is the genius who solved her skincare woes once and for all.

2. Vanessa Williams: Dry plane air leaves our eyes looking about as jet-lagged as we feel, which is why Williams revealed on her Instagram that she travels with Clear Eyes Redness Relief ($3). It’s like a cool refresher for your eyes.

3. Kim Kardashian: Ever since Bustle unlocked the benefits Kim K. reaps from her silky pillow case, we’ve been antsy to give it a whirl. Catch some much-needed shut-eye on your next flight in Mrs. West style, with a SHHH Silk White Marble Travel Size Pillow ($149). It’ll keep your strands frizz-free and your skin smooth and hydrated.


4. Kristen Bell: Bell spilled to InStyle that she slurps nutrient-enhanced, skin-firming water while in-flight to fend off dehydrated skin. Take a page from her book by adding some bonus goodness to your water with Vital Proteins Marine Collagen Anti-Aging Dietary Supplement ($48) for the same skin-boosting effect.

5. Jennifer Lopez: The Shades of Blue star’s habit of using SK-II Facial Treatment Mask ($17 each) when globetrotting inspired Chrissy Teigen to do the same, according to Travel + Leisure. The two stars’ makeup artist, Kate Best, advises all of her clients to don these ah-mazing masks in-flight, and if J.Lo trusts ’em, we def do too.
