Summary of the Video:

So once you’ve boarded, settled and the seat-belts sign is off, get thee to the bathroom with your kit.

1. Remove make-up. I recommend using a micellar lotion with a cotton pad-I like Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Lotion as it’s non-comedogenic. I know I sound like a broken record but this is SO important, and take all your make-up off. Wash-off cleansers are not practical on airplanes-I know, I’ve tried and flooded the bathroom floor, resulting in unpleasant wet socks. Nice.

2. Problem-solve. Apply a gentle-but-therapeutic product to bare skin, targeting all trouble-prone areas to suppress any imminent ruptures. I like Medik8 Betagel or La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo particularly in this context because BHAs works as an anti-inflammatory, exfoliant and clog-clearer; whilst niacinamide has anti-acne benefits but will also help fortify your skin’s barrier function, helping to prevent moisture loss and keep skin supple.
I will also use a Vitamin C serum followed by an alpha hydroxy gel if I’m flying in the daytime; and a retinoid at night if I’m flying and sleeping. I like Skinceuticals CE Ferulic and Medik8 3TR or Avene Physiolift Night Smoothing Regenerating Balm.

3. Hydrate. This is something all acne-sufferers are terrified of. I see it in their eyes when I tell them they will need moisturiser to manage the side-effects of their acne meds. But have faith – there are products out there which will not make acne flare-and, yes, you guessed it, they’re non-comedogenic. If you let acne-prone skin dry out, not only will it get dry, doh!, it will revert to its ‘stressed state’ response and break-out. So: the product of choice I will happily spoon on to my own and any fellow acne sufferer’s skin is Obagi Hydrate.

4. Soothe. Areas like the lips and hands really suffer, so be sure to apply a lip balm regularly and pamper your hands and cuticles. Dr Pawpaw Original Balm cannot be beaten for lips and cuticles. La Roche Posay Cicaplast Mains is also genius for parched mitts.
Depending on the length of the flight, I will repeat steps 2 and 3 every so often, 3 especially. Take your own eye-mask, cashmere wrap and socks, even in Economy, this brings a touch of First-Class to the whole experience, and try to relax/sleep. Avoid alcohol and drink lots of water.

Before landing, I will cleanse and apply a light layer of moisturiser. Then conceal any areas of redness and dark circles with a little Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. Add a pop of blush to the cheek, love Stila Convertible Colour in Peony, a layer of gloss, Burberry Rosewood, is my current fave and a touch of mascara, Lancome Hypnose Volume A Porter, and I’m ready to get things done. Just add a well-cut navy blazer for polish a la Elle Macpherson and feel……well, a little bit smug.
