A red-eye flight isn’t something anyone looks forward to. And of course, no number of tricks can substitute for a good night’s sleep in your bed. But to help you hide the fact that you spent all night cramped in seat 27A, here are a few tips to try out. 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

The importance of hydration cannot be overstated when it comes to air travel. The low humidity levels in airplane cabins can lead to dehydration, which can make your skin look dry and tired. To combat this, make sure you’re drinking at least eight ounces of water every hour of your flight. And consider bringing a moisturizer you can use for your hands and face for extra hydration.

Master the Art of In-Flight Comfort

Making the best out of the cramped seating and limited space can significantly impact your ability to rest and, consequently, your appearance upon landing. So make sure to bring along a supportive neck pillow, eye mask, and earplugs.

Refresh Upon Landing

Lastly, consider bringing along a “refresh” kit to give yourself a touch-up when you land. Wash your face. Brush your teeth. Moisturize one more time. And, if possible, change into a fresh set of clothes after landing.
