These five beauty must-haves will cement your jet-set status and make traveling a breeze

Who doesn't love the idea of a jet-setting lifestyle teemed with soaking up new experiences in the other side of the globe? While that sounds incredibly glamorous, your skin might not be thrilled with the idea of being exposed to the quality of aircraft cabin air for long periods of time.

Take on these five luxe beauty products that we're loving this month to ensure your skin is looking smooth and flawless upon landing at your new destination:

Invest in a powerful but gentle cleanser to remove makeup easily while cleansing your face as you're up 36,000 feet in the air. La Mer recently unveiled its first Cleansing Micellar Water, a rinse-free and soap-free formula to detoxify and deeply cleanse skin. Incorporated with its Miracle Broth and marine nutrients, the Cleansing Micellar Water lifts impurities while hydrating your complexion adequately, so you don't have to worry about your skin drying out post-cleansing. 


La Mer The Cleansing Micellar Water (RM340) will be available August 2016 in all La Mer counters nationwide.

Talk about an easy breezy, grab-and-go kit that combines luxury and unprecedented science in one. Clé de Peau Beauté's prestigious skincare line, Synactif, is infused with an exclusive and revolutionary ingredient, MACC that strengthens the lymphatic channel function to optimise skin's ability to eliminate unwanted substances.

This new kit features six starter-pack sized products in a pretty pouch to kickstart your in-flight beauty routine: a purifying soap to remove makeup and cleanse skin; daytime moisturiser enriched with SPF30 PA++++ to protect skin from UV rays; rich face cream to keep dark circles, fine lines and dullness at bay; hydrating lotion; nighttime moisturiser to work as an overnight skin saviour; and a rose Eau de Parfum for a light floral-scented veil. 


Clé de Peau Beauté Synactif Coffret in travel size (RM1,300) will be available this August 2016 at all Clé de Peau Beauté counters in Isetan KLCC, Parkson Pavilion, and Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang.


Cabin air might just wreak havoc on your skin, especially we're talking long-distance flights. Dior One Essential Mist Lotion is a triple anti-pollution hybrid lotion to cleanse, rebalance, and detoxify your skin—all with a boost of instant freshness. Need a perk-me-up after that long nap on the plane? A single spritz  is all you need to wake your complexion up, all thanks to hibiscus extract that has extraordinary powers of detoxification. 

Dior One Essential Mist Lotion (RM248) is now available at all Dior Beauty counters nationwide.

If you've always wondered why your skin gets extra dry when you're up in the air, here's the sitch: the air in a plane cabin is low in humidity, hence the air draws moisture from wherever it can, even your skin! Protect your hands with L'Occitane Lavender Hand Cream that's enriched with shea butter and lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence. 


Don't just get any sheet mask to pamper your skin in-flight. Invest in Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask to infuse your skin with concentrated active ingredients. Its foil-backed sheet ensures maximum absorption along with hyaluronic acid and anti-irritants such as Lady's Thistle and Birch Extract to soothe fatigued skin while keeping it hydrated.
