Weather you are a frequent flyer or an occasional traveller, getting some shut-eye on the red-eye is never easy – especially when there’s a crying baby or chatty passenger within earshot.

But according to the latest research from travel website Expedia.co.uk, it’s not babies but rear-seat kickers that have been named the most annoying in-flight companions.

If you’ve been plagued by a restless flyer, at least you can always arrive looking fabulous by following these feel-good tips below.

Stay hydrated with a water spray

It’s super easy for your skin to get all flaky and dehydrated while flying, because of the recirculated air in the cabin. However, Avene Evian Facial spray is a must have, from air hostesses to beauty gurus, everybody swears by it. Not only does it prevent your skin from getting dehydrated, but also keeps it fresh throughout the flight. Remember to drink lots of water too to keep those hydration levels up!

Quench your skin with a heavy-duty moisturiser

A hydration cream is a winner and is exactly what your skin needs, especially on a long-haul flight. L’Occitane Hydra Vital Cream provides up-to 48 hours of hydration for that thirst quenched skin, and will help you feel rejuvenated. It also makes skin look plumper and smoother.

Sleep to refresh your skin

If you’ve ever wondered how Victoria Beckham or Miranda Kerr looks so good after stepping off an awfully long flight, Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask might be the answer.

A nourishing facial mask is a must for your skin, not only does this mask provide long-term moisturising, but its super-charged plankton detoxes yet plumps the skin. Just nap with it on, and remove before landing.

Stay sanitised

Wipes are essential considering on planes you’ll be touching screens, food, windows and using the loo alongside so many other passengers. There’ll be germs galore, so wipe down your tray table and anti-bac your hands as and when you need to. Cuticura has a range that’ll do the trick.

Pep up your eyes with an eye cream

We all need a magical quick-fix just before landing after a long-haul flight when our eyes are all jet lagged and droopy. Argan+ Argan Oil Multi-Action Eye Cream is a super-fast absorbing cream enriched with hydrating argan oil that lifts and soothes eyes instantly.

Create a spa in the sky

Give your skin a luxurious in-flight spa treatment with Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil which combines natural plant extracts and essential oils of rosewood and hazelnut to balance the skin so you’ll glow as you enter the airport.

…And relax

Travelling can take a toll on your neck and lower back, that’s why this Tempur's travel range is perfect. Most people don’t realise how important it is to have a really good pillow especially on long-haul flights to hold your posture and to prevent strain on the neck. On another note, an eye mask will also boost your chances of a peaceful nap if your neighbour has left their little light on.
