    FIRST AID BEAUTY ULTRA REPAIR INTENSIVE LIP BALM

    The first thing to go? Your lips. We’ve all felt that horrid cracking sensation to the lips when you get dehydrated on a flight, so a lip balm has got to be a long haul flight essential.

    We love this one by First Aid Beauty ’cause it’s pocket-sized (hello airport liquids allowance) and features natural ingredients such as honey, beeswax and colloidal oatmeal, meaning you’re not smothering your lips in chemicals.

    Plus, use a small amount on super dry areas such as your elbows and knees for a quick boost of hydration.

    Of course, we need to add our never-leave-home-without-it favourite: hand cream. As far as skincare basics go, this is definitely up there, and we have loads to hand (geddit?) for whenever we need a lil hydrating on the go.

    This pocket-sized hand cream by Avène is perfect for those with super dehydrated skin on their hands, but also rub into cuticles for an extra shot of moisture whenever you need it.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
