"To avoid the ffects of low humidity and retain moisture, it's best to take the necessary precautions. While some stylng products are a definite no when flying, a good tricky is to take a small intense moisturiser for the skin and an oil or serum for your hair."2. Luminate your skin"Avoid using a foundation while flying as these can end up drying out your skin," says the beauty expert. "However, if you need a little pick-me-up, try a tinted moisturiser – this will give you a bit of colour while keeping you hydrated."Then, for an added touch, apply concealer under the eyes to give a refreshed look."3. Add a pop of colour"Tiredness and dehydration can lead to your skin looking a little washed out," says Samantha. " To help avoid this, pack a bronzer in your hand luggage and use before stepping off the plane. You can also add a pop of colour to your lips for a glam finish."4. Widen your eyes

A lot of us struggle to sleep on the plane, so Samantha recommends faking those eight hours. "Try Boots Pharmaceuticals Tired Eyes Eye Drops (£3.10) – this gives dry or tired eyes a gentle refreshment and soothes at the same time," she says.
