However, some of us try and avoid the inevitable drying out of our skin by taking in-flight moisturisers or even masks with us in our bags.
Chrissy Teigen is a famous fan of the in-flight mask, see below.
Sadly, not all of us have the luxury of travelling business class and might find it a little bit more difficult to apply a mask like this on a plane without scaring the other passengers.
But luckily there are plenty of other options that are travel-friendly for those who don’t want to attract the attention of others by looking like Jason from Friday The 13th or Patrick Bateman from American Psycho.
Here are a few of our favourites.
The non-mask in-flight hydrators:
This little coconut anti-ageing face moisturiser is the perfect little travel companion. Packed with nature’s finest ingredients to help you stay nourished and hydrated.

The in-flight masks for those who don’t care if they scare the kids:
