In-Flight Skin Savers

Tom Schierlitz

Protect your skin on the go.

Josie Maran Argan Oil: Nicknamed Liquid Gold for its cosmetic properties, this wrinkle-correcting elixir derived from the argan tree, which grows in Morocco’s arid southwest, is also just the thing for cabin dehydration. Josie Maran Cosmetics’ is less greasy and packed with vitamin E. $48 for 50 ml;

Air Repair Rescue Balm: Created by a frequent traveler whose skin was ravaged by recycled air, this richly emollient multipurpose balm—full of sweet almond, lavender and jojoba oils—forms a protective barrier for crack-prone areas like the skin between fingers. $10 for 26 ml;

Elizabeth Arden Eight-Hour Cream: Formulated in 1930 by Arden herself, the recipe for this cream hasn’t changed in 82 years. The gloppy, odd-smelling ointment is an in-flight one-size-fits-all beauty regime: Slough away dry skin, set eyebrows and coat chapped lips. $20 for 1.7 oz;
