Skincare, Sleep and Overnight Flights
At the end of an overnight flight, the mirrors in airline bathrooms are the ultimate truth-tellers. They show every crease and line and prove that nothing - bar an all-night drinking and clubbing session - dehydrates skin as much as a long-haul flight.
Cult British make-up artist and facialist Frances Prescott has produced Tri-Balm, a joyous multi-tasker. At 70g, in my dreams, there will be a smaller travel version (I really do like to travel light) but in the meantime, this triples up as a cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser, bringing hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and Vitamin E and blackcurrant plus beeswax as cleanser.
The end result feels like silk on the skin and there’s a touch of geranium oil to help in the wind-down process. In the confined space of an airline cabin, that you apply straight to your face from the twist-up container is a bonus.
