Beauty on Board: Treats for Long-Haul Flights


Make the most of a long-haul flight by letting your skin feed while you sleep. You’ll wake up with a refreshed face and a stunning glow to go.

Here are our favourite overnight facial treats.

Enriched with micro-lipids, Ericson Laboratoire Hydraclinic Aquafix Serum (R850) adjusts the amount of moisture it provides the skin. Like a reservoir, it seals water in the skin for instant plumpness.

Leave the OptiPhi Classic Hydra-Derm HA Masque (R540) on for optimal hydration to plump up the skin, disguise fatigue and fight the signs of ageing.

BioNike Defence Elixage Huile Serum (R645) is an anti-ageing regenerating oil that leaves skin silky smooth. The three-fold effect includes a detoxifying action, collagen and elastin support and a renewed glow. Exclusive to Dis-Chem

Apply Gatineau Age Benefit Regenerating Night Elixir (R1 095) under or over your moisturiser before you retire to make your skin look like it’s had eight hours’ sleep. Benefits include anti-fatigue action, increased firmness and anti-ageing.

Relax tired, stressed skin with QMS Hydro Foam Mask (R865), an intensely hydrating foam mask that soaks into the skin within minutes. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a delicious treat for inflight skin.

Nighttime is key for skin detox and regeneration and Nuxe Nuxellence Detox (R675) is the perfect product to assist with this process while helping to “recharge” and rejuvenate.

Biomedical Emporium Vitamin E Therapy Serum (R615) is ideal for tired and stressed skin, helping to calm the complexion after UV and free radical exposure, while deeply hydrating and providing anti-ageing benefits.

A rich, easily absorbed formula for skin that needs extra nourishment, African Extracts AdvantAGE Firming Night Cream (R150) helps to smooth and plump as it restores moisture. We also love the price!
