When it comes to looking glamorous, air stewardesses are in a league of their own. They’re like superwomen: They can push trolleys, balance food trays, and clean toilets throughout the flight, and somehow still waltz out of the aircraft like models on the runway. So how exactly do they manage to evade the evils of frizzy hair, puffy eyes, and more? We speak to a team of cabin crew members to find out their top beauty tips.
#1 Drink Water
Most people don’t know this, but the air in the plane cabin is actually recirculated and moisture-free, which is why it saps moisture from your skin. To avoid flaky skin and breakouts, make sure you prep your body by drinking lots of water.
#2 Use Moisture-Boosting Products
On the same note, give your skin added hydration by the using products targeted at dry skin. Instead of the lighter day creams, opt for extra rich night moisturizers or overnight masks.
Thinking of using a facial mist? Don’t waste your time: The air will absorb the moisture from it before it even reaches your skin.
#3 Avoid Makeup Before Your Flight
A lot of us are reluctant to leave the house without first applying some bb cream and eyeliner, but trust us (or rather, our beauty gurus) and skip the makeup. The cleaner your skin, the more efficient it is at lapping up the goodies from your skincare products. If you must have makeup on before the flight, make sure to cleanse it thoroughly as soon as you board the plane.
#4 Put On (or Touch Up) Your Makeup Around 1 Hour Before Landing
One hour would give you just enough time to get dolled up for your first selfie at your holiday destination! Don’t wait till the last minute to put on your makeup—as the plane descends, the ride gets inevitably bumpier. Imagine lining your lips or applying mascara like that!

#5 Avoid Matte Lipsticks and Waterproof Mascara
Although super handy in humid Singapore, these products are especially drying and unsuitable for already dehydrated skin and lashes. Forgo the mascara, and swap the matte lippie for a tinted lip balm instead. If your lips are chapped, lipstick will settle in the lines anyway.
#6 Prepare Your Hair For the Drought
Nope, your luscious locks aren’t spared from the unforgiving dry air! To avoid frizzy static hair, make sure you wash your mane just before your trip. Use a leave-in conditioner or hair oil on your hair ends to prevent dryness. If you suffer from greasy roots, pack a powdered dry shampoo on board. (Note: Aerosols are not allowed on flights!) For volume, those with long hair can tie their tresses up in a loose ponytail, untying it upon disembarking.
#7 Abstain From Caffeine, Alcohol, and High-Sodium Snacks
Looking good comes from within too! Avoid processed snacks like chips and cup noodles, as they are high in sodium and causes bloating. Additionally, cut back (or better still, abstain completely from) coffee and alcohol. They will only worsen your body’s dehydration!
