Before you leave the house, decant some Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water, £16, into a small pump action spray bottle and spritz onto the skin during the flight.

Before landing, treat tired puffy eyes to Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, £20. The light cream will gently moisturise around the eye area, so you don't have to hide them behind dark glasses.
