Your skin will thank you for a bit of TLC and leave you looking great for landing.

Some carefully chosen hero products and top multi-taskers will also save on space in your bag. Just remember to make sure any liquids are 100ml or less.

If you are flying long-haul, pack a handbag size sachet of facial cleansing wipes to remove make-up when you get to your seat. Instantly refreshing, Nivea Pure & Natural Face Wipes are infused with aloe and argan oil to nourish and smooth skin.

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. The floral water is rich in active ingredients but also has a fresh, delicate scent. Keep it handy when you're on the beach, the organic water is perfect for soothing skin that's been out in the sun.

Liz Earle Superbalm, £16,25, is an emergency skin salve to rescue and soothe skin. Made from pure plant oils and natural waxes plus shea butter, it gently softens and calms dry skin on hands, heels, elbows and lips and also helps condition nails and cuticles. There's a handy 5g pot for £5, perfect for using on the go.

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.

Then add Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer, £5, a fast-acting serum for luminous radiance.

You don't want to overload skin with make up but you do want to look fresh when you arrive. The answer? Light formulations that won't leave skin dry or powdery looking.

First apply BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer Cream with SPF 30, £23. It comes in two shades, offering a hint of skin-perfecting coverage. A great multi-tasker, it diminishes the appearance of discolouration, uneven skin tone and imperfections.

The silky, smooth formula combats flaky dryness, excess oil and the appearance of pores to perfectly prep skin for a flawless foundation application.

Follow with the BareMinerals Ready to Go Comp-lexion Perfection Palette, £39, which includes concealer, pressed foundation, touch-up veil, bronzer, luminiser and brushes in a handy zip-up bag.

Add a natural flush of colour with Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, £19. Now with a mirror compact, it is easy to blend on the cheeks and lips for a soft, stained finish.

Finish with a slick of Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara, £21, to make sure your eye makeup stays in place, and you are ready to go.

Bon voyage...
