Another day, another flawless, fresh-faced airport arrival by a vibrant celebrity hot off a transcontinental flight. Because  of course  that's what most people look like after sitting on a plane for six hours.
Oh wait, just kidding! Most — and by most, we mean, normal — people generally stumble off of the plane in a bleary-eyed, puffy-faced, smudged-makeup, bedhead-ed daze.
But it doesn't have to be this way! And why should it?
Tabloid photo opportunities aren't the only reason for wanting to show the world your glam side when you land: You probably don't have a pack of paparazzi ready to snap your airport swag, but you might have a long-distance love interest to impress just the other side of security.
Or perhaps you're heading to an important work meeting straight from the airport, with no time to stop at your hotel for a quick refresh.
And—let's be real—maybe you just want to be Instagram-ready the moment you step outside the terminal, eager to mark the beginning of your hard-earned #vacay with a selfie.
You don't have to be famous to look your best right off the plane—you just have to be carry-on savvy. And with these nine essentials, we've got you covered.

1. Water Is Your Face's Best Friend!

Flying is severely dehydrating, and even more so if you've had a glass of wine or two in the air. Not drinking enough can leave you looking pale and flaky. To make sure you stay hydrated—and avoid the highway robbery airport price of bottled water—bring your own lightweight,  sleek stainless steel Hydro Flaskreusable bottle, as a constant reminder to fill up to look fab!

2. Sleep To Rejuvenate Your Skin

Flying is also exhausting, and nothing takes a toll on your skin—not to mention, your mood—like a lack of sleep.  Stay looking fresh by ensuring some shut-eye in the sky with a  sleeping mask and   ear plugs, or indulge in some serious silence with    noise-cancelling headphones.

And if you're SERIOUS about sleeping on a plane...

3. Can't Sleep? De-Puff And Knock Out Dark Circles With A Collagen Eye Mask

So, okay. Some people might think you're a little weird for jumping two feet first into a beauty regimen while still on an airplane. But there are WAY weirder things people do when they travel every day, and besides, applying a tiny, little (yet massively refreshing)  collagen eye mask for few minutes never hurt anyone. We've done it before, and trust us, no one cares. Apply the gel pads directly under your eyes as you're starting to land, then remove after five to 10 minutes. It'll feel like you just woke up from some serious beauty rest!

4. Blot Away Plane Face

"Plane Face", while not necessarily a scientific term, refers to the oily, smudgy, generally worse-for-wear mug you see in the airport bathroom mirror immediately after deplaning. Good thing blotting papers - Boscia has a great variety—make actual miracles when it comes to combatting this look, getting you back your pretty pre-flight visage in no time.

5. Build Your Own Mini Beauty Kit For The Airport Restroom

Hitting the terminal with a fresh face—and without spending ages in an airport bathroom—is super easy when you pack a  mini beauty kit (much smaller than your everyday makeup case) so you'll have everything you need for a quick spruce-up the moment you land. We recommend the following items to ensure you look your best upon arrival.

6. Dry Shampoo To The Rescue!

Let's be honest—whose hair doesn't look a little greasy, limp, or matted after hours on an airplane. Enter:  dry shampoo.  This is the stuff of magic, people.  Spray a little on your roots— Living Proof's version works super well—and let it sit for 30 seconds. Then massage and shake through your hair to get back some volume and shine.

7. Didn't Have Time To Do Your Hair? A Mini Straightener Can Save The Day!

Are you that freak of nature who makes time to blow-dry and straighten your hair, all before catching a 6 AM flight? If so, congrats! But probably, you're not. Never fear! A   mini straightener can totally up your travel hair game. This is practically the reason the thing was invented! And believe it or not, many airport bathrooms have outlets. So go ahead and flat iron away, relishing in all that sleep you saved this morning.

8. Make Sure Your Outfit Is On Point

Would you like pretzels, peanuts, or cookies...all down your shirt? Travel can be hard on your clothes, wrinkling and sprinkling them with all the crumbs from your snacks in the sky. And because it's not always easy to do a wardrobe change in an airport bathroom, you can still look your best with the help of a  mini lint roller to freshen up your travel gear.
