Afternoon delight: You may look weird wearing a sheet mask on a plane, but your skin will thank you

Tomorrow I’m flying to Dubai and while the journey is sure to be comfortable (thanks, Turkish Airlines!) not even the roomiest seat can combat the dry, dry, dry airplane air. I’ve given heavy-duty moisturizers and facial mists a go on previous long-haul flights, but it’s time to try something new: a sheet mask applied mid-flight. The Holiday Vita A mask from South Korean brand Holika Holika caught my eye, as it nourishes and hydrates skin and there’s 10 per package, meaning I can keep using them daily throughout my trip—I’ll be checking out Le Château’s new store in Dubai—and on the flight home. Sure, I may get strange looks from my seatmates when I cover my face in a sheet, but it does mean that no matter what turbulence may occur, all that hydrating goodness is staying on my skin.
