1. Use a Mask

You can either buy a packet, tube or individual mask to put on during the plane. While normally we think of clay masks as the go-to, this may wreak havoc on your skin when on the plane.
The reason being is that your skin loses moisture faster in the air than on the ground. This means that a mask already drying up your skin is not going to help this process. Instead, go for a hydrating mask that can help slow this process down.
2. Get Some Zzzs
Let’s face it, while weddings are memorable and fun, they can be tiring. Especially if you and your spouse are going from the wedding to the honeymoon, you may find yourselves worn out and exhausted.
Use the time on the plane to catch up on sleep so that when you do arrive to your destination you are more refreshed and awake.
(And, as Cosmopolitan points out, your skin will thank you, as lack of sleep can make skin look dull and bags form under your eyes.)
3. Wear a Good Quality Sunscreen
The truth is, when you are in the air you are close to the sun compared to the ground. That being said, it is recommended to wear a good quality sunscreen when you board a flight. Doing so will help protect your skin from those UV rays.
4. Give Yourself a Mani and Pedi
Why not indulge in your honeymoon flight by giving yourself a mani and pedi while on board. (Why not consider 14 days lasting gel nail polish colors by Pink Gellac?) Doing this will not only pass the time but allow you to give yourself a relaxing experience.
5. Slather on the Moisturizer
Speaking of dried skin, you can skip the mask and slather on some moisturizer instead — (or why not indulge in both?)
6. Check Your Wedding Registry
Why not take the time to skin your wedding registry and take in the love and care your family and friends expressed in their gift-giving? (Speaking of which, read more here about how you can customize your wedding registry.)
7. Wear Makeup or Go Bare Skin
It really depends on your comfortability level. Some women may love to go on their honeymoon flight with a full face of makeup.
Other women may skip on the lipstick and foundation and opt for going bare face instead. Know that as long as you are comfortable in your preference, it doesn’t matter.
8. Moisturize Your Hands and Arms
Other than your face, make sure you also moisturize your hands and arms to help with the effects of moisture loss on the plane.
9. Invest in Travel-Friendly Makeup
This especially goes for any large liquid foundations or other liquid products for that matter. Remember, you don’t want to bring large liquid-based containers with you as carry on. Otherwise, you will have to trash those items.
10. Drink That Water
Make sure that you drink, drink, drink that H2O before, during, and after your honeymoon flight. The reason being is that, as Refinery29 states, helps keep your skin hydrated, not to mention it will put your bloating on hold.
11. Alcohol or No Alcohol?
To drink champagne or not—especially when it is your honeymoon—is up to you and your spouse. Please know that if you do decide to sip on a glass of bubbly, you will have to drink some more water since alcohol is a diuretic. In other words, similar to coffee, it can make your dehydrated.
Know that dehydration can make your skin look lackluster, dull, and tired. However, a glass of red wine, according to SELF, can actually have anti-aging effects. So, why not fill up a glass of vino?
Whether you are taking an international Jet Charter trip or a more local flight, you can start your honeymoon on the plane using these in-flight beauty tips.
