Another Korean beauty brand, Too Cool For School is always introducing new products that are increasingly more innovative than the last. This egg cream mask is great for brightening and nourishing the skin, especially after you've spent the last hour (or more) using your jean jacket as a pillow. The use of egg whites and yolks is also great for girls with oily skin, as eggs tighten pores to reduce sebum (oil) secretion.

Facial mists are a must to carry in your purse during everyday life, but they become particularly important during a flight. For a quick refresher throughout you flight, mist your skin with a hydrating essence. This option from SK-II is great for renewing tired skin and fighting free-radicals. We recommend pouring some into a TSA-friendly spray bottle that's small enough to fit in your cosmetic bag.
