It happens to the best of us: When the airplane wheels go up, our carefully honed food, fitness, and skincare habits tend to fly out the window.

Most health-conscious travelers improvise with protein bars and online workout videos on the road, but there’s a certain class of particularly zealous celebrities who get extra creative when it comes to maintaining their wellness routines away from home—and if that means getting some side-eye from fellow jet-setters, so be it.

Whether it’s slapping on a beauty mask mid-flight, spritzing colloidal silver on their plane seat, or taking SoulCycle bikes with them on the road, these stars are pros at keeping up with their healthy lifestyles while traveling (and not thinking twice about how high-maintenance their habits may seem).

Read on for the 7 most jaw-dropping ways celebs maintain their wellness routines while traveling.

1. They don’t leave home without SoulCycle

Lady Gaga has never been subtle by any means, and that goes for her on-the-road workout habits too. The over-the-top pop star is rumored to have purchased two customized SoulCycle bikes—for her tour bus. Hey, if you need to spin, you should be able to do it anytime, anywhere (I guess?).

2. They sport sheet masks in the air

Beauty has no boundaries. Well, that’s the case for Chrissy Teigen at least, who is not embarrassed about looking like Freddy Krueger on a commercial flight. (“Scaring children” is her caption for this pic.) The air on planes is the worst for your skin, so Chrissy: you do you.

3. They keep a trainer on-call 24/7

Imagine having your fitness pro at your beck and call for whenever you feel like getting your ass kicked. Rihanna has that luxury with long-time trainer Ary Nunez, who stays by the pop star’s side whenever she’s on the road. Tough job, but someone’s gotta keep RiRi looking fierce.

4. They pack an entire gym in their suitcases

Madonna may now be 50-something, but that doesn’t mean she’s about to start slacking on her workouts. And why should she? When the singer’s on tour, her trainer brings a portable gym (with everything they’ll need) so Madonna can stay in stadium show-ready shape.

5. They have late-night kickboxing sessions

When you’re on tour (or on vacay), sometimes you may get a hankering to do a few rounds of counter punches and knee strikes. Demi Lovato gets to feed that craving—her kickboxing trainer travels with her so she can fit in as many 10:30 p.m. rounds as she wants (and not hurt a backup dancer in the process).

6. They spritz silver on the airplane seat

If you were to be asked to name a celebrity who is serious about her health game, Gwyneth Paltrow‘s probably the first to come to mind. So it’s no surprise that the actress and Goop founder sprays colloidal silver on her airplane seat (and her children’s) to kill germs. The particles purportedly have anti-bacterial and anti-viral powers—and no, Paltrow doesn’t mind the strange glances people give her as she does it. “It’s worth the few odd looks,” she says.

7. They cleanse their skin mid-flight

As we know, flying seriously dehydrates your skin. Dancer-slash-actress-slash-activewear designer Julianne Hough cleanses her face halfway through a flight, then follows that up with a toning pad. She recommends using sealed wipes (easy to travel with), and when it comes to judgy bystanders who aren’t keen on public displays of beautification? Just ignore ’em (your complexion will thank you).

Traveling soon but don’t know how to pack? Here’s our guide. And if you want a look into the makeup bags of your favorite celebs, well, we’ve got you covered!
