In a recent interview with Elle, Paltrow reveals the essentials she always has on hand while jet-setting—and they’re the four tools that keep the side effects of flying (i.e. dull skin and just feeling icky) at bay.
Keep reading for the up-in-the-air hacks that keep Paltrow flying high.
1. Apply a face mask…in flight
“If I’m on a really long flight I’ll put [a face mask] on while I’m watching a movie,” says Paltrow. “I just sit there looking a little weird on the plane.” Hey, no judgment here—other celebs like Chrissy Teigen and Cate Blanchett do the same thing in the name of hydrated skin.
2. Pack a bottle of colloid silver
“I spray [it] under my tongue and on the airplane seat because they say it wards off germs,” says Paltrow.
3. Bring a stash of vitamin C
Paltrow takes a dose at the beginning of her flight to stay healthy, no matter how many of her fellow passengers have the sniffles.
4. Buy a couple of bottles of water at the gate
Because, let’s face it: Those tiny cups they hand on in flight aren’t going to cut it. Even though spritzing a seat or rocking a sheet mask can lead to raised eyebrows from strangers, know that they’re GP-approved strategies for fighting that frazzled post-flight look (and if you glance at her travel selfies, it’s clear that what she’s doing is working).
