Your skin looks its worst when emerging from an airplane. Why? The air up there is dry, dry, dry—and filled with bacteria (gross, but true). So do your skin a favor and invest in a hydrating mask to bring it back to life. We’ve ranked our favorites—from most luxurious to best bang for your buck—above!

Fresh Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask ($130)

If you follow a beauty editor on Instagram—any beauty editor!—you’ve probably seen this new mask. It’s packed with pure honey, Echinacea, seabuckthorn oil, shea butter, and vitamin E for an incredibly rich dose of hydration. (You won’t even need to apply moisturizer after taking it off.)

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask ($18)

Coconut oil and clary sage—a Mediterranean plant revered for its ability to capture and retain moisture—are at the heart of this fresh-smelling mask.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask ($33)

This might be called a mask, but think of it as a super rich moisturizer. You don’t have to wash it off and if you’re feeling particularly dry in the morning, you can apply and go.

La Mer The Hydrating Facial Mask ($250)

It’s not a casual purchase, but LaMer’s called a miracle product for a reason. Their cloth masks are equivalent to a decadent dollop of both cream and serum.

Lancome Hydra-Intense Mask ($35)

Lancome’s Hydra-Intense Mask fights lines and wrinkles—while moisturizing—for plumped up skin that makes everything look smoother.

Sisley Express Flower Gel Mask ($136)

If you’re hopping off the plane and going straight to a party, this is your best bet. Sisley’s mask has earned its ‘Express’ title, rehydrating skin in minutes. (Smells good, too!)

Neutrogena Deep Hydrating Mask ($15)

Hydrating cloth masks got their start in Asia, where you’d have to go to get Neutrogena’s easy-to-use version—if YesStyle.com wasn’t offering to ship it straight to you.

Eve Lom Moisture Mask ($90)

Another one you don’t actually have to remove, Eve Lom’s mask acts as a barrier once you put it on your skin, preventing further dehydration as well as any environmental damage.

Dr. Jart + Water Fuse Water-Full Hydrogel ($9)

If dry skin isn’t a major concern for you and you don’t want to invest in one of the above, snag a single mask from Dr. Jart + to use after a particularly long flight. Trust us, you’ll be glad you have it.
