    I'm going to be taking a 14 hour long flight this weekend and I really don't want to have dry skin and break outs afterwards (this is what usually happens after a long flight). So what do you guys suggest I do?

    Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and fizzy drinks - in fact just don't bother with them.
    Use moisturising cream.

    Mix an oil in with your moisturiser (I recommend Vitamin E oil) as this will seal in moisture. You may look a little greasy at first, but this should keep you looking fresh for a while. Just remember to make sure it fits into carry on regulations. Also consider investing in a facial spray .

    Do you think just a regular moisturiser would be enough or do I need something heavier like vaseline? I really rather not look like a greasy slug

    No idea, but the answer by TurtleberrySoup sounds like good advice.
    But bear in mind I'm a guy, I have no knowledge of these things

    Awesome idea. I'm going to try this tonight, just to get the oil to moisturiser ratio right hehe. I shall look into facial sprays as well. It would probably be fun to see people's reaction when I randomly take out a spray bottle and spray my face

    Ahaha. You clearly have some knowledge or maybe that's just common sense

    :L I recommend Simple's brand of moisturisers, and you only need a little bit of oil - I usually apply about a level teaspoon of moisturiser and 3 - 4 drops of the oil. You can always reapply as necessary throughout the flight. The good thing about Vitamin E oil is that it absorbs really quickly. Shea butter is also good for locking in moisture. You can find it in most black hair shops, and it's available on Amazon.

    I get nose bleeds during long-haul flights from the dry air. 14 hours is a very long flight. I'd advise getting a small tin of vaseline to keep things moisturized there.
