    How does someone who is paid to look good on arrival deal with a beauty routine at the tail end of a long flight? Karlie Kloss broke it down in detail recently on IGTV and she’s inspiring us to break out our beauty freak flag big time  

    Whether it’s for a vacation, a destination wedding or an important work trip, flying for hours on end can suck the life out of our skin — a major beauty dilemma since we’re hoping to look our best once we arrive. KK is giving us permission to go ALL the way with skincare in flight. We may not be working models – and we’re pretty sure every travel buddy we’ve got would ruin us for using an exfoliator like this! – however, there are some great learnings here. Do what you dare, and enjoy our clean swaps below for each step…
