We all know that inflight cabin air can be very drying. So one of the skin challenges for air stewardesses who work onboard a plane for extended hours would be having dry and dehydrated skin issues.

So how do SQ girls protect their skin from those drying conditions, while still putting their best face forward in their line of work? We let you in on just how they do it with these much-loved moisturisers that do the job of keeping their skin supple and moisturised.

R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion, $149, SK-II 


This product may look lightweight but it is extremely moisturising and glides onto the skin easily and smoothly. It absorbs quickly into the skin and is non-sticky, leaving your skin smooth to the touch after application.

What truly makes this product stand out is its anti-aging properties, thanks to a formula that is infused with RNArchitect Complex and Pitera™ and chlorella extract that reduces wrinkles and fine lines caused by lack of moisturise.

It also acts as a great primer to prep skin before applying makeup. After regular usage, skin will look firmer, and more plump and supple.
