Celebrities travel a lot - which means many of them have excellent advice on how to feel and look good on long-haul flights.

While you might not be jetting around on a private plane, you can still take tips from these well-seasoned travellers to make your next flight more bearable.

Margot Robbie

The Aussie star beats jetlag with the use of ginger.

"I use Aesop Ginger Flight Therapy on my temples and wrists," the actress says.

"It's meant to help with jetlag. I don't know if it does, but I like the smell of it so I do it anyway."

Margot also gets immune-booster shots with ginger and turmeric.

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe swears by cuticle oil to prevent the dry air in planes making her cuticles split and sore.

"Since I’m so crazy about my hands, the second I sit down, I put on cuticle oil," she says.

"Even though I put sunscreen on my hands every day, my cuticles are still so dry, so I make sure to take care of that right away."

The OPI ProSpa Nail & Cuticle Oil To Go, $17.95, is a great affordable option that's easy to carry in your hand luggage.

Kate Winslet

If the Oscar-winning actress knows her skin needs to look top-notch straight after a flight, she opts for a sheet mask.

“If I know that I have to look decent as soon as I step off the plane then yes, I do go for a sheet mask," says the actress.

"The Lancôme Advanced Genifique Mask is amazing.

"I always feel a bit daft sitting there looking like Hannibal Lecter with the cut-out eye slits.

"But if I know that I have to go directly from the airport to record a live talk show or to a photo shoot, I just have to do something to help out the face whilst I'm in the air!”

Kourtney Kardashian

The newly married reality star swears by silk to de-puff eyes and help her sleep on flights.

"I like bringing a silk travel pillow on airplanes and a silk eye mask is always in my carry-on bag," she says.

We love the Silvi Anti-Acne Silk Sleep Mask, $49, which is 99% antibacterial, so you won't wake up with any unexpected blemishes.

They also make a Bamboo Sleep Mask, $39, as well as an Anti-Acne Silk Face Mask, $29, which is extra soft against your face for long-haul flights.

To keep your masks clean for the flight home, be sure to pack some of Silvi's Zero-Waste Laundry Strips, $17.10, in your case too.

These clever strips are an eco-friendly alternative to bulky liquids and powders, and are ideal for washing silk, particularly while you're away.

Gwyneth Paltrow

A good hand sanitiser in your bag is now an essential part of plane travel.

Gwyneth loves the mandarin and rosemary scented Resurrection Rinse Free Hand Wash from Aesop, $10.

"Planes can be dirty and this is a good-smelling, all-natural hand sanitiser," the Goop founder says.

Meghan Markle

You don't always need to splash out on expensive beauty products to freshen up mid-flight though.

The Duchess of Sussex swears by tea tree oil as her in-flight essential.

"It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it's my little cure-all," says Meghan Markle.

"It's inexpensive, it's small enough to carry, and I bring it with me all the time."

The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil, $10, is naturally sourced from Community Fair Trade partners in Kenya and comes in an easily portable small bottle.
