By Tara Thompson Rasmus

If you’re armed with the right beautifiers, no one needs to be the wiser that you spent hours in a cabin breathing recycled dry air. Stash these pretty potions in your carry-on, and within five minutes, you’ll be ready to face your final destination looking—and feeling—refreshed.
