Masks On A Plane: Do You Treat Yourself To In-Flight Pampering?

emb
We suspect the type of people who jet-set are also the type of people with gorgeous skin — not just because they enjoy the finer things in life (read: pricey products), but because they've got ample opportunity to apply face masks mid-air. You heard us right: Airplanes are the new "It" place to get your spa on.
Confirming our suspicions, frequent traveler and blogger Chriselle Lim revealed to The Huffington Post that she regularly treats her skin to in-flight facials using Laneige's Water Sleeping Mask. "I do it for a few hours while I'm on the plane so that when I finally land, my skin is glowing," she says. "And, after about three hours, I'll go back into the restroom, take the mask off, and put my moisturizer on."
It all sounds well and good, but Lim hits the nail on the head when she notes that her product of choice is "a clear mask so you're not going to look crazy on the plane." It's a wise choice on her part — our first thought was whether or not a mid-flight mask would scare our fellow passengers (à la Cate Blanchett's accidental run-in with a neighbor).
So, we pose the question to you, readers: Would you go full-on facial at 30,000 feet? Or, how would you react if your seatmate did? Weigh in below — and click through to HuffPost for the complete story. (The Huffington Post)
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, $23, available at Target.
