These sets all promise to rehydrate and revive your skin, so at least you'll be glowing while you're waiting in line at customs. -E.W.

Nordic Healing Though created as a longer regimen, Skyn Iceland's 5 Day Detox Kit (888/333-7596; www.skyniceland.com; $45) also purports to perform magic on an overnight flight. The four products work together to replenish nutrients that are stripped away during situations that stress your skin.
Taking the Waters Minerals extracted off the coasts of Hawaii, Japan, and Norway fortify the Jet Lag Skincare Kit (888/ 748-5678; www.shuuemura-usa.com; $90) by Shu Uemura. With a cleansing oil, a toner, an exfoliator, a cloth face mask, and a recovery cream, it's the next best thing to having a spa onboard.
