A'Kin Pure Radiance Organic Rosehip Oil

Slip this bottle into your washbag and you will have with you a product that not only moisturises but also heals - it's really effective on insect-bite and acne scars. Don't be alarmed by the bright orange colour: it signals the strength and purity of the oil. £16 (Dh93) for 23ml, plus £8 p&p (www.cultbeauty.co.uk; 00 44 8456 529 521).

Alpha H Liquid Gold Night Treatment Oil

If you're suffering from jetlag, apply this before going to bed and when you wake up and cleanse your face, you will find your skin noticeably clearer. "A facial in your sleep" is overselling it a bit, but this really works, thanks to the ingredients of licorice to reduce blemishes and glycolic acid - derived from sugar-cane - to dissolve dead skin cells. Especially good on mature skins. £31.50 (Dh182) for 100ml, plus £8 p&p (www.cultbeauty.co.uk; 00 44 8456 529 521).

Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream

When cabin air and air-conditioners have dehydrated your skin, this moisturiser will quickly teach you why Aesop has become such a cherished brand, especially for those with sensitive skin. It comes packaged in brown glass to protect it from UVA rays and thus reduce preservative-use. It contains aloe, macadamia nuts and coconut. £33 (Dh191) for 120ml plus £8 p&p (www.cultbeauty.co.uk; 00 44 8456 529 521).
