Lotion Up For Landing, Part I

As you're packing for your Summer travels, don't forget to bring along a good moisturizer. After spending hours high in the sky on an airplane, the stale recycled air can wreak havoc on your skin.

So today I'm kicking off a three-party series on facial moisturizing lotions. Not only are these creams luxuriously rich, but they're also less than 3 ounces, so you can toss them in your carry-on luggage without worry.

Secret De Vie Ultimate Cellular Reviving Crème by Lancome ($225) is an intense cream that contains a special ingredient called Sucre Vital, which helps plant life thrive under the sea. Your skin will feel pampered and soft and will look smoother, firmer, and radiant. This stuff is pricey, but it's got quite a large cult following, and people who buy it say it's well worth the cost.

Hydra Complete Multi-Level Moisture Gel Creme by Estee Lauder ($34) is a mineral-rich creme with the texture of a gel. It is intended to quench thirsty skin and help insulate the skin from dehydration. While traveling, apply in the morning and the evening, and within a couple of days you should notice that skin feels smoother and plumper.

Nutrisource Ultra Comforting Rich Cream by Biotherm ($45) is a like giving your skin a tall drink of water. This hydrating cream instantly relives dry, patchy, and unbalanced skin. It contain pure oils of apricot, coriander, ceramide, macadamia and passionflower, which create a layer of protection on you skin against dehydration. Also, it smells really good too.
