Loaded with salt, sugar and preservatives, the inflight meal will not only give you love handles quicker than you can say ‘Cadbury’s’, but it’ll also keep you awake, by virtue of the fact that in-flight meals – on the whole – are near impossible for your body to digest.

Alcohol will dry out your skin (in addition to the dehydrating effects of all that nasty air conditioning) and though it might knock you out pretty fast, it'll ensure you have an interrupted night’s sleep. Instead, stock up on water an hour or so before you go to sleep and drink plenty upon waking.

The key to looking fresh at the end of a long flight is to keep your skin super-hydrated.

Sounds simple but the key to feeling fresh, and fooling your body into thinking that you’re actually ready for bed, is to follow the same routine as you would at home. Therefore, give your teeth a proper brush before you bed down and the moment you wake up. It’ll also help people believe that you’re half human by the time you make it to your breakfast meeting.
