Kim Kardashian’s unusual in-flight skin treatment

Her skin care routine has reached new heights, literally

We’d like to think we’re pretty savvy when it comes to taking care of our skin while on a plane. Our typical routine generally includes cleansing, misting a hydrating toner, applying a serum and slapping on an ultra-hydrating overnight mask before sitting back to watch a movie marathon. It turns out however, that while we might think our in-flight skin care practice is above average, it is (unsurprisingly) nothing compared to Kim Kardashian’s.

Kim took to her Snapchat recently to share her luxurious in-flight skin care routine, which involved travelling with her own cosmetic dermatologist, Simon Ourian who performed laser treatments on the 36-year-old’s skin while on board.

In the videos Kim joked, “most people just think I have good genes. So I want to introduce you to my good genes…who I travel with, to Dubai, Dr. Ourian.” In the snaps that follow, Kim is seen sporting a large pair of laser glasses, which are an essential for protecting her eyes during the laser treatments.

While we don’t know which specific treatment Kim received at high altitude on this occasion, there’s a good chance in-flight laser treatments such as this are common practice for the Kardashian sister. Ah, the lifestyles of the rich and famous!

If (like us) skin care treatments at 39,000 feet aren’t a reality for you, check out five surprisingly simple ways to achieve clearer skin.
