An interview with... British Airways Girls

Which routes do you fly for British Airways?
Samantha & Lisa: We both do the long haul routes to America, Middle East and Far East, but not Australia. It’s just too far away!

Do you get dry skin?
[In unison] Yes, REALLY dry skin.

How do you stay hydrated on long haul flights?
Samantha: Water water water! I try and drink 1.5 litres of water per flight and I usually add a splash of cranberry juice for flavor.

Lisa: I try and drink plenty of water on a long haul flight and avoid drinking coffee.

Do you have an in-flight beauty regime?
Samantha: I use a moisturising facial spritz and Vaseline for my lips, and retouch my make up.

Lisa: On a flight I always put on eye cream at least once, and apply eye drops and hand cream throughout the flight.

I really like the Dr. Lipp product. Its thick and smooth consistency glides effortlessly across the lip, but more importantly it lasts. I will be using this on flights from now on.

What do you think of Dr.Lipp?
Samantha: I love the packaging – very quirky and good use of colours. I opted for Dr. Lipp during my last flight and loved it! My lips were moisturised and well hydrated, I only needed to apply once or twice during the long flight. I noticed the product doesn’t have a taste or fragrance which I really liked. I was worried the product would be greasy but I was pleasantly surprised to discover it isn’t.

Lisa: I really like the Dr. Lipp product. Its thick and smooth consistency glides effortlessly across the lip, but more importantly it lasts. I will be using this on flights from now on.

Tell me a little about what you do when you’re not flying BA round the world?
Samantha: I run in the national cross country race with Jonathan Brownlee, the British Olympic triathlete. He runs in the men’s and I run in the women’s race. I get terribly dry skin but now I’m going to use Dr. Lipp on both my nipples and on my feet too, to prevent me from getting blisters in my next race!

Lisa: I look after five year old twins and go to the gym! It’s hard work, but a lot of fun.
