Fight jet lag in the air by staying hydrated inside and out.

Drink at least 8 ounces of water for every hour you’re in the air—even if you don’t feel thirsty. If you wear contact lenses, clean them thoroughly before your flight, use eye drops in the air, and consider removing your lenses if you nap. In your carry-on pack a bottle of moisturizing lotion, lip balm, and a hydrating spray with essential oils (not just water) to spritz your face with occasionally. Just be sure all toiletries are TSA compliant.

    I think saline nasal spray is worthwhile, too. Keeping nasal passages moist protects them from germs which may be around, so one is less likely to pick up colds and flu from other passengers.
