Meghan Markle's glowing skin is pretty much famous in itself nowadays.

The former Suits actress (36) is famously healthy, embracing an organic diet and daily yoga sessions and like iconic beauties before her, she swears by the power of hydration in keeping her glowing.

But she has one rather unorthodox trick up her sleeve which she swears by - hand santiser.

"I'm no germophobe, but when I get on a plane I always use some quick hand wipes or a travel sanitiser spray to wipe it all down: that includes the little TV, the service tray, and all the buttons around your seat," she said in a newly resurfaced blog post from The Tig back in 2016. 

"Sure, the person next to you may give you a side eye, but at the end of the flight, you'll be the one whistling Dixie with nary a sniffle."

The days of Markle getting funny looks from fellow passengers are likely over as she will be flying nearly exclusively private thanks to her royal connections, but since she pointed it out, we're wondering why we never thought of it.

As for that luminous skin, she says, "Always travel with a high strain probiotic, and hydrate like you're dying of thirst – because even if you're not, for your body – the thirst is real."
