When Fodor’s Travel asked celebrities to share their travel secrets, Cambridge native Mindy Kaling admitted to a skin care tip in the sky that may result in some double takes from her travel mates.

“I learned this trick of putting Aquaphor all over my face in a thick layer because it keeps my skin moisturized when I’m going on these long dehydrating flights,” said Kaling in the article “Travel Secrets from Mindy Kaling, Lin Manuel Miranda, and 6 Other Celebs.”  “It looks horrible, though. Everyone thinks I have a disease, but it’s great.”

As fall approaches, the actress’s schedule shows no signs of slowing down. She is currently working on a movie with onetime Newton resident Priyanka Chopra, and she’s writing a collection of essays due to be released next summer. The final episode of the miniseries Four Weddings and a Funeral, which she co-created, debuted on Hulu last week.
