Ah, airplane travel. It may be a wonder of modern technology but in a lot of ways it is the worst. Like, the dehydrated skin and jet lag and expensive airport type of worst.
But there are ways you can make it less miserable, and this post is a roundup of all the essentials you need on a flight.
Hate to mention it, but airplanes and airports are teeming with gross germs and bacteria. Add to that that you’re basically breathing other people’s recycled air for hours? Not ideal. Sanitize!
We love bringing along a light, foldable shawl or sarong. They’re so multi-purpose! Use itas a makeshift pillow, blanket, or back support, and easily add warmth when you feel cold.
You won’t catch us on a flight without our Papeete Sarong!
Airplanes are massively dehydrating. Because the air is constantly being filtered and re-used, it sucks moisture from your skin, contributing to that not-so-glamorous post-flight look you get when you land.
A nice moisturizer applied in the middle of the flight and again right before you land will help you look fresh as a daisy!
Nobody likes cold feet. Bring some footwear in case your toes get cold during the flight!
Organization is essential with travel, so we recommend getting some adorable pouches to corral your essentials. Get a clear quart sized one for your liquids, one for your chargers, and another for your makeup.
There you have it! Some items you need on your next long haul. Hopefully your jetlag isn’t too bad, but know that it’ll be worth it for the adventure of travel.
