I love traveling and seeing all there is in the world. But there’s one thing I dread… long flights. You’re in a metal box in the sky for hours; and most of the time, you’re cramped and stuck in a seat. Not to mention that, after a while, you start feeling tired, grimy, and gross. What’s a girl to do? Well, today I thought I would share 5 Long Haul Flight Essentials like a fresh outfit and Cetaphil® Daily Facial Cleanser to help you feel continuously fresh.
5 Long Haul Flight Essentials
You have to keep your mind occupied during a long flight. I always bring my phone, laptop, headphones, and portable chargers. I can listen to music, play solitaire, watch TV shows or listen to a podcast/e-book. You can also pack a book or magazine in your carry-on if you don’t like dealing with electronics.
One of my talents is I can fall asleep anywhere. Give me an eye mask, pillow, melatonin, and an under-eye mask, and I’ll curl in a ball and sleep. It also helps if you have to hit the ground running when you arrive at your destination. Plus, it helps the time go by faster.
Let’s face it, airline food isn’t the best. I usually get 2 bottles of water at the airport and pack healthy snacks like grapes, apples, baked chips, or granola bars—pretty much anything to keep my hunger under control. Don’t forget to drink a ton of water while you’re flying!
An Extra Outfit
I always pack an extra outfit, shoes, and underwear. The one time I didn’t, they lost my luggage and I had to go buy new clothes. I also tend to wear yoga pants, slides, and a t-shirt during a long flight to stay comfortable. So before I land, I change into a dress (or jeans and a tee) and sneakers so I look cute and put together for the day ahead of me.
