Staying fresh and beautiful in the confined space of a plane for several hours while traveling can be pretty difficult. It’s really easy for your hair, nails, and skin to look haggard! So what do you do to make sure you stay pretty on the plane? Well, there are a few products you should always pack with you onboard, that are easy to use, and certified to travel with!
1. Certified TSA Bottles
Remember the rule 3-1-1 when traveling with carry-on liquids: 3 oz liquids – 1 qt bag – 1 passenger. But this rule doesn’t have to confine your products to ones that are only available in travel sizes! Most drugstores or places like Target have bundles of empty TSA-approved bottles that you can fill with your favorite products to take with you on the plane!
Did you know that the humidity on a plane in flight is the same as the humidity in the Sahara Desert? Yuck! Keeping your skin hydrated while traveling is essential to preventing dry, cracked skin, and keeping a healthy glow. Bring some of your Calming Relief Soothing Moisturizer in one of your TSA-approved bottles (they even have containers that are like cute mini versions of it!) to keep your skin hydrated throughout the flight. Hint: you can use your moisturizer to keep your hands hydrated as well!
3. Makeup Wipes
Makeup wipes are lifesavers when you’re traveling on a plane. They clean and refresh, not to mention can be used to refresh other places on your body too! Use them to refresh throughout the flight, or just before you get ready to land, then continue with your moisturizer and makeup routine.
4. Hand Sanitizer
You may be wondering what this has to do with beauty, but hear me out. You may not notice it, but you touch your face and hair all the time, and there’s no worse place to do it than a plane filled with yucky bacteria everywhere. Make sure to sanitize your hands often while you’re traveling, especially before eating and applying moisturizer or makeup.
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT use the stale pillows they give you on the plane! Not only will they make ugly lines on your face, but they are loaded with bacteria! Bringing a form-fitting satin pillow like The Pillow, which cradles your neck and face with smooth, wrinkle-free material, will ensure some much needed beauty rest while traveling!
6. Vitamin Infused Lip Moisturizer
Don’t forget that your lips can get extremely dry while onboard too! Using a lip product that is moisturizing and infused with vitamins like Vibran-C Lip Tint SPF 15 will keep lips luciously drenched while adding subtle color to your pout.
BB Cream is a MUST when traveling, and especially on the plane! This multi-tasker nourishes, hydrates, protects, and luminizes your skin and can be used alone or as a primer before makeup! Make sure to get under your eyes to eliminate any darkness that may have deveolped during your trip.
Give yourself a reboot after traveling so long on the plane with a B12 Energy Shot! B12 is a natural energy boost that supports your metabolism, mood, brain and memory function. It’s also a great, natural alternative to caffeine, and doesn’t cause a ‘crash’! It also comes in a 1oz bottle so it’s perfect for on the plane and on the go!
Just like your skin needs a hydrating moisturizer on the outside, you need it on the inside too! Since your body becomed dehydrated on the plane, you need to be sure to replenish it with plenty of H2O throughout the journey. Drinking sugary drinks like soda or alcohol will dehydrate you even faster, so if you do drink them, be sure to drink water along with them.
Let’s be serious, sunglasses on a plane are life savers. Not only do they block out the annoying person in the seat next to you, but they block the painful sunrays, and tired eyes too. Not to mention, they make you look fabulous!
