Sit back, relax, and enjoy these carry-on cures for your next long-haul travel leg!
Who else dreads a long flight? It’s one thing to fly coast to coast, but crossing an ocean is another beast. This past weekend, I took to the skies for a 16-hour direct journey from Los Angeles to the United Arab Emirates, and I’m grateful to have some high-elevation essentials in my flight time survival kit. Here are a few of my favorite products that helped me look and feel my best at 35,000 feet.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir - Caudalie is one of my favorite skincare brands, so no surprise I love their Beauty Elixir. It’s great for combating a dull complexion and brightening skin, which is essential for a refresh after a long flight. Plus, the scent is heavenly!
Chanel Body Excellence Nourishing and Rejuvenating Hand Cream - This Chanel hand cream is so worth the splurge. From its decadent velvety texture to its multi-tasking properties, this revitalizing hand cream is no match for stale plane air.
Colgate Wisp Disposable Toothbrush - If you don’t love bringing your toothbrush in your carry-on, these clever disposable toothbrushes are super handy and great for a quick mouth cleanse. You don’t even need water!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy - We all know the plane air can be dreadfully drying, so I like to keep a powerful lip product within reach. This one keeps my lips feeling soft and smooth, and most importantly hydrated. It has a semi-matte, non-slip finish, so it’s great for layering under lipstick, too.
SK-II Facial Treatment Masks - I swear by these sheet masks! Sure, you may get some suspicious stares from your seatmates when you slap this on, but the mask does wonders to revive plane-plagued skin irritated by in-flight conditions. Wearing this for just a few minutes will ensure you have that vacation glow no matter what.
Slip Silk Eye Mask - Sleep is a natural way for the body to repair and regenerate cells; but, getting shut-eye while high in the sky can be challenging. So, having a good blackout eye mask, like this one from Silk, is “eye-ssential.” I like that this one uses natural, pure mulberry silk and is designed to reduce friction against the skin.
The Elder Statesman Super Blanket Cashmere Scarf - There’s really nothing worse than being cold on a plane, which is why I’m enamored with this Elder Statesman blanket scarf. Super soft, oversized and totally cozy, this versatile and luxurious piece just invites you to cocoon in your seat and find a good movie.
