THE TOP 12 ACCESSORIES FOR A GREAT FLIGHT
What happens on a great flight exactly? If you haven’t experienced it yet, you can look forward to at least a few hours’ sleep, a sense of calm, wellness, comfort and land feeling refreshed.
Always take a generous sized scarf which can be used a stylish fashion accessory through the airport, a neck pillow when you sleep or a shawl when the flight has air-conditioning on like it’s the middle of summer. We love the Echo NY scarf – great proportion, without being too heavy.
Any traveler will tell you that an eye mask is crucial. It tunes out the neighbor next to you and sends a message to your body that it’s time to stop, relax and sleep. We love Perpetual shade silk eye mask with their quirky comments, makes it fun too.
Best hair tie you’ll find. I tend to get a blow out before a flight so that when you land it doesn’t end up looking like a bird’s nest. Invisibobble allows you to pin up your locks without leaving a dent. Genius!
A pair of durable socks are imperative. Make sure you swap your regular socks (or take an extra pair for when you land) and have the in-flight ankle socks that don’t cut off circulation and have a little grip when walking around.
- Face Cleansing Wipes
Perfect to apply as soon as you sit down on a long-haul flight, prior to putting on your silk eye-masks to ensure no makeup ends up on the mask or clogs your pores during the flight. A great idea is the individually wrapped Missha wipes which is handing when travelling as it’s not a liquid (so won’t need to be checked at security) and stay hydrated with individual packs.
- Lip Balm
It’s a given your lips will get chapped on a flight. Make sure you have super hydrating lip balm that doubles as a non-sticky gloss. Perfect on flight and for when you land too. We love Jack Black’s original lip balm.
- Hand Cream
Just a little tube is a great idea, because like your lips, your hand always feel dry on a plane. I really love the Swedish Dream which comes in a great travel size and I can’t get enough of the subtle perfume. For something a little larger and less fragrant, you can’t go past Kiehl’s hand cream.
- Face Mist
A must for when you land. A few quick sprays gently around your face you leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Also help give a little glow, which is great, especially if your meeting someone special at the gate. You can’t go past Herbivore Botanicals coconut face mist, perfect size for travel too.
Don’t forget a good pair of earphones you can plug in and meditate or listen to calming music. This always helps me drift off and tune out. They can look stylish too, we love the gold detail on Wicked earphones.
- USB charger
I’ve heard many a seasonal traveler talk about carrying a USB charger. There’s nothing more frustrating than landing and not being about to make plans or grab an Uber.
- Cord Taco
A cord taco takes care of all your annoying earphone/charger wires that inevitably get tangled at the bottom of your bag. The cords just wrap around the small ‘taco’ shaped leather and snaps it in place. Presto – organized in a flash. Try This is Ground Cord Taco.
- Good breath!
Clearly everyone wants good breath, but take a tooth brush and toothpaste can bit messy and cumbersome. Try Eat Whatever’s mints, swallow a gel cap followed by sucking on a mint – it comes as a pack and will take care of whatever you’ve decided to nosh on during the flight.
And that’s a wrap… Well almost
