The truth is it’s been years since of flown anywhere so I don’t want to come off as a globe-trotting blogger, because I’m actually the opposite. A homebody, working professional and mother of one, sweat pants wearing, top knot enthusiast…you get the picture. Back in the day I use to take the time to sprawl out, listen to music and pamper my skin. This flight is different because not only am I traveling with 18 family members I’m also traveling with a one year old. So lades (and gents) here are my in-flight must haves no faff, no pointlessness, no stupidity just easy to use essentials.
I’m sure we all know it by now, but I have a passion for face mists. I love that mists have toning, moisturizing and makeup setting qualities. However my favourite thing about all facial sprays is that they are instant and to me there is no better place for instant skincare then on a plane. Currently I am using (and loving) Pixi’s Milky Hydrating Mist and it works wonders when it comes to nourishing and repairing dry skin. The fact that this mist also soothes irritated sun kissed skin also makes it a handy beach bag item too.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say I am scarred of flying, but I would definitely consider myself as a nervous flyer. To combat my anxiety I always take some sort of aroma therapy oil with me. Typically I bring along lavender, however this trip I am bringing Saje’s Sleep Well Oil. This oil contains soothing chamomile, relaxing jasmine and balancing orange oil. It’s literally relaxation in a bottle. Just like the facial mist Saje’s Sleep Well can be applied in moment’s time.
Car trips, train trips, plane trips… one of my all-time favourite travel essentials is a big scarf. The best thing about a big scarf is it acts a blanket on cold plane rides, but once you reach your destination it can be used as a shawl on cold nights. Typically I travel with a large poncho, however this time around I am traveling with my Lululemon Vinyasa scarf. I love that this scarf can be worn many different ways, the handy snaps also allow this scarf to be transformed into a handy cardigan too.
In my opinion it takes a brave person that would want to travel in anything other than some sort of stretchy pants. I feel like this is common knowledge, but I thought I should put it out there; yoga pants, leggings, jogging pants are a MUST.
As we all know planes are extremely dry, and since traveling with a humidifier is frowned upon you'll notice a reoccurring hydration theme here. I am bringing two lip balms with me on this flight, one being Dior's hydrating, tinted lip balm Lip Glow and the other is the repairing and nourishing Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment.
90% of the time I have easy going, normal skin. However if you put dryness into the equation my skin transforms to sensitive and eczema prone in an instant. So whenever I travel I without fail always bring an SOS skincare mask. For this trip I am bringing Laneige's Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask. While I've never tired this mask it claims to sooth irritated skin while delivering a huge does of hydration and nourishment. This mask is clear so should I forget to take it off I won't have mud stuck to my face upon landing.
'Hi customs officer, no my face isn't normally purple... I just have a crying baby and dry skin' You get the picture.
Well people this is my last post before I leave. I wish you all an excellent week and I have a new skincare tips post coming out on the 13th I'm super excited to share with you. So ladies/gents until next time!
