Keep reading to find out my 11 in flight essentials!

My 11 In Flight Essentials

laneige lip sleeping mask

1. Lip Balm

While Carmex is always an inexpensive and trusted option, I’ve been loving my Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask a lot more. It lasts a lot longer and smells so yummy and makes my lips pillowy soft and full. I use the original berry flavor, but it also comes in Vanilla, Grapefruit, and Apple Lime.

2. Lotion

Because I have SUPER dry skin, I need to make sure to have lotion at all times, especially in flights. Did you know that in flight humidity is around 10-20%, while your skin is happiest at a humidity level around 40-70%? When your skin is extremely dry and dehydrated, it overcompensates by producing even more oil, causing you to look greasy while also feeling dry. Couple that with less blood flow due to higher altitude, and you’ve got a recipe for a skin disaster! My favorite lotion to carry along is a travel sized Laneige Essential Balancing Emulsion because it’s light, absorbs quickly, doesn’t feel greasy, ANDDDD I can use it on my face as well as my hands! Multi-use products are a win when traveling aren’t they?

Sudio Niva

3. Wireless Ear Buds

I used to travel with my iphone earbuds. You know, the ones that come with your phone! The wires definitely got annoying and tangled all the time, so I switched to wireless earbuds/earphones. I was using my Beats Solo Wireless for a while, but to be honest, after about an hour of wear they start hurting the sides of my head like no other! I was so happy when I discovered the Sudio Niva Wireless Earbuds! They are so comfy, have decent sound quality, and also come with a carrying case that also charges the earbuds when they’re not in use. You can find these here and use my code “AVECNOU” for 15% off on www.Sudio.com .

blink eye drops

4. Eye Drops

I think this is helpful for anyone and everyone, but especially if you wear contacts like I do! The arid, low humidity cabin environment not only dries out your skin, but also your eyes…..really all your mucus membranes will dry out and become sore after several hours of flying. Having worked in the ophthalmology field for several years, I’m literally an eye drop pro! My biggest recommendation is to NOT USE ANY EYEDROPS THAT ARE FOR REDNESS!!! I can’t say that enough and literally tell everyone I know because not only do they dry your eyes out more, they actually make redness worse over time! Instead, use a lubricant eye drop or artificial tear. My favorite brands are Blink and Refresh, but I’ve also used store brands and they’re pretty much all the same more or less.

best books 2019

5. Reading Material

This is pretty self explanatory. Unless you want to pay for in flight wifi, a book or magazine is a must, especially on longer flights. (Should I do another post about my must read books?)

smartwater flying essential

6. Water Bottle

After going through security check, whether it’s a short or long flight, I ALWAYS buy a water bottle at one of the convenience stores or news stands. I prefer Smartwater because of the large, yet thin bottle, but really any brand will work. Just pick your fave!

Bonus In Flight Essentials

Especially on longer international flights, I have a few bonus essentials that help me relax and enjoy my flight a little more.

Carry On Cocktail Kit

1. Custom Cocktail Kit

I’m notorious for being EXTREMELY picky with cocktails and alcohol. I’ve never been one for ultra sweet concoctions, nor do I enjoy sugary soda in my drinks. Even though the in flight cocktail/drink list is usually lacking, I’ve found that bringing along my own cocktail kit is the best way to to enjoy a little sip sip as we takeoff. I’ve definitely read travel tips to bring your own liquor, you know, the ones that come in those cute little bottles. I can’t be bothered to do so because that’s just one more thing for me to pack and I’m ALL ABOUT CONVENIENCE! Instead, what I DO bring along is my mini bottle of orange bitters in my purse (YES IT FITS!), so that I can add a couple dashes to my bourbon on the rocks. Et Voilà–my simplified and preferred version of an Old Fashioned (if you’re not an old fashioned type of person, I found some great tips for making in flight cocktails here)! There’s tons of mini cocktail kits available online, or you can just make your own like I *kinda* did! And don’t even worry about the alcohol making you even more dehydrated since you bought that full sized water bottle before boarding right? 😉

Farmacy Sheet Masks

2. Sheet Masks

This is something that I haven’t personally tried yet because I haven’t been on a flight over an hour in a LONG time, but it’s something I am definitely going to do on my next long flight. I mean, are you really surprised that I’m suggesting you to sheet mask in flight? After all, you guys KNOW I’m a skincare aficionado! The best thing about sheet masks is that they’e small and easy to pack and use. You put them on and after about 20 minutes, you just remove and pat the remaining essence into your skin. No need for rinsing off! WIN! Don’t even bother caring if your in flight neighbor shoots you weird glances, they’re probably just jealous they won’t have glowing skin upon landing like you will 🙂

Laneige Sleeping Mask

3. Sleeping Mask

This isn’t even what you think it is. I’m not talking about those cute Holly Golightly-esque sleeping masks to shield your eyes from light while you sleep (though if that’s what you want, make sure you find a silk sleeping mask like this, so it doesn’t pull on your delicate skin and cause wrinkles). I’m still talking skincare! Surprise surprise! Especially for those of you who just feel awkward with a sheet mask on your face or don’t want to scare your seat mate, sleeping masks are your soluion! I’ve been using the Laneige Sleeping Mask for years now, and love how plump and dewy it makes my skin when I wake up. While it does require rinsing at some point, it IS a sleeping mask, so it’s meant to stay on your skin for….let’s just say 8 hours :). You can do longer or shorter, but bottom line is that it’s a mask that can stay on your skin and you can just wait until you arrive to your hotel to rinse off in the comfort of your own room.

So there you have it, my 11 in flight essentials and a few bonus essentials that will surely make your next flight more relaxing and comfortable so you can arrive at your destination ready to go!
