The more I travel long haul, the better I get at packing for it! I’ve just come back from Thailand which was a 13 hour flight and I took with me, most of the things I wanted to have on hand for optimum comfort during the flight, but I did forget something! So I wanted to share my beauty travel essentials so you can make sure that you have everything you need to feel comfortable and help your skin during the dehydrating expedition that is a long haul flight!
Firstly – what I took. This is getting harder than it ever used to be when I was a teenager and used to read the checklists in my teen magazines on what to pack in your hand luggage! Firstly, as a teen, my skin was already dewey and hydrated and I didn’t really need much heavy duty care. But secondly because these days there are limits on the amounts of liquids you can take through airport security, your packing has to be savvier than ever before!
My must haves are as follows:
These are all less than the 100ml airport security limit and they all fit easily into a small plastic zip lock bag for security scanning.
For long haul I also take the following:
So that is my list. I try to travel as light as possible but these are the must haves.
What do you take with you on long haul flights? Let me know in the comments.
