In-Flight Beauty Essentials Every Girl Needs To Pack

Ah, summertime! The season of vacations and sunny weather. If you're lucky enough to be traveling this season, don't forget to pack your beauty essentials. Real babes know that a little extra effort goes a long way when you're trying to look good at 30,000 feet!

There's nothing worse than being stuck on a long flight with nothing to do but sit and wait. And if you're not prepared, you'll be stuck feeling dull and unkempt for the duration of the trip.

So whether you're jetting off to a tropical paradise or taking a winter getaway, it's important to pack your beauty essentials. After all, you want to look your best when you arrive at your destination!

Here’s the list of in-flight beauty essentials you need to check on your list!

1. A good moisturizer

The dry air on an airplane can really do a number on your skin. Combat dryness and keep your skin looking hydrated by packing a good face cream or lotion. Apply it before takeoff and throughout the flight to keep your skin feeling smooth and supple.

2. A lip balm or gloss

An airplane's dry, recycled air can quickly sap moisture from your lips, leaving them feeling parched and irritated. A good lip balm will help to keep your lips hydrated and looking their best. It can also help to protect your lips from the sun and wind when you land. 

3. An eye cream

Eye cream is essential for maintaining youthful, radiant skin, and it's especially important when traveling. The dry, recycled air during your flight can cause the delicate skin around your eyes to become irritated and inflamed, but a good eye cream will help to soothe and protect your skin. In addition, eye cream can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so you'll look refreshed and well-rested even after a long flight!

4. A face mist

Anyone who's ever stepped off a long flight knows the feeling of dry, tight skin. It's not a good look, and it can be uncomfortable. That's why any savvy traveler will tell you that a face mist is an essential part of your in-flight skincare routine. A few spritzes of this refreshing spray can help rehydrate and perk up your skin. Not to mention, it feels amazing after being crammed into a tiny seat for hours on end!

5. A hair mask

Real babes always take care of their hair, even when they're on the go. That's why it's important to bring a hair mask with you when you travel. The dry air on airplanes can wreak havoc on your hair, leaving it dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. A good hair mask can help to hydrate and nourish your hair, keeping it healthy and happy even when you're far from home.

6. A travel-sized perfume

A little perfume can go a long way in making you feel refreshed during a long flight. Not only will it help to keep you smelling fresh and erase any lingering airplane smells, but it can also be a great way to relax and refresh yourself after a long flight. Simply spritz some on your pulse points before landing, and you'll feel like a new woman!

7. Makeup wipes

There's nothing worse than getting off a long flight and realizing that your makeup has melted into an unattractive mess. That's why it's important to always travel with makeup wipes. Makeup wipes are great for quickly cleaning up your face after a long day of travel. They're also perfect for refreshing your makeup during a long flight. And, if you're traveling to a destination with different climates, they can be a lifesaver for dealing with sudden changes in temperature and humidity.

8. A travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste

Traveling can be tough on your teeth, from the dehydration that comes with being at high altitudes to the sugary snacks and drinks that are so easy to indulge in when you're on the go. A good toothbrush and toothpaste can help to keep your pearly whites shining, no matter how many time zones you cross. Plus, brushing your teeth after a meal is a great way to freshen your breath and ensure you're ready for whatever comes your way during your travels!

9. A small mirror

By simply packing a small mirror in your carry-on, you can touch up your makeup and give yourself a little refresher during the flight. A mirror also comes in handy for checking your teeth after eating or drinking or ensuring that your hair hasn't gone completely haywire. So next time you're packing for a trip, don't forget to throw a mirror into your bag. 

10. Easy-to-carry travel bag

An easy-to-carry travel bag is a must for packing your in-flight beauty essentials. You never know when you might need to touch up your makeup, so it's always a good idea to have a small bag compact enough to fit in your carry-on!
