I’m not a massively seasoned traveller, but I have travelled long haul a fair few times over the past three years, and it’s tiring on your body, exhausting and draining on your mind and a killer on your skin.
I never wear make up besides a light covering of the below items, this is not to say I don’t travel without make up, but I don’t apply it until the last hour of my flight.
Here is my list of my must have travel items (all of which I use on the ground too!).
Miracle Product: Lucas’ PawPaw Ointment.
The Australian version of 8 hour cream, outshines its high end rival. I picked this up in the airport when I was trying to spend a bunch of leftover money, and I wish I had stocked up. Eradicates all the horrendous skin ailments you might enounter whilst flying (it zapped my flying spots within HOURS).
Inflight moisturiser: FEEL GOOD FACTOR – Soap and Glory Translucent BB Cream.
This is my go to skin pick-me-up while I am on a plane. I apply a light layer to my entire face and neck every three hours, to make sure my skin does not dry out. As well as a moisturiser, the beauty of a BB cream means that when you’re ready to apply your make up, it’s already done half the priming job for you.
It’s not the best primer out there, but I love how soft it makes my skin feel, and erases all those obvious lines. Don’t travel without it!
Those are my two main staples, follow up posts to come with more items. What are your travel must haves? Let me know in the comments below!
