Unless you’re seated at the pointy end, a long haul flight down the back of the plane can be pretty grim.
Middle row, tiny seat, dry skin, bored. Sound all too familiar? We’re here with these noteworthy tips to ensure your vacay begins the moment you set foot on the plane and you arrive at your destination in no time at all.
Preparation is key
The day before your flight, spend some time walking, stretching and hydrating your body. This will be the difference between getting off the plane feeling like you've been hit by a bus or bouncing straight into vacay mode. Also, make sure you’re well rested and get enough sleep in the lead up to your flight. Depriving yourself of sleep in order to snooze well on the plan will backfire. Trust us, babe.
Bring back up
Pass hours on end with a few episodes of your fave TV show. Our number one tip is to load up your ipad with shows on Netflix, that way your Younger binge can continue, guilt free.
Spa in the sky
Low humidity on airplanes means one thing for your skin, dehydration. Keep your skin supple, dewy and glowing in the sky with a mini day spa sesh. Gather together your skincare essentials and get ready for some serious self care. Pro tip: Don't even try and fly without a refreshing face mist. Our Hydrating Face and Body Mist is a skincare must-have in the sky. It not only provides a serious amount of hydration but also creates a protective barrier against airplane nasties. Hello fresh skin upon touch down.
Stretch it out
Sitting down for long periods of time in seats built for ants is certainly no fun. When flying high, it's more important than ever to get up and stretch at least once an hour. This will loosen your muscles and get the blood pumping, leaving your body feeling rejuvenated. We know that as soon as you’ve put a romcom on, it's not the easiest thing to separate yourself from Ryan Gosling. However, this will not only make all the difference when you touch down, but it will make your flight more comfortable. Double win.
