Hand Luggage Essentials

Tuesday, 1 August 2017


It's that time of year where everyone is jetting off for some warmer weather elsewhere and panicking over what to pack and what not to bother taking away. There are a few essentials that I always take in my hand luggage, no matter how long the flight is, you always need those few necessities to help get you through it.

1./Lip Balm
I often suffer with dry lips and particularly when flying as the atmosphere is so drying. This is a must for me because I literally couldn't last the flight without it, I'm constantly applying lip balm, just to nurse my lips through the flight! My favourite is my trustee Nuxe Reve de Miel, it goes everywhere with me!

2./Moisturiser
Following on from the lip balm, I always like to take a moisturiser for my face as I can find that sometimes my skin suffers when I'm flying. I typically just take a small moisturiser from The Body Shop as they're travel friendly and I know they'll help hydrate my skin.

3./Hand cream
I always carry handream with me and so flying is no different, I hate having dry hands so it goes everywhere with me. Again, I typically use one from The Body Shop as I love the scents and they leave my hands feeling so silky soft.

4./Wipes
This is less of a necessity for me and I tend to only take wipes on long haul flights to help refresh my skin. When I have a long flight, I don't like to wear a lot of make up, so often I will take wipes to remove any make up I'm wearing during the flight and to help hydrate my skin.

5./Eye gel 
Similarly, I only take an eye gel for long haul flights as this is when I feel I need it the most. I like to apply an eye gel just before I land to help refresh my eyes and to make me feel more awake! Often I can feel really groggy after a long haul flight and this always shows on my eyes, so an eye gel is vital for making me look more human!

6./Headphones
I barely take any journey without my headphones, I love listening to music / podcasts and so flying is no different. Whilst I tend to use earphones on a day to day basis, I find headphones, such as my ones from Sony, so much more comfortable for flying as they don't hurt my ears as much.

7./Book
I love reading and flying is the perfect time for me to catch up on my book. I find it so relaxing and it's such a good way to pass the time, especially if there's no on board entertainment!

8./Eye mask
I often fall asleep with an eye mask on. I find it really hard to sleep if there's light and this is particularly problematic when I'm flying. Therefore, I often choose to wear an eye mask, to help block out any light and then I'm much more likely to be able to sleep.

9./Hand gel
Anyone that knows me, knows much I love my antibacterial hand gel, it never leaves my side! There are often so many germs on planes, so I always like to have this on me to ensure my hands are clean and to refresh them if they feel a bit grubby from flying.

10./Water
As I mentioned earlier, I find the atmosphere so drying on planes and it makes me so thirsty as well. I know airplanes can give you water and sell other drinks, but I much prefer just buying my own large water bottle and then I can have a drink whenever I want.

So these are my essentials for why I'm flying. What do you always have on you when you're flying? I'd love to know!
