How To Survive a Long Haul Flight

By September 6, 2017How To

The loungewear as RTW trend is your best friend.

The lines have blurred between sleepwear and ready-to-wear and it’s no longer a challenge to look chic and feel at-home in a chic set of PJs or a silk robe over leggings & a comfy tee. Our go-to? Lobo Rosa’s silky soft PJs. (email us at info@thebrandshop.co (not .com) to place your order!) Bonus that they can easily be worn as separates throughout the rest of your travels.

 

BYO pillow, blanket, toothbrush, and deodorant.

Our must-have list to stay comfortable for any long distance light. The pillow and blanket (we like to bring one that can double as an oversized wrap) will keep you comfortable – bonus points that you’ll be able to avoid the skeevy airline versions; and the toothbrush and deodorant will help you feel fresh even after a 5 hour nap.

 

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

The air in planes is extremely low humidity, which makes dehydration one of your biggest enemies in the sky. If your flight is longer than 3 hours, try to drink at least 8 oz of water every hour. And don’t forget your skin! On very long flights, we come armed with Evian Water Spray, face lotion, and KNC beauty lip masks.

 

Bring your own entertainment (and make sure it’s fully charged).

In-flight entertainment centers are notoriously unreliable. Download movies, podcasts, or books on your tablet as a reliable back-up before you leave. And make sure everything is charged up. Remember you’re in this for the long-haul and there’s nothing worse than losing power an hour into a 10 hour flight.
