There’s an art to traveling … and an even finer art in feeling and looking great while doing so. These tips and tricks will help make it possible.
What to pack :
Antibacterial wipes: Safeguard your health by killing germs, bacteria, viruses by wiping down the entire seat area.
Comfy socks & cashmere scarf: Apply cream to feet and wear a pair of cozy socks to stay both warm and receive a hydrating foot treatment all at once. Use your cashmere scarf to double as a blanket in flight to stay cozy. Cashmere is a luxury, but worth the splurge.
Fresh lemons: Bring a couple in your carry-on, squeezing fresh juice in your water during flight for extra cleansing and detoxing effects.
Superfoods to go: Bring greens on the road with portable super greens. They’re easily added to water or juice in-flight—also a great way to start the morning.
What to do :
Promote circulation. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes to promote circulation. This is especially important, given that you’re at a higher-risk for blood clots while flying and staying immobile for long periods of time.
Stretch & move. Keep your circulation optimal by performing simple stretches and practicing deep breathing. This is crucial for overall wellbeing, and also helps avoid aforementioned blood clots.
Eat right. Some say fasting is the antidote for jet lag. If that sounds a little extreme, try sticking to a diet of fruit, smoothies, and salads the day of travel.
Stay hydrated (inside & out). Water is essential while flying.
Post flight :
Move : Working up a sweat helps combat water retention, jump-starts metabolism, stimulates the lymphatic system and gets blood circulating. Go for a quick job, practice yoga, or pop into a steam room.
Enjoy : You are finally at destination! Enjoy and live the moment.
Hopefully these tips make your next travel experience a bit more comfortable, beautiful and all-around enjoyable!
