1. Hydration

Being on the plane for even a few hours will make you dehydrated. To prevent this, always pack a bottle of your favorite moisturizing cream to hydrate your skin. I personally cannot fly without Shu Uemura’s Facial Mist or Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Cream. Just don’t forget the 3-1-1 carry-on rule.

2. Personal earphones

Some airlines have begun charging a fee for personal earphones. Save a few bucks by taking your earphone or headphones with you. To block out any crying babies on your flight, try these Noise Cancelling Headphones by Sony.

3. Eye mask

If your flight companion’s reading light makes it difficult for you to fall asleep, invest in a cute eye mask, like these options from Fred Flare.

4. Neck pillow

Portable and comfortable, a neck pillow lets you sleep on the go without worries of neck pain. We like this plush, squishy and cute version.

5. Cardigan

Air conditioning on the plane can be a little too chilly, especially on a long flight. Always pack a light, oversized cardigan or jacket, like this one from Kensie, available at Nordstroms.
