6 Items to Include in Your Travel Bag

December 27, 2015

Packing — let’s be real, it’s the biggest reason to delay that big trip.

What’s too much? Too little? What will I regret bringing? What’s an absolute necessity? What should I bring on the plane with me?

, contributor and co-founder of Tula, shared the six things she believes we must have in our travel bag for our next excursion:

6 Items to Include in Your Travel Bag

1. A fiber rich healthy snack. Long plane rides can slow down your digestive system leading to constipation – keeping an apple or pear in your carry on is a great way to keep up with your fiber. It also helps you avoid snacking on the mostly unhealthy high-calorie options offered on airlines, which we often eat more out of boredom than actual hunger.

2. A super-hydrating facial moisturizer. Temperatures and air circulation in airports and travel hubs can vary greatly, which can wreak havoc on your skin leaving it dry, dull and rough. Don’t leave your skincare routine back home and pack a skin-nourishing moisturizer to protect your skin against environmental damage so you can step off the plane looking as refreshed as when you got on.

3. Bottled water. You simply cannot get enough water on a plane – so bring your own. Dehydration not only robs you of energy but also makes your body less able to efficiently detoxify, which weakens your ability to fight infection. And speaking of dehydration – limit your alcohol and caffeine intake on the plane.

4. Saline nasal drops. Dry winter air and airplane cabins can dry out your nasal passages, making you more prone to bacterial infection, so pack a drug-free saline spray or nasal drops in your carry-on.
