Let’s be honest – flying isn’t always fun.

We’ve all seen the Emirates commercials of Jennifer Aniston flying around the world and enjoying the “luxury amenities” of the economy class but flying is hardly ever that chic.

Airplanes can be stuffy, filled with crying babies and just dang uncomfortable. But despite the unpleasantries of air travel, it can be an enjoyable experience if you allow for it.  All you have to do is pack up the correct essentials (yes, they’ll pass TSA!), as listed in our 5 travel essentials below.

So whether you’re hopping on a flight from JFK to London or heading to Florida because you won our Summer Wellness Giveaway (don’t forget to enter), we guarantee you’ll have a peaceful flight with these essentials.

Safe travels!

1. Flight 001 Molded Eye Mask (Amazon.com, $18)


This isn’t just any eye mask.  There’s velcro closure so all light will be completely blocked out, and the eye area is raised which means extra comfort and no mascara smudging. (We know you were worried about that).

2. Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash, 1.7 Ounce (Amazon.com, $25.86) 


It’s no surprise planes are the leading playgrounds for germs.  But don’t you worry, because even if you’re not traveling during flu season, this rinse-free hand wash will protect you as if you are.

3. This Works No Wrinkled Tired Eyes (Amazon.com, $47.51)


Especially if you’re traveling in the early A.M., it’s easy to skip out on a full night’s rest.  But fortunately, one application of No Wrinkled Tired Eyes (either the night prior to flying or before you take a long flight snooze) will have people wondering what the heck you did to look that awake and refreshed coming off a plane.

4. Pratima Ratrani Rose Replenishing Mist (Pratimaskincare.com, $26) 

 lrg-ratrani-replenishing-mist_3This mist will be your savior on and off the plane.  Aside from cooling down any irritation and giving your skin a much-needed hydration boost, this mist can also act to freshen up and set in any makeup you have on.  Not to mention, it smells absolutely divine.

5. Bose Quiet Comfort 35 (Amazon.com, $349) 


These headphones may be more on the pricey side, but we’re sure you’ll have these for life.  The secret is the noise-rejecting dual-microphone system that cancels out any noise (from wind to voices) and enhances the quality of your music. Talk about a win-win for everyone.
