10 Long-Haul Flight Essentials [Kezari Picks]

  • Water bottle: our first travel essential is to fight dehydration, which is very common on long-haul flights. We like reusable water bottles to refill at airports post-security and onboard. Plus, it reduces plastic waste from all the cups served on the flight. Go eco!
Double-insulated walls maintain the ideal temperature
  • Lip balm: Another flight essential… lip balm keeps your lips from chapping on the flight with lip balm. Plus it doubles as a moisturizing ointment for dry spots on your body. 
  • Facial moisturizer: something about airplane air just sucks all the moisture out of your skin. Moisturizer is perfect to apply after washing your face on board so it doesn’t dry up uncomfortably. 
  • Bluetooth earphones: earphones are essential when traveling, to make long waits past by faster with podcasts or audiobooks and to provide background music on long journeys. We love the convenience of Bluetooth earphones because it means one less set of wires getting tangled up in your travel bag. 
  • Toothbrush + toothpaste: there’s nothing like stepping off a plane with airplane breath. Keep a travel sized set handy to freshen up before meeting people at your destination. A clean freak’s (*raises hand*) travel essential.
  • Face wash: if you’re like me and have oily skin, then face wash is a must to keep personal hygiene up on long-haul flights. 
  • Witch hazel wipes: I’m a huge fan of witch hazel for reducing redness, wiping away airplane food crumbs and just freshening up when my face wash is too dry on a flight. 
  • Neck pillow: when your airplane seat doesn’t stretch all the way back, neck pillows come in clutch. They give your head a place to rest. Plus, it keeps you from accidentally sleeping on the shoulder of a fellow passenger.
This changed my flying sleep habits.
  • Eye mask: as someone who struggles to fall asleep easily, an eye mask is a must-have to shut out any light and cozy up. Airplanes don’t always dim the lights according to your sleep schedule, so a memory foam, eye socket eye mask is a must have.
No more funky sleep lines on your face
  • Protein bars: not only do budget airlines charge for food on-board, but many regular airlines are starting to charge for extra snacks. Plus, if airplane food isn’t always your cup of tea, protein bars keep you going until you land. Not to mention, having food to eat during your flight at the right time helps you fight jet lag and prepare your body for a new time zone. 
Guilty pleasure… the only protein bars that taste like dessert

5 Easy Steps Towards a Minimalist Wardrobe [Women’s Edition]

We live in an age of surplus, not minimalism. We have too much food, too many products, and too many distractions. The last thing we need -– too many clothes. First off, it makes it impossible to find your favorite dress before date night. Secondly, it makes laundry annoying. Lastly, it makes packing for a trip way harder when you have five variations of the same T-shirt to choose from. Plus, minimalism is timeless and the best fashion trend in our opinion.

To minimize the amount of clutter in your wardrobe, we’ve come up with a 5 part criteria to make your minimalist wardrobe.

Minimalism In 5 Steps:

  1. The 10 per 1 test: have I worn this item of clothing at least 10 times in the past year? If no, it doesn’t belong in your wardrobe.
  2. Do I have a “heavy” representation of a certain color or style? If I have over 7 days of summer dress wardrobe changes, I’m getting rid of the extras.
  3. Is this COMFORTABLE? If it’s scratchy, irritates your skin, cuts off circulation, feels like a corset, then what is it even doing there in the first place? If you even have to question its comfort, it’s sucking energy from you and needs to be banished from the closet.
  4. Would I pack this on a trip? PJs and your best suit aside, if it’s not something that makes you feel 110% and you love to show off, it’s never going to be used. Bye-bye.
  5. Is this part of the 10% of my wardrobe I wear 90% of the time? If it’s not, then it’s time to donate it.
This is you, very soon!

Wait, before you throw out all those extra clothes, try sending them to one of these three places.

3 New Homes For Your Clothes:

  1. Re-sell clothes at second-hand sites like Relovv and ThredUp.
  2. Donate to places such as Good Will or Salvation Army.
  3. Recycle!
