I have enjoyed the Miami sun and now I’m back in Finland and enjoying the heat from our fireplace. Of course the jet lag had me for the first week so that’s why I haven’t been posting but since all this travel has been going on –> I thought I’d share my vegan beauty travel essentials!
I’m not one of those crazy beauty gurus that do that full on make-up and beauty routine but I still have some essentials that I do take with me on a long-haul flight.
So here are my 8 vegan beauty travel essentials for a long-haul flight in no particular order:
1. Hand sanitizer
This is a must. If nothing else makes to the plane, this does. Planes are not the most hygienic places so having a hand sanitizer is an essential. Don’t wash your hands in the planes toilet; the water isn’t the purest. You can also use this sanitizer and tissues to wipe out your table and armrests.
2. Rosewater spray / face spray
Imagine that you have been sitting on a plane for 6 hours and the end is nowhere near. It’s starting to get too hot or too cold and very uncomfortable. Here you pull out your rosewater spray and spray that onto your (preferably clean) face and feel the freshness. Sounds like a plan? Yes, it does.
3. Argan oil
Occasionally my skin gets very dry while flying. So I want to nourish it with the best of the best: argan oil. It easy to carry and mine it has the pipet that makes it easy to apply. The benefit of having argan oil versus a face cream is that you can use it for your nails or neck or any other part of your skin that feels dry.
The fresh feeling when you wipe your face clean on a plane! I prefer something that doesn’t have much alcohol in it ’cause alcohol tends to dry out my skin even though I would put argan oil right after. Also the travel size towelettes that have like 5-10 pieces are the best so you don’t have to carry a big package with you.
5. Peppermint essential oil
Maybe not for everyone but after having brought this little buddy with me on the flight to Helsinki to Miami, I will add this to my essential list no doubt. Hence the word “essential oil”:D Long-haul flights can get very stuffy and I tend to manage to pull sort of a headache from all of that traveling. Sniff on peppermint essential oil helps with the headache and relaxes. After all every little thing that can freshen up the travel is a must.
6. Toothbrush and toothpaste
After landing it’s time to rush to the bathroom and brush our teeth. I like this bamboo cole brush with Urtekrams fluor mint toothpaste. Nothing better than getting a fresh breath after a long flight.
7. Hand cream
Every time I set foot on a plane, all the moisture from my hands disappear. So hand cream is crucial for me. I like to have something with a fresh smell like aloe vera and something that absorbs quickly. I’ve been using Urtekrams Aloe Vera Hand Cream lately and I highly recommend that one!
This is no brainer as well. But I usually apply deodorant after landing. Feel like after a long flight brushing your teeth and doing a small underarm shower in the bathroom and then getting that deodorant gets me going. Don’t like to use any perfume. It can easily get stuffy and really annoying ’cause even though it may smell nice you don’t necessarily get that fresh feeling.
So those were all my beauty essentials for a long-haul flight! I hope you found some inspiration for your travels and leave me a comment your favorite beauty product that you always take with you! I would love to hear your essentials as well 🙂
