It’s summer travel season and that means you need to stock up on your carry-on essentials. Whether you’re traveling with a carry-on only or you plan to bring a checked bag, it’s important to have everything you could need in your carry-on. Not only does your carry-on get you through the flight, but luggage often gets lost or delayed and you don’t want to be without the things you need while you’re waiting. Here’s a list of the 10 things you should have in your carry-on bag for your next trip.
P.S. Don’t forget to make sure all your liquids follow the airline rules:
You don’t want to get stuck somewhere without your sunscreen. Depending on where you’re traveling, sunscreen may be hard to find, expensive or you might not find the brand you want. You can probably find some form of body sunscreen, or use clothing to cover up, but your facial sunscreen is a must-carry.
Another thing you don’t want to be stuck without is your medication. You may not be able to get new medication for a while so make sure you have anything you might need safely in your carry-on bag.
This one might not be essential but it sure will help you feel more put together. Anti-frizz sheets can help to tame your hair during and after a long plane ride. If you plan to sleep on the plane, you need these. Featured in the Summer Deluxe H2BAR Box.
4. Brow Gel
Another surefire way to feel put together? Brow gel. Chances are your makeup bag with all your essentials is tucked away in your checked bag. Without access to your makeup, you might feel a little disheveled, especially if you end up with a delayed or lost bag. Swipe on some Finally Have Brows brow gel and you’ll feel instantly more put together.
5. Lip Balm
Lip balm is a must for plane rides. There’s something about all that recycled cabin air that just leaves you feeling dry and crusty. Pop your favorite lip balm in your bag and you’re all set.
If you have bad eyesight, you know you don’t want to be stuck somewhere without your visual aids. Contacts and/or glasses are something you need, so keep them tucked in your bag even if you’re wearing another option at the time.
7. Eye Mask
To truly relax on a plane, you’ve got to have an eye mask. It blocks out the light and actually lets you catch some shut-eye.
If sleeping on the plane isn’t for you, make sure you have headphones. You’re going to need a way to stay entertained so download some music, a movie, a podcast, or an audiobook and relax.
9. Makeup Wipes
There’s something about the way your skin feels while you’re on a plane that just doesn’t sit right. If you’re on a long flight, you can use your makeup wipes to take your makeup off when you’re ready to sleep, and on shorter flights, you can use them to refresh your skin.
10. Body Wipes
Don’t take your whole deodorant stick on the plane with you. Instead, save space with some antiperspirant wipes. They will help you to feel and smell clean all flight long.
Rock it like a Redhead!
