BODY | RECOUPING FROM TRAVEL
THE FIRST THING I TRY TO DO ONCE I ARRIVE AND AFTER TRAVELING, IS GET MY BODY MOVING. EVEN IF IT'S JUST GOING FOR A QUICK WALK, I TRY TO GET MY CIRCULATION FLOWING AGAIN, AFTER SITTING ON A PLANE FOR SO LONG. I'VE ALSO BEEN A FAN OF INFRARED SAUNAS FOR MANY YEARS. THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC, WHEN I COULDN'T GO TO ONE, I INVESTED IN A HIGHERDOSE INFRARED MAT THAT I CAN USE AT HOME. INFRARED MATS ARE GREAT FOR HELPING RECIRCULATE BLOOD IN THE BODY, EASE ACHES AND PAINS, AND RELAX AND BOOST ENERGY---ALL AT ONCE. I LOVE USING MINE ONCE I GET HOME AFTER TRAVELING. REPLENISHING HYDRATION IS ALSO SUPER IMPORTANT BOTH DURING AND AFTER TRAVEL, SO I MAKE SURE TO BUY LARGE BOTTLES OF WATER WHEN I GET TO THE AIRPORT, AND DRINK AS MUCH WATER AS I CAN AFTER I LAND.
BEAUTY | HYDRATING DURING TRAVEL
IF YOU'VE FOLLOWED ALONG ON MY INSTAGRAM STORIES OR TRAVELED WITH ME BEFORE, YOU'LL KNOW I'M PRETTY OBSESSIVE ABOUT WHAT I BRING WITH ME ON MY FLIGHT WHEN IT COMES TO TAKING CARE OF MY HEALTH WHILE TRAVELING. SINCE HAVING A BABY, THOUGH, I'VE HAD TO CUT DOWN ON WHAT I BRING ON BOARD, SINCE MOST OF WHAT I PACK NOW IS FOR BABY. BUT I STILL MAKE SURE TO BRING A FEW ESSENTIALS ALONG WITH ME, TO HELP GIVE MY BODY WHAT IT NEEDS WHILE TRAVELING. I ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO BRING SOME TYPE OF HYDRATING SPRAY FOR MY FACE. SOME OF MY FAVORITES ARE AVÈNE'S THERMAL SPRING WATER, TATCHA'S LUMINOUS DEWY SKIN MIST, AND CAUDALIE'S GRAPE WATER MOISTURIZING FACE MIST. AIRPLANE AIR CAN BE INCREDIBLY DEHYDRATING TO THE BODY, SO GIVING YOUR SKIN EXTRA MOISTURE CAN BE VERY HELPFUL THROUGHOUT THE FLIGHT. I ALSO ALWAYS BRING MY NURSE JAMIE FACE ROLLER AND 111SKIN EYE PATCHES TO HELP WITH PUFFINESS THAT CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY DEHYDRATION. PACKING THE RIGHT SNACKS IS KEY AS WELL. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO EAT THE FOOD ONBOARD OR IF THEY'RE NOT PROVIDING ANYTHING, BRINGING SOMETHING YOU KNOW WILL BE GOOD FOR YOU IS ALWAYS HELPFUL. I ALSO LOVE TRAVELING WITH EITHER LIQUID I.V. HYDRATION PACKETS OR A GREEN PACKET TO KNOW I'M GETTING SOME GOOD NUTRIENTS EASILY WHILE FLYING.
BABY | IN-FLIGHT TRAVEL ESSENTIALS
THIS MONTH WE'LL BE TRAVELING WITH OUR SON FOR THE FIRST TIME. I REACHED OUT TO SO MANY FRIENDS TO ASK FOR ADVICE ON HOW TO MAKE THE FLIGHT GO SMOOTHLY FOR ALL OF US. EVERYONE SAID TO PACK AS MANY SNACKS AS POSSIBLE. PEHR MAKES A GREAT TRAVEL BAG FOR BABIES. I'LL MAKE SURE TO STOCK IT WITH AS MANY OF HIS HEALTHY SNACKS AS I CAN! I WAS ALSO TOLD TO BRING HIS FAVORITE LITTLE TOY FOR COMFORT, AND A BOOK THAT HE LOVES. FOR THE FLIGHT, I'LL ALSO FILL HIS BAG WITH SOME OF OUR FAVORITE EVERYDAY BRANDS LIKE HELLO BELLO FOR HAND SANITIZING AND BABYGANICS SANITIZING WIPES. NOTE: THIS A TWO-PART POST! I'LL BE LETTING EVERYONE KNOW HOW IT WENT, AND WILL REPORT BACK ON WHAT WORKED BEST. WISH US LUCK!
