Must Have Carry On Travel Essentials

Many of you have been asking how do I look after my skin on flights and what are the most essential items to take with you in the cabin? Through my years of travelling around the world I have developed my own essential list of items that I cannot board a flight without.

Carry On Travel Pack


After years of long-haul flights, looking after my skin, wellbeing and comfort have become extremely important to me. Inside my carry-on bag you will always find the following essential items:

Miscellaneous Essentials

  • Flight socks

  • Loose black t-shirt and leggings - Black hides those tell tell inflight spillage's

  • Tooth brush & tooth paste

  • Ear plugs - Mack's are my favourite as I find them extremely soft and comfortable

  • Contoured eye mask - One of the best purchases I've ever made. No more squashed eyelashes!

  • Neck pillow

  • Hand sanitiser

  • Simple face wipes

  • Tissues

  • Hairbands

  • Sunglasses

  • Cap - For taming the mane post-flight

  • Scarf - Some internal flights can get really chilly!

  • Flip flops - Having these make a quick trip to the bathroom much easier than trying to shove my swollen feet back into my trainers!


Medical Kit  

My medical kit is essential for every trip, long or short! I know I might be stating the obvious but you would be surprised how often I used to travel without one until the unfortunate happened and I was hit with a hefty bill just to buy some simple medication. Below is just an example of what I pack but please seek medical advice from your GP whenever travelling abroad.


  • Swimeaze - (Scuba Diver Essential)

  • Ear Calm Spray - (Scuba Diver Essential)

  • Congestion Relief Tablets - (Scuba Diver Essential)

  • Pain relief tablets

  • Allergy relief tablets

  • Sting/bite cream

  • Reenie

  • Berocca/Vitamin C

  • Constipation relief

  • Imodium - I will never travel without this again! I got overconfident on my last trip and did not bother to pack any, as I have never needed to use them in all my years of travelling, however, that was a huge mistake as I got hit, hit BAD!

  • Dioralyte

  • Plasters

  • Tweezers

  • Nail file and clippers

The items mentioned in this post are my personal favourites and not part of paid promotion. I am not a medical expert and this content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, therefore please always speak to your GP before travelling.
