Flight Essentials

It’s travel season!
Whether it’s a quick flight or a long-haul, you’ll want to board prepared.
The key to flying is comfort and having something by your side to entertain or help you pass the time.
Flying can also take a toll on your skin because the air in the plane is very dry. From essential beauty items, snacks to entertainment, we’ve rounded up our top must-haves list!



Pc: Bose

Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones is definitely worth the investment! These headphones offer a quiet and restful experience while you enjoy your music/playlist. You can turn on the noise cancelling feature to keep you from being distracted, or, with a touch of a button, turn off the feature to hear what’s around you. We find this feature perfect and convenient for flying, especially when the snacks and drinks are passed around!


Pc: Hydro Flask

Always stay hydrated! Our body and skin relies on water and good hydration to keep us going even when we are sitting for hours on a plane. Pack your own reusable water bottle to fill up once you’re past security because plastic bottles as we know aren’t good for our body and the environment! Visit Sport Chek, Below The Belt and Starbucks at Upper Canada to view a collection of reusable water bottles!


Pc: Made Good Foods

When you’re on a plane, sometimes you just want to sit back, watch a movie and have some snacks. Depending on the flight or airline, your snack may not be what you’re looking for! If you’re a foodie, you will want to pack or purchase a few snacks ahead of entering the airport as it tends to get costly. We love SQUISH gummies and granola bars sold in variety at Shoppers Drug Mart!


In-flight Entertainment

If you’re a frequent flyer or just not into the movies provided on the plane, a book can come in handy. It’s a different experience reading a book while staring out at the clear blue skies and clouds! Pick up a book from Cole’s and you’ll be glad you have it handy especially at moments when the entertainment system is not working.

Travelling can stress out your skin and leave your complexion looking dry and dull. Make sure to pack a sheet mask or two from Sephora, to add moisture back into the skin. The Dr. Jart+ Hydra Solution sheet mask offers soothing and calming ingredients for skin irritated by dehydration. It contains aquaxyl and xylitol to enhance moisture retention and prevent water loss once the sheet mask comes off.

Your lips need some love as well! It’s hard to find a long lasting moisturizing lip balm but we’ve done the search and found the perfect one for you! This Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm is compact and provides enough nourishment and protection. It is made from agave and rare Madagascan vanilla CO2 extract, formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates!


We hope this list was helpful – Visit Upper Canada for all your flight essentials. Safe travels!
