What do you have in your carry-on bag?
Here are a few essentials when traveling by plane, where the air is dry, you don’t know what snacks you’ll have, and you have no idea if that crying baby is going to sit right behind you.
A healthy snack, like almonds, always come in handy and don’t take up much room.
Hydrating moisturizer for your skin keeps hands from feeling dried out and itchy.
Ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones…because you just never know.
Saline nasal drops or spray…especially if you want to keep from drying out your nose.
Bottled water. You can always bring an empty bottle through security and fill it at a fountain before you board.
