Jet setting to your next destination can easily be a breeze!
Most millennials love to travel. There’s so much to be said about meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. But before you even set off on your adventures, there’s a fair amount of legwork to be done. No, I’m not referring to researching your destinations or booking your accommodation (although, these are super important, too!). I’m talking about making the journey itself as pleasant as possible. Every girl’s essentials will vary according to need and personality, but the items below are sure to come in handy when you’re hitting the road.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve sat next to a parent with a crying child or an old lady who wouldn’t stop talking. A pair of headphones that can cancel out the surrounding sounds is a life-saver, so make sure you throw a pair in your hand luggage before you board any flight. Works great when you want to watch a movie and zone out, too!
Tip: Paper-thin walls at the hostel you’re staying at? No problem. Pop on your headphones, hit play on those instrumental songs you’ve been secretly collecting, and wind down.
Toothbrush And Toothpaste
Long-haul flights can leave you feeling icky and exhausted. So, it’s always a good idea to keep a toothbrush and toothpaste handy to keep you feeling fresh and clean in between your flights.
Tip: Travel-sized versions are compact and convenient to carry.
Charges And Adapters
There’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination and realising that you forgot to pack your phone charger, adapters and battery packs. These electronics are generally costly to purchase in the country you’re visiting, so save yourself the trouble and ensure you pack these necessities.
Tip: A universal adapter will be useful at the airport, too.
If you’re backpacking across Asia, really tight on space or rather paranoid about the towels you use in hotels (we’re totally not judging!), try one like this. It’s lightweight, dries really fast and folds into ridiculously tiny squares. They’re not as fluffy and comfy as regular towels, but they’re practical and are great for the frequent traveler.
Tip: Get the largest size possible, as it can double up as beach towel.
Our top picks are lipstick, chapstick, concealer and eyeliner. A bright lippie in your signature red hue will add instant colour and sophistication to any look. Chapstick will keep your mouth well and truly moisturised in air conditioning or cold climates. Concealer works great at covering up dark circles from jet lag, and mascara will open up your peepers making you look more awake.
Tip: Depending on the purpose of your visit (i.e business) and problem areas, you might want to add a few more items to your make-up bag, like foundation and primer.
Hair Removal In A Jiffy
Yes, I know you’re thinking, “Oh gosh, I’ll never forget my razor!”. But aside from the razor burns, and the constant need to keep shaving to achieve smooth skin, shaving blades are just not good for your skin. Over the last few years, the hair removal game has come a long way. Now, with Veet Hair Removal Cream available in many variants, you can choose what works best for your skin type, whether it’s normal, dry or sensitive. What’s great about a product like this is that you’ll be smoother for longer, you won’t spend a lot of time applying the cream (5 minutes tops!), you remain moisturised up to 24 hours, and you don’t have to deal with any razor cuts! All Veet products are dermatologically tested and you’ll stay fuzz-free for up to one week! So, what are you waiting for? Throw a tube in your bag!
Tip: For those on a short holiday, try Veet’s mini pack. It’s packaged in a 15g handy packet and contains sufficient product to remove hair on your bikini line or underarm hair.
Happy travelling, ladies!
