Long-haul flight means fabulous destinations – but you don’t want to arrive all-saggy right?
Ask Princess Aurora and she’ll swear that a good sleep is her key of maintaining her glow. But let’s admit – airplane, even the Business Class, isn’t the most comfortable place for a long, high-quality sleep. Then, how can we achieve an Instagrammable face when landing?
- Avoid Coffee
Duh, of course. Sounds simple but lots of caffeine-holic out there just can’t resist the airport’s coffee shop. The rule is, no caffeine 6 hours before takeoff.
Relax your minds, no earphone with blaring music, no action-packed movie, just prepare yourself to sleep as if it’s your own bedroom. Breathe slowly.
It’s okay to take magnesium or melatonin supplement. Magnesium will relax your muscles, melatonin prepare your body for a good sleep.
Neck pillow, eye-cover and blanket. Don’t forget to don in your most comfortable wear to make your body relaxed.
- Sleep Scent
The perfect aroma can bring your to a nice sleep, right away (and we’re definitely not talking about chloroform!). We swear by lavender aroma to bring you to a high-quality sleep. Bring it in the form of sachet, gel, or mist (as long as it suits the cabin rules).
“Don’t wake me to land, JUST LAND!” Homer Simpson once screamed it in an airplane during an episode. If you hate sudden wakeups, wear your seat-belts in front of your blanket.
If you’re comfortable with it, prepare a list of relaxing music instrument in your gadget (looping for one hour is fine). At least you won’t be disturbed by child’s screaming or other airplane hullaballoo.
