Travel tips for long flights

  2. Wear compression stockings
  3. Use electrolyte powder in your water
  4. Apply a mask to the face and lips.
  5. Opt for Bose Noise Canceling Headphones

In the clip, which has so far been viewed more than 5.2 million times, Lindsay quickly launched into her list of top tips.

Demonstrating with his own luggage, he began: ‘I like to call this the bag within a bag.

“I pack a duffel bag as a personal item and inside I keep a bag with everything I need easily accessible so you don’t have to keep digging through your bag every time you need something.”

Then he continued: ‘Yesyou are doing a long haul flight and you’re not wearing compression stockings, you’re doing it wrong.

“Personally I don’t like the aesthetic of ankles and that’s why I love compression socks.”

The enthusiastic traveler then shared another trick as she poured electrolyte powder into her water bottle.

‘I don’t enjoy urinating every five seconds on a long-haul flight. That’s why I always carry these electrolyte packs: they help me stay hydrated without having to drink a gallon of water and they also balance out the wine,” he joked.

But Lindsay didn’t stop there with her ideas and then took off her face and lip masks.

The content creator then continued: 'If you're doing a long-haul flight and you're not wearing compression stockings, you're doing it wrong.'

For the final trick, Lindsay explained, “If you travel a lot or have a coworker who bothers you, get the Bose noise-canceling headphones.” They will change your life.’
