Remember what they say in the old Western films when they step into a tavern? ‘Two beers for two weary travelers please!’ Yes, weary. Long-distance trips can be many things but tiredness will always be the first, the second, and the third on the list. Even that we have faster and faster means to travel as the modern transportation evolves, you should always have some useful travel accessories ready back in your quiver.

Say long flights, let’s see what items could make it as one of the useful travel accessories for long flights.

Memory Foam Silk Cover Neck Pillow

Buried in busy daily work, constant anxiety, soaring pressure. You cannot always sit in the right sitting posture at work and pay little attention to relaxing at the right time. So the pain in the cervical spine becomes more and more intolerable.

And finally holiday comes, you’re off-duty, you’d like to travel to some beautiful place far far away, you wish that you could get a little serenity for your mind and undo some damage that your daily sitting-down work has done to your body. 

But guess what, boom! You’re on a plane, en route to that someplace far far away. And once again you are sitting down and will be that way for a long long time till the plane touches the ground. Serenity? Maybe. Relaxation for your body, no, don’t even think about it! You’re cooped up in a tin can with strangers, you’re sitting in a chair with no lumbar support or neck support whatsoever. By the time you get off, you will be in no mood or shape to carry on the journey, you just want to go home and lay your weary body down.

But don’t worry, because this is exactly the place where Memory Foam Silk Cover Neck Pillow shines! This silk neck pillow was born to bring pain relief and relaxation to our long trips as well as our everyday activities. No more aching neck & shoulders when you travel long-distance. It has been designed in such a way that it has just the right softness to provide the most comfortable support for your neck. Made of memory foam, the pillow fits snuggly under your chin and all the way to the back of your neck. And the pillow provides incredible neck support for any type of travel or for catching a quick power nap.

That means you can sleep to one side on the plane even if you’re in the aisle seat, without your head falling onto your neighbor. It also features real silk ties at the bottom of the silk cover, you can easily adjust the size which is suitable for different groups of people, like pregnant women, the elderly, and adults. 

Many neck pillows on the market are made with inferior chemical fibers in order to reduce costs. So their formaldehyde content exceeds the standard, with a strong pungent smell. This U-shaped pillow has no formaldehyde, odor, and aromatic carcinogens. The uniform health standards only want to give you a good nap.

Silk Sleeping Travel Set & Beauty Set

Have you ever heard of ‘beauty sleep’? That’s something you need if you want to look younger than you actually are. About beauty sleep, as the author of the book How to sleep well: the science of sleeping smarter, living better and being productive put it:

It may be one of the most enduring ideas about the importance of sleep but it is also one of the least researched. We all know the phrase ‘beauty sleep’ and intuitively we know that we need sleep to look our best but research has now proved that beauty sleep does exist. A study has shown that the faces of sleep-deprived individuals were perceived as having more hanging eyelids, redder and more swollen eyes, and darker circles under the eyes. Sleep deprivation also was associated with paler skin, more wrinkles or fine lines and more droopy corners of the mouth. Sleep deprived people were judged as looking sadder and this was related to them looking fatigued. Therefore, not only does good sleep make you feel good it makes you look good as well. So perhaps it is true as Tyra Banks, the American model, is reputed to have said ‘the most important item in your makeup bag is a good night’s sleep.’

When you take a long flight, it could make you miserable. So you will be needing a good ‘beauty sleep in the air’ as I’d like to call it.

When it comes to how to have a good sleep, we suggest you use silk products. Silk is made up of proteins and amino acids that naturally spring out of the environment. Thus, they are free of many of the chemicals that may irritate your skin or cause you to lose sleep.

Silk pillowcases give you a different sleep experience. For the pillowcase, the biggest advantage of silk material is smoothness, which can reduce the friction on the skin during sleep. Wrap yourself in the silk, just like wrapping the body with a hydrating mask and it is really comfortable to sleep on it. On top of that, When we wake up in the morning, the sleeping marks on our face are particularly deep and wrinkles are inevitable in the corners of the eyes. If the skin is sensitive, the face will turn into red. After changing into the silk pillowcase, the problem of sleeping marks and wrinkles is easily solved.

And you will be needing a silk eye mask for the trip. The hormone Melatonin regulates the day-night cycle of the human body and controls the recovery phases during the sleep. For the production of this hormone, the human body requires sufficient darkness. Lightness prevents the production of Melatonin. Even a little light caused, for example, by a digital alarm clock can be a disturbance. The best sleeping mask however will naturally help you increase melatonin levels. After reading a book that you brought or watching a movie on the small screen, our eyes will be quite tired. At this time, It could be better if we could put on an effective eye mask before going to sleep, it will reduce the distribution of nutrients from the face and eyes. You will feel very relaxed and happy. And will help you from getting jet-lagged.

Let’s face it: the free face masks that the flight attendants hand out on long flights just don’t cut it. They often don’t cover enough light or can easily slip down off your face. For a better fit, LILYSILK’s silk eye masks are shaped to fit your face without putting pressure on the eyes. The mask features adjustable straps, soft material and it completely blocks out the light. 

So after taking care of the neck support and a ‘beauty sleep in the air’, you will be feeling a lot better during the flight. So what else could make the trip better? I recommend the Exquisite Jacquard Silk Travel Bag to put your stuff in, and the Cute Printed Silk Lingerie Travel Bag to carry your delicate items. and maybe take a Mulberry Silk Handkerchief with you.

Already feeling the urge to take them with you on a runaway trip? Go! Go get them! You deserve it!
