10 Things You Need for Traveling this Winter to Stay Healthy
Keep the Germs at Bay on Planes with PlaneAire Travel Essentials
PlaneAire recently introduced their new Travel Essentials. Packed in a ready-to-go, reusable zip-top bag, the plant-based Travel Essentials includes one Clean Surface & Air Mist, six individually wrapped Clean Surface Wipes, and one PlaneAire Hands hand sanitizer blend of your choice.
If you fly often - especially during flu season...not to mention the whole global pandemic that we all just went through - then you know that air planes are just a cesspool of germs.
Using PlaneAire will help ensure that you have a hygienic journey from Point A to B, with just 3 simple steps, everywhere you go.
- Spray Clean - Spray the air and surfaces around you to hygienically clean, freshen and deodorize. Don’t forget to bring it with you to the restroom.
- Wipe Clean - Wipe the surfaces you are going to touch. If you’re in a window seat, don’t forget to clean that window before you rest your head on it.
- Sanitize Hands - When you’re all done cleaning the space, sanitize your hands and enjoy the moisturizing ingredient and pleasing scent.
What makes Clean Surface & Air Mist and Clean Surface Wipes unique?
PlaneAire Surface & Air Mist and Wipes hygienically clean using fruit acids and the proven PlaneAire Blend® of pure certified organic essential oils: Peppermint, Lemon Peel, Oregano, Thyme, and Lavender to provide you with a fresh kind of clean. You can find these handy traveling products at PlaneAire.com!
Keep Handzies with you and wipe away the germs!
I have been using Handzies.com for a while now - I think I was first introduced to the brand during 2020...and I have never looked back! I actually keep their hand wipes in my purse, backpack, make up kit - as well as taking them with me when I travel. I was SO GLAD I had them with me when my friend and I took a very long...DIRTY bus ride from Marrakech to Agadir in September.
For school lunches, in the car, at the park, on an airplane, while backpacking, before post-workout errand running...it's so often you need a quick way to clean up when a sink isn't handy.
Handzies is on a mission to get you soap and water clean, anytime, anywhere and they are accomplishing just that with their soap and water wipes! You can use them to clean hands after a messy meal, to wipe little kid's faces after eating an ice cream - you name it, and it's the perfect little wipe for the job! There are no harsh chemicals, as it is just soap and water, not sanitizer.
That means that you can use it to clean your hands after eating, and won't have a gross taste in your mouth afterwards.
Always TOAST Before You Drink While Traveling!
These tasty Before You Drink Gummies are powered by natural ingredients to help restore key nutrients and support your liver so you can celebrate and still feel great!
Always Toast partnered with leading clinical researcher Dr. Joris Verster, founder of the Alcohol Hangover Research Group, to develop their proprietary formula using only the best, science-backed ingredients.
The party pouch contains 8 servings of gummies, making it a perfect fit for home use, sharing at parties, or for trips, cruises, and other vacations! They are so easy to use, you simply take one serving (5 gummies) before drinking. Take up to one additional serving (5 gummies) as needed.
The Before You Drink Gummy is the gummy bear snack that's got your back. They partnered with a premier American candymaker to help create these tasty little gummies, which are made in the USA in a FDA registered, cGMP facility.
That partnership definitely worked to their favor, because while they don't taste like candy, they do taste like a sweet little gummy!
You can find these Before You Drink Gummies at AlwaysToast.com.

MAËLYS Summer Collection
Yep, it is a summer collection - but if you're going somewhere warm, it's basically summer year-round anyway! I used the So Prepped tan accelerator while in the Bahamas during rainy season, and I actually got a little bit of a tan on my legs, even though it rained that whole day!
SO-PREPPED (tan accelerator):$29 – This tan accelerator helps you to quickly achieve an even, deep, long-lasting tan by triggering your melanin receptors.
SO-JELLY (after sun restorative mask): $35 – This refreshing jelly mask aids hydration, promoting the repair of the skin barrier after sun exposure, helping to calm sunburnt skin. This was VERY useful for me after I accidentally got burned while in Morocco in September!

A packable, light, fashionable hat – that is made for sun protection!
Specializing in UPF-protective headwear, Wallaroo Hats received the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation for adequate sun protection, meaning each style has a UPF rating of at least 30+ and a minimum brim width of three inches.
This protects skin from 96-97.5% of the sun’s harmful rays, ideal for hot days spent outdoors. Styles like the Kristy and Aria are a few hats that would be a great option for a useful, yet fashionable, holiday gift or to take with you during your travels - ANY TIME OF YEAR!
Yes, that's right - you should be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays even during the winter months. And I don't know about you...but I tend to travel to a lot of tropical climates during the wintertime as well!
You can find a great selection of hats at Wallaroo.com!

Manage Soreness and Fatigue During Your Travels with CBD
NextEvo Naturals Revive CBD Complex 20MG Per Serving (60 Capsules) are perfect for Muscle Soreness/Pain, Brain Health, and Travel.
Rev up the benefits of CBD with Revive CBD Complex Curcumin & Hemp Extract. Curcumin (the main component of turmeric) is known for its healing properties - but it’s hard for the body to absorb. The Revive CBD Complex contains Curcumin C3 Complex with BioPerine - making it 20x more absorbable.
Revive promotes a healthy inflammation response, can stimulate antioxidant activity, supports brain health and soothes muscle soreness.
What makes NextEvo truly unique is their proprietary SmartSorb delivery technology, which, unlike competing products, is backed by science. Recent results from a new study conducted with Colorado State University’s Department of Health and Exercise Science found that NextEvo’s Smartsorb tech increased absorption into the body by over 4x!
