Between the airplane germs, the inevitable carb and sugar overload, and the lack of gym time, it's no wonder so many people get sick after a vacation. But there are steps you can take to help mitigate the stresses of the road. Here, we round up 9 health products we swear by when we travel.
HUM Nutrition Beauty Zzzz Vitamins
If you're one to pop a sleeping pill before a long-haul flight, consider this natural sleep supplement instead. Formulated with calcium, vitamin B6, and melatonin, it's a step-above your average health food store sleep aid.
Susanne Kaufmann Travel Kit
"Cankles," under-eye bags, and cracked skin is nobody's best look. How to walk off the plane looking like a million bucks instead? We, for one, turn to Susanne Kaufmann's Flight Kit. The 6-piece product contains TSA-approved versions of the Alpine brand's most popular organic formulations, including a leg and vein mist, a moisturizing mask, and an antibacterial hand spray.
This Works Deep Pillow Spray
An all-natural pillow spray that'll lull us into a deeper, more restful sleep? We were skeptical, too. But the proof is in the pudding: 89% of users in an independent study fell asleep faster and 92% felt more alert the next morning. Sign us up!

Not only are plastic water bottles bad for the environment—they're also harmful for your health. A safe and stylish alternative? This glass water bottle from bkr. It's BPA-free and comes celeb-approved by the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Charlize Theron, and Blake Lively.

If you find yourself tired, achy, and irritable on the road, take our advice and pour a generous glug's worth of this milky soak into a hot bath. We guarantee the heavenly scent and soothing ingredients (think: epsom salts, wild mint, Mediterrenean cypress oil) will instantly relax you.
Sakara Detox Tea
You know Sakara as the fashionable bicoastal delivery service beloved by A-listers like Lily Aldridge and Kate Hudson. While we can't speak for the eats, we can vouch for the line's delicious Detox Tea, which contains rose petals and stomach-soothing linden flowers.
Amazing Grass Green Superfood
Getting the recommended 5-7 servings of fruit and vegetables a day is a stretch most days—not least when we're on vacation. But invest in this nutrient-charged green powder—a combo of alkalizing green superfoods, antioxidant rich fruits and herbs—and you won't be compelled to order the salad in an authentic Korean BBQ joint ever again (we’re speaking from personal experience if you couldn’t tell).
1Above Anti Jet Lag Drink
This anti-jet lag drink made industry headlines when it debuted this summer. A powerful blend of electrolytes, grapeflo (a blend of circulation-supporting polyphenol extracts like those found in red wine), B and C vitamins, and Pycnogenol (natural pine bark), the drink helps to ease grogginess and support immune health.
