Really simple mistakes on planes that make you feel awful

FLIGHT Attendants have uncovered the secret to staying fresh after a flight and not feeling dehydrated – and it’s all about your pre-travel routine.

The dry cabin air can leave people feeling tired and dehydrated, even if they drank water regularly during the flight.

According to flight attendants, passengers should drink extra water the day before the flight

But according to cabin crew, it’s already too late to take action at this point and they instead recommend preventive hydration, starting the day before passengers’ journey.

In a post on Reddit, a frustrated traveler reached out to the flight attendants and asked how they all managed to stay looking their best, even after long journeys.

They wrote: “I always marvel at how good the flight attendants look after a flight with my whole face cracked, my hair like straw, my eyes pink – why don’t you look like a dried out old bag?”

They were told that drinking extra water the day before their trip was the best step.

A companion replied: “If it’s a really long flight, you need to start drinking water the day before the flight. If you drink water on the day of the flight, it’s too late.

“A big guy like me loses an extra liter of water on a three-hour flight. That’s in addition to normal sweating, breathing, peeing, whatever.

Another person agreed with the technique, adding: “It’s best to drink plenty of water the day before. I drink about 2-3 gallons of water a day.”

That’s not the only trick, as experts have revealed, avoid the buns unless you want to feel sick after landing.

dr Charles Platkin, executive director of the Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center, reviewed a number of in-flight meals and warned that high-carb foods won’t fill you up and will make you sleepy upon arrival.

Unfortunately, that also means items like pasta and cakes are also taken off the list, unless you want to feel sick while on holiday.

He told Travel & Leisure: “Eating a lot of heavy carbs like pasta with thick dense sauces, bread, muffins or cake leaves you feeling lethargic, moody and not full or satisfied

“Your blood sugar levels rise and then fall, which affects how you feel.”

Likewise, salty, oily, or spicy foods can be delicious, but you might feel a little nauseous during the flight.

Greasy foods can tax your digestive system, cause abdominal pain and also induce nausea as they increase the feeling of nausea.

Serena Poon, a nutritionist, told Insider, “These types of foods can slow down your digestion and worsen motion sickness symptoms.”
