If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked recently-engaged model and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss about the protein bar, probiotic, and liquid melatonin she can’t live without.
I am the snack queen when it comes to traveling. I always pack nuts, almond butter, and fruit to sustain my appetite, but my favorite thing to bring is Perfect Bars, especially in the dark-chocolate almond flavor. I’ve tried other bars but these keep me fuller longer — because they’re packed with protein — while still satisfying my sweet tooth.
After putting on a face mask during a flight (my favorites are the ones I can get from City Pharma in Paris, which has the widest selection), I love using my butterfly stone to do a lymphatic drainage massage on my face and neck. It really does help to de-puff the skin and stimulate circulation. Compared to other face massagers, it actually makes a dramatic difference because of the shape of the stone (especially the tips of the wings). It gets into every angle of your face. It comes in handy when you get off a red eye and have to go straight into a busy day having to look your best.
I am a germaphobe, so this is an essential item in my bag. It smells heavenly and feels light on my hands compared to other hand sanitizers that need not be mentioned.
As soon as I get on an overnight flight, I like taking melatonin to help me fall asleep and feel well-rested, because I know the minute I land I’ll be heading straight into a busy day. I prefer liquid melatonin to the tablets — I’m convinced it works faster.
I recently began taking Seed’s Daily Synbiotic for women after a friend of mine introduced me to the brand. Gut health is so important, but it’s often overlooked. I think it’s too soon for me to say what difference they’ve made, but years of research and development was put into creating these supplements — they have a combination of probiotics and prebiotics.
These pajamas are so comfortable and chic to wear on an overnight flight. I actually have a set that says “Klossy” on the front pocket. My mom always told me, “When you go to bed in matching pajamas, you sleep better” and I think that’s always stuck with me.
I tend to wear simple accessories that are easy to mix and match with any outfit, whether I’m dressed up or casual. I love Swarovski’s Hall Swan necklace as it’s a minimal yet chic statement piece that pairs well with anything in my carry-on. [Editor’s note: Kloss is a Swarovski brand ambassador.]
