Your insider’s guide to Hong Kong

Staying Healthy While Travelling

Frequent travellers are no strangers to aches and pains on the road. Not only can bugs spread easily in airplane cabins, regular fliers often suffer from dry skin, stiff backs and a lack of healthy snacking options. Fortunately, there are some fantastic Hong Kong brands to help you look and feel good on your next trip.

Jahmu

To boost your immunity: Jahmu turmeric tonic
Handmade in Hong Kong, this golden turmeric tonic is like a ray of sunshine in a glass. Inspired by traditional Indonesian health drinks, it’s packed with health-boosting roots, herbs and spices, making it a natural immune booster to keep you fighting fit as you travel.

FoodCraft

For healthy snacking: FoodCraft’s good-for-you treats
Local brand FoodCraft has an impressive line of vegan, paleo, allergy-friendly and gluten-free snacks that are perfect for stashing into your carry-on. We love the nori and pumpkin seed tamari crackers for their rich umami flavour and low sodium content – a great alternative to salted peanuts – as well as the raw macaroons that come packed with superfoods such as goji berries and raw cacao powder.
Available at Just Green, 1/F, Wong Chung Ming Commercial House, 16 Wyndham Street, Central + branches, or online at foodcraft.hk

Body Awakening

For improved sleep and relaxed muscles: Body Awakening’s MagC supplements
If you suffer from muscle aches, stress or sleep issues, you could be low in magnesium. Stir up a glass of Mag-C powder from Hong Kong-based supplement company Body Awakening to tackle all three problems at once. It even comes with an added shot of Vitamin C and calcium to help combat oncoming colds, and its pleasant lemon flavour makes it easy on the palate too.

Beyorg

For skin hydration: Beyorg’s skincare line
Keep your skin hydrated without chemicals by paying a visit to Beyorg. This local brand is a pioneer in bringing organic skincare to Hong Kong, and has opened a new store and spa in The Landmark. To protect skin from the harsh cabin climate, we love De Mamiel’s Spring Facial Oil. Designed to protect skin during changeable weather, milk thistle, jojoba and rosehip help to balance moisture levels, while anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients help to combat dullness and maintain a healthy glow.
Shop 301A, Landmark Atrium, Central + branches, beyorgbeauty.com

Show your love for the planet, stay comfy AND look stylish as you board with athletic brand Rumi X. Believe it or not, these brightly coloured tops and leggings are made from upcycled plastic bottles – and with their four-way stretch you’ll be totally comfortable on your next long-haul. Their long-sleeved Wings support tops come with mesh panelling for breathability and deep concealed pockets for phones, passports and other essentials.
