One of my favorite parts of travel is packing. I know, call me a dork, but it is. There’s something so wonderful about having everything you need right at your fingertips. One of the most difficult things to pack are beauty products and toiletries. They break in transit, airport security tosses things that don’t meet regulation, and you always forget to pack things you end up needing.
Fear not, fellow travelers! I’ve compiled a list of everything you need before you set off.
Nobody wants to sit next to the smelly person on the plane. Besides keeping yourself fresh and avoiding side-eye from your seat mate, be sure to pack a rollerball or atomizer of your favorite scent. This will come in handy more often than you think – freshen up a stale hotel room or spritz shoes that have turned to the dark side.
Dry shampoo is having a moment, and for good reason. Get that freshly-showered look even if your hostel hasn’t had running water in a week.
Your Go-To Face Cleanser & Moisturizer
Changing climates and exhausting travel can wreak havoc on your skin. Throw in your favorite products to prevent a full skin freak out.
Sunscreen is necessary even if you’re not going somewhere tropical. You can sustain sun damage even on a cloudy day, so rub some on before you set out on adventures.
A Nude Lippy
Cut down on suitcase clutter by packing a goes-with-everything shade. Not sure what shade is best? Base it off your skin tone.
