Just ‘cause you’re on the road (or in the air) doesn’t mean
you hafta sacrifice your beauty regimen. Sure, space is tight when you’re
living out of a suitcase, but we’ve got six must-bring products for when you’re
away from home. Read on!

1. Try tying your hair into two braids during long flights.
After you land, untie your hair and comb through with fingers. Voila: instant
waves! To maintain this effortless style, scrunch your hair with some styling
wax. We recommend Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Paste Wax. This 99%
naturally-derived formula gives you 24-hour definition without stickiness,
silicones, dyes, or parabens.
2. Did you know skin needs at least 40% humidity to be
healthy and hydrated? Alarmingly, the humidity in an airplane is only 8%! Our
tip? Try not to wear a lot of makeup to prevent emphasizing dry skin flakies
during and after the flight. Better yet, use the extra hours to moisturize your
skin with a creamy lotion. This one is formulated especially for gals with
sensitive skin and girlies prone to clogged pores (which lead to breakouts!).
3. Finally, bring wet wipes to keep your hands and face
clean: Airplanes are germ-ridden! We recommend antibacterial wipes over hand
sanitizer because the ethanol in hand sanitizer might be drying and harsh on
your skin in an airplane environment.

1. It’s nice to enjoy a long catnap while mom or dad is
driving, but it’s terrible waking up with dry-as-a-desert eyes! These drops
will help soothe those irritated eyes and protect against dryness throughout
the rest of your day. Not only will you feel more comfortable, but your eyes will
look shiny and sparkly!

2. Bring an eyelash curler. After sleeping, your droopy
lashes will long for a much-needed lift. If you don’t want to carry an eyelash
curler with you, try putting your index fingers up against your lashes and
gently push those lashes up for a temporary hold to help you look more awake.
3. If you’re still sleepy from the car ride, try patting a
highlighter shade to “trick” others into thinking you look bright-eyed and
awake! Use white eyeliner on your lower lash line to make your eyes appear
larger and refreshed.
