Traveling can be tiring and stressful, and it can take a toll on your good looks — but don’t worry! There are ways to look and feel your best, even when you are on the go. Whether you are on a road trip or on an overnight flight, these beauty products have got you covered, beautifully.
2-in-1 tinted lip balm:
Always keep a lip balm in your bag and use it liberally to keep your lips hydrated against high heat or air conditioning while traveling. These products are light, durable, and multi-purpose. Apply a tinted balm on your lips and cheeks for a healthy glow, and you can reapply it to build the color from a natural to a more dramatic look.
A tiny yet strong moisturizer:
Carry a small container of an intense moisturizer with you to keep your hands and elbows from drying out throughout your trip. It is also important to apply moisturizer on your face and body before your travel, especially on a plane. According to WebMD, this can help increase the hydration of your skin before you are exposed to the dehydrating effects of cabin pressure.
It's not very easy to wash your face to fix an oily T-zone while travelling. That’s when these small absorbing papers come to the rescue. Use blotting papers — or rice papers — to dab up the shine and oil from your skin. A few quick taps will make you look and feel more refreshed.
When showering is not an option, a good dry shampoo can get rid of oily roots and add volume to your hair. Try an aerosol formula. Position the bottle 10 to 12 inches away from your roots, lift your hair up in 2-inch sections, and spray lightly. Work any excess white powder residue with your fingertips, and use a slim hairbrush to further blend the product into your hair.
Mineral water mist:
Skip the foundation on your day of traveling and use a hydration mist followed by a light, tinted moisturizer instead. The mist will refresh and hydrate your skin, and also help set your makeup even in high temperatures and humidity. You can reapply it as needed.
Many fragrances now also come in tiny rollerballs that can fit even in the tiniest clutch. Pick a fresh scent and carry it with you to keep on smelling great as you travel.
