Travel Beauty Essentials

Women often use various beauty products, from moisturizers to creams, perfumes and the likes. For this reason, it has always been a challenge to pack for trips. Deciding what to take with you and what to leave at home can be stressful.

All liquids that you take on the plane must be TSA approved, meaning there are certain allowable amounts. For some it must be less than 100ml and the container cannot be larger than 3.4 ounces. Find travel friendly products or those that come in travel sizes.

Make a list of the things you need, from night creams, cleansers, moisturizers, lip treatment and body lotions. One thing I learned when traveling is to take the items you cannot live without, because they may not be available at your destination or they may cost twice as much.

Your destination will determine the products that you will bring –sunscreen for sunny destinations and lotions for dry and cold climate for example. SPF loses its potency over time, so it is best to buy small bottles, so that you have a new one for each trip.

Prepare a re-sealable plastic bag and use it for your toiletries. Throw in some tissue and cleansing wipes too. Opt for products that come in bars or sticks when it comes to soap and deodorants. Nowadays, you can easily get shampoo and lotion bars in specialty shops.

Product samples are also helpful. So do not say no to perfume samples or ask your dermatologist for sample sizes of your skin care regimen. Try to take inexpensive products which you can leave behind to make space for new finds during your trip.
