8 Beauty Essentials to Pack in Your Travel Bag To Avoid Stress


Heading out of town on business Or, maybe you're going somewhere exotic for spring break? For most ladies, the most anxiety filled part of traveling isn’t the long lines at airport security- it’s the packing! Especially when you want to look good while away and in all the selfies you’ll end up taking. Read on for my list of essential beauty products that will keep you looking your best. 

Facial wipes: You will use this non-stop from the flight to hotel check-in to post-excursion; wipes contain bacteria fighting ingredients to keep you feeling refreshed all trip long.

Sheet facial masks: More compact than packing an entire jar of your favorite face mask, a sheet mask can take your hotel stay from ordinary to lavish. Sneak 15 minutes to lay back and enjoy a sheet mask that will brighten up your complexion and reinforce your relaxed state of mind.

Lip balm: Keep lips moisturized and healthy while on holiday. It’s all about back to basics in regards to beauty when on vacation. You’ll be surprised how much better you look after a simple swipe of lip balm.

Multi-use products: Think lip and cheek stains, like Benefit’s Benetint. Pack a matte neutral eyeshadow that can also double up as brow powder.

Mattifying powder: Take this on the go with you to blot down your gleaming complexion.

Sunscreen: Do I really have to say it? Yes, I do! Pack it with you or buy it when you reach your destination- either way, get it, use it, and keep reapplying.

Leave-in conditioner: Between dips into the pool, beach, the sun’s heat, and any other natural wonders you’ll be experiencing on your trip it’s important to keep hair hydrated for a beautiful mane.

Facial cleanser: Don’t rely on the cleansers hotels provide, if they even offer it. Especially if your skin is sensitive, in order to avoid breakouts while on your trip bring your coveted cleanser with you and favorite skincare products as a mini version with you.
