For highly organized ladies, like myself, packing a carry-on can be the most anxiety provoking part of preparing for travel. Those long flights can make this a daunting challenge, knowing that you'll be stuck on the plane for hours, eventually feeling dehydrated and anything but fresh.
Here are my 3 favorite products that I can't travel without, as well as a fairly standard list to help you get started making your own:
1. Honest Co. 3-in-1 wipes
Ever since my daughter was born, I have been using Honest Company products for our cleaning and hygiene needs. If I am flying more than six hours, at some point, I want to take off my make-up. These face wipes are my everyday wipes (morning and night) and I always order an extra pack before a trip. Guys can use them to freshen up too or to wipe off the sleep sweats.
2. Avon Anew Clinical Overnight Mask
After a first meal on a long, overseas flight, I remove all my make-up and put this mask on my face for most of the time in the air (I wash and re-apply makeup before landing). It keeps tons of moisture in your skin amidst a dried-out cabin. I put a decent amount of the mask in a plastic container, because the glass container can be heavy and holds too much product for one trip. Definitely my secret for hitting the ground running when I get to my destination!
3. Colgate Wisps
I love these! They have a little drop of tooth paste in them that you bite open- you don't even need water. These are so much better than hauling everyone's toothbrushes and toothpaste onboard. Additionally, it lessens the liquid to bring along.
The other no-brainers on my list include:
- lip balm
- face wash (when I want more than the wipes)
- hand sanitizer
- rubber bands, clips
- small hairbrush or comb
- anti-bacterial wipes (for the bathroom and seat area)
- extra pair of panties or panty liners
