Holiday travel can be stressful and wreak havoc on your hair and skin. Stale airplane cabin air, changing climates, and making sure you arrive fresh faced and put together are not the best of combinations when travelling any time of the year, let alone during the Holidays! There are some essentials you must always have on you when traveling to make sure that you look your best when arriving at Grandma’s house. A quick round up of some of the best products to keep in your bag or carry on will give you the boost you need to feel like a human when you step off the plane or out of the car.

It’s always best to keep an army of hair products with you at all times. From a brush, to hair ties and even dry shampoo…the essentials will keep your hair look its best regardless of the situation. Take it from me, there have been plenty of times when I leave the house with freshly done, styled hair and by the time I make it to my destination after a days worth of traveling, my hair is not cooperating. A little dry shampoo at the roots and a quick pony tail give me a new look on the go.

For your face there are many ways to stay fresh. You can wash your face, even in an airport bathroom to get all the gunk and dirty bits from a plane, off your face before heading to your final destination. You even have options of facial mists to “recharge” your makeup. BB Cream is perfect to stash away in the event that you need a quick touch up to even your complexion. Lastly, don’t forget the lip balm and mascara because those two pieces can make you feel alive after an 8 hour day.
