Must Haves: Five beauty items to keep in your carry-on

Whether you’re flying across the country or across the world, traveling is rough on the body.  Between the dry, stuffy air, uncomfortable seats and the high-salt in-flight meals, there is no better place to show yourself some TLC.  Don’t leave the ground without these five little beauty lifesavers.

Aveda Balancing Infusion
This all-natural combo of pure flower and plant extracts is all you need to soothe skin and stabilize natural oil production mid-flight. Plus the jasmine and plant ceramides help energize and moisturize.  When your skin is travel-stressed, this simple tonic is just the ticket.

Mineral Veil Finishing Powder by Bare Minerals

If oil and sheen are still an issue as you’re making your descent, just dust on a little Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil.  This light as air powder absorbs oils, minimizes pores and fine lines and gives skin a soft, youthful quality.  After 12 hours in the air, this simple powder is all you need to look runway ready (no pun intended).

Burts Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
Lips are delicate and too often we load them up with heavy waxes and not-so-friendly chemicals.  Thirty thousand feet in the air is no time for further abuse.  Keep lips smooth and hydrated with an all-natural balm, like this great pomegranate oil-infused pick from Burt’s Bees.  This lightly tinted balm is the perfect way to replenish and restore a dry kisser.

Organic Rose and Black Pepper Dry Shampoo
If you’ve never ventured into the world of dry shampoos that 14 hour flight to Tokyo is the perfect opportunity.  Dry shampoos are surprisingly effective at keeping hair healthy and voluminous, and with the added texture in-flight re-styling is a snap; just sprinkle a little of the powder along your hairline, wait a minute and brush.   Skinny Skinny makes this lovely travel-sized option for only $9.

First Aid Beauty Eye Detox Roller

No parabens, no sulfates, no synthetic anything, no GMOs and no more puffy travel-strained eyes; massive win!  This allergy and dermatologist-tested beauty must-have features a smooth metal roller ball that gently breaks up lymphatic build up and quickly soothes puffiness and dark circles.  Perfect for any skin tone or type, this handy little eye tonic is all you need to look rested after that killer red eye.
