Five Beauty Tips for Travelers: For Work or Play

June 5, 2014

Whether you’re traveling for work or play, you don’t have space for your entire wardrobe or time for your full beauty routine. Here’s how to simplify and still stay gorgeous. So pack light and relax!

Streamline your makeup kit by packing only the essentials — an eye shadow palette with light and dark shades, a mascara, an eyeliner, a blush or bronzer and a lip gloss with a hint of color.

One product that warrants the space it takes up in your suitcase: sunscreen. It’s essential to help protect your skin from wrinkles, sun damage, and skin cancer. To save space, use a moisturizer that also has an SPF factor of at least 15, such as Vaseline® Total Moisture® Aloe Fresh lotion. Remember, the airlines limit containers size to three ounces in carry-on baggage. If you’re flying, transfer your products into travel-size plastic bottles.


For nail emergencies, pack an emery board — lightweight and practical —and also bring a small, unbreakable travel mirror.


Choose one hairstyle to wear while you’re away, so you can leave bulky gels and hair sprays in your cabinet. For no-fuss hair, for example, wear a ponytail with a broad headband or colorful scarf. Neatly part your hair to one side and work in some pomade or an all-purpose styling aid, such as TRESemmé® Extra Firm Control Gel, before sweeping it back to keep it smooth and avoid loose strands.

Focus on articles that can pull double duty when you can’t bring your whole wardrobe with you. Metallic flats, for example, transition well from day to eveningwear. A sarong can take you from poolside to luncheon with just the addition of jewelry and sandals. To be able to mix and match and get the most from limited choices, pack within one palette — a neutral base color like black or gray — and add a few colorful accessories.
