Travel, especially by plane, can be physically and emotionally taxing. But regardless of where your travel plans take you, or how many planes, trains, and automobiles it takes to get there, you can always refresh your face and maintain some semblance of home by applying your favorite skincare products throughout your journey. Take a load off and leave a few pounds of products at home by only toting the necessities in manageable mini-form. We have compiled some of the best travel kits to ensure that your skin, face, and hair are well cared for whether you'll be sliding down the slopes in Aspen or on safari in Africa.
Spritz Away Facial Stress
Airplane air is seriously drying. To avoid doing unnecessary damage to your skin, remember to spritz your face post-flight. (FYI: New airline regulations restrict carrying spritzers in your carry-on.) In addition to the reliable Evian face spray, there are a number of new products that are filled with hydrating hydrosols, nourishing minerals, energizing herbs, and calming essential oils to help keep your skin plump and produce extra beneficial effects.
Anakiri Rejuvenating Mineral Mist balances the skin with hydrating botanicals, lavender hydrosol, sea algae, and aloe vera gel.

Don't submit your skin to the generic products that fill most hotel rooms. Just because you are on the road doesn't mean that you have to neglect your skin. In fact, you should pay even more attention to your face when you are traveling. Between the recycled air in planes, the smog that seeps into your car on the highways, and foreign pillows and sheets, your skin takes a serious beating when away from home. Save your face with miniature pre-packed versions of your skin's essentials care elements.
