As much as we all love to travel, we know the trip can sometimes wreak havoc on our appearance. After all the time you spend getting ready in front of the mirror, your reflection upon arrival reveals dry skin, tired eyes, and frumpy hair. But, there will be no more of that! Whether you’re jet-setting for work or road-tripping for fun your beauty regime does not need to take a backseat. These are favorite PrettyQuick tips for solving your travel-beauty-woes and staying gorgeous on-the-go!

The Skin You’re In

Problem: Dry or Oily Skin

Solution: The in-flight cabin air can make your skin flaky and dry. A facial hydration mist is a must-spray to keep your face fresh during your travels. We recommend spraying Arcona Lavender Hydrasol on at the beginning of your trip to protect and balance your skin and upon arrival to make your face look and feel refreshed.  We especially love that the hydration mist can be used before or after applying your make up! To avoid the dreaded T-spot oil, carry oil-absorbing facial sheets and dab your face as needed. We usually keep  a pack of Papier Pudré Oil Blotting Papers hidden away in our purse

The Non-Red-Eye Flight

Problem: Red and Tired Eyes

Solution: Eye-drops are your best friends while traveling! Maybe you didn’t catch any Z’s because you were stuck in the not-so-comfortable center seat or reading a book cover-to-cover. Whatever the case may be, eye-drops will take the red out of your red-eye flight. We recommend Visine Totality for your red and irritated travel-eyes. And for the bags that have found their way under your eyes, simply apply some Shiseido Benefiance eye contour cream on the unwelcome guests. Bye-bye puffy-eye!

Tame Your Mane

Problem: Flat and Oily Hair

Solution: Resting your head against a seat for hours at a time will cause a bad case of flat-hair. Thank goodness that dry shampoo not only fights oily hair but also keeps your hair volumized with the help of a slight tease. But make sure your dry shampoo doesn’t make you look like you are growing gray roots. Our pick is Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray, a clear aerosol that leaves your hair looking fabulous without any unwanted white residue. It even comes in a carry-on-approved 1.4 oz. bottle! Don’t want to fuss too much with your hair? A messy bun and a low ponytail are simple alternatives. You can even glam-it-up with a designer scarf. Wrapping your ponytail in an Hermès scarf grants you an instantly sophisticated look that will make your fellow travelers envious.
