No matter how many times we remind ourselves, we always forget one item; toothbrush, cuticle oil, tweezers. Then there is remembering that everything for the plane has to be under 100ml and then having to remember everything you need upon arrival. Oh and what to wear when you are traveling... maybe what Carrie Bradshaw wore when she moved to Paris and landed off the plane in a veil and the kind of dress you wear to the Met Gala? Personally I prefer a Stella McCartney two-piece, a Mary Poppins bag, and a pair of reflective sunglasses so nobody can see your eyes rolling. Ideally your luggage should be lighter than your body mass. Now you can order beauty products online, why not do it in the comfort of your own bed, with a martini in hand. Let My Beauty Matches lighten your load and for the sake of Zen, here is your ultimate checklist, and some of the top beauty tips for healthy skin.
So you’ll definitely need earplugs, your toothbrush not forgetting your dental floss, a neck cushion, pillow spray, eye mask, deodorant, and some de-stressing aromatherapy oils to create a haven. Top online beauty buy: Aromatherapy Associates De-stress Frankincense Pure Essential Oil, £26, will give you the clarifying powers needed.
You want to avoid arriving at your destination with dull skin so the best beauty tip for healthy skin is to keep skin hydrated during your flight. Your number 1 pre-flight top beauty tip start moisturising heavily a few days prior to prep for the low humidity. I recommend your skin is deeply cleansed and exfoliated pre-flight with Crème De La Mer Cleansing Oil, £65.
