1. Keep Your Make-Up Simple
Flights can dry out your skin, so skip the foundation and opt for a moisturizer instead. When I am sightseeing or city exploring just a touch of foundation, mascara, and lipstick is perfect. Quick, easy and you’re out the door ready to explore a new place. Plus, there’s less to pack and keep up with so you travel lighter.
Healthy skin is always important, but becomes more so when you travel due to how dry air travel can make your skin. I know I mentioned using a moisturizer in number one, but this is very important. Traveling around and constantly changing climates can cause dry skin so I like to carry a little lotion in my bag. The ounce of prevention (pun intended) is well worth it, apply often.
3. Pack A Cute Pair Of Flats
Flats are great for trekking around a new city. Your feet are comfortable, yet you can still look stylish with a cute pair. They are usually small, flat, and crushable so they don’t take up too much room in your luggage. An added bonus is flats typically are very low cost so you don’t have to worry about getting them dirty or replacing an old pair on the go.
4. Pack A Stylish Hat
Hats are great for keeping the sun off your face, neck, and eyes. They can also cover up a messy head when dealing with a bad travel hair day because let’s face it, when you are on the go your hair won’t look perfect everyday.
5. Always Have A Scarf Handy
Scarfs are great for dressing up an outfit, but they hold several other purposes as well. A scarf can act as a pillow or a blanket on a long plane flight. My scarf even acted as a picnic blanket in the park once. They can even keep you warm and act as a shawl when you are wandering through a city on a breezy day. When visiting Europe in the summer some churches will not allow bare shoulders showing. My scarf came in handy in these moments, so that I could still explore the beautiful churches of Europe and wear a tank top on particularly hot days.
