Handy toiletries for travelling
Friday, 17 Aug 2012
You know you can always count on us to be real.
The truth is, jet-setting is not glamorous business.
Unless you’re lucky enough to fly first-class and stay in 5-star hotels with boutique-end amenities all the time, you’ll know the downside of travelling includes (but aren’t limited to) greasy hair, dry skin, cracked lips, severe eye bags, possible water retention… it’s ugly stuff.
But if you want to look as celeb-worthy as those frequent first-class flyers, here’s a secret: it’s not hard!
We’ve rounded up some favourite TSA-friendly toiletries that will get you through security in a snap and fresh-faced for the cameras.
Your number 1 bet: pre-packed travel beauty products. Cult favourite Aesop has an all-in package, Kyoto, that includes both hair and skin care.
For fuss-free, TSA-approved shopping, hit up 3floz.com. Tons of brands, no messy repackaging needed, and you can choose between complete kits or individual products.
We’re borrowing from the boys here, but good things must be shared! If it’s a short trip, travel light with a 2-in-1 hair-and-body shower gel. Fight flaky skin with a long-lasting face serum and don’t forget those peepers.
Bonus: 66Â°30 only uses botanical extracts and is available in Singapore at natureLOVA.
Banish liquid spills in your make-up bag with these ingenious dry shampoo sheets. Keep the SPF up (yes, even while flying!) with Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ – it’s oil-free, fragrance-free, and prevents up to 90% of skin ageing.
