What to Carry On
Arrive gorgeous and refreshed, thanks to versatile makeup and smart multitaskers for your skin.
1. Tinted Moisturizer
It hydrates skin, acts as a foundation, and some provide SPF. Jessica Wu, a Los Angeles dermatologist, suggests Dior Hydra Life BB Creme SPF 30 ($56, dior.com).
2. Waterproof Mascara
New York City makeup artist Carmindy loves long-lasting Blinc Mascara, which enhances each lash ($26, blincinc.com).
3. Lip Balm
An oil-rich one locks in the moisture that plane air zaps. Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15 softens and adds a pink tint ($25, fresh.com).
Dark circles? Dab on illuminating Bodyography Canvas Eye Mousse ($19, bodyography.com).
5. Neutral Makeup Palette
With 18 colors for eyes, lips, and cheeks, Laura Mercier Glamour Wardrobe flatters day or night ($98, lauramercier.com).
What to Pack for Your Face & Body
Load up on daily skin-care musts, then toss in a few troubleshooters to tackle travel-specific concerns.
A pore-friendly mist shields from head to toe without stickiness. Jill Waibel, a Miami dermatologist, likes Replenix Sheer Physical Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ ($34, dermstore.com).
2. Face Mask
To erase the signs of fatigue, Brigitte Reiss-Andersen, a makeup artist in New York City, swears by SK-II Facial Treatment Masks ($90 for 6, shop.sk-ii.com).
3. Body Lotion
Go for one with shea butter or nut oils, like Tocca Crema da Corpo in grapefruity Cleopatra, which treats parched spots and doubles as shaving cream ($20, tocca.com).
Dallas aesthetician Joanna Czech freshens while out and about with Malin + Goetz Pill Towels; wet one in water, and it expands to a 9-by-11-inch washcloth ($10, malinandgoetz.com).
5. Bath Salts
Zen out in your suite's tub: Lollia's Sea Salt Sachet in Wish, a vanilla scent, is good for four dips ($14, lollialife.com).
6. Breakout Buster
To banish blemishes, Waibel recommends salicylic acid, like that found in VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector ($25, vmvhypoallergenics.com).
7. P.M. Moisturizer
An airy whip, such as Clinique Moisture Surge Intense, will never create an oil slick ($36, clinique.com).
Wash and smooth skin with Dove's Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Bar ($4 for 2, walmart.com).
9. Blotting Sheets
To lift Tzone shine without shifting makeup, Wu relies on Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5 at drugstores).
What to Pack for Your Hair
Frizz, flatness, or fried ends? Not a chance. These essentials guarantee good hair days wherever you may roam.
1. Flexible Hair Spray
It holds updos in place and keeps down flyaways, yet combs out for easy restyling. Sharon Dorram, a colorist in New York City, likes Phytolaque Soie ($18, beautybar.com).
2. Dry Shampoo
Dorram dusts roots with Dr. Hauschka Body Silk to absorb oil, boost volume, and create beachy texture. Swept on skin, it also sets makeup ($35, drhauschka.com).
3. Hair Mask
The argan oil in Josie Maran Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment rehydrates sun-dried hair on contact. Bring one ampule for each week you'll be traveling ($36 for 5, sephora.com).
4. Mini Hair Dryer
Hotels often install these in bathrooms -- which, of course, get damp -- but Wendy Iles, a hairstylist in Paris, takes a B.Y.O. approach. "You can't get sleek hair in a humid space," she says. Plug the powerful fold-and-go Brookstone Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hairdryer into a drier spot in your suite ($40, brookstone.com).
5. Shampoo & Conditioner
Many in-room freebies are harsh on color, so Iles totes gentle products. Skip heavy bottles and opt for the mini packets in Oribe's Beautiful Color Travel Set ($20, oribe.com).
6. Styling Cream
A drop pre- blow-dry combats humidity, and a coat before swimming repels chlorine and sun damage. Try Bumble & Bumble Color Minded UV Protective Styling Balm ($28, bumbleandbumble.com).
7. Beveled-Edge Flat Iron
Flip ends, go straight, or make waves with the slim, rounded plates of the GHD 1/2" Gold Series Professional Styler. Its universal voltage is an added bonus ($225, ghdhair.com/us).
