The Travel Beauty Essentials You Need To Pack Now
It's that time of year again! Whether you’re planning an idyllic trip to sandy shores or travelling somewhere cooler to beat the Middle East heat, its always best to pack light when it comes to your travel essentials. Whilst we want to take our entire wardrobes, makeup and beauty cabinets with us, there is a way to lighten the load when it comes to your skincare essentials – we cannot be responsible for all of the shoes you packed and didn’t wear.
Flying can be dehydrating for your skin, as can cold weather, and through it all, sun protection is a must, so AboutHer.com have curated a list of travel essentials for your beauty bag for every climate…
