InStytutum Facial Sheet Masks
In your everyday life, it can be hard to take time to yourself and spend 20 minutes lying still with a face mask. That's why being on a plane is the perfect time to use a sheet mask: It'll keep you busy, and your skin is probably begging for rehydration at 30,000 feet in the air. These InStytutum masks are filled with collagen and antioxidants that naturally plump your skin and provide maximum hydration, so you land feeling refreshed and ready to go.
Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Blemish Eraser
It can be hard to travel with your full skincare routine (ugh, TSA regulations), which means your skin might totally freak out within 24 hours of leaving home. If you're trying to travel light, but not totally ready to part with your beloved products, pack these zit busters in case of a skin emergency. Just stick them on a blemish and watch it fade within six hours.
Away Carry-On Suitcase
OK, I know what you're thinking; it's just a suitcase, right? Wrong. Packing (and unpacking) is one of the worst parts of traveling, but if you choose a carry-on roller that fits everything (and then some), features a separate compartment for dirty shoes, charges your phone, and looks great in an Instagram, you're sure to have an extra bounce in your step — even if your flight just got delayed. Again.
STEP, Smart Traveler Enrollment Plan
Whether you're a frequent traveler or just nervous about heading to a new place, enrolling in the STEP (Smart Traveler Enrollment Plan) program through the U.S. Embassy is a great way to calm your nerves when out of the country. You can rest assured that your home country knows exactly where you are and how to reach you if there's ever an emergency — whether that's a natural disaster, a passport issue, or just a family member from home needing to get in contact with you.
