If you have trouble packing for your overseas holidays, here are our tips for looking good and – most importantly – saving suitcase space and weight on your carry-on…

Get Prepped – Before you fly, squeeze in all your beauty appointments. Check out the contacts in the WY? Address book and make the following appointments:
- Haircut & colour
- Eyebrow shaping and eye lash tint
- Pedicure & manicure
- Spray tan (destination dependant)
- Wax

Multi-Tasking Products – A long flight can do serious damage to your skin’s equilibrium. Hit the ground looking your best with our multi-tasking picks:

Protect & moisturise : Clinique Super City Block SPF 30+
Hydrate & refresh: Jurlique Hydrating Rosewater Mist
Brighten and hide : Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer Golden Radiance

Keep Under The Limit – With everything you need having to fit into a clear plastic zipper bag and nothing over 100mls, packing an airport-approved beauty kit can be a challenge. Buy refillable containers such as the Manicare Travel Tubes or invest in a travel kit of mini versions of your favourites like the Molten Brown Frequent Traveller.

Good Hair Days – Have holiday hair sorted with a select number of products. The essential…? Travel sized Kiehl’s Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner and Shampoo will keep your hair soft and subtle no matter what kind of water comes out of the hotel shower. For those in-between days, a good quality dry shampoo in a travel size like Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo is the way to go!
