"I won't board a plane without it in my bag. Flying is very dehydrating. When your nasal passages get dry, viruses can enter and you can catch a cold. This is emollient keeps your nasal passages moist, so you don't get sick. It's so effective that NASA includes it in astronauts' medical space kits."
Kahina Travel Basics Argan Oil
"Each bottle is only 1 ounce, so it's great for air travel. I always make sure I have the bottle of argan oil with me on the plane because it feels great on my skin. I use it on my hands, under my eyes, and on my cuticles to combat the dry cabin air."
"I've done some crazy, long-haul flights and this deodorant has never failed me. Whether you're flying to visit family or to take an amazing beach vacation, this should always travel with you. Since it's a paste, I scoop some out and keep it in a smaller container in my carryon, which is something you can't do with a traditional stick deodorant."
Arpin Handbag Mirror
"This mirror has amazing optics (normal magnification on one side and 7-times magnification on the other), so I can apply my makeup by window light and really see what I'm doing. Also, I love how chic it is. It adds that needed bit of glamour to travel that we all need."
Tsubota Pearl Perfume Rollers
$38 each; shopreedclarke.com
"Because I carry so much stuff when I fly for work (60 pounds of makeup, anyone?), I pare things down as much as I can. I love that I don't have to travel with a full size bottle of perfume any more. You spray your perfume into this little 'stick' using the enclosed funnel, so you can always have your favorite fragrance in your purse. It comes in multiple hues, so you can color code your fragrance if you're a scent hopper. I wish i had invented this!"
