10 Ways to Travel like a Jet-Setter
Turn to Towelettes
Save space (and avoid potential leaks) by packing wipes infused with sunscreen, facial cleanser, and hand sanitizer. N.Y.C. dermatologist Francesca Fusco prefers individual packets, which are less likely than bigger sizes to dry out.

Forget the Sweats
Stylist Cher Coulter recommends layering breathable basics—cotton T-shirts, light wool sweaters—over tight, stretchy jeans, which maintain their shape after hours of sitting. Finish with a drapey scarf, which can double as a blanket, and slip-on ankle boots. "Wear a shoe that needs a sock," she says. "There's nothing worse than going barefoot through security."
Downsize Your Must-Haves
At home, decant a favorite shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and night cream into clear, travel-size empties. Then go to 3floz.com for mini versions of products you can't transfer, like hairspray.

Don't Fade Out
"The color always drains from my face when I fly," says L.A. makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, who says to carry concealer and a cheek stain for in-flight touch-ups. Even better? Invest in a travel-friendly palette, such as Benefit Cabana Glama ($36; benefitcosmetics.com), which contains small sizes of cult favorites like Hoola bronzer and Posie tint.
Toss Hair to the Side
Even the most voluminous waves fall flat on transatlantic flights, and buns don't make it easy to lean back and sleep. So hairstylist Enzo Angileri suggests you try a low side pony, like the one he created for Charlize Theron. "It's beautiful," he says, "and simple enough to redo without a mirror."

"High altitudes are super-drying," says Jillian Dempsey, who advises you spritz skin with a hydrating mist a couple of times during the flight. We love Jurlique's—one whiff of the soothing rose scent and you'll barely notice the turbulence.
