7 Genius Travel Hacks Every Woman Should Know
There are few things in life that we despise more than packing. Dragging our reluctant (and somewhat suspicious) selves to the gym, chugging any green juice that claims to bestow glowing skin (I plug my nose when no one’s looking), and admitting that it is simply nonnegotiable to go one more day sans shampooing—these are all child’s play in comparison to that dreaded carry-on. Seriously, it comes to us in our nightmares.
For us beauty addicts and product hoarders, separation anxiety regarding our daily must-haves is real—and slightly alarming. The mere thought of leaving behind our favorite lip balm or breaking our can’t-function-without-it blush into a powdery mess sends us into a tizzy. So, to get our packing panic in check (traveling is supposed to be exciting, after all), we’ve rounded up seven hacks guaranteed to streamline the not-so-fun packing process. Keep scrolling to see the tips that will revolutionize your packing game forever.
Product spills make for not only a terrible mess but also precious dollars down the tube. The idea of half of our La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Emulsion ($300) mingling with our favorite pair of jeans is enough to make us cry—so never forget to tape around the seal of your travel containers.
Not only does butter have some great health benefits, but in a pinch (and when your pout is two steps passed parched), it’s also an awesome alternative to a hydrating lip balm, like Rosebud Perfume Co.'s Strawberry Lip Balm ($7). Dab the teensiest bit of it on, and we promise your lips will be unbelievably soft, and, well—buttery (sorry, couldn’t help ourselves).
