Wherever you’re jetting off to this fall, make sure to pack plenty of hydrating products. They’ll help your skin adjust to the dryer air and cooling temps. Here are a few of my favorites for this time of the year. They are all 3.5 ounces and under so you can pack them for the flight and use them throughout your trip.
I usually stock up on makeup remover wipes before I travel. They are so convenient to use at the airport before an overnight flight or at the hotel after an exhausting night out. But lately, I’ve been reading about how horrible they are for your skin. That’s why I’m so excited to try this hydrating oil. You can easily pump it into your hand and massage directly on your face before rinsing with warm water. It will get rid of stubborn makeup and leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft.

I already own the Rosewater version of this spray, which is incredibly refreshing to spray on your tired, lizard-like skin after flying. For some reason, the smallest size rosewater comes in is still 4 ounces, so I’m always nervous to try to sneak it in my makeup bag. Thankfully there’s a tiny 2-ounce, travel-safe size of the aloe, cucumber, green tea version. It smells garden fresh and will wake you right up, even if you’ve gotten zero shuteye. (Buy it here, $5)
Personally, I find it inconvenient to pack a bunch of different lotions when I travel. But I don’t like to go an entire week or two without under eye cream (wrinkles wait for no one, friends.) Enter this tiny, 0.5-ounce bottle which barely takes up space in your carry-on, but is going to feel amazing to dab under your eyes after a long haul trip. (Buy it here , $37)
If you want to try to look as awake as possible immediately upon landing, this compact mascara will give you the mega volume you’re after. It’s also the perfect size to throw in your day bag or evening clutch and re-apply as needed. (Buy it here, $14)
Travel is never easy on your skin, especially during this unpredictable time of year. If you need to cover up any redness (and I always do after a flight) you can’t go wrong with this travel-friendly BB cream. It contains moisturizing and smoothing ginseng and promises to deliver a “baby skin” effect. It also contains SPF 20, so you’ll stay protected from whatever the weather brings. (Buy it here, $39)
