I dont know about you but out biggest problem traveling with is transferring our essential liquids to bottle 3floz or under. Between my shampoo and conditioner to my saline solution I need at least 3 little travel bottles when I hit the road. This doesn't include my skin care.
Did you know? People often breakout when they're on vacation, because hotel products are typically made for people with normal to dry skin. In lieu of using hotel toiletries while traveling, consider packing a few key essentials in your travel beauty bag. “Hotel soaps can be very drying and overly scented,” warns New York & New Jersey board certified dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Baxt. “Beware if you have sensitive skin and remember to bring your own toiletries.”
The re-circulated air on planes is five times drier than the desert and the lack of humidity causes loss of moisturizer. The air inside the cabin of a plane usually has a humidity level of 10 to 20 percent — much lower than a comfortable typical indoor humidity of 30 to 65 percent. All of which combines to equal skin desperately in need of moisture.
“Most people realize that flying can cause skin to dry out and breakout, but they may not know why,” says Dr. Baxt. “Whenever the environment is moisture-free such as with recirculated air in a plane cabin - the air actually draws moisture from wherever it can, including the skin. Dry skin will tend to get drier and oily skin will get even oilier to compensate for dehydration.”
I've just tried these Dot&Dot 1.25oz Travel Bottles in TSA Approved Toiletry Bag and am completely hooked. Here's why:

These are high quality and durable, unlike one time use plastic travel bottles. Even allowing me to include makeup remover so I can remove my makeup if I've got a late flight.
If you wear makeup, keep it to a minimum on the flight. “Airplane air is dry and can exacerbate your makeup's drying-out effects on your skin can which can lead to breakouts and your pores becoming clogged on the flight,” says Dr. Baxt. “Opt for tinted moisturizer if you cannot bear not having any make-up on; and use lip balm in lieu of lipstick as the cabin air is dry lips tends to feel a little dryer while on the flight.”
Your Travel Beauty Bag: What to Pack
With the ever-changing airline baggage regulations and costly baggage fees, it’s important to have a checklist of the essential skincare products you need when traveling. “If you're headed on a trip, you can't bring every makeup, skincare and hair care product from your bathroom,” says Dr. Baxt. “Plan ahead and pack smart when traveling.”
