5 Travel Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know
Traveling is always a good idea, especially when you're going to see your "to-do" places like the Eifel Tower in Paris or the pyramids in Egypt. But regardless of where you plan to travel, it is important that you come prepared for the "unexpected" journey ahead. In this regard, whatever type of travel junkie you are, you will need to have some travel hacks especially in the beauty department. Don't fret about not bringing your whole beauty essentials with you because our top 5 travel beauty hacks below are what you need to survive life as a jet-setting wanderlust:
Hack #1: Comfy Pillowcase
Whether you're traveling by plane, by train or by bus, tugging along a comfy pillowcase is going to do wonders for your sleeping routine. Long hours will give you a moody and uncomfortable disposition, hence, sleeping soundly is a must! Make sure you opt for a pillow with silky-smooth fibers that helps maintain your skin's natural moisture as well as prevent wrinkles while you sleep.
Hack #2: Trusty Make-Up Essentials
Traveling on-the-go will require you to bring your most prized necessities even when you badly want to bring your whole make-up along with you! Choose the ones that will give you an "au naturel" look whilst traveling such as concealer, foundation, mascara and lipstick. These are pretty much basic, but they're what you need when you're jet-setting.

Hack#3: Coconut Oil
We can't stress enough the importance of coconut oil in one's life. Research has proven that the use of coconut oil on the skin may highly improve surface lipids and hydration. In addition, you don’t have to reach for expensive brands when taking care of your skin because coconut oil can remove your make-up, even against a waterproof mascara! It's the ultimate travel essential.
Hack #4: Travel-size Perfume
Traveling somewhere far where the sun will eventually drench your skin with sweat? Make sure you bring along a travel-size perfume for when you have to do an adventure that will bask you with a stinky, sweaty smell. If you have no travel-size perfumes, head to your nearest beauty counter days before you are set to travel and request for a perfume sample you're "dying" to get your hands on. Free sample products are usually pocket-size small so they're basically perfect for traveling since they won't take up so much space in your luggage.
Hack #5: Statement Jewellery, Dress or Shoes
When jet-setting across the globe, never forget to bring along a statement jewellery, dress or shoes with you. Whether it's a necklace, sundress or sandals, you're going to need to look fabulous for those amazing photo-ops when you visit Paris, New York or even the Machu Picchu in Peru!
