SPF spritzer

Taking an SPF is something most people forget even though the sun can have a damaging effect on your skin. When traveling, you may be exposed to harmful UV rays without realizing it. You can get travel sized SPFs or even moisturizers with SPFs in them. Make sure you apply it daily to stop any premature aging of the skin.


Face wipes

As well as allowing you to freshen up in an instant, some good quality face wipes will allow you to get clean and wash your hands whenever you need to. Exfoliating skin care wipes are the best as these have a raised texture allowing you to freshen up at any time you like while also being able to rub away any of the dirt and residue which may have built up on your face.
