I’ve been traveling much more this year than normal because of all the events I’m managing for my “real” job. While it’s been great to explore some new cities, each trip messes up my weekly routine, and I LOVE routine. It keeps me focused and sane because who needs spontaneity and fun anyways? As my eating and working routine flies out the window during work trips, I hold onto my hair and skin care routine with a death grip.

When I travel for fun, I try to pack a carry-on because I think paying to check a bag is a crime and I’m terrified my bag will get lost in space. But when I travel for work, YOLO. Bag costs $50 to check? Not a problem. Bag over 50 pounds? Not a problem. You lost my bag? Problem, but I’ll just expense the stuff I purchase while I wait for my personals. And the best perk of checking a bag? Not having to deal with repacking liquids into stupid small containers. Full-size or bust for this bad bitch.

So on to the point of this rambling post … my go-to travel skin care and hair products, which just so happen to also be my every-day skin care and hair products.
