If you’re anything like us, half your holiday luggage consists of maintaining your beauty routine, meaning hand luggage only flight send you into a state of turmoil…


Because not only are we contending with keeping up our day-to-day beauty rituals, but factoring in the extra stress our hair, body and skin will endure once we reach our summer holiday destination. Beach waves and tans might be a vision, but the blazing sun and salty sea water can dehydrate and irritate sensitive skins.


Not to mention the stress our skin will go through on the flight alone… As your aircraft goes up, the humidity goes down, and that means dry and flakey skin is more than likely


The solution to all this? Packing your hand luggage with the best of beauty miniatures that are airport-security and beach bag friendly.


Luckily there are more of our favourite brands and products available in smaller sizes than ever before – and places like Sephora and Net-A-Porter (where you can find the products listed above) even have their own dedicated travel beauty tabs.


So check out some of our favourite tiny beauty provides above, and remember to pick up your travel essentials before your next trip.
