It’s summer and that only means one thing – vacation time! While you might be packing the sunscreen and bikinis for a beach trip or sweaters and overcoats for a jaunt to the mountains, one factor is often overlooked and that’s the travel sojourn. From drying stale air in the flights to long haul car rides, I’m listing 5 essentials you should pack in your carry on for stylish travelling.

A Scarf:

This is perfect for your long haul flights, from wrapping your hair to prevent static or just keeping warm – whatever it is, a scarf will go a long way. We love this blue hued one from Accessorize.

Moisturiser + Lip Balm

Stuck inside a plane is probably the worst thing that can happen to your skin. It saps all the moisture. Hence, slather on a thick layer of moisturiser and lip balm. We’re loving the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration that provides 24 hour hydration, leaving the skin smoother and softer. Priced at ₹2,100 and available at Kiehl’s stores nationwide.

A Jacket:

Keep out the draft by carrying a jacket that can easily be thrown over your simple jeans + t-shirt combo or dress. Not only does it serve a practical purpose but as you disembark, it also instantly makes you look polished.

 CC Cream:

Landing and heading straight to a meeting? Or taken those dreadful red-eye flights? Cheat a full night’s sleep by applying some CC cream. Packed with SPF, moisture boosters and colour correctors, this is a 3 pronged arsenal to make your skin glowing no matter what. We love Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream available at all Clinique stores for ₹2000.

Wipes:

Remove traces of make-up or just excess oil from your face by keeping a packet of wet wipes handy. The Body Shop Wipes priced at ₹500 are perfect to snap up.
