I'm A Beauty Editor & These Are The Only Products I'll Travel With

Photographed by Serena Brown
From makeup to skincare, most of us have got our daily beauty routines nailed. But carry-on restrictions and limited suitcase space means the products we travel with always need to be a little more streamlined than usual.
While hundreds of different products land on my desk every month, there are only a handful that I trust to take away with me. Essentials like SPF 50 and dry shampoo make the cut for obvious reasons, but different climates may call for extra hydration and humidity-defying ingredients, not to mention mess-free formulas and smart packaging.
Ahead, you'll find the reliable hair, skin, makeup and body products I pack every single time I travel.
