A 3-Step Guide To Packing An Essential Beauty Kit For The Professional Woman On The Go

Whether it’s a couple of days or a full work week, traveling for business is no excuse for settling for second best and not practicing some self-care. You’ll have a packed schedule and important meetings, and being on your A-game is vital to feeling confident and professional. Looks aren’t everything, but when it comes to putting your best foot forward professionally while traveling quite a lot, getting into a routine where you don’t have to neglect your outward presentation can be tricky and stressful.

What if you forget a product? Research conducted by the Today Show and AOL found that it takes women an average of 55 minutes a day to get ready, and there are a lot of different products that are required during this time. When traveling, remembering all these items can be difficult. We’ve put together a step-by-step process to help every woman who is constantly on-the-go remember all her beauty essentials when traveling for business.

1. Start With Your Hygiene and Shower Products

To avoid missing any beauty products, begin packing by going through your beauty routine, starting with your shower and initial hygiene steps. Shampoo and conditioner, body wash, face wash, toothbrush and toothpaste, a razor, body lotion and deodorant are the essentials for this step, but make sure you think about your personal preferences. Is there any other beauty regimen you like to complete in the shower or just after getting out? Walk yourself through your morning shower routine to ensure you don’t leave anything out.

With domestic carriers such as Delta and US Airlines allowing a checked-in baggage allowance of roughly 50 pounds, carrying travel-size bottles of these products is a great way to save space, leaving more weight for great clothes and shoe options. While most brands will have travel-size options for heavier products like shampoo, you can always purchase travel bottles at the store and fill them up with your favorite products.

2. Move On To Make-Up and Hair

The next phase of your beauty regimen is usually your make-up and hair. Hair products are usually straightforward and include dry shampoo, straightener/curler, hairspray or any other product you use for your specific hair, as well as any hair accessories. Each woman has their own make-up routine and this should be considered closely when packing. Start with the essentials such as foundation, concealer, eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss; and then add on slowly until you’ve filled your travel bag with other make-up items like eyeshadow, lipstick, blush and an eyebrow kit.

While this step can involve a lot of products and therefore be stressful, don’t compromise on the quality of the products you include. For example, if you’re struggling with space, why not include BB Cream? It can be used as a concealer, primer, moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation, replacing five products with just one. Try sticking with good quality products as well, as they will last longer and will be less likely to get ruined with all the travel.

Amway offers a variety of high quality cosmetics, and even have little make-up kits that are perfect for traveling. You don’t want to be caught out at the airport, being forced to throw away your fave products, so travel-sized products are a must. As a little side tip, while you’re on their site, take a look at joining the Amway family as it’s a great program that teaches people how to succeed in business.

3. Add on the Extras

Once you’ve gone through your morning beauty routine, there are still a couple things you might need on the side — this is where it can get tricky to remember. Think of products that you may not use every morning but are great to have with you just in case. Nail kits, perfume, tweezers, face masks, hair treatments and even jewelry are great beauty essentials to keep with you in case you need some extra refreshing after traveling.

Maintaining your beauty standards is vital when traveling as a business woman, but it can often be difficult to remember everything. While you prepare that important presentation and pack everything you need for your meetings, don’t forget the daily beauty and self-care essentials that will help you feel confident and professional.
