Your carry-on bag won’t be complete without a tube of Carol’s Daughter Roses and Honey Lip Balm ($4, carolsdaughter.com). The cocoa butter and beeswax-based balm locks in moisture, while sweet almond and jojoba oils keeps lips feeling pillow soft.
Bermuda? Bahamas? You’ll only be a pretty mama if you slather on the SPF to prevent sun-related hyperpigmentation. One sunscreen to try: Rx for Brown Skin Age Block UV Shield SPF 15 ($29.95, rxforbrownskin.com), comes in a globe trotting-friendly 1 oz pump.
Individually packed, Myfaceworks I Need to Wake Up Facial Mask ($9, 3floz.com), goes on in one sheet and sits for 10-30 minutes to allow the serum to soak into skin. After using, skin should look hydrated, smooth, and radiant.

Housed in a chubby stick, the Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer ($34, vapourbeauty.com) goes on surprisingly sheer for a lit-from-within glow. The best part? It’s made with shea butter and a host of antioxidant extracts, so it’s good for your skin, too.
If you’re traveling to a dry climate (i.e. Arizona or the home of your great aunt who loves to crank the heat indoors), tote a Stadler Form Travel Humidifier ($60, flight001.com). Measuring in at less than 5 inches long, it can still add moisture to the air just like its full size counterparts
