5 Beauty Products Every Traveling Entrepreneur Needs in Her Suitcase
While traveling is crucial being a modern entrepreneur, it can also be the main culprit behind a whole host of skin issues. To start, your skin is the most hydrated at humidity levels above 40 percent, and the humidity levels on planes are barely half that amount. The result is skin dryness and irritation, as well as excess oil production which occurs when your body tries to offset the loss of hydration. These issues are only exacerbated by excessive travel, something business leaders find themselves doing often as they jet set off to meetings at international offices or travel the country in search of their next round of funding.
Unlike those traveling for leisure, entrepreneurs don't have the luxury of spending hours getting the condition of their skin back to normal. So using preventative products (like the ones listed below) before, during, and after a flight is an important component to helping jet setters feel good and look good as they step off the plane and run to their first meeting of the day.
Ahead, shop these five popular beauty products that can help modern entrepreneurs look more like they've just walked out of a spa than off of a crowded economy flight.

A favorite rejuvenating mask amongst Sephora shoppers is the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, a natural enzyme solution that restores the skin’s natural glow while also minimizing the look of pores and uneven skin texture. And like all Tata Harper products, this formula is vegan and free of any toxins, fillers, artificial ingredients, and parabens. Consider it the closest thing to getting a facial in your hotel room.
