It’s vacation season, so we asked Mary Ann for her best travel tips to keep you glowing all flight long...
For flights, I typically wear as little makeup as possible (especially during a long flight). The stale air tends to dry out my skin, and lots of pore-inhibiting makeup can make it even drier. Instead, I lather on a face moisturizer like like Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Day Creme as soon as I sit down and feel an instant dryness relief. Also, the size is perfect because it has enough product to last me my entire trip.
At night, I like to relax and hit the reset button. Blaq Hyaluronic Acid Eye Masks moisturize and really de-puff the skin around my eyes. I use before I go to bed, or I'll put them on after boarding a flight. They are my secret weapon.
I use an electronic toothbrush at home, and I don't like to bring it with me when I travel because it’s expensive to replace if I lose it. Instead, I bring the Traveler Set because it comes with a travel toothbrush and toothpaste. It also comes with my favorite face mist, and I use it to soothe my skin throughout the day.
This Oribe Signature conditioner is a staple— It keeps my hair shiny and smooth. I always bring it with me, because some of the conditioners at hotels can really dry out my hair. The Oribe Signature Conditioner also has an amazing scent, it smells like a trip to the British Virgin Islands.
I don’t get to wash my hair every day when I travel. To keep everything fresh, I spray Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray on my roots and brush it through. The spray absorbs oil, adds body, and gives my hair a fresh scent. It’s small enough to keep in my handbag, I always have one in my carry-on.
