Frequent fliers know that hair and skin treatments are difficult to keep track of when you cross time zones or endure multiple long haul flights each week. To make matters worse, airplane cabins are also extremely dry, and changes in pressure can wreak havoc on the skin.

Fortunately, as the world continues to travel more and more, beauty brands have recognized the need for travel-friendly skin and hair products. From pint-sized leave in conditioners to oil absorbing tissues, these 8 products will help you step off the plane and into the day feeling fresh-faced and put together. Plus, they are all small enough to fit into your carry on liquid allotment.

1. Marc Anthony Grow Long Super Fast Miracle Treatment

Travel can either leave your extra oily or dry and damaged. Skipping regular treatments due to time zone changes or long haul flights makes the problem even worse. Work to counteract this with this mini container of Marc Anthony’s Grow Long Super Fast Miracle Treatment. The concentrated treatment nourishes your hair to rebuild brittle strands and nourish dryness to prevent future breakage. You can even apply this pre-flight and rinse off when you arrive at your destination.

2. PleasingCare Natural Bamboo Charcoal Oil Absorbing Tissues

Looking in the mirror after a long flight can be terrifying, especially if you need to walk straight into a meeting. Hours in the desert-like conditions of a plane can make a face turn excessively oily. If you have oily or combination skin, you should always carry oil absorbing tissues in your carry on or handbag. In particular, these premium blotting sheets produced by PleasingCare can soothe and refresh your skin. They are produced from natural linen fibers and organic bamboo charcoal for a gentle freshness you won’t find from other face wipes.

3. Caudalie Beauty Elixir

A great way to refresh your senses after a long flight or a long commute, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a multi-purpose facial mist you’ll quickly fall in love with. Use it as a toner before makeup application or use it after you’ve finished applying your powder to set your face. If your face starts to look a little cake-y during the day, simply use a couple of spritzes of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir to freshen up.

4. Neogen Real Fresh Cleansing Stick Green Tea

While you would have trouble getting most liquid facial cleansers past TSA, that isn’t the case with the Neogen Real Fresh Cleansing Stick. This solid stick cleanser is contained within a heavy plastic tube for easy transportation, yet it works just the same (if not better) as other liquid cleansers. Designed for sensitive skin, the cleanser contains green tea seed oil and green tea leaves for gentle exfoliation. Gently rub the cleanser on moistened skin to clear away daily dirt buildup and makeup.
