Work travel: What skincare to pack?

Packing for a business trip

We have talked about what clothing and what makeup to pack for a work trip, but let’s not forget about our complexion.  Depending on the schedule I will have on the trip, I like to add little treats for my skin that I may not get around to using at home. Cleansing – I’ve traveled […]

Most of us are experienced travelers in the sense that we know to downsize our toiletries and not to pack five pairs of shoes for a three-day weekend.  We know what to take for skiing and what to take for the beach.  But what do we pack for a more exotic trip?  What are some […]
