Morgan's Travel Tips

Morgan Haile of Morgan Taylor spends much of her work life traveling the globe, so she's a pro when it comes to knowing the tips and tricks that will save you time and money. Here, she shares some of her best travel advice:

Tip #1 Moisturize in Advance:

The day before you fly, make sure to moisturize from head to toe. All that recycled plane air dries out your skin in a major way. Be proactive about your skincare and prep the day before to boost your skin's hydration.

Tip #2 Keep Cuticle Oil in Your Carry-On:

Refresh your hands and cuticles, as well as other dry spots (like elbows and knees), with cuticle oil. Traveling, whether on a plane, train or in an automobile, sucks the moisture from your skin. Cuticle oil protects your body's hydrogen and salt bridges, which helps maintain the skin's moisture — plus it smells good!

Tip #3 Don't Forget Eye Drops:

Looking at your phone, laptop or a TV screen during a long-haul flight can leave you with red, watery and sore eyes. Eye drops will keep them looking and feeling fresh.

Tip #4 Pack Cosmetics With Cotton:

There's nothing worse than having an item break during travel. Help protect your makeup by adding a small cotton ball or pad between the product and lid to keep your cosmetics intact, think: delicate items like pressed eye shadows and powder compacts.
