Do you promise to stay stylish in and out of town?
It's time to learn a few things that make grooming easy even without your usual range of toiletries, clothing accessories, and closet space.
Fortunately, most of these tips and tricks are things you do before your trip so that the minimal grooming items you'll have with you can be sufficient.
We'll start with what you should do as you prepare for your trip to make every grooming possible.
It'll make your beard or head hair manageable throughout your stay. You might have to change your hairstyle into a manageable one that you can touch up in the morning during your trip.
Such a lightweight trimmer takes up less space in your luggage. On top of that, you don't need access to direct power if you're traveling to a place where that would be inconvenient.
Get multipurpose cordless clippers that you can use to trim stray hairs on your head and your beard. It should also be waterproof to wash it quickly in the shower after a haircut.
Airport security restricts the size of bottles you can have in your luggage. Therefore, decant full-size bottles and use travel-size containers. Toiletries like shaving cream, colognes, and hairspray should not exceed 68 fluid ounces, and each container should carry 17 fluid ounces.
If you're a regular traveler, invest in these travel-size containers. But, it’s expensive if you’re not a regular traveler. Instead, use generic travel-size bottles approved by airport security. When you have them in your carry-on bag, they should be in quart-sized bags with a capacity of 3.4 ounces or less.
3-in-1 products minimize the space your hair and body care products take up in your suitcase. It also reduces the cost of buying decanting containers that are airport approved.
If you only have enough space for your clothes, buy grooming products like toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream, and body wash on arrival. That'll make the check-in process at the airport easy because you won't have liquids.
Freshen up as often as possible, whether during a layover or after a meeting just before a dinner date. Use a dry shampoo on your hair until you have time to wash it. You can also use face wipes to freshen up your face.
A pocket-sized sunscreen can also come in handy when you're unexpectedly out in the sun for too long.
A trip can turn from exciting to forgettable fast. It's even worse when you're meeting people who matter, such as friends, business prospects, or a love interest. But, the problem doesn't start when you arrive; your preparations control how you'll look throughout your trip.
For instance, what if airport security confiscates your toiletries and you can't afford new ones on arrival?
Therefore, pack TSA-approved grooming products, get multipurpose products to reduce luggage, and invest in cordless appliances like a hair trimmer.
