Aside from photography there is one other subject I know quite a bit about: travel. I’ve done it until in tears, I’ve gone first class, by bus and train, and around again. One thing I’ve learned to do to make the whole experience less wrecking is to pack yourself an amazing amenities kit. The first thing I do when I get on a plane is to go through this process step by step to prepare myself for the flight and make the area around me (smell) more comfortable.
The most damaging aspect to travel is drying your skin out. Airplanes are the worst with their lack of humidity. I first started making my own amenities kit after traveling to Morocco with Kelly and she taught me the ways of surviving international coach with all the luxurious products we could possible slather on. And hey – anything to pass the time is always a good tip.
Here is what I’m currently carrying on these days while I bounce around from L.A. to Savannah to Telluride and beyond!
1. I love a good hydrating face mask. I don’t wear makeup, other than a little mascara on shorter flights, so I can keep hydrating my skin as much as possible. A great leave-on face mask is my favorite trick especially on overnight flights or long hauls across the states. SKIN INC has a pure deepsea hydrating mask that is clear which is amazing.
