The ultimate packing list for every backpacking beauty.
Now that summer is here, it’s time to pack your bags and head out into the great beyond for a bit of adventure. Deciding what to bring – and what not to bring – is the vital first step of any backpacking trip, so we’ve put together a list of backpacking essentials to help you do and see more, with less stuff.
When I’m travelling, I usually go au naturel, but every once in a while a girl likes to get gussied up, so I bring along a few makeup essentials for any such occasion. With such limited packing space, multi-taskers are a must-have; this one does triple duty: moisturizer, sunscreen and color correction.
Quick-Dry Travel Towel
A wet towel is heavy, and can quickly lead to a stinky situation. A microfiber towel is highly absorbent and will dry quickly so you can pack it without fear of mildew. Plus, it will reduce frizz so you can towel-dry your hair and still look good when you don’t have easy access to a blow dryer.
A little lip color goes a long way – whether you’re partying under the Eiffel Tower or having a picnic under the Tuscan sun. And you can use it as a blush in a pinch. Like I said – multitaskers.
There’s no worse feeling for a traveler than opening up your carefully-curated toiletries bag only to find everything drenched in shampoo. Swap out the liquid stuff for a 2-in-1 solid – zero spillage and one bar can last the whole trip.
Travelling shouldn’t equate to inadequate skincare. Stick to your daily cleansing routine without sacrificing precious backpack real estate with the LUNA play plus. All the benefits of T-Sonic cleansing, no bulky charger.
Silk Sleep Sack
Regardless of how many stars that hostel of yours received, clean linens aren’t always a sure thing. So why not bring your own? A silk sleep sack is lightweight and offers the peace of mind you’ll need to catch up on your beauty sleep.
