Heading to a snowy country this holiday season? Or maybe you’re head off to the warm beaches instead? Wherever you’re going, it’s always important to know which items of clothing, tech gear, skincare and beauty products you should be bringing with you. After all, you want to feel comfortable and right at home in the place you’ll be visiting; and be prepared for any situation you might end up in, right?

So whether you're already a seasoned traveller, or it's your first time venturing out into the world, keep reading below for our must-have travel items that you shouldn’t forget to bring along on your upcoming holiday trip.

Dry lips can happen to everyone, especially if you’re travelling. To ensure that your pout stays plump and healthy, always carry with you a nourishing lip balm. Because trust us, the feeling of chapped lips while on holiday is no fun at all.

Sheet Masks

Travelling can take a toll on your skin since the plane is filled with recycled air. That is why if you want to avoid dull-looking skin once you touch down, pack a sheet mask or two and put them on in-flight. They come in handy too when you want to give your complexion a treat after a long day of walking and sight-seeing.

A notebook is always one of those things you think you never need, but actually do. Bringing a small one with you on your trip can help you navigate the place better as you can note down your schedules, which trains to take, different restaurants to visit, and if you ever have little notes that you want to revisit later, you can write them all in here. You’d be surprised at how useful having a notebook is when travelling.

We hate to sound like a broken record, but wearing sunscreen is crucial to your skincare routine. Even if you’re heading to a cold and snowy country where the sun rarely shines, UV rays still exist everywhere, like your phones and computers. So make sure you take good care of your skin while travelling.

The best way to avoid premature wrinkles on your eyes is if you don’t squint; something which sunnies can help you out with. So don’t forget to pack your favourite pair in your bag. Not only will they protect your peepers, but they make a chic accessory too.

Dry Shampoo

Since your schedule will be packed with fun activities each day, you may not always have the luxury of time to take a shower and style your hair. The best way to prolong your beautifully blown dry mane? Dry shampoo. It will clean your scalp while adding volume and texture to your locks for that perfect bedhead look.

No matter how busy you may be on your trip, it's always nice to find time to relax and unwind. What better way to do that than by reading a book, play some games, or watch some movies on your iPad?

Hand cream

Who wants dry, flaky hands when they’re travelling? No one, that’s for sure. So don’t forget to pack your hand cream to nourish and soften your hands wherever you go.
