After pre-trip planning, getting through TSA, and making a mad dash to your gate — you might need a little pick-me-up before, during, and after your flight. Here are seven black-owned beauty must-haves to keep packed in your carry-on beauty kit.

Marie Hunter Beauty Crimson Lip Balm

Dry cabin air can take a toll on your entire body, and that goes extra for your lips. This gel-based formula lip balm gives your pout the moisture it needs with the help of vitamins and natural humectant while providing sheer color.

Your lips won’t be the only part of your body craving moisture since many of us leave our flights with ashy, dry hands thanks to the recycled cabin air. Adding this fragrance-free whipped body BUTTR made with a shea and mango butter blend to your carry-on will keep your skin moisturized.

KAIKE MELT Cleansing Oil

After a flight, skin care is essential as flying can make your skin more susceptible to breakouts. Since your skin will likely be dehydrated post-flight, washing your face with an oil cleanser will wash away all of the dirt and debris while helping your skin maintain the moisture needed to keep the skin balanced. KAIKE offers an all-natural, preservative free cleansing oil that can last up to one year when kept in a dark, cool area.

Plant Apothecary RE: FRESH Organic Toning Face Mist

If you’re in need of an in-flight pick me up, a toning mist will hydrate and refresh skin at the same time. This mist is loaded with cucumber, rosewater, and aloe vera that will tone and refresh while the lemongrass provides an antibacterial element that will help keep the breakouts away.

Base Butter Radiate Face Jelly

Pre-flight skin prep is a must, especially when embarking on a long-haul flight. This aloe-based face jelly is lightweight, but the non-comedogenic formula is omega-6 fatty acids, lavender (which regulates sebum secretion), and tea tree. You can apply this before and during your flight to ensure your skin stays in tip-top shape.


Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave-In Conditioner

Whether you’re rocking your natural coils or a protective style, your hair will need some extra TLC. This leave-in is excellent for use on the ends of coily hair to revive it on your travels.

 

Beauty Bakerie Cinnamon Roll Metallic Lip Whip

If you’re a lipstick lover, packing this metallic smudge-proof, lip whip in your carry-on is a must since you won’t have to reapply even after in-flight meal service.
