Girls while traveling need a few things to assist them and save them from panic situations. You’ve got your flights booked and you’re counting down the days until you leave. You are pretty excited and maybe those pretravel jitters are setting in. However there a number of things you need to pack before you step out to explore.

  • Sunglasses, Sunscreens, and Moisturizer

Airports and airplanes can wreak havoc on dry skin, and dry out other skin types, thanks to the air conditioning and recycled cabin air. Instead of arriving at the end of a long flight with dry, flaky skin and chapped lips, remember to put a small tube of hand/face cream. 

 Your skin and eyes need protection from the harsh Sun. To protect your skin from unnecessary tanning, dryness, rashes carry sunscreen and lotion depending on the humidity of the place. Carry sunglasses that not only help you look stylish but also protect your eyes from the UV rays. 

  • Sanitary Products

Any girl should always carry with her Sanitary napkins, tampons, or menstrual cups. One should be prepared for any mishap that can destroy their fun and dress. 

Carrying them with you will save your time in roaming here and there to find a trusted company’s products.

Even if you aren’t expecting to need them, long-haul travel can cause changes to more than just your sleep cycle with the dreaded jet lag, it may also cause your cycle to change slightly – and that is something you definitely want to be prepared for! Keep something in your handbag or just in case you’ve forgotten to plan out this particular aspect of a longer trip. 

  • Baby Wipes and Tissues

Even if you aren’t traveling with a child, you should consider keeping a small pack of baby wipes with you. From dealing with minor spills or sticky surfaces on the airplane. They help in fixing your makeup or even taking it off while in the air so that you can redo it on landing.

Baby wipes are incredibly useful to clean face and make it fresh again. 

Airports in some countries don’t provide toilet paper, so you’ll want to have something in your purse just in case, and tissues can also help deal with minor spills or wet spots on your seatback tray. 

  • Personal Media Kit:

Thirdly, carry prescribed medicines as you may need them anywhere. Change of climate, weather, temperature, food, and water can have an effect on your health and you may need medicines. 

Make sure that you always carry a list of all the medicines you take in your purse or wallet. The list should also have the phone numbers of your doctor and pharmacist.

This information is helpful, because if you lose your medicines, you may need a new prescription.A medication list is also helpful to have in case you have to go to the emergency room.

Take enough medication for your trip in case you need to stay longer.

Also take along a few over-the-counter medications to treat pain, fever, or diarrhea. You also may want to have an antihistamine for allergies or allergic reactions. This way you won’t have to find a pharmacy or store late at night or in an unfamiliar location.

  • External Chargers/ Power Banks

If you love travelling then you should consider buying yourself a power bank to accompany you wherever you go. Buying this device is a must if you want to stay connected with your family and friends at all times while you are traveling across the globe. A power bank can easily charge all your necessary devices without a problem.

These are a must as you may need them a lot while traveling. Phones have become an important part of our life. We use them as navigators, clock, camera, booking hotels, taxis, online payments, calls.

 You never know when and where will you find a good power source to charge your phone’s battery. Traveling International, you also need to take care of different types of sockets you will find. 

  • Earplugs and Eye Masks

Sleep is really necessary to recharge your body and again become active to explore the world around you. If you don’t sleep well, you won’t be able to travel all day and get tired easily. That will destroy your plans and mitigate your fun. 

Eye Masks will help you to relax, complete your sleep in flights, long cab journeys, at the airport and even if you want complete darkness in the hotel. 

Earplugs also assist in the tasks reducing the amount of noise that will disturb you. They will protect your sleep from the baby’s unnecessary cries. 

  • Sports Shoes, Jogging Pants, Tough jeans

Don’t carry only party wears and fashionable clothes. Carry some gym clothes that will help you with hiking, cycling, running, camping and much more. If you have to walk all day, heels won’t help, only shoes can help you. The shoes should be travel-friendly meaning they’re lightweight, semi-collapsible, and have flexible midsoles.

If they’re made with plenty of mesh, you might have a winner, as this material is very lightweight and packs well. Next, you want to make sure the shoes are comfortable on your feet and provide ample protection when you run.

Lastly, you’ll want a pair of running shoes that are durable so they can survive plenty of trips and tons of run sessions.

  • Shawls or Scarfs

These days everyplace is fully Air Conditioned. Airports start giving winter feels after a few hours. You need something like a shawl or warm clothes to protect you from both natural and artificial cold winds. Whether to keep warm, dress up an outfit, cover your head, or use as an extra blanket, a large scarf can serve any number of purposes. You can use them to pad a fragile souvenir, or as a cushion.

If you are traveling to a cold place you should definitely pack them. They will protect you from cold winds and keep you warm and active enough.

  • Refillable Travel Perfumes, Mini Size Shampoos, and Body Washes

While traveling we cannot forget about our skin. Change in weather and temperature  cannot be controlled but hair fall can be. 

Carry your own shampoos and washes, the one which suits your body. Ditch the big and medium versions and carry as small as you can. These things are generally provided by the hotels in complement. 

  • Extra Clothes 

Keep at least two pairs of extra clothes. Spillage, dirt, unexpected havoc on dresses can lead you to think why didn’t you bring a set extra. Keep a full sleeved attire too. Packing multiple thin layers takes up less space and offers more flexibility than packing bulky items like sweaters and coats. Today’s trend include layering. Layers make you look stylish and trendy.

There are a lot of things that need to be listed. However the above listed 10 things are on the top of my list.
