Thankfully, a growing number of companies are becoming hip to the challenges faced by frequent travelers in the never-ending quest for top-quality, TSA-friendly personal care products. A few to try on your next trek:
- The new Travelux Skincare Set Travel Duo from SASE includes luxurious multitasking products that might even leave a little extra room in your bag. Boasting flyer-friendly packaging in small sizes, the Hydra-Purifying Cleanser 3-in-1 cleanses, exfoliates and acts as a hydrating mask, while the Advanced Hydra-Illuminating Skin Therapy 4-in-1 moisturizes and acts as a rich serum, eye cream and neck cream. Both products are built with antioxidants, peptides, skin-nourishing oils and probiotics.
- Lancôme adds a touch of luxury with great travel-sized makeup bag essentials: mini-sized Hypnose Drama Mascara for that night at the opera, and Bi-Facial Double Action Eye Makeup Remover to take it off when you’re back in your penthouse suite. Other choices in perfectly proportioned sizes include La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer Smoothing Effect with light diffusing action and proprietary Elasto-Smooth technology.
- Created by leading physicians in stem cell science at Rescue Skin’s high-tech California laboratory, individual packets that slip easily into your TSA-mandated personal care bag address a host of issues including windburn, puffiness, dry skin, thinning skin, redness and dark spots. Each single-use packet delivers up one serving of rich Serum Concentrate and one Ultra Moisturizer designed for preventative and regenerative skin care.
- With an eco-friendly “farm to farmacy” philosophy that utilizes healing organic herbs and pure essential oils, and skips aluminum, Propanediol, propylene glycol and artificial ingredients, the small, easily-packable tins in the First Aid Travel Pack from Green Goo by Sierra Sage come in blends such as Pain Relief (with arnica for sprains, sore muscles, bruises and joint pain); Dry Skin (with calendula flower for cracked skin, rashes, eczema and psoriasis); First Aid (with olive oil and a proprietary herbal blend for scrapes, insect bites, rashes, sunburn and poison ivy); and Skin Repair (with aloe vera and vitamin E for puffy eyes, minor burns and after-sun care).
I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
San Antonio celebrated 300 years of progress in May 2018. With a clear vision following that anniversary year, the Texan city set its sights firmly on 300 more. While commemorating this milestone, the city underwent a major overhaul to prepare for the next phase in its history.
I was part of a group of travelers attending the Hamad International Airport Expansion presentation in Doha. Most arrived the day before, but due to a family commitment, I arrived the following day. A driver picked me up at the airport and drove me to the sleek and modern Mondrian Doha, designed by Marcel Wanders of the Netherlands. The 270-room property was the first sbe hotel in the Middle East. My luggage was scanned and put aside for a hand check and the guard removed the little sleep sound device I use to cover city noise when I sleep and travel. “No speakers allowed,” the guard said, but once I explained what the item was he allowed me to take it. From there, check-in was swift, and I received a packet of information about dinner and the week’s agenda.
Though air travel slowed as airports temporarily closed and borders shuttered to stifle the spread of coronavirus, the airline industry — led by oneworld alliance member airlines — enacted enhanced protective measures to reduce risk and protect passengers.
As ACI EUROPE and leading European aviation associations recently detailed a plan to make sustainable aviation a reality, Munich Airport continues its work toward climate neutrality. In 2019, MUC was one of the first airports in Germany to sign a Net Zero Carbon resolution alongside more than 200 other European airports in 2019. The pledge aims to deliver net zero airport CO2 emissions by 2050.
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: We drove from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., without a hitch in early October. In communication with the Conrad staff, I was directed to the CityCenter Garage, where I could park and recharge my car. It was right around the corner and convenient; from the garage it is a short walk to the front of the hotel. Check-in took place on the ground floor versus the lobby to reduce touch points during COVID-19. The staff politely greeted us and gave us our keys; I was in room 1027. From the ground floor we took the elevator to the lobby level and transferred to the elevator bank to the rooms.
