Best planning tip: No matter where I’m going, I always bring along an emollient lip balm with SPF and hair spray. I apply the lip balm to chapped lips, dry patches, ragged cuticles, and flyaway hairs. It also gives cheeks and lids a pretty, dewy glow and a dash of sun protection. The spray gives hair volume, great “bedhead” texture, helps disguise unwashed strands, and just a little spritz also cures static cling in clothing instantly!
