• Shawl or woolen scarf

Weather is generally unpredictable. It can change at any time. As a woman, you should always prepare for such occurrences. If the weather or atmosphere suddenly changes, this accessory will prove to be handy. These light shawls come in varying designs and colors. Alternatively, you can accessorize them with your wear if need be, by turning it into a head wrap.

• Makeup removal towelettes

If makeup is your forte then you should prepare well for every trip. It is not advisable to sleep with a fresh face of makeup. The makeup removal towelettes can also double up as hand wipes when you do not have access to clean water and soap. The towelettes reduce your luggage as they substitute the traditional cotton swab, antibacterial hand wash, and makeup remover.

• Lip and hand moisturizer

Do you ever notice how your hands and lips dry up faster during trips? This is mainly because of the exposure to dry air in hotel rooms and planes. Moisturize your hands and lips with the use of salve moisturizers. Salve is advisable for those traveling through the air. The cabin pressure in planes is not favorable for carrying tube moisturizers.

• Sunscreen wipes

Gone are the days when people used to carry sunscreen lotion. It is messy to apply and leaves your palms with an uncomfortable extra oily feeling. Sunscreen wipes resemble regular wipes. They come in small foil sachets thus, making them easy to carry. These towelettes are just as effective as the sunscreen lotion. Rub a towelette on your body, anywhere and at any time. They also double up as wipes and can help in swabbing of dust and dirt from your body.

• Shoe bags

As you tour the world, you might get minimal time to do your laundry or clean your shoes. This is where shoe bags come in. They help you keep your smudged shoes away from your clean clothes and shoes. The fabric these bags also aid in preventing any intolerable foot odor or stains from spreading to the rest of your wear. However, these bags are not for storing wet footwear.

• Foldable flat shoes

These shoes work miracles. Squeezing in some extra shoe pairs into your luggage can prove to be taxing. These shoes are small enough to fit in your pouch. There are stylish foldable shoes that you can use to accessorize your wear during trips. They do not take up packaging space, and they increase your comfort.
