The holiday travel season is officially upon us so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite travel friendly beauty products in hopes that it will make this holiday travel season a bit less stressful…and germ free.

As everyone reaches for their camera to capture the season’s memories, now is the time to have a winter skin care regimen going in full force. Did you begin back when we began talking about holiday skin prep?

Since I know my family will be snapping lots of photos, especially since it is my youngest son’s first Christmas, I really want to look my best. And to be honest, I’m super self conscious about those photos going up on Facebook and my friends from high school secretly judging how I’m aging. (Admit it, it’s something you think about, too.)
