So, as you may or may not know, I do tend to travel a lot. Whether it’s for work or play, traveling with psoriasis can suck! So what do I do?
This weekend I was in Chicago attending the HealtheVoices conference and it was amazing (but I’ll come back to that in another blog). What WASN’T amazing was my packing skills. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on a plane (not nearly as many as Beyonce but you know…) and I still can’t get it together. I’m always scrambling last minute. (insert frantic emoji)
SO … I decided to get it together.
BECAUSE my skin is so sensitive and I do need special creams and lotions and shampoos, I packed myself a little “Pspot-On Carry-On” toiletry bag. Everyone is different and I am no medical professional but I’ll tell you what I pulled out of my little bag of tricks… (and, no, it wasn’t a lamp).
We know clothing is important (for your skin, sanity, so you don’t get arrested… stuff like that) but let’s focus on some products. Here’s my arsenal:
-Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap
-Grandpa’s Pine Tar Shampoo
-Blue Eiffel Naturals Face & Body Wash
-TheSleepyCottage sleep mask
-Any sort of baby lotion
-VitaminC Packet (just because)
-My own soft washcloth
-Any perfume I want (so long as I spritz it on my clothes and not my skin)
-A clean pair of panties (ask my mom… i can hear her nagging now… “Do you want to die with dirty underwear??” OK MAAAAAA, They’re packed! Ya Happy?)
I tucked all my toiletries into this beautifully sewn bag and It was a wrap! Why didn’t I think of this sooner????
Moral of the story??? Just have a handy toiletry bag ready to go. Throw some of the amazing products I suggested in it (or don’t) but be ready. You never know where a spot may go….
HAPPY TRAVELS !!!
