Ever wonder how Kate Middleton keeps her crown jewel-worthy glow while traveling? For starters, she doesn’t take her skin care regimen lightly — not even when packing a carry-on.
We share some of her best-kept travel beauty secrets, plus the one thing she doesn’t leave home without, ahead.
1. She sticks with a natural beauty look
Keeping things natural may be a royal beauty rule, but it’s also an excellent travel tip. After all, whether you’re flying in first class or coach, there’s no need for a full face of makeup — especially because airplanes can have such a drying effect on the skin. When flying, Kate typically sticks with a natural makeup look and wears her hair in a fresh blowout or stylish ponytail.

2. She travels with her hairdresser
Although many of us can’t afford to travel with our hairdresser, Kate never leaves home without hers. When traveling on official royal family business, Kate’s hairdresser often accompanies her to ensure that her hair is always perfectly blown out.

3. She always gets a blowout
Speaking of blowouts, Kate is notorious for hers and always seems to have her hair perfectly styled no matter how far she travels. And though having your hair blown out a few times a week may seem like a luxury — because it is — getting a blowout once before a big trip can actually come in handy.

4. She keeps dry skin at bay with her favorite skin care line

5. She swears by Heaven Black Bee Venom Mask
Kate is a big fan of Deborah Mitchell’s famous bee venom facial. In fact, she even received one a few days before her wedding. And though traveling with her facialist wouldn’t come as a complete shock to us, it is probably unnecessary. So she opts for the next best thing: Heaven Black Bee Venom Mask. The $300 mask cleanses, tightens, and provides the complexion with a lifted appeal.

Thanks to its multitasking abilities, one of Kate’s favorite nighttime beauty products makes for a great travel companion. Formulated with 14 botanical oils, the Beuti Skincare Sleep Elixir works to fight inflammation, irritation, and even signs of aging. Kate loves it so much, she reportedly keeps three bottles on her nightstand.

7. She hydrates with rosehip oil
Like many of us, Kate seems to love natural beauty, especially ones chock-full of anti-aging ingredients. Case in point: Kate’s obsession with rosehip oil. Rich in antioxidants, rosehip oil is a great product to use daily, especially when traveling. It can protect the skin from various environmental aggressors, such as pollution, UV light, and the drying effects of air travel.
