Thanksgiving is basically here, and while I'm looking forward to a delicious home-cooked meal and plenty of wine and dessert, I am less than thrilled about traveling. The week of Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of year, and if you're headed to the airport like I am, you're bound to be a bundle of nerves by the time you hit your destination. Even if you're not braving the TSA line at LAX and simply hopping in your car for a few hours, you're sure to feel that twinge of anxiety when you're bumper to bumper in traffic. All this and we still have to pack.
For me, Thanksgiving "break" is long enough to warrant packing more than sweatpants but short enough to make it far too easy to put off packing until the night before. To avoid the last-minute scramble, I'm planning my list now and stocking up on plenty of multitasking beauty essentials so I can look and feel rested, no matter what the airport (and dinner conversation) brings.

Supplements & Tools
Supplements and tools are the keys to getting me through a rough travel week. Ice rollers, micro-rollers,В and dermaplaning tools all help me look refreshed and vibrant post-flight, and Sakara Life snacks keep me full, satisfied, and feeling healthy.ВStacked Skincare Soothing Hemp Seed Stack $223 $210ShopSakara Life Sleep Tea $20ShopStacked Skincare Ice Roller $30ShopSakara Life Detox Bars $29ShopSakara Life Daily Probiotic Blends $46ShopStacked Skincare Micro-Roller $30ShopSakara Life Chocolate Probiotics $39ShopStacked Skincare Dermaplaning Tool $75Shop
I refuse to skimp on my skincare routine when I'm home, which means I'm packing plenty of serums with brightening and detoxifying ingredients, combined with masks that will squash acne and make my complexion glow.ВStrivectin Multi-Action Moisture Matrix Melting Cleanser $35ShopStacked Skincare Hyaluronic Acid Eucalyptus Hydrating Serum $130Shop111SKIN Anti Blemish Bio Cellulose Facial Mask $25ShopStrivectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream $95ShopStrivectin Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk $79ShopStacked Skincare Calming Hemp Seed Facial Elixir $130ShopStrivectin S.T.A.R.

When it comes to makeup, less is more and multitasking is key. My essentials include CC cream, an all-in-one brow-and-eye palette, an easy lip color, and mascara that makes me look awake even post-turkey.ВIt Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Cc+ Cream Spf 50+ $38ShopClarins Kit Sourcils Pro Perfect Eyes + Brows Palette $43ShopToo Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $23ShopBobbi Brown Take It To Glow Highlight And Bronzing Powder Palette $59ShopMarc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Liquid Eyeliner $30ShopEstГ©e Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup $42ShopCharlotte Tilbury Life Changing Lashes Eyelash Curler $16ShopCharlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips Lipstick $34Shop
If I wash my hair more than once when I'm home for the holidays, it's a miracle. Gross but true. To keep it looking as fresh as possible, I'm sourcing copious amounts of dry shampoo, silk hair ties for crease-free styling, and travel-size tools, in case I'm inspired to attempt a blowout.ВSlip Set Of 3 Silk Hair Ties $39ShopIGK First Class Travel Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo $14ShopR+Co Tinsel Smoothing Oil $25ShopTangle Teezer Compact Styler $16ShopGHD Flight Wanderlust Travel Hair Dryer $99ShopBalmain Paris Hair Couture Universal Cordless Straightener $360ShopIGK Beach Club Travel Texture Spray $14ShopRaincry Condition Travel Pure Boar Bristle Paddle Hairbrush $85Shop
