In addition to featuring Meghan’s outfits, I’ve received a number of requests to share more of the new royal’s favorite beauty, skincare and hair products! Just in case you missed it, I featured some of her holy grail makeup items here back in November and got such great feedback from it! Glad you guys enjoyed it 🙂
Let’s take a moment to talk about one of Meghan’s absolute travel essentials. Even before she met the red-headed royal, Markle was already what most would call a world traveler. She once worked as an intern for the US Embassy in Argentina, has visited Malta, Rwanda, a handful of countries in Europe, and quite a few other far-reaching locations prior to dating Prince Harry. As an actress, she also spent a lot of time flying around for various events, interviews, shooting Suits in Canada, etc. Needless to say, she’s probably got a good travel routine down!
As previously disclosed to Allure Magazine, Meghan swears by just one very simple item to keep her skin calm while traveling: tea tree oil. Markle stated: “The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all”. Sounds pretty great to me!
Upon further research into this magical little substance, I discovered tea tree oil acts as an antiseptic and can help keep germs at bay. It’s a great spot treatment for blemishes, disinfectant for bug bites and cuts, and keep it on-hand on flights. Apparently when you apply a small amount around your nostrils it can help keep germs from entering your sinuses! Genius. I found this small bottle on Amazon for under $8 – perfect for fitting in your purse or carry-on!
I’ll be going to the British Virgin Island’s in February, which will be the perfect time to test Meghan’s must-have out. If you’ve used it, would love to hear your thoughts!! Comment below with your experience using tea tree oil!
