As you pack for your honeymoon, it’s important to remember the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 3-1-1 rule: 3.4 ounces of a liquid, gel, or cream in a one-quart Ziploc bag per one person. Which means it can be tough to look your best during the flight with all of your favorite go-tos stuck in the baggage compartment.

No worries. Here are a few tiny treasures for skin and hair that we covet during travel time. Looking good is just an overhead bin away.

Alterna’s Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo ($12, 1.5 oz.): This mini-version of the popular dry shampoo is perfect for aprés-flight touchups. It absorbs oil and product build-up, and the mango coconut scent has “honeymoon” sprayed all over it.

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel ($78, 1 oz.): Since flights are all about staying hydrated (yes, we’ll have another bottled water), this clear gel is the perfect boost for your skin with hyaluronic acid to help with moisturizing tired skin.

Go Smile Jet Set Travel Kit ($12): Smile pretty with this on-the-go answer to fresh breath. The pack comes with a foldup toothbrush and tubes of Refresh (an energizing mint flavor) and Relax (calming lavender, chamomile, and vanilla) toothpastes.

Bobbi Brown Empties Kit ($15): Trips are all about organization and portability. This set of lightweight bottles and jars lets you DIY your skincare favorites into a 0.1 oz. jar, two 0.24 oz. jars, 1 oz. bottle, and 0.5 oz. bottle. It also makes life easy with a plastic funnel, plastic spatula, and 10 self-adhesive labels.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water ($16, 1 oz.): All you need is a quick mist, and your skin is refreshed with a blast of hydrating electrolytes. It’ll also keep your makeup in place, for when you deplane and re-do your face.
