The Best Tips for Grooming When You Travel

—Josh Lawson

Eric is back to tell you about his top five grooming travel hacks. As of this video he just received his Diamon Medallion Status on Delta, so he flys quite a bit. Over all that travel time, he's learned a few things.

1. All-in-One Soap

This is Eric's favorite hack. He's using a Beardbrand prototype for all-in-one soap. He enjoys it because he can use it in his hair, for his beard, and on his skin. In addition to that, it isn't a liquid, so you don't have to worry about TSA confiscating it. You can just toss it in your carry-on or checked back without fear of his leaking everywhere.

2. Two Dopp Bags

You may be thinking that everyone already has a Dopp Bag. Some people may call it a grooming bag or toiletry bad, but they are all the same thing. What you need to do is get a second one though! You have your normal bag that you keep in your bathroom at home that has your fullsize toothpaste and other products you use. Your travel bag will need the same things, but in a size that is more travel friendly.

3. Liquids in a Ziplock or Taped Shut

The air pressure is going to be changing as you fly. This can cause some of the caps to your products to fly off. Then it just goes everywhere. By keeping them contained you can prevent it from going all over your clothes or the rest of your Dopp Bag.

4. Emergency Supply of Items

You want to make sure you have an emergency supply of items in your carry-on that can get you through a night or two. A few things keep handy are deodorant, a toothbrush, and maybe your retainer or medical stuff you may need. You never know what can happen when you travel, so it's always reassuring to keep a few items handy in case your luggage gets lost.

5. Wash Rag

Some cultures are different than others, but in America if you go to a hotel or an AirBnb they will always have these available for use. If you travel internationally, you may need to bring your own. The number you bring is completely up to you, depending how frequently you shower.

Those are Eric's top five travel hacks, but if he left something out and you want to share your tips feel free to leave a comment!
