With any luck this will be our last segment of Motel Living: a guide to better living in makeshift housing. When you are Motel Living it’s important to have beauty products that can do double duty and fit a wide range of weather conditions and situations. Packing a moisturizing, clarifying mask can go a long way toward keeping your skin from looking drawn and haggard when you’re jet lagged, over-caffeinated and running on too little sleep, but if there’s no more room in your carry on, try this tip: empty about five packets of sugar (there should be some near the coffee/tea tray) into the motel lotion. Smooth onto your face, exfoliating lightly, and rinse off. Et voila! Soft and smooth skin! I also find volumizing dry shampoo and a mini straightener very useful (mine came in a heat-resistant pouch that I used as an evening clutch one time in a pinch. It got compliments. I’ve also used it to iron a hemline and cuffs). Finally, Origins Modern Friction is magic on angry travel skin.
