Jo Malone body creme

When it comes to packing, less is always more – thanks to the airlines and their mean-spirited luggage restrictions. But there are some essentials – not just sunscreams – that definitely deserve some room in the case.

Philip Kingsley Swimcap, €21

When it comes to protecting your locks from sun, chlorine and salt water, you won't do better than this cream, which was actually designed for the US Olympic synchronised swimming team. Use on wet hair.

Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint Body Creme, €65

Any qualms about the price can be assuaged by the fact that it's highly (and gorgeously) fragranced so will happily double-job as a perfume. It has a very nourishing formula which will be much appreciated by sun-dried skin.

Human + Kind Day + Night Cream, €23.95

You won't have to sacrifice strappy sandals for skincare if you pack this truly nourishing cream, which is happy to get to work day or night on face, neck and décolletage. Gentle enough to use in the sensitive under-eye area, it's chock-full of avocado, rosehip and ultra-healing aloe vera among other good things, and provides a great moisture boost to parched skin.

Neal's Yard Organic Facial Wipes, €7.20

Wipes aren't a year-round substitute for cleanser, but we space-stressed packers can definitely get away with using these for a week or two. Made from 100pc biodegradable cotton, they're suitable for vegans and packed with soothing aloe vera, calming lavender and antioxidant white tea.

Origins Leg Lifts! €26.50

Video of the Day

This chilling emulsion helps even the heaviest legs to feel light and hydrated, but use this before bedtime to loosen and relax muscles and wake up to soft skin. Even short-hop flights can leave you feeling parched and puffy, with swollen legs, particularly if they're denim-clad.

Apply in upward strokes before boarding and at least a second time while flying. It's heavily scented.
