Health & Hygiene

1. Lightweight Sleep Sack

Hygiene problems in hotels are frequently exposed, and the unwashed or improperly cleaned sheets do have a strong irritation to the skin sometimes. Now I take along a light sleeping sack on every business trip. It includes a travel sheet and a sleeping bag, both of which are made from high-quality fabric, so it feels very soft. The liner comes with a stuff sack so it’s easy to carry and pack after use.

Measuring only 8 X 9 inches (ca. 20X23 cm) long when packed and weighing 1.2 pounds (0.54kg), which means taking up very little space in the suitcase. With it to protect you from unseen germs, allergens, and possible bed bugs, you can really relax and sleep in the hotel.

2. Zojirushi Travel Mug

It is necessary for you to stay hydrated at any time during business travel. The one I use is almost the simplest one, Zojirushi Stainless Steel Travel Mug. It will keep your beverages hot or cold for hours. The compact design takes minimal space while maximizing capacity. It features a safety lock to prevent accidental opening.

In order to easily put it in a backpack or even a briefcase, I chose 12-Ounce, When using it in practice, I found that the capacity is comfortable enough for both coffee and tea. What I want to emphasize is that the mug should be placed in a special or side bag of your backpack, not in the main bag along with other items, otherwise the surface may be scratched easily by a key or charger. This is exactly the mistake I have made.

3. TRAVANDO Hanging Toiletry Bag”FLEXI”

For the most part, I don’t trust the hygiene standards of hotel toiletries. It’s requisite to bring my own ones. I think it is easier to choose a travel toiletry bag, many products are suitable. I chose TRAVANDO Hanging Toiletry Bag“FLEXI mainly because it includes a detachable bag that I can only take with me in a backpack on short business trips. But when traveling for more than three days, bring the full set in a suitcase.

Its overall design is very thoughtful, reasonable, lightweight. With a smart hook, you can hang it on doorknobs, showers, hooks, and bars. It has 7 leak-proof travel bottles to fill up your own cosmetics (100ml max, meet boarding requirement). It’s really a good and loyal companion for your business trip.

4. ALASKA BEAR Natural Silk eye mask

At first, I only used the mask on the plane, then I sometimes used it in hotels, because the curtains in some hotels don’t shade the light very well, which can affect my sleep. Like buying other things, I checked many product reviews on Amazon and finally chose ALASKA BEAR Natural Silk eyemask. It really lives up to good feedback. Its silky material is quite comfortable. The concave pockets cupped away have plenty of space and don’t rub against your eyelids or lashes, The entire mask is ultra light and won’t cause any burden to you. The elastic belt holds the mask very well, even if you roll back and forth while sleeping, the mask won’t move or fall off.

The figure above is generated from the source code provided by Amazon, and it should be noted that the $19.9 price does not include the girl.

5. Philips Norelco PQ208/40 Travel Electric Razor

As for the choice of travel razors, I think the focus should be on portability, compact design (not easily damaged by extrusion). Since different countries may have different types of power outlets, battery operated(no charger required) is a better option. In addition, rotating blades usually shave cleaner than foil heads. And Philips Norelco PQ208 is a comprehensive good choice.

It requires two AA batteries, features smaller size, two independently-floating rotary heads (follow the curve of the face well) and durable, self-sharpening blades. Maybe it does not shave as cleanly as three-headed razors at home, however, it is still perfect enough for travel, considering the many other advantages.

6. Sun Bum Sunscreen Lotion

Travel usually means a lot of different things. No matter what type of travels you are embarking on, it is important to pay attention to UV protection outdoors. If it is on a plateau or mountain, UV protection is almost the top priority. Inadequate protection may lead to skin burns that are painful and take several days to recover. Apart from wearing protective clothing, hats and sunglasses, using a broad spectrum sunscreen, like Sun Bum Original Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion, is also extremely important.

It features wide applicability, broad spectrum UVA / UVB protection, and water resistant (80 Minutes). If you are engaged in technical activities, construction work or just leisure in the wild, this product is really very effective. In order to protect your face and any other exposed skin from the UV rays, you should apply sunscreen 30 minutes before any outdoor work, even in cold places. The only problem is that sometimes you have to put lotion into small bottle to meet aviation regulations.

7. Youphoria Outdoors Microfiber Quick Dry Travel Towel

Hotel hygiene has always been a vexing issue, in which towels are more annoying due to poor quality or repeated use, so it is necessary to carry your own towel. The Youphoria Outdoors Microfiber Travel Towel is made from absorbent microfiber, and it can hold up to five times its weight in water and dries up ten 10 times faster than a normal cotton towel. The fabric is also anti-microbial and won’t produce mildew or have odors after use.

There are three sizes: 20″ (50.8 cm)x 40″(101.6 cm), 28″ (71.12 cm)x 56″ (142.24 cm)or 32″(81.28 cm) x 72″(182.88 cm). Each travel towel comes with a convenient carry bag for traveling and a quick-snap hang loop for easy hanging on a towel rack, branch at a campsite, or even on your beach umbrella. In fact, if it is a short-term business trip, the minimum size (20″x 40″) is totally enough to use.
