Every time I hit the road I’m faced with a dilemma: Do I let my skin go to pot and wash my face with the hotel soap or do I pack my big-momma facial cleanser and cross my fingers that it won’t spill en route? Thanks to my latest product discovery (ready-to-moisten facial cleansing wipes), I’m catch-22-free. 

If you haven’t already heard of these products, it’s time to take a stroll through the aisles of Eckerd. Just about every skin product company, from Dove to Neutrogena, now puts out a pack of dry cloths (think travel pack of baby wipes sans water), equipped with the right stuff for your delicate facial skin. Light as a feather (hello, luggage weight restrictions!) and 100 percent spillproof (adios, FAA liquid restrictions!), these babies foam up like champs when held under the faucet. Then when your face is squeaky clean, they’re tossed in the trash. Sometimes the simplest inventions make the most sense. ($3 – $8 at www.cvs.com)
