Got red, itchy eyes when you travel? Maybe it's the dryness inside the airplane or all the cleaning chemicals they use in airports and hotel rooms but either way, it's easy to end up with bloodshot eyes when traveling. Add to that all of the germs you might encounter, dry skin, and body aches… well, let's just minimize all of that! Make this DIY Travel Survival Kit to take on your next trip so you'll look and feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, no matter what the trip throws your way.
This week, we are headed to a conference here in Southern California for video creators. That means I'll be in a convention center with 30,000 screaming teenagers and staying 4 nights in a hotel room. Red eyes are just going to happen between the hotel room and the cold dry air in the convention center. I'm going to be meeting all kinds of successful video creators, sponsors, and friends and want to look and feel my best. After going to over 50 conferences and on multiple vacations, I've learned a thing or two about how to look and feel your best when traveling. I always make sure to bring Clear Eyes® on my trips. No matter how late I am out “networking” or how early I have to get up to catch my flight, I look and feel my best on my trips because of the DIY Travel Survival kit I bring with me. It's all about the prep!
How to make a DIY Travel Survival Kit
It's difficult to know what you might need on a trip until you need it. This DIY Travel Survival kit will help you be prepared for everything the trip might throw at you and minimize expensive, time consuming trips to the drug store during your vacation or work trip.
The most important part of the kit: Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™
Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ – this is the #1 most important part of this Travel Survival kit. No matter if I get 4 or 10 hours of sleep, I always wake up with red eyes when I travel. I get off an airplane and have red eyes. The change in climates can make me have red and itchy eyes. Getting up at 4 am to catch a flight will give me red eyes (no pun intended!). Even while camping, I get red eyes that water alot or are dry. And I know I am not alone. I see other people at conferences and on vacation with red, itchy eyes or watery eyes. We don't have to do that any more. Clear Eyes® is an essential part of my Travel Survival Kit and a staple in my toiletry bag. A quick stop at Target and you can pick up all of the supplies for this kit, including BOTH varieties of Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™.

Why choose Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™?
Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ is the first preservative free multi-dose eye drop available over-the-counter in the US. So how does it stay pure? The Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ bottle has a built-in purifying filter that keeps the bacteria out, so there is no need for preservatives in the formula itself. The multi-use bottle has over 220 drops for less than the price of 60 single use vials. The soft squeeze bottle is easy to control so you can be sure to get just one drop.
There are two varieties of Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ available, depending on the symptoms you're experiencing. Both Clear Eyes® for Dry Eyes and Clear Eyes® Multi Symptom are preservative free, which doctors recommended for dry eyes. Clear Eyes® for Dry Eyes provides up to 12 hours of comfort for dry eyes. Clear Eyes® Multi Symptom relieves red, burning, itchy, dry, irritated, gritty, or watery eyes for up to 12 hours. No matter which formula you choose, you can be confident in knowing that Clear Eyes® is the #1 brand of redness relief eye drop. I use it exclusively!
Here are some other items to consider putting into your survival kit (not all are pictured):
Tissues – you never know when there will be a spill, you need to sneeze, or someone next to you has a spill. A little pack of tissues can do alot.
Gum and Mints – if you're sitting close proximity to anyone, gum and mints are always a good idea. Feeling minty fresh is always a good thing!
Bag – you'll need a compact bag to hold all of the elements of the kit. Choose a bag with multiple sections so you can place wet items in one pocket and dry items in another or keep food separate from medications or cleaning wipes. If you plan to use the bag inside of a laptop bag, choose a bag with a slim design.
Antibacterial Hand Wipes – no one wants to go on a trip and catch a cold or get sick. I use anti-bacterial hand wipes before I eat and after shaking hands or touching surfaces like door handles or tray tables in airplanes. I haven't gotten a cold on a trip since I started diligently using these wipes as described here.
Antibacterial Cleaning Wipes – airplanes and hotel rooms are some of the most germ-ridden places you'll ever be. Use these wipes to clean arm rests and tray tables in airplanes, the toilet when using a public restroom, and generally any other surface that is gross. Again, let's not catch the flu or a stomach bug while on our trip.
Disinfectant Spray – you never know what has touched a surface before you were there. You might not be able to bring a spray like this on an airplane so be sure to check TSA regulations before packing it. But for road trips and hotel room stays, this spray is a great option. I spray any areas where germs might be lurking, such as bathroom surfaces, microphones (if I am speaking at an event), and sinks in hotel rooms.
Hand Lotion – the air inside airplanes is notoriously dry. Hotel rooms are cleaned with chemicals that make your skin dry. And the change in climate when you travel can cause dry skin. Carry a small bottle of lotion to moisturize your hands and arms so you aren't uncomfortable on the trip.
Snacks – I bring a small pack of beef jerky and a couple of protein bars with me just in case I get hungry and there is nowhere to eat.
Plastic Bag – keep a plastic zip top bag rolled up in the kit to put wet things into or separate items from one another. Save half of a protein bar or sandwich leftover from lunch in the bag. There are so many times having a plastic bag in my kit has saved me!
Extra Cash – you never know when the credit card machine will be down, the cab only takes cash, or you can't find an ATM. I keep a few ones, fives, a couple dollars in quarters, and a couple of twenty dollar bills rolls up in a little bag at the bottom of the travel kit for emergencies.
Medications – I keep a small pill box with a few essentials for travel such as a pain reliever or sinus medication for a runny nose. You can sometimes pick up small travel sized bottles of medications at the Pharmacy to take on your trip. If my feet or back hurt from the plane ride, it's nice to have a pain reliever ready.
Every time you travel, bring this kit with you. You'll be glad you did when you look fresh, with bright eyes and minty breath and everyone else looks, well, raggedy! The secret is in the Clear Eyes®.
