How can I wash my face on the go?

Dr. Doris Day, MD
Make some “emergency cloths” by saturating soft washcloths with a combination of a non-rinse cleanser and a moisturizer and sealing them in zipper-style plastic bags. Keep them in your purse and use them on long airplane flights or anytime you’re truly too overwrought to do the whole nightly ritual. These emergency cloths are meant to be used within a few days to a week. After that, toss any unused bags and make a fresh batch. If you don’t have time to make your own, you can buy travel packs of pre-moistened towelletes that do not need to be rinsed of.  Olay Regenerist or Aveeno are two accessible drug store brands you can try.
