Repeat after us: “When traveling, my carry-on is my lifeline.” No matter where you’re going, how far you’re flying, or how long your trip is, you’ll always want to have your bare necessities right at hand.  Checked-in luggage can be lost, or if you’re going baggage-free, you’re totally dependent on that handy-dandy, in-flight bag. And if you’re a female traveler, making sure you have all your essentials is, well…even more essential!

Luckily for you, we’ve put a lot of thought into what you should pack into that carry-on of yours, so you don’t have to. With these 5 must-haves in your bag, you’ll be ready to take on the world…or at least travel it, worry-free!

Travel-Sized Duplicates
That 3.4oz liquid limit...it's one of the most difficult to follow for many! Drugstores have many travel-sized products these days, but do they have your go-to? Lotion, perfume, moisturizer, toothpaste... the list goes on and on of essentials that you're likely to have a particular favorite of, and now you can take them all with you while you travel! Put them in a travel-friendly (and allowance compliant) container and take them with you to enjoy all your favorite bare necessities while you're traveling.
Makeup without the Bulk!
Carrying your makeup must-haves like liquid foundation, eyeshadow or concealer in a carry-on can get tricky. There's always the fear of spillage and what if it's over the 3.4 oz limit?! Not to mention, with all your different products, things can get bulky and heavy, fast! Save yourself a headache and use your old contact lens cases (or buy them at a drugstore if you don't wear contacts) as mini makeup containers! Pour your favorite foundation or any makeup essential into one of these and seal it tight. For extra security, put these into a transparent plastic bag and voila! You have a to-go make up holder that's compact and lightweight!
A Complete Outfit
Yes, socks, underwear, bra and comfortable footwear included...we're talking the whole nine yards! In the event that you lose your luggage, the last thing you need is to get stuck with just the clothes on your back. By packing a spare outfit, you can easily avoid purchasing more clothes or the discomfort of having to keep wearing the ones you have on for several days!
Female-Friendly First Aid Kit
C'mon ladies, we've all been there: you need a tampon, sunscreen, Advil, or a makeup wipe, and you need it ASAP. When you're traveling, one of the worst situations you can be in is to not have your feminine products right when you need them. While the usual first aid kits are, of course, important too, make yours extra helpful by packing it with all your feminine essentials, so you're prepared for every situation!
Petty Cash
In a group, alone, with a significant other...regardless of how you're traveling and whom you're traveling with, it's important to protect yourself from harmful situations. Tuck away a little petty cash into a spare pocket or pouch for emergencies. Use this money to grab a cab for when you think it's unsafe to walk or travel via public transit, or use it for any sudden medical needs. Think of this cash as an invisible safety net and a precaution you'll thank yourself for when it gets you out of harm's way.!
