I tend to catnap on long trips and usually wake up with contact lenses as dry as the Sahara. A couple of drops of this Visine, made especially for contact lens wearers, lubricates and refreshes my dry eyes. Plus, the bottle is so handy I can carry it in my purse on the plane or in the car, and once I'm at my destination it stores easily in my pocket.
I don't know what the scientific explanation is, but a change in altitude or climate causes dry, dry, skin, doesn't it? Since I live in sea-level Los Angeles, even a simple trip to Palm Springs will have my skin begging for hydration. I love this rich Bath & Body Works Hand Cream, plus the Midnight Pomegranate scent is so seductively sweet.
I love to stimulate my brain with a good read on a long trip. Cross Realities by Rickey Teems is a real page-turner about one family's struggle to stay together, stay alive, and keep God first - not an easy feat in the rough streets of L.A., especially when one brother is so heavily involved in the street life. Will the family be able to save him, or will his gang-entrenched lifestyle lead him to destruction?
If the name looks familiar it's because the author is my super-talented big brother!
