By Berit Baugher for Fathom | There's nothing like a 15-hour flight to make you feel the full effects of aging 15 hours (or years). Cramped seats, dry air, noisy and nosy neighbors. It can be hard to relax. We're taking back our air time with TSA-friendly products made for personal pampering on the go. Add a glass of cucumber water, a little Enya, and you're on your way to a calm, relaxing — and dare we say — indulgent ride.

A TSA-friendly container of our favorite multipurpose beauty product.
