If you've noticed tons of turquoise-colored products in the TSA lines lately, you're not imagining things: TULA is taking the travel beauty world by storm.

Travel can be stressful to the skin, and TULA, a probiotic skin care line created by Dr. Roshini Raj, a gastroenterologist (with a noticeably glowing complexion), seems to have all the answers. Dry skin? Tired eyes? Sunburn? Dull complexion? Chapped lips? No problem. Airplane cabins, crowds, jet lag, and even dehydration are no match for TULA.

Probiotics are not just for your gut, it turns out, and TULA also adds superfoods as even when you do opt for that in-flight glass of wine or salty snack, you'll know your skin is soaking in the nutrients the rest of your body might be lacking.

"We focus on being healthy, not perfect," TULA says on its website, "and on empowering everyone to feel confident in their skin." As on-the-go travelers and as women in general, that's a message we can get behind.

Here, just a few of our favorite TULA products at Nordstrom. Do yourself a favor and fill your toiletry bag with them before they sell out.

Called "the best moisturizer ever" by shoppers, this all-the-time cream is clinically proven to improve skin's appearance, and it'll leave you feeling smooth and dewy, even after a long-haul flight.

Cooling, hydrating, and easy to use (and pack) in stick form, this balm helps with puffiness caused by exhaustion, allergies, jet lag, and more. Shoppers say they see a difference within minutes.

Buy it:

Non-greasy, brightening, and most importantly, offering broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, this sunscreen will singlehandedly replace your makeup routine on beach, pool, and hike days on your next trip.

Have you ever traveled and not ended up with dry lips? If your answer, like us pre-TULA, is no, here's your fix. Thanks to peptides and fruit oils and extracts, this balm is nourishing, smoothing, and even plumping — all while leaving you with a sheer, glossy look.
