Niki Leondakis, the stylish CEO of Commune Hotels & Resorts, has the 24-hour business trip down to a science. She reveals her carry-on musts.

1 House of Creed Royal Water “The peppermint-infused citrus scent is refreshing after long flights.” $290.

2 Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser: “A face wash that multitasks (like me): antioxidants to soothe; vitamin C to hydrate; and grapefruit extracts to energize.” $9.

3 Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hair Spray: “It provides incredible hold and has UV filters to protect color.” $12.

4 Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Replenishing Hand Cream: “I handle a lot of paperwork in-flight; this keeps my hands from drying out.” $15.

5 Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35: “Three skin-care products in one, it moisturizes, illuminates, and protects.” $15.

6 Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Peach Absolut: “Hydration and a touch of color—the perfect pick-me-up.” $46.

7 ML Collection by Mighty Leaf Tea: “I make a cup as soon as I take my seat on the plane—Chamomile Citrus to relax and Ginger Twist to ward off the chill.” $16 for 15.

8 Giovanni Lavender Calm Sanitizing Towelettes: “I’m a bit of a germophobe; these disinfect tray tables, remotes, and hands.” $12.

9 Perfumeria Gal Red Currant Lip Balm: “I love the pretty vintage-inspired tins from this Spanish brand.” $6.50.

10 Zoya in Ryan: “Nontoxic and long-lasting, so I don’t have to worry about chipped polish abroad.” $9.
