"I'm not allowed to show my skin in certain Muslim countries, but that doesn’t mean I don’t take care of it.” Globecircling photojournalist Jean Chung, who captures images of war-ravaged regions for publications like the L.A. Times, Le Figaro, and Der Speigel, also thinks that being in a combat zone “doesn’t give you license to look stressed out. I’m always meeting editors and potential clients, and I have to make a good impression."
Currently stationed in Kabul but regularly deployed all over the Middle East and Asia, Korean-born Chung never travels light. Routinely, she lugs around multiple bags of skincare and makeup. "The places where the big news is happening tend to be deserts, whose conditions are tough on your looks,” she says. “The products I carry are all critical to my well-being. And if everyone thinks I’m much younger than 36, that’s OK, too."

MESH BODY SPONGE It’s not heavy to carry, and it really enhances my whole bathing experience.

Shiseido makes lots of products for Asian women who like lightening their skin tone. My mom collects samples and gives them to me, and I get addicted. Actually, she’s a big inspiration. She turns 60 this year, and she looks 40! She takes two hours to get ready every morning; I only take one-and-a-half.
CLINIQUE MOISTURE SURGE EXTRA THIRSTY SKIN RELIEF AND REPAIRWEAR DAY SPF 15 INTENSIVE CREAM I am constantly in airports and do a lot of duty-free shopping—I wouldn’t be able to afford everything otherwise. Clinique is affordable and works well with my skin type.
NIVEA Q10 ADVANCED WRINKLE REDUCER DAY CREME SPF 8 My mom got me hooked on this, too. She saw an ad for it in a magazine when I was abroad. So I immediately went to the drugstore to get it and have been using it ever since.
