“Sunscreen is the name of the game, but I think it’s also really important to find products that are not poisonous to the world we live in,” Nyong’o told The New York Times in an interview. “I carry calendula ointment, which is a good healer for burns, scrapes, scars. I had a terrible sunburn and the oil cured me of it in just one night. I swear by it. I guess that’s really the one thing I wouldn’t travel without.”

Pure calendula oil is great for moisturizing dry, chapped, and split skin, and is a natural antiseptic, which can help with healing of minor cuts and bug bites, according to amazon.com. The multi-purpose oil also helps with pore detoxification and toning and has anti-inflammatory properties that can help lessen swelling. The pure, natural product contains no additives, chemicals, or artificial preservatives and is non-GMO, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.
