Meghan Markle's $7 beauty secret from Australia

ACTOR, activist and (likely) duchess-to-be, the world cannot get enough of Meghan Markle's style must-haves, a craze that's not slowing down anytime soon ahead of her May 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.

With much humanitarian and diplomatic travel in Markle's future as she becomes a member of the royal family - most likely as a duchess, rather than a princess - there's evidently one beauty item she won't venture without, Fox News reports.

In a recently resurfaced interview with Allure, Markle said that she values her go-to travel product for its versatility.

"The one thing that I cannot live without when I'm travelling is a small container of tea tree oil," the former Suits star revealed in 2014.

"It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it's my little cure-all," she said.

"It's inexpensive, it's small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time."

Yep, good old Aussie tea tree oil

According to the experts, the former lifestyle blogger is spot on. Tea tree oil is said to be beneficial for treating blemishes, insect bites and cuts, as well as serving as an antiseptic to keep germs away.

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of a myrtle tree species native to Queensland and NSW. The affordable oil retails in Australia for as little as $7 for a 15ml bottle.

"My mum was a travel agent, so off-the-beaten-path travel has always been a big part of my life," Markle added in the interview, further stating that "my heart is in travel" too.

There's no doubt that there is much jetsetting ahead for Markle, as she weds the fifth-in-line to the British throne.
