      The astronauts can take up whatever they like – they have their own personal allowance so this is normally included 🙂

      I suppose you could use any so long as it doesn’t cause a problem with the air systems or smell really strong maybe? I am not an expert in this area though 😛 Julia’s answer looks good 🙂

      I’m not sure either. But if I could bring something, I’d probably keep it simple – like lightly scented cleansing face wipes. Otherwise I imagine washing soap off your face is a bit tricky in space.

      Also, it might be worth saying that astronauts probably wouldn’t take many beauty products beyond what’s needed for clean and healthy skin! There is no need for make-up there 🙂
