No matter where you go this summer, remember to pack sunblock with an SPF of 15 or higher. In case you do suffer from sunburn or windburn, aloe vera gel helps soothe the pain, as well as heal damaged skin. Use it as an overall moisturizer for your body and face.
Anxiety, tension, or sheer excitement from your travels may leave you unable to relax or sleep. Nature offers a treasure trove of safe herbal relaxants, such as passion flower, kava, chamomile, and linden flowers. Try a nightly travel ritual of tea made with a blend of these herbs.
In addition, you can ease a stiff neck with an inflatable neck pillow; shut out light and other distractions with an eyebag filled with hulled buckwheat and scented with lavender; and use a gel-filled eye mask (hot or cold) to reduce swelling brought on by lack of sleep, flying, or dehydration.
