Travel exhilarates the senses. While it is always fun to book the trip, when it comes time for packing, items can easily be forgotten. There is always a list of things you wished you would have remembered to bring on vacation. Feeling safe and comfortable is a vital component to a great travel experience. Whether touring Europe, playing on the beach, or enduring a long flight, this year travel with a sense of security and well-being with these seven piece-of-mind travel accessories.

1- Lexli Sunscreen – “Did you pack the sunscreen? No, I thought you did.” How often has that been the question asked on vacation. Keep your skin safe from the sun, no matter what the temperature may be at your destination, sunscreen is always important. Large, bulky, and aerosol type cans are not ideal to pack. Discover this 4oz bottle that is made with 99.9% professional grade aloe. Not only does it work, it is good for your skin and easy to pack. (Also a 2018 Aestheticians Choice Award Winner)

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
