Forbes: Family Travel Essentials For A Stress-Free Summer

Pack Emergency Swim: If your kids are like mine, they need to be swimming as soon as they get anywhere. Luggage never arrives and room are never ready, so throw a simple bathing suit in your carry-on. While your little ones strip down to their skivvies, you'll be sitting pretty in the Mikoh Las Palmas onepiece. It's a universally flattering silhouette that offers just the right amount of coverage while you're fishing your kids out of the deep end.

Soothe Yourself: You want to relax on board yet alcohol worsens jetlag and other effects of a longhaul flight. Enter cannabidiol - the beloved nonsychoactive molecule that will make you feel better about schlepping two kids across the world. CBD stimulates the body's own endocannabinoid system, which lessens anxiety, reduces tension and relieves pain. I love Vertly, a plant-based skincare line founded by Claudia and Zander Gladish. Their luxurious lotions and lip butters are handcrafted using ethically-sourced formulations hand-poured in small batches to ensure freshness and quality. Housed inside a chic white tin, the hemp-infused lip balm is discreet, stylish and will blend in with the rest of your skincare. For post-travel aches and pains, try Lord Jones Pain & Wellness Body Pure CBD lotion. It's formulated with a natural agent that creates a cooling sensation upon contact.

You Do You: Don't wait until you get home to take care of yourself. April Gargiulo, founder of Vintner's Daughter recently launched a travel sized option of the game-changing, performance-driven serum. This mother of two gets that family travel is all about keeping things easy, and after a red-eye flight or six hour drive, a simple application of this botanical serum is all you need to reenergize your complexion. It's healthy, radiant skin in a simple step. Now, pour a glass or two of Pinot Grigio and usher in summer vacation like the rockstar parent you are.
