It’s beach season and packing up your bag to catch some sun and enjoy the cool breeze off of the ocean is on everyone’s minds. Forgetting something at home can be disastrous if it is something like your sunscreen or simply annoying if it is that extra towel that you need at the end of the day. If you pack your bag with preparation in mind then you will have everything you need for the perfect beach day.
As was mentioned above, sunscreen is of the utmost importance. You will most certainly sweat off some of it and if you plan on getting in the water then reapplication is a must. The sun can be incredibly damaging to your skin so protecting it is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Be sure to grab facial sunscreen as well as sunscreen for your body so that you are fully protected. If you have thinner hair or an area of your scalp that is susceptible to the sun make sure you don’t forget to rub a little bit on the exposed part.
Next you want to think about your accessories. Sunglasses are a must to protect your eyes. Don’t forget to bring enough towels for everyone, but also bring an extra towel or two as well in case you need it. If you are going to want to listen to music bring a portable speaker that will connect with your phone or if you plan on reading a book or magazine stash that in your bag as well.
Finally, bring some bottled water and a few snacks for yourself. Although there may be places to eat along the beach, you never know when you will get a bit hungry or thirsty. It’s nice to know that you have refreshments available if the need arises.
Now that your bag is ready to go, head out to the beach and enjoy the beautiful weather. Nothing beats a summer day by the ocean, relaxing and being outside!
