Pack These Top 10 Essentials For Your Next Trip to the Beach or Pool!
As temperatures soar, you want to cool off, and there’s no better place to do that than a trip to your local swimming hole. Being near water is not only good for you physically, but it’s also good for you mentally! So, reduce your stress and spend the day lounging by the beach, lake or pool!
To help get you on your way, we’ve put together the ultimate packing guide for your water adventure! Use this list every time you’re making a trip to the beach, lake or pool!
Whether it’s a one piece, a two piece, boy-short bottoms, swim trunks, or a rash guard, pack a swimsuit that fits your adventure and makes you feel like a rock star. Being comfortable and confident in your own skin can be difficult for everyone, but you are beautiful just the way you are! Remember that EVERY body is a beach body.
Towels are important for lots of reasons – you can use them for laying out, drying off, covering up, wiping away excess dirt and sand, or making a pillow! So make sure you take more than one and invest in a couple “beach” towels that tend to be larger and thinner than the ones you use in your bathroom.
We’ve said in a hundred times and we’ll say it again! Sunscreen is extremely important. It protects your skin from harmful UV rays and helps fight premature aging!
Put it on before you leave the house and reapply often.
Use a specific SPF lotion for your face to avoid breakouts and keep skin protected! Try our NuGlow Skincare DayTime Therapy with SPF 15!
And don't forget about your lips! Take along a SPF-infused lip balm.
Swimsuit cover-ups are essential. When you feel your skin starting to burn, even after reapplying sunscreen, throw on your cover-up to give your skin the extra protection it needs. It’s also great to have one handy in case you want to run over to the local ice cream shop!
Sunglasses are like sunscreen for your eyes! The sun’s harmful UV rays can negatively affect your eyes and the delicate skin around them. Invest in a set of big, dark glasses that cover a larger surface area and make sure they’re polarized to give you some extra protection while you’re in the sun!
Flip Flops / Shoes
Whenever you go to the beach or pool on a hot day, the ground can feel like it’s on fire and you can easily burn the soles of your feet! Plus, you never know what debris is lurking in the sand or grass! Protect your feet by wearing shoes or flip flops.
Snacks & Beverages
Dehydration and sun stroke can be serious, so make sure you hydrate, hydrate, hydrate when you’re out in the sun.
Food and water can be expensive if you purchase them from vendors. Plus, they don’t always offer the healthiest options. Save money and make healthy choices by bring your own snacks and beverages!
Our top choices would be water or iced green tea, and foods that help protect against sun damage, like watermelon, citrus, berries, tomatoes or red grapes. Make sure you keep your food and beverages chilled in a small cooler that you keep in the shade.
And, bring a small garbage bag to throw away your trash and reduce your impact on the environment!
Whether you like reading books or magazines, listening to podcasts, or playing sudoku, bring your own form of entertainment! There is nothing more relaxing that doing something you enjoy while lying next to the water and enjoying the sunshine!
Between the water, sand, dirt and sun, the beach, lake or pool are filled with things that can damage your phone. Protect it with a water-resistant pouch, like a Ziplock bag. It will keep your phone protected, allow you see it, and is still touch-sensitive so you don’t have to remove your phone from the bag to use it.
Also, take a battery extender in case you need an extra charge and won't have access to electricity!
The Perfectly Packed Bag
Find the perfect bag and keep it stocked in the trunk of your car. That way all you have to do is throw on your suit, grab your cooler and go!
