Summer is almost around the corner and everyone is going gaga every time beach is being talked about. Shopping malls had started to put mannequins wearing summer outfit on display. Not only that, in a few more days there would be halo-halo stands along the streets. But are you ready to travel and hit the beach? Before you pack your things, make sure you have the most important things to be brought when traveling.
Be sure to use a product that has a high SPF content. The higher the better. It blocks the harmful rays of the sun and reduces the risk of skin damage to your skin. Apply this to your skin 30 minutes before swimming and re-apply after 2 hours or so.
Not all sunglasses has UV protection that’s why you have to be careful in choosing the right one. You can buy one as cheap as P35 but there’s no guarantee that it really has the protection that you need. It would be better to invest in sunglasses because you can use this for a long period of time. You don’t like to have wrinkles right?!
As the sun gets hotter, you need a hat or umbrella to protect yourself from the scorching heat of the sun. You can’t stay in the water for the whole day that’s why a head cover is so essential to enjoy the beach without getting sunburns.
In going to the beach, you have to be comfortable with your footwear. Wearing flip-flops is the best option. Why? It’s not hard to walk on the sand, you won’t get blisters and it won’t get broken even if you soak it in the water for so long.
If you don’t need it to cover your body in sexy bikini after swimming, it can be used as extra beach blanketor a towel for a quick sand dusting. I prefer sarong over towel because the former is lighter than the latter. ;)
Things can happen anywhere, anytime. It is better to be prepared to any untoward incident that might happen in your vacation. Bring paracetamol, medicine for cough, colds & lbm, band-aid, thermometer alcohol and betadine.
Memories last forever and it would be even much better if you can document the fun you had in your vacation. The pictures that you would take would remind you forever of those sweet memories. Take care of your gadget by bringing plastic as cover-up.
And of course drinking WATER as often as you can would keep you away from dehydration. Always remember to TRAVEL SAFE and LIGHT. ;)
