Going on a sunny vacation with friends this spring break? Mexico? Punta Cana? Anywhere warm?? Here's a list of easy things to forget in the midst of the excitement, but they're essential:
1. Bathing suits
You better not forget these. Pack at least two or three because ya never know!
The sun can take a toll on your face and eyes-- bring a hat to give it a break and block the rays.
If you're going somewhere near the equator, it's smart to invest in a more expensive sunscreen that is sure to protect your skin. After all, the sun is just ~stronger~ down there.
4. Face masks
Skin care is super important on sunny vacations. Face masks are helpful, relaxing, and fun too!
You'll need them for the beach, but probably won't want to wear them on the airplane...so don't forget to pack them in your suitcase!
Bring a good book to let your mind wander while your laying on the beach or by the pool.
Sunglasses are super easy to forget, but they're essential to any vacation in the sun! Don't be stuck squinting.
Bring your regular wall charger and a portable one to bring to the beach and anywhere else you venture out to while traveling.
If you burn even after putting on sunscreen, have some aloe to help yourself out a bit. Moisturizer is important too! Use it every morning and night if you can.
10. Beach bag
You'll definitely need something to carry all your stuff in to the beach! Designate a bag that you don't mind getting a little sandy.
Leaving the country? THIS. IS. IMPORTANT. I mean, you can't even leave the airport without it...
12. Makeup bag and wipes
Although you'll be relaxing and all natural in the sun during the day, the night time could get fun and fancy. Don't forget your make up bag so you can do yourself up and the wipes to take it all of later when you hit the sheets.
13. Lip care products
Chapstick is crucial (with SPF of course)! Keep your lips healthy and happy.
Sometimes it's just nice to have your own beach towel if you have room in your suitcase!
Sickness is super common on vacation-- especially if you're in a new country or on a different time zone. Advil is crucial and hangovers are real.
