Planning on going to the beach this summer? Try out these helpful tips to have the best time possible.
Protect Your Skin
Reapply sunscreen constantly. Nothing makes a trip worse than getting a sun burn. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen on your children as well.
Protect Your Eyes
The sun can do much more harm to your eyesight than you think. Get yourself a nice pair of sunglasses for some style, as well as safety.
Protect Your Phone
The last thing you want is to be enjoying the sand and the water when a huge wave comes in and wrecks your whole setup of your things. Keep your phone in a sealed Ziploc bag to protect it from any sand or water.
It is easy to lose a lot of water when you are out in the sun all day. Be prepared and bring lots of water with you.
Put aloe into an ice tray to make aloe ice cubes. Use them on your burns when you get back from the beach that day to sooth your skin. Even if you don’t get burned, it is still good for your skin and feels nice too.
If you’re going out on a boat, consider attaching a cork to your keys so that they’ll float.
If you burn easily, or just don’t want to be in the sun for the full day on the beach, make sure you bring a beach umbrella or a big floppy hat works too.
If you have long hair, stock up on hair ties. They help get your hair off your back and neck which will keep you cool. They also prevent your hair from blowing all over your face in the wind.
Shampoo & Conditioner
If you’re just making a beach trip for the day and your beach has showers to wash the sand off at the dunes, bring shampoo and conditioner to make your ride home cleaner. Even if you are going for more than a day, pack extra shampoo and conditioner to get all the sand out of your hair.
