It’s super-tempting to race out the door as soon as you get
an invite to hang around waterside. But, wait! Take a second to toss a few must-haves
in your beach (or pool) bag:
Duh, right? Still, don’t skimp on the
SPF. Slather up, because
looking like a lobster is never in style. Apply generously and often.
The sun is harmful to more than your skin. Protect your eyes
with some big movie star–style sunglasses. “Can I have your autograph?”
Burnt lips hurt. Find a lip balm that packs at least 25 SPF
to keep your kisser hydrated and protected.
It’s always good to have a few
tampons on hand, even
if you’re nowhere near your time of the month. Friends share.
Even if you’re at the pool, some stuff just can’t get wet,
like phones and tampons. Keep them sealed tight in a small, waterproof bag (even
if it’s just a sealed freezer bag!).
