5 Beach Bag Essentials

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?”


Lip Balm

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.


Waterproof Pouch

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!).
