What to Take to the Beach

September 26, 2011

Yes, summer is on its way, and if you are going to the beach you will need to take a number of important items. The following is a list of all the critical things you need to have at the ready to make the most of your day on the coast.

Everybody needs sunscreen these days, whether you’re young or old, fair or dark. The thing you need to look out for with sunscreen is the SPF rating, this is important. In particular, you should make sure that it has a high SPF rating, because this provides more protection.

Sunglasses are another vital item, particularly if you plan on bathing in the sun all day. Any quality pair of sunglasses will provide you with UV protection, this is essential to protect your eyes.

No matter what pair you end up getting, you should have them on the whole time you are exposed to the sun to ensure eye protection. The last thing you want is to do some long term injury to your eyes because you forgot to wear them.

Another thing you will need is some kind of sunburn ointment whenever you are at the beach. You never know, even though you are protect, you could still get burnt.

The thing is, the quicker you apply these sunburn ointments, the better they can work. Even if you don’t have one, you can apply many other home-based remedies like aloe vera.

Another thing to watch out for is making sure you have enough water. Sunshine causes perspiration and a day at the beaches will draw a lot of fluid out of your body. Let’s face it, you don’t want to get sun stroke just because you did not drink enough water.

Lastly, you need to bring enough towels, not just for after swimming but to shade yourself too. They can be a real life saver if you don’t have any other cover and the sun is too hot, they can be turned into a temporary shade really easily.
