Alright party animals – who is heading to the beach for Spring Break? We know you’re excited and while you have probably already thought about the outfits you are bringing, we have 10 Spring Break essentials that you can’t forget!
It may not be the coolest item to pack, but sunscreen is a must-have for Spring Break. Not only is protecting our skin in the sun important, but it will save you from getting burnt. That will make for a long night of applying aloe. Not to mention that sun protection helps with premature aging.
In addition to wearing sunscreen, it’s always a good idea to pack a hat. Do not underestimate the power of the sun, especially if you have been indoors most of the winter. These hats are cute accessories too!
You probably already have really nice sunglasses that you love. If you want to continue to love them, we suggest grabbing a less expensive pair of sunglasses for Spring Break. If you lose them in the ocean, you won’t feel the need to go diving.
Chances are that you will partake in drinking and laying out in the sun while on vacation. No worries, we aren’t here to judge you, but we are here to keep you hydrated! Hydrate and rehydrate after a day in the sun and a night of drinking – SO important! Bring along a reusable water bottle to have water accessible at all times, especially on the beach.
Yes, baby wipes. You get home super late and just feel like passing out – but you are still wearing a full face of makeup. Wipe for the win! These also come in handy if you need to freshen up before heading to the beach and you don’t feel like taking a shower or to sanitize your hands while on the beach.
Listening to the waves and wind while laying on the beach is one of the best things. However, there are always groups blaring music and you may not want to hear it. Bring a bluetooth speaker to control the music of your group. It’s always better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
Okay so maybe this one is for the ladies. Guys, you will have to take advantage of your girlfriend’s beach bag to throw your phone and ear buds in. A bag is a Spring Break essential because you need a place to keep your things together and away from the sand. You don’t want to use your regular purse for this, you will need a bit more space.
Whether you are exploring a new area, going on excursions or just hanging out on the beach, comfy shoes are a must-have. There is nothing worse than walking around while your shoes are killing you. It’s vacation – explore in comfort!
Ever been sick while on vacation? It’s not fun. Not only does it make you miserable, but it can have the same effect on those you are on vacation with. Let’s keep everyone’s immune systems and moods in high spirits. A good Vitamin C supplement can do this – great as a preventative measure or if you begin to feel under the weather.
If you are headed to the beach with a big group of friends, it is likely that you are expected to stay up late. You are going out on the town, but can’t stop yawning. In order to keep your energy going, give yourself a little boost. Packing a few energy shots for you or your friends comes in handy.
