Finally, summer is here. We always want to remember every summer so we plan different activities. The famous thing to do during summer is going to the beach. Beach comes first to our list because it is indeed very hot and nothing freshens us up like cooling down in the surf. After rounding up our buddies, and securing our reservation, it is time to pack up.

So what do we need? Here are the beach essentials that you should never forget.

Swimwear – There is nothing wrong if you want to be fashionable in the beach. If you really want to swim with ease and enjoy the water, you should definitely look for that perfect bathing suit. Bikinis are very popular nowadays, but one-piece suites can also work to great effect. For men, swimming trunks or beach shorts will do. Choose footwear that is light and easy to dry.  You can add other accessories like stylish bags, hats and bangles if you want.

Sunscreen – Since it is hot, we should secure lotions with high SPF level. Sunscreens or lotions will help regulate the effect of the sun in our skin. If taken, it will reduce the redness of the skin or sun burns. Sunscreens can also lessen the chances of skin cancer.  Towels to dry our body should be prepared as well. Aside from that, umbrellas and sunglasses will make things easier and comfortable for you.

Water – With all the fun you’ll be having on the waves, you might not notice yourself getting thirsty. Be careful about this because you just might get dehydrated. Make sure to bring lots of bottled water and always have one nearby. Don’t substitute water with alcoholic and caffeinated drinks as these won’t really be effective on quenching thirst and may even make you disoriented.

Medical kit – Heat related illnesses are inevitable especially if we are not careful enough. Illnesses are serious enough for us to be afraid but it doesn’t mean hiding in the house until the end of summer. If it can’t be helped, there are precautions that we should remember to keep the effects minimal. Common illnesses include heat exhaustion, head edema and heat stroke. Since we cannot foresee things, it is better to bring medical kit. In case of bruises and wounds, bandage and disinfectants can make a big difference.

Food – Swimming can be starving sometimes that is why bringing of food is a good idea. You can bring actual food or chips if you want. If you have no time to prepare, beach resorts have their own kitchen. All you have to do is order. They have a wide selection of foods that you don’t usually eat every day. Seafood platters and other meals are offered.

Camera – Every good memory should be captured. Never forget to bring your camera so that if you want to revisit your memories, you can always check your files or pictures. You don’t need to bring a high-end camera, what’s important is to simply record your experience. Fortunately, today’s phones are equipped with cameras with excellent resolutions.

Summer is the hottest of all the season and every year we experience it. Regardless of the country or culture, men, women and even children look forward to summer. One reason is that school breaks and public holidays usually fall under summer. Instead of staying at home, it is best to enjoy summer while it lasts.

Getting the proper attire. There are many ways to enjoy summer if we really want to make the most out of it but before anything else, it is imperative to look for the suitable attire. There are other people that consider this unimportant but if you really want to have a good time, it is best to look for clothing that is light and comfortable. Footwear is also a factor. Find shoes that are comfortable to wear especially if you have a lot of walks planned.

Accessorize yourself. When you go out, never forget your sun glasses to protect your eyes from dirt, dust and heat. If want to spice up your outfit, you can add accessories. This is not a problem because a wide variety of bangles or bracelets, head gears and necklaces are available in the market. Never forget your umbrella of course.

Don’t forget protection. Experts are saying that the application of SPF (Sun Protection Factor) lotions to your skin will make a big difference. Sunscreens are very helpful because they lessen the chances of our skin suffering from sunburns or worst, skin cancer. Most importantly, always bring water. Despite all the recommendations given above, there are still many people who are afraid to go out for the fear of exhaustion and heat stroke.
