MY TOP TRAVEL ESSENTIALS FOR A BEACH VACATION


Are you planning to have a beach vacation soon? Then I hope, this post would come in handy for you. During my recent trip to Goa, I noticed that even after using so many SPF-enriched products and wearing protective things, my skin got badly tanned. I wonder what would have happened to me if I hadn’t used those stuff! Of course, I’d have got SUNBURNED(not tanned)!!




Anyways, enough of my ranting, let’s jump into the topic straight away. Here, I have tried to compile a list of skincare and other stuff which I think we should have/carry while travelling around beaches. Apart from beach dress, flip flops, Jewelries, sarongs, and a big Tote Bag, I am going to write about other essentials in this post. These are…
  1. Skincare products: These include (a) Sunscreen with SPF 50 or above, (b) SPF-enriched moisturizer (c) Body lotion (d) Lip balm with SPF 15 or above (e) Toner/ face mist (f) Hand and nail cream (g) Blotting papers (h) Face wash.
  2. Makeup products: I prefer less makeup while heading out for a beach day out but for night parties we need to put on a little makeup. So I usually carry these items- (a) BB cream/ foundation (b) Face powder SPF-enhanced (c) Lipsticks (d) Makeup remover (e) Waterproof Eyeliner (f) Waterproof Mascara (g) Kajal. I would also suggest bringing in your favorite lip gloss & eye shadows.
  3. Hair-care Products: Most essential items include (a) Deep nourishing shampoo (b) Deep nourishing conditioners (c) Leave-in serum (d) Dry shampoo and (e) Swim cap.
  4. Sunglasses: All you need are gorgeous sunnies to sport your beach look as well as to protect the sensitive eyes. No one forgets this actually :D 
    Soothing sunnies
  5. Hats: We love beautiful floppy hats, don't we? Apart from adding beauty, hat also protects our face and hair from sun damage. You can carry scarves also; they too serve as a protective agent.

  6. Wet Wipes: Another important item to be included here. Yes, Wet tissues help wipe all the dirt, sweat or literally anything in a jiffy off the face. I found them really helpful, so thought to mention here.
    Kara Wet wipes
  7. Hand Sanitizer: If you are like me, a hygiene freak, then this is a must-have in your travel kitty. I always carry hand sanitizer with me to wash my hands before touching my skin or food items when I am roaming around. So, I would recommend everyone to make this item your travel companion.
    Instant Hand Sanitizer
  8. Aloe-Vera Gel: I can’t thank enough of this beauty. I would recommend everyone to bring in this super power natural beauty gel. It helps to tame the skin irritation, soothes the heat rashes as well as prevents sun damage. I vow to it! Keep aloe-vera gel in the refrigerator and slather on your skin once you come back or you can also apply this to get instant relief from sunburn. You would surely feel the difference, trust me.

  9. First Aid Kit: Which includes (a) Bandage (b) Pain relief gel (c) prescribed medicines.

  10. Other Essentials: In addition to these, my beach bag contains (a) few zip lock bags to prevent phones and other electronic devices from water damage (b) books to read (c) Torch for late night walk along the beach (in case your phone does not have this feature) (d) Water bottles (e) Pen and notebook (f) Wide toothed comb (g) Fragrance (h) Headphones (i) Mint (j) Travel tickets and ID cards.

I hope, I have mentioned about all the essential things for a beach vacay. If I have missed something, please let me know in the comment section below, so that I can include that in my travel must-have list.

Hope, you would find this post helpful.

See you soon.

  11. Anamika, this list is great! It covers literally all the essentials. I also, usually always keep beach wear sandals as walking on the sand with regular shoes is a nightmare! And bare-foot is sometimes too hot to bear!

    Saving it in pockets for further reference, because it could be a great checklist :D
