Going on a road trip, or hopping on the plane for a flight abroad? Sounds pretty exciting, until you remember that you forgot to bring something that’s important to your travel plans.
Whether it’s an outfit, a book, and we hope not your passport, having a checklist will give you that peace of mind that you have everything perfectly packed in your suitcase!
What should you wear during beach trips?
A wide-brimmed hat can keep you cool while protecting your face and neck from the sun's harmful rays.
Protecting your eyes from the sun is critical; a good pair of sunglasses can also help reduce glare and improve visibility.
3. Light, breathable fabrics
Choose clothes made of natural fibres such as cotton or linen that are lightweight and breathable, allowing air to circulate and keep you cool.
4. Comfortable shoes or sandals
Whether walking on the beach or exploring a new city, comfortable shoes are essential. Look for shoes with good arch support and cushioning to avoid foot fatigue.
Consider bringing a lightweight cover-up that can be worn over your swimwear or as an additional layer to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Look for UV-protective fabrics to provide additional sun protection!
What things should you bring to the beach?
If you're going to the beach, there are a few more travel essentials for older adults that you should bring with you. Consider the following:
6. Beach towels and blankets
A comfortable place to sit or lie on the beach is essential. Look for quick-drying towels and blankets, and bring a few extras in case of unexpected guests.
An umbrella is a great way to provide shade on the beach while protecting yourself from the sun's harmful rays.
Staying hydrated and fueled is vital, especially on hot summer days. Bring a cooler full of drinks and snacks to keep you energised and refreshed.
By bringing these beach-specific items, you can spend your time comfortably and safely! Remember to apply sunscreen regularly and take breaks in the shade to stay cool and protected from the sun.

9. Restorative Balm
Consistent use of a restorative balm boosts moisture levels and skin elasticity. More than just your lips, it can also protect other parts of your body such as hands, elbows and heels against UV exposure, which is the leading cause of cracking and pigmentation.
Keeping your skin hydrated when outdoors is critical to avoid dryness and flakiness. Look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser that won't clog your pores like the Bio Moisture Boost Serum.
11. Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help protect your skin from sun-induced free radical damage. To reap the most benefits, look for a serum that contains all-organic Vitamin C like Tonik Skincare’s Vitamin C Skin Refiner.
