Soak up the Sun
When vacationing anywhere warm, especially in California’s desert communities, it’s important to bring items that help protect your skin and eyes. Another great option for protecting yourself from the sun is to carry along a few pairs of sunglasses! You can easily find cheaper versions of your designer favorites if you don’t want to worry about losing your beloved pair. Toss on a floppy sun hat or baseball cap, and you’ll be set to spend the day soaking up the sun.
For skin, sunscreen, after sun lotions, and aloe vera can come in handy. Sunscreen helps keep the exposure to UVA and UVB rays at bay. You can pick up your favorite sunscreen and almost any drugstore or grocery store in our area if you happen to leave yours at home. You might also want to consider after sun lotion which helps keep your skin from exfoliating during your trip. If you happen to spend more time in the sun than needed, you’ll want to grab a bottle of Aloe Vera. Let the cooling and healing properties soak into your skin overnight. You’ll find that these items might need to be used daily.
Cool by the Pool
Whether you’re cooling off by the pool or relaxing at a local spa, you won’t want to forget swimwear. Swimwear these days comes in all shapes and sizes, colorful two piece bikini’s and cute cut-out one-pieces to board shorts and square cut ones. You’ll have lots of fun picking which ones make the cut or bring them all!
The choice is yours on what to bring with you, but we recommend to think about items that are versatile. Mix and match your swimwear so that it can last more than one day. Add in comfy beachwear such as flowy dresses, shorts, tees or loose button-ups and comfortable shoes, and you’ll have a great suitcase full of options!
