6 Bundles of Items to Pack:
Sunscreen, sun block, and more sun tan lotion!
At the top of our list, we highly recommend protecting your family’s skin from ultra-violet sun rays. A sun protector prevents skin damage, which possibly leads to skin cancer. Depending on your family, there may be a need a few different kinds of sunscreen. The available sunscreens vary in prominent uses. There is sunscreen for children, sunscreen for normal and sensitive skin, and sunscreen that can be worn under make-up. We recommend getting a large supply of sun screen for the entire family.
Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, and Dental Floss
On vacation, keep your family’s smile as bright as the sun. Multiple traveling sets of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss are a dental hygiene must-have while on vacation. You can bundle these up in zip lock baggies (also available at our store) and keep multiple sets in convenient locations. This dental hygiene bundle will come in handy throughout your vacation.
Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair gel
Along with the blazing summer sun comes a lot of swimming. The chlorine in the water can dry out and damage hair. Shampoo, conditioner, and styling gel are hair essentials for a family vacation. The health of your family’s hair can be maintained with this hair bundle. A tip for the family is using a leave-in conditioner while on vacation.
Razors, Shaving cream, and After shave.
There is a need for maintaining body and facial hair while on vacation. Therefore, add a bundle of shaving products to fulfill this need. There are razors, shaving creams, and after shaves to choose from in our aisle. We have both female and male products. Alternative methods of hair removal are also available. These do not require razors and are equally effective. Be sure to wear sunscreen after using certain products.
- Injuries can occur randomly, and range from a paper cut to a scraped knee, and sometimes even a sprained ankle. It is always less stressful when prepared for these type of situations. You can achieve this by adding a complete first aid kit to your family luggage, or restocking your current first aid kit. At BA Family Drug, we have all the tools handy to aide your family with minor and moderate injuries that may come about. This helps to keep your family vacation running smoothly.
Sunglasses and Flip-flops
- Enjoy the view and weather while on vacation with sunglasses and flip flops. Grab a pair of sunglasses and flip flops for each member of the family. Sunglasses help protect your eyes from the sun, so you can see the vacation view in full array. Flip-flops will keep your feet cool in the warm weather. It is a breeze to take them off and put them back on, which comes in handy when running in the sand and soaking your feet in the water.
It is a good idea to check off your vacation shopping list before you leaving on vacation. Vacation resorts consistently charge more for the previously mentioned items. You should pick up these items in advance. In doing so you gain peace of mind about having necessities. Furthermore, you save money to be spent on your family.
