Restroom Survival Kit

We all know to take sunscreen to the beach, but what about the other items that you might think of?  The experts at, a company focused exclusively on travel sized items and single serving food items, put together a list from its experiences with travelers across the United States:

1. Aloe Vera Gel – Sunburn pain alleviator for the spots you might have missed (like the tops of your feet, ears, nose, or back of your knee).

2. Lip Balm with Sun Protection – Important to bring a moisturizing lip balm that also contains a level of SPF

3. Public Restroom Survival Kit – A collection of items to make the best out of a trip to the beach’s public restroom

4. Hair bands – Popular for women with long hair, having a few in a beach bag can help keep hair back

5. Sunglasses – A lot of people don’t own them, but even a cheap pair can be helpful for the rays reflecting off the sand or water

6. Snacks – Beach activities can be tiresome, and you don’t always want to trek to get food

7. Drink mix – Water bottles are a must, but a powdered drink mix, like lemonade, can help enhance boring water

8. Waterproof camera – Cell phone cameras are great, but you can’t get them wet, so a simple waterproof camera is great for getting shots down by the water, or in the water

9. Lightload Beach Towel – You don’t want to have to use the towel you are laying on to dry yourself, and bring an extra can be bulky, but the Lightload Towel expands from the size of a hockey puck into a full sized towel

10. Kid’s UV Bracelet – A great way to measure the sun’s UV level and determine when to re-apply sunscreen on kids, but can also be used by adults
