Summer is coming and it’s time to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading to a snowy destination or one with a beach, you must have a well-packed toiletry bag because… well, we’re women! We need a lot of stuff. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting certain things because you’ll never know if you’re able to find what you need at your holiday destination. Chances are you will, but why risk it.
Here are 10 things you MUST and SHOULD have in your toiletry bag if you’re heading somewhere for a holiday this summer:
This one is real no-brainer. While they do what they’re supposed to, hotel toothbrushes are not as good as your own, so you really shouldn’t forget your own toothbrush. ‘Cos bad breath is not cute!
Smelly armpit, what? Seriously, no matter where you go, never ever forget deodorant.
3. Shampoo and conditioner
Does no one else find hotel shampoos and conditioner to have a little bit of a drying effect on your hair? We absolutely encourage bringing your own.
People seem to think that if it’s not a hot day out or if you’re not by the pool, there really isn’t a need to wear sunscreen. That’s completely false. If it’s daylight outside, you’re going to need sunscreen. So, even if you’re skiing in the snow, as long as it’s daytime, you’ll need sunscreen.
5. Face wipes
You just never know how handy these things can be. So, always have a packet in your toiletry bag.
6. Feminine hygiene products
Do we really need to remind you of this and tell you why? It’s always better to be prepared than not because the female body, much like our moods, is very unpredictable.
Because even on holiday, or especially on, you need your skin moisturized.
8. Lip balm
Cracked and dry lips are not nice, so always pack a lip balm in your toiletry bag if you don’t already have it in your handbag.
9. Bobby pins and extra hair ties
Because you never know when you need to keep your hair in place and out of your face!
10. Face wash
Never ever, forget your face wash because if you had to wash your face with the hotel’s bar soap, you may not have any moisture left in your skin.
