11 health essentials for your travel bag

11 health essentials for your travel bag

Whether you’re hitting the beach, the mountains or the European cobblestones for this vacation, smart packing may keep you healthier and happier on your travels. Here’s what to toss in your travel bag to keep you cool, comfortable and confident regardless of what life throws at you. Don’t worry, you’ll still have room in your bag to bring home some souvenirs.

    1. Sunscreen. Slather it on in the morning and reapply throughout the day. The sun’s harmful rays can cause premature aging and skin cancer.
    2. Aloe. Whether you missed a spot or just forgot to reapply in the middle of an epic beach day, sunburns happen. Cooling aloe will soothe your skin so you can get back to the fun.
    3. Regular Girl. Vacation is no time for tummy troubles. Regular Girl’s soluble fiber helps you stay regular despite the break in your dining routine. Bonus: Regular Girl’s probiotics helps keep your internal bugs in blissful balance (especially nice when you are introducing some new ones).
    4. Bandages. Be prepared and keep a few bandages in your summer travel bag. If you are prone to blisters or bringing along new shoes, toss in some moleskin, too. This will keep you strolling in comfort.
    5. Hand sanitizer. Airport bathrooms. Enough said.
    6. Empty water bottle. Staying hydrated is important, especially when you’re out in the sun. Be earth-smart and bring your own Regular Girl water bottle instead of buying bottled water. Slip your shades into the empty water bottle to protect them from scratches and breakage. Then when you get thirsty, sprinkle Regular Girl into the bottle along with your H2O for a tummy-pleasing thirst quencher.
    7. Antihistamine. Good for allergies and, in a pinch, it can double as a sleep aid.
    8. Pain reliever. Headaches can spoil a perfect afternoon. Be prepared.
    9. Ear plugs. A snoring travel partner can seriously impact your sleep and that may impact your immune health. This light-weight travel essential helps make your nights trouble- free.
    10. Lip balm. Wind, sun and salty foods can wreak havoc on lips. Keep them protected and kissably soft with a quality SPF lip balm.
    11. Hydrocortisone cream. Topical relief for itches caused by insect bites, poison ivy or those cheap but oh-so-cute earrings you picked up in the gift shop.
