  • Expand your wardrobe

Expanding your wardrobe is one of the most important things to do when preparing for summer vacation. It’s time to get rid of all of the clothes that no longer fit you or don’t need in your closet, and replace them with high-quality clothes. Our personal needs are constantly changing, and those high heels that you might have worn last summer might have to be replaced with a stylish pair of flip flops. Plus, if you plan on travelling somewhere that’s a bit hotter than your current climate or you haven’t been to the beach in a while, it might be time for some cooler clothes and a new swimsuit. 

  • Get beach-ready

The beach is a key part of the summer experience. Whether you’re going on an extravagant vacation or you’re just going to the beach with your friends, being ready to look and feel your best is important. Going on vacation and want to ditch the razor but still like having smooth skin? There are many benefits of laser hair removal. Going to the beach with friends? Get matching swimsuits or beach towels that stand out. Want to snorkel, go paddleboarding, or go swimming in underground caves? Make sure that you have a wetsuit! There are plenty of stylish options out there for anything you might need. 

  • Stock up on sunscreen

Sunscreen is important. A sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is recommended by dermatologists, and it’s also recommended to reapply every two or so hours. However, if you’re going swimming in any natural body of water, using a reef-safe sunscreen is vital to protecting the environment. Sun damage can give you wrinkles and skin cancer, so remember to apply. Many makeup products and skin care products also include SPF protection.

  • Plan activities in advance

It’s always fun to have a summer bucket list! Whenever you have the opportunity to go out with friends and don’t know what to do, or you’re stuck at home bored, you’ll always have backup plans. Find fun museums for a day out with friends and family, parks that you’ve never been to before for a fun picnic, or local concerts for a casual way to have some fun. Create a bucket list of things from local attractions to places around the world, such as National Parks or the 7 Wonders of the World. Whatever you choose, it’s super convenient. Nobody likes to be stuck at home bored during the summer, and planning is the best way to prevent that.
