Must-Haves for Your Summer Vacation Bag
Date:7/28/2009

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- With summertime in full swing, vacationers are packing their bags for the nearest beaches, parks and poolside locations. Spending an increased amount of time outdoors is common during the summer months, but before you start soaking up those rays, be sure you are properly equipped with the right products to help you stay healthy.

Dr. Melonie Clemmons, independent doctor of optometry at Wal-Mart Vision Center, offers some helpful tips on what you should pack in your bag to ensure your time outdoors is both fun and healthy:

  • Always pack sunscreen to protect your skin from premature aging and skin cancers

Make sure you choose a sunscreen product with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher and remember to reapply after swimming, sweating or toweling dry.(1)

  • Bring along protective eyewear to block the sun's harmful UV rays

People often recognize the need to protect their skin from the dangers of the sun, yet few people realize that their eyes are also at risk. Even the sensitive skin surrounding the eyes can be damaged by prolonged sun exposure and is susceptible to wrinkling and forms of skin cancer. Consider wearing photochromic lenses like Transitions(R) lenses that are clear indoors and at night and automatically darken when exposed to UV light to block 100 percent of UVA/UVB rays.

  • Water

Staying hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water everyday can help combat the effects of increased sun exposure.

  • Pack lip balm with SPF protection

The sun's UV rays pose a threat to your skin, eyes and also your lips. Wearing lip balm with SPF protection can protect your lips from overexposure to the sun and help prevent painful lip chapping.
