Travel Essentials: Everything You'll Always Need
Here’s what you should never go on a trip without
No matter how often we travel, there’s still always the fear of forgetting something important. And depending on where you go, finding a temporary replacement is not always easy. With the added costs and hassles it can pose, be sure not to forget these travel essentials.
A beauty kit
Just because you go on vacation does not mean your beauty regimen needs a rest, too. The trick is consistency and you can’t have that without taking a few beauty essentials with you.
Burt’s Bees Body Lotion will hydrate your body with its Shea Butter and Vitamin E blend—a must for all temperatures, whether hot or cold. Pack up some sunblock as well, like the VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Face and Body Shield, especially if you’re going somewhere sunny.
Cleaning your face at the end of the day is also something you should not skip. So take a bottle of Sephora’s Triple Action Cleansing Water, which will eliminate all traces of face and eye makeup in a single step.
If you’re going to do some walking, think function over form. You don’t want to spoil a great experience because your feet are dragging you down.
Try on the Sketchers Go Flex Ability sneaker, which promises to move with you. Or if you prefer something that’s open, try Tokkyo’s Julia Flat Sandals, which is both durable and comfortable.
A charger, a powerbank and your charging cords
We depend so much on phones that it’s a little hard to imagine not having them around us. And when we’re somewhere that we don’t call home, our gadgets become a safety net in case we lose our way. Which is why your charging paraphernalia is of utmost importance.
If you’re traveling with a group, make it easy on yourselves and bring the Millerton 6-port USB Hub. It allows multiple gadgets to charge at the same time, but can identify each gadget’s charging requirements, too.
It’s also important to protect your devices with screen protectors like the Nanofixit 3 in 1.
Extra memory cards
One of the worst things that can happen on a trip is having to delete photos to make space for new ones. Besides, how can you snap a quick photo when your phone has nowhere to store it? You can’t. The fix is to always make sure you have an extra memory card on you that you can switch up easily.
But if you’re an iPhone user that’s dependent on your phone, you don’t really have the option of a memory card. Fortunately, you can opt for the Apricot OTG instead, which connects directly to your iOS device and gives you as much as 32GB of additional space.
Do the right thing for you and give yourself the most out of your adventures!
