Don't be that stubborn chick who doesn't want to wear sunscreen so you can get a tan. Skin spots and more importantly skin cancer are real and way too easy to get! Use at least SPF 30 at all times to ensure the healthiness of your skin!
Break the mold of water, soda, and sports drinks by trying aloe drinks! The texture is really fun and the different flavors are wonderful. They are sweet without all the artificial chemicals found in most drinks!
The bigger the towel, the better. There is nothing more satisfying at the end of your trip than to wrap up in a big sun warmed clean towel for the car ride home!
