1. Special Shampoos and Conditioners
Most people just settle for whatever kind of shampoo or conditioner they can find at a local store upon arrival or whatever is provided by the hotel they’re staying in. However, if you know that your hair is prone to certain problems and you use a special kind of shampoo and conditioner, it’s a good idea to bring those products along. For example, if you use a shampoo for thinning hair or dandruff, those items should definitely be added to your travel packing list.
2. Prescription Medications and Vitamins
It should go without saying that you shouldn’t leave home without certain prescriptions if you have serious medical conditions, but even if it’s just a multivitamin or antibiotics, it’s always best to take it along anyway. Likewise, try to bring a first aid kit that is loaded with any symptom soothing med that you might need on your trip should you encounter a bout of allergies, headache, sore feet or other common ailment. As a matter of safety, in the event that anyone questions you about your medications, it’s always best to keep pills in their original containers and keep receipts and/or prescriptions.
3. Sunscreen and Insect Repellent
There’s a common misconception that sunscreen is only needed during the summer. Even if you’re taking a winter trip, if you’re going to be exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time, it’s a good idea to use sunscreen. Many people make this mistake on their first skiing trip and wind up with a sunburn face. Of course, it should go without saying that you should definitely bring sunscreen if you’re headed to a place that is sunny and hot.
4. Full Dental Hygiene Kit
Finally, instead of just bringing a toothbrush and toothpaste like most people, don’t forget to pack your floss, mouthwash, whitening strips, breath mints, and any other dental hygiene products that you would normally use at home.
Staying Clean and Comfy While on Vacation
Many people get so distracted by trying to keep with the schedule they’ve planned that they forget about the little things that matter. You don’t want to be feeling uncomfortable and gross when you’re supposed to be enjoying the vacation that you’ve invested so much time and money into. Thus, it’s a good idea to bring plenty of extra changes of clothes, just in case you wind up having to change clothes more times than you originally expected.
