How to prepare for a beach day!

We all love relaxing in the sunshine, but when it comes to going to the beach, a little preparation can really make a difference. Read on our simple tricks on how to make the day more enjoyable and leave all the sunburns and the sand behind!

  • Always apply sunscreen: we keep hearing this from doctors, dermatologists, and even our own parents, but somehow sunblock keeps being forgotten in the house. Sunburns can be really painful and dangerous, particularly on children’s sensitive skin, so the rule here is always better safe than sorry. Chose one that is fast absorbing, and apply it half an hour before sun exposure if possible, so the kids will be free to run towards the water as soon as they set foot on the sand. Reapply frequently, especially after any bath.
  • Keep hydrated: with all the heat and the swimming, children (and adults) will need to keep hydrated during the day. You can invest in a stainless steel reusable water bottle that will keep the water cool throughout the day, avoiding spending extra money on overpriced water bottles on the seaside cafes.
  • Removing sand: no one likes to take the sand home, so better wash it off before getting to the car! Sand is so much easier to wipe off when the skin is dry, so it’s useful to ask the kids to come out of the water around half an hour before departure. If there’s no time, baby powder can help dry the skin faster making it easy to remove all the sand.
  • Zip lock bags: one of the main challenges of being at the beach is maintaining objects dry and sand free. Zip lock bags can work miracles for this! Plus, keeping your mobile phone inside a zip bag will also make you less likely to look at it constantly, making it easier to relax and enjoy the day.
  • Never run out of snacks: whether you are sunbathing, swimming or building sand castles, being at the beach will make everyone hungry. Snacks are essentials, especially if you are spending the whole day out. Fruit is always a great option, not only it is healthy and hydrating, but it’s easy to pack and can be easily washed or peeled should it fell on the sand. Small Sandwiches are also another great option, as they don’t require any cutlery and can be packed individually… and remember, it’s always safer to pack a couple extra!
