Holiday season has arrived, with friends and colleagues starting to jet off to sunnier climes I’ve found myself browsing the holiday and swimwear sections of websites coveting all sorts of things. I don’t even have a holiday booked, madness! Fingers crossed Mum and I will escape at the end of September for a week of sunshine, it’s been on the cards for ages!
Here are just a few of the things that have caught my eye lately.

If you’re yet to make your vacation checklist, consider adding the following products:
Hopefully you won’t need to make use of it, but it’s always handy to have a first aid kit in your suitcase. These kits should contain a minimum of plasters, dressings and cleansing wipes.
Headaches, nerve pains and other similar complaints can put a real downer on holidays, so make sure you take some pain relief with you when you jet off on vacation. If you’re travelling with children, it’s important to have suitable all-round pain relief products.
Even if you want to get a tan when you’re abroad, it’s important to take plenty of sun cream or spray with you. Exposing your skin to too much sun can result in nasty burns. As well as resulting in short-term pain, this can cause lasting damage to your skin. It’s recommended that you use a minimum protection factor of 15 and make sure you apply it on a regular basis.
In a hot climate, it’s crucial that you drink plenty of hydrating fluids. It’s also helpful to have some rehydrating solutions in your suitcase. These products tend to come in sachets and they contain a blend of salts and sugars.
Depending on where you’re going, it might also be important to take some insect repellent with you. The last thing you want when you’re trying to relax on holiday is to be eaten alive by flying pests.
So that you know exactly what medical supplies to take with you on vacation, it helps to do some research on your chosen destination. You might also find that you need certain vaccinations before you set off. These can usually be arranged at your local GP surgery, but it’s important that you give yourself plenty of time before your departure date.
