Your Summer Holiday Checklist
Summer has finally arrived and many of us are getting ready to jet off somewhere warm and sunny. With this in mind we thought it would be a good idea to prepare a list of all the essentials that you should bring with you on holidays. Use this list when packing and make sure that you are prepared for all circumstances and are able to enjoy your holiday to the max!
Sun Safety –
Whether you are doing a staycation or a vacation to somewhere tropical sun safety should always come first to protect you against sunburn, premature ageing and skin cancer. To keep you safe in the sun you should stock up on the following items –
-Protective clothing such as a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses
Essential Medications –
We believe at Kirwans Pharmacy that there is a list of medications that are essential to have with you on holiday so you are prepared and not running around looking for a pharmacy late at night when everything is closed (Yes we are speaking from experience!).
-Motilium for upset stomach and vomiting
-Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen
-Dioralyte sachets for dehydration
-Also especially if travelling with kids we think it is vital to have an emergency first aid kit with you containing the essentials such as plasters, dressings, antiseptic spray and tape.
Now just remember your passport, money and tickets and you are good to go. We hope everyone has a lovely summer and we will be here all summer long for any more advice or tips that you should need.
