It’s a fact that the humans love to travel and for those who say they don’t, for the most part, it could be because they don’t have the means to do so. Of course, there’re also the chronic homebodies who would rather sit at home than venture out for one reason or the other. However, generally speaking, we are social creatures who love to explore new sights and sounds. Travel essentials women of course!
Travelling is a lot of fun but it can also be very stressful. From the packing to the unpacking, some of us wish we had someone else to take care of those little details No matter how much you plan, in some way or another, there’s always going to be some oversight but that shouldn’t take the fun away from any travelling experience!
Knowing the essential travel items you need in your suitcase can save you a lot of headache and heartache when you get to your destination. Regardless of whether you’re packing a backpack or a suitcase, it’s what’s inside that counts. And on that note, we have put together a list of absolute must-have travel items – besides your means of identification – just for you.
Check out 5 travel essential women need to know…
#1. Power bank and charger
These are items a lot of people tend to forget especially because they are used to charging their phones in the same spot every time. It’s always better to have one permanently in your suitcase for trips plus you don’t want to spend your extra cash a buying new one. In addition, your power bank gives your phone the boost it needs on the go, especially with the need to capture those precious moments. Finally, if you’ll be travelling across countries, don’t forget to throw in a universal adaptor. Travel essentials women of course!
Most people of African descent erroneously think they don’t need sunscreen because black don’t crack. Of course black don’t crack, but a sunscreen will not only save you from aging, but also skin cancer. In addition, sunscreen on women of color does a lot to protect your skin from the sun’s rays that can lead to uneven skin tone and exacerbate the presence of hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
#3. Baby wipes
I’m always an advocate for baby wipes because if they are safe for babies, then you don’t need to worry about reacting to it especially if you have sensitive skin. Whether you have a baby or not, the uses are endless and you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without them. From wiping off makeup and dust to using it for a quick refresh, these come in handy every day, every time, especially when you’re on the move.
#4. Toiletry bag travel essentials women
You may think that you are a pro when it comes to packing until you reach your destination only to realize that you forgot your toothbrush and toothpaste after using it on the day of your trip. If possible, always have an extra toiletry bag that never leaves your suitcase after every trip. Your toiletry bag should contain your toothbrush, toothpaste, body lotions, sunscreen, lip balm, bathing soap and shampoo in travel-sized bottles. Remember to check the expiration dates on these items each time before zipping up your luggage!
Music and travelling go hand in hand. This is what makes the headphones/earphones essential travel items. However, you don’t just need any old headphones, as you may soon find out. The headphones that are perfect for your 30-minute commute are uncomfortable on longer journeys and don’t cancel out the sound of a jet engine. So, think wire headphones or Bluetooth earphones. These also come in handy when you need to take your calls and move your luggage around at the same time.
