ALL THAT ZAZZ
By Mary N. DiZazzo
What's in Your Beach/Pool Bag? Summer 2011
First of all, Sun Protection-30 SPF or higher for faces only. Then a 30 SPF or higher for body preferably “water resistant.” You still must reapply! Follow directions thoroughly! Don’t forget your lip protection! Mine is a “pink” zinc ointment—Very colorful.
Sunglasses-can’t choose this year from my vintage collection! I did find stylish “sun” bifocals for reading!
A bottle of water to hydrate through the day. Put bottle of water in freezer the night before so it will stay cold for your sipping pleasure!
A nice big fluffy towel—nothing like it to lie on/dry off!
A cover-up when you feel enough SUN or that chill you get when you leave the water. I just ordered 2 fashionable turbans for hair protection when I’m hanging in the pool. And since you never know who you will meet in the water, a comb/brush to refresh the coif. Goody has put out a “Spin Pin” to whip up a quick chignon!
An energy bar for a quick pick-me-up snack or some nuts and fruit.
A fav magazine or book when you’re tired of “people watching.”
I always like to carry a spritz bottle with rose water for a quick cool-off! Evian also works well!
Hand sanitizer always comes in handy. The towelettes are so convenient.
This is what’s in my bag-hope it's in yours! Enjoy these beautiful summer days!
Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
