Calling all jet setters! Spring is finally upon us after a cold, icy winter. Soon enough, flowers will bloom in vivid bursts of color, the birds’ sweet songs will fill the air, and the sun’s warmth will conjure thoughts of getaways to fabulous destinations.

For many people, tropical vacations are always at the top of the list. Whether it’s lounging on the pristine beaches of Aruba or taking a cruise ship to multiple ports, exotic locations are an excellent way to de-stress. However, properly preparing for your trip is just as important as the trip itself. Below are a few tips to help make your getaway anxiety and stress free!

Clothing – When packing, roll your clothing versus folding it as you fill your suitcase. Rolled clothing takes up less space and decreases deep wrinkles from setting in.

Sunscreen – Be sure to pack sunscreen with a high SPF. A sunburn can easily turn a dream vacation into a nightmare!

Moisturizer – In the event you do get sunburned, having a proper moisturizer on hand, preferably with aloe, will help ease the pain and reduce peeling. Plus, it’s always a good idea to moisturize after a day in the sun.

Scarf – This will have many purposes throughout your trip. Wear it on the plane and it instantly becomes a blanket with the air gets cool. Bring it to the beach and it turns into a cover up. The possibilities are endless!
