Summer is officially here, and travel season has begun! Whether you are heading on a city break, a staycation or somewhere hot and sunny these travel tips can help you to feel stress-free and organised when preparing for your trips.
Hydration and Healthy Snacks
Staying hydrated seems like an obvious one, but it’s super easy to forget when out and about seeing the sights or relaxing with a good book to drink enough water! Although during your travels it’s even more so important to drink 6-8 cups of water a day, as guided by the NHS EatWell Guide to keep your body hydrated.
Whether you’re travelling by aeroplane, train, or car, delays can often happen! When we know we are going to be out all day we tend to take snacks or prep our meals, so it’s important to not neglect this when travelling this, Summer. Some healthy snacks you can pack for your car journey or in your hand luggage are:
- Fruit Salad
- Hummus and Veggies
- Mixed Nuts
Protect your Skin
SPF is hugely important all year round but more so in the summer months when our skin is exposed to UV rays more often! It’s common to only consider applying SPF first thing in the morning, but reapplying your suncream throughout the day is essential to help prevent sunburn. The NHS recommends to look out for products with the following on the label:
- a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 to protect against UVB
- at least 4-star UVA protection
Make sure to check your sun protection has not passed its expiry date before packing into your luggage!
Keep your Vitamins topped up!
Don’t forget to keep your vitamin and mineral levels topped up whilst on your travels! The Bioglan Multivitamin VitaGummies are specially formulated with 9 key nutrients to help top up the whole family’s vitamin and mineral levels in three delicious flavour gummies.
Build a Travel Bag
One of the key ways to ensure preparation and organisation before your trip is packing all your essentials in a travel bag, ready to go! Here are some of the necessities to pack:
- Collapsible Water Bottle
- Hand Sanitiser
- First Aid Kit
Pack your Probiotics
Changes in time zones, different foods and disturbed sleeping patterns can cause tummy troubles for some. You can help to rebalance the good and bad bacteria in your gut by taking a probiotic before, during and after your trip. The Bioglan Biotic Balance Ultimate Flora contains 20 billion live good bacteria, and there’s no need to keep in the fridge which is great for carrying with you on the go!
Enjoy your travels!
