Camping! Summer 2012
July 28, 2012
Next weekend I am going camping and I could not be more excited! If there's one thing I wish I could do countless times every summer, it would be camping.
I have a lot of the essentials (tent, sleeping bag, etc) but here is a list of things I will need before I go.
I will be spending a lot of time hiking and just relaxing in the sun. My face gets easily discoloured and a higher SPF is definitely needed for occasions like this. This "natural" sunscreen would be perfect for my face, shoulders, chest and the other areas that regular sunscreen is too harsh for my skin!
This item might be TMI but oh well! I do not plan on showering while camping. I will be there for 2 nights and the showers are always freaky and spider central. These wipes will be perfect for in-between time when showering isn't an option. Definitely a necessity on trips like this!
This mattress is a bit more pricey than your typical air bed. Wenzel is a very reputable brand for sporting gear. There is nothing worse than ending up on the ground in the middle of the night, especially when camping. Having a raised bed is much more comfortable when sleeping in the great outdoors.
These will be great for a quick cleansing before and after bed. Sinks are always readily available when camping and doing a whole skincare routine just never works out. These pads will work as a great quick and easy cleanser and exfoliant.
Insect repellent is a camping must-have. This is the best, somewhat safe one I have found. I really dislike bugs and so do the others I'm going with. From mosquitoes, to flies, to ticks, to whatever may be crawling and flying, there is no way I'm camping without this stuff.
I really can't wait! Hiking, smores, campfires, swimming, and more. No summer of mine is complete without a camping trip!
Do you love camping or hate it?
