Healthy To-Do: Make a Summer Safety Kit

Burt's Bees at ShopStyle

I recently attended my first outdoor concert of the Summer and was dismayed, after a trip to the portapotty, to find that I had no hand sanitizer in my bag. I usually make it a point to carry antibacterial wipes or spray for all of my Summer hiking, camping, walking, and concert excursions.

Inspired by my newly updated first aid kit, I decided to assemble a Summer safety kit to toss in my backpack. In addition to a small bottle of hand sanitizer, I included a few handiwipes, a small can of bug spray, a travel tube of sunscreen, and a few Band-aids to treat any potential blisters on long walks or hikes. I'll make sure to keep it stocked throughout the season, so I'll always be prepared.

Is there anything else you think I should add?

Hair elastics and some extra cash would be good things to add to an emergency kit.

I like the carry one of those travel packs of tissues - those can be lifesavers for many things :)

I just got spray hand sanitizer (not the kind above, a different brand) and I can't believe how great it is. I have it in my purse at all times now.

Yes, something for bug bites they can be just as nasty as blisters!
