☀☀ During summers, pool parties are the only best way to beat the heat whilst party hard!
As summer season has hit most of the countries, you would be flooded with pool party invitations. Pool parties have always tempted and mesmerised party animals! It is fun and relaxing to hang out with friends inside the pool with a bottle of beer. However, pool water has chlorine that can damage your skin and hair. So, before heading for a water based party, you need to take some preventive measures to look perfect for the party. Party freaks need to know some smart tips to maintain themselves while partying like a rockstar!
Wax ——- Before hitting any pool party, you must wax your body so that the exposed skin doesn’t look ugly!
Sunscreen ——- If you have a pool party in the daytime, the scorching rays of the sun can tan you and make you look dull and dark. So do not forget to apply a sunscreen before going to the party. No matter what skin tone you have, always apply sunscreen and apply it often. Sunscreen is your most valuable investment and you can’t go wrong with multiple applications throughout the day. The sunscreen application is easier than ever when you use the spray sunscreen. And for those of you who want to tan, it is a total myth that you can’t tan while wearing sunscreen. You will not only tan through sunscreen, but you will keep your skin healthy! (Priorities, people!)
Know how to swim ——- Better yet, know how to dive! This will come in handy when the rude kids dare you to jump off a high dive.
No hairstyle ——- If you try some tricky hairstyle for the pool party, all the hard effort will go in vain once you jump into the pool. So, do not bother about your hairstyle.
Clean nails ——- This is one of the most important tips to remember before going to a pool party. Cut your nails to avoid hurting yourself, look clean and also maintain hygiene.
Sunglasses ——- Grab a sexy pair of sunglasses and you can enjoy the party to the fullest. Use plastic ‘glasses’ for drinks as broken glass is not what you want to have to deal with. You really should make sure your sunglasses protect your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays. The UVA rays penetrate deep into your skin, hitting the dermis, while UVB rays usually burn the first layer of skin. By any means, your eyes also fall victim to the sun’s strong rays and deserve the same kind of protection that your skin does.
Extra clothes/swimsuits ——- Before jumping into the pool, you need to keep a stock of fresh clothes. You cannot roam all around or return in wet clothes. So, carry extra clothes with you. You really don’t want to forget this! Be sure you take along an easy change of clothes, and a swimsuit cover up, so you can be comfortable before, during and after the pool day.
Slippers over heels ——- At pool parties, wear something that makes you feel comfortable. Wear slippers as they are waterproof and won’t even damage easily.
Wear a swimsuit you are comfortable with ——- There are tons of styles out there. The most practical of them all is probably a sweet heart neckline or straight neckline tankini swimsuit. A tankini is like a bikini except it has a full tank style top instead of a undergarment style top. Wear your swimsuit to the party, underneath your clothes or cover up.
Pack a tote with essentials ——- Carry along with you a strong roomy tote bag containing some stuff. Here are the basics:
- 2 towels- one to dry yourself and one in case your towel is wet and you jumped back in the water
- A water bottle. You have to stay hydrated to keep your fuel up. Try to get the reusable ones. Be eco!
- A hairbrush or comb, to brush out the wet ratty hair.
- A spare change of clothes in case your other gets wet.
- Personal items
Jewellery ——- Prefer minimal jewellery as your expensive assets can fall off while you are busy enjoying the pool party. Take it off before throwing yourself into any games.
First Aid kit ——- Your first aid kit should be specific to these pool days, and you can take it around with you from pool party to pool party. The contents of the first aid kit should contain:
- Petroleum jelly for cracked skin relief
- Aloe for sunburns
- Waterproof bandages
- Insect repellant
- Anti-itch cream
- Ear drops and eye drops
Now if you have all of these items ready you have passed the poolside preparedness test! You are completely ready for fun in the sun – be sure to work on that cannonball form, too! What are your favorite items to take to the pool? What are your summer plans? Share in the comments!
