These are the 7 Essentials you Should Never Go Without this Summer

Published

on

Summer is finally here and I’ll be damned if I say I’m not excited to leave Cairo, tan, wakeup by the sea and just enjoy the hell out of the season! But in order to have the best summer experience, I never walk around without my backpack/Tote bag packed with my summer necessities and by necessities, I mean gadgets that your friends, skin and body will crown you as the summer Queen/King for. So, let’s ace this summer, shall we?

1. Sunscreen

I cannot stress this point enough! It doesn’t matter if you’re dark skinned, or if you believe that you never get sunburned; sunscreen shouldn’t be a choice during summertime, it should be a rule. Sunscreen helps limit excessive UV (ultraviolet rays) exposure, which helps reduce the risk of getting skin cancer. This is how serious the issue is.

2. SPF lip balm

People forget to protect their lips, but skin cancer in this area can be particularly dangerous, which is why everyone should use lip balm with SPF. Do not underestimate the damaging power of UV rays.

3. Water Bottle

We all love our malibus and mojitos but it’s important to stay hydrated. Normal plastic bottles are so outdated and can easily get mixed up with someone else’s water bottle. So, instead buy yourself a cool looking water bottle that’ll always remind you to hydrate.

4. Coconut Oil

Why coconut oil? Coconut oil can be used on your hair to keep it moisturized and shiny, on your skin to keep it hydrated and glowing, on your face as a non-greasy moisturizer, around your eyes as a wrinkle remover, as natural makeup remover, as a homemade tooth paste when mixed with baking soda, as lip balm and as natural deodorant. Yes, child, coconut oil is indeed miraculous.

5. Mini Speakers

So that when the main speakers’ battery’s dead, your heroic ass saves the day by pulling your mini speakers out of your bag, plug it in and continue chillin’ without anything killing your vibe. Just remember to always keep it charged.

6. Deodorant

Summer= sweat, and who wants stinky armpits in the summer? no one! Who wants the cute stranger to walk away in the middle of the conversation to avoid passing out because of how you smell? NO ONE.

7. Shades

Maybe you don’t like shades, maybe you don’t think you look nice in them but sunglasses are so damn important in the summer! They keep you from squinting, which save you from getting wrinkles. Plus, they protect your eyes from harmful sun rays. Just make sure to buy shades that block UV rays and you’re good to go, champ!

Moderna Inc’s vaccine against coronavirus has received on Friday the emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, making it the second vaccine to be registered.

The FDA made the announcement following a panel that was held for the agency with outside experts who endorsed the vaccine, and a week after the FDA’s authorization for Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech SE.

The vaccines from Pfizer and BioNTech, which share the similar technology, have been on a massive nationwide rollout and been handed out to thousands of U.S. healthcare workers. Moderna is expected to follow the lead of those vaccines.

“With the availability of two vaccines now for the prevention of COVID-19, the FDA has taken another crucial step in the fight against this global pandemic that is causing vast numbers of hospitalizations and deaths in the United States each day,” FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D, said in a statement.

“It is my hope that all Americans will protect themselves by getting vaccinated when the vaccine becomes available to them. That is how our country will begin to heal and move forward,” top U.S. infectious disease scientist Anthony Fauci said in a statement.

We hope that with vaccines underway that this nightmare can finally come to an end and that 2021 will bring us the new start we desperately need.
