Its pool season! Bust out those pool bags and stock them up. Today I am sharing our Clarke Family Pool Bag Essentials. Our pool bag essentials have changed a lot this year due to a little one, but that makes it all the more fun. It is such a blast watching Brooke play in the water. Last year, it was really hard to take Brooke to the pool because she was so little, but she is loving it so far this year.
Pool Bag Essentials
Towels are a must have for any pool bag unless you want to ride all the way home wet. We just pack two towels and Brooke shares with one of us since she isn’t that big yet. I’m sure next year we will have to bring her a towel of her own. I love big beach towels so that I can spread out and really relax.
Being in the sun can really dry out your skin, so I like to use Cetaphil® to make sure my skin is well hydrated. It is recommended by more dermatologists and pediatricians than any other cleanser and moisturizer brand. It is effective, yet gentle and moisturizes without clogging, leaving your skin feeling smooth and never greasy. It makes your legs feel #Wonderphil all afternoon!
After I put on my lotion, I lather up with sunscreen to protect my skin as well. I also make sure Brooke has her baby sunscreen on every inch of her skin that’s showing. And, Kevin always puts some on as well. I probably use the least sunscreen because I like a good tan, but the older I get, the more sunscreen I use. I really want to protect my skin.
You can’t have a successful pool day without snacks! Swimming always give me an appetite and I love bringing fun snacks to the pool. Brooke is a big fan of snack time just like mommy.
Water is a huge must! It is so easy to get dehydrated in the summer heat so water is a big essential in our pool bag. We each bring our own bottle of water and normally end up wanting more when we get home. Its really important to be sure you hydrate before you go to the pool and after as well.
One of my favorite things in our pool bag is Brooke’s adorable floaty. We aren’t quite used to having a little one at the pool with us, but it is so much fun! The days of sunbathing and casually going for a dip in the pool are over for now. It’s full playtime and family time at the pool and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love watching how much Brooke enjoys playing in the water. It is just so fun.
Cetaphil® Men Face Cloths
The last item in our pool bag are these face cloths for men. I use similar ones to take off my make-up at night and I have been saying they need a men’s version. I was so excited when I found these Cetaphil® ones. They are perfect for men to wipe down their face after a long day. They clean your skin but don’t strip anything away.
I completely trust Cetaphil® because they deliver results without compromising gentleness. If you’re interested in trying Cetaphil®, visit their website to save up to $5 on Cetaphil® now!
