In the heat of the summer, a dip in the pool becomes the preferred way to cool off, but one mustn’t venture on a swim without the following pool bag essentials.

Once you’ve taken a swim you certainly won’t want to sit in a puddle, so it’s crucial to have a chic towel to dry off with.

2. Tote Bag

Considering this is a list of pool bag essentials, you may want a bag to hold all of the other things on this list.

3. SPF Lip Balm

It’s important to protect not only your skin from the sun, but also your lips, which makes packing a lipbalm with spf very important.

4. Wave Spray

We all wish we had natural beach waves, but unless you live next to the ocean it’s essential to pack a texturizing spray.

5. Book / Magazine

It’s often hard to find time to read, but a relaxing pool day wouldn’t be complete without a good book or magazine to flip through.

6. Cover Up Dress

Sometimes you don’t have the luxury of spending the whole day at the pool, so in order to stay in your suit but still look presentable one must pack a cover up.

One way to stay in the shade and protect your face from the sun is to bring along an oversized sun hat.
