Bag Essentials for the Rainy Season

Health hazards and little hassles are part of having unpredictable weather. However, as long as we come amply prepared, no string winds or heavy downpours can even knock us down. (^_^) The rainproof tip: We should arm ourselves with sturdy resistant bag with lots of room for storage. We can use it to store some tools that may save us come unexpected drizzles.

Here are six must-haves this rainy season:

Umbrella - Opt for a heavy-duty one that can withstand strong winds and keep you dry.

Waterproof jacket or raincoat - it offers the wide coverage against the rain. It will keep you warm and dry, prevent clothes from being soiled, and make you less susceptible to common illnesses like colds and flu. 

Flip-lops, rain boots, or plastic shoes - Both footwear have come a long way hen it comes to make and style. Newer flip-lops are made of more durable materials while rubber boots some in a wide array of fashionable colors and patterns. But if you want something more fashionable, try wearing jelly or plastic shoes that come in funky designs.

A pack of tissue - Clear yourself of dirt, sweat, mud and rain with a pack of tissue paper. This can also be used to clean items that have been drenched in the rain such as books.

Alcohol or hand sanitizer - Many people get sick during rainy season so it is imperative to constantly wash our hands in order to stay healthy. When there are no toilets in sight, keep those hands clean with a bottle of hand sanitizer or alcohol.

Moisturizer - Always carry some lip balm and lotion to keep your lips and skin moisturized during the cold, rainy weather.

Outsmart weather troubles by thinking ahead and preparing accordingly. Continue to be safe and healthy this rainy season!
