Spring break is the time of year to shed winter layers, and let warmth and sun back into your life! You're going to have some amazing adventures, so it's good to be prepared. Luckily, as you're stocking up on health necessities with us, you can also pick up spring break essentials!

A Cute Beach Bag

Gear up for your beach adventures, outdoor exploring, and overnight trips with our perky seasonal tote bags, found in our stores! This durable, water resistant tote has tons of space for the rest of your spring break essentials.
For a more natural vibe, opt for an Alaffia basket tote, like the one pictured above. These amazing, colorful totes are made by women in West Africa, who weave for fair wages and family health care. Each basket is hand-woven and varies in color/pattern, so stop by our stores to pick your favorite!

A Sun Safe Tan!

We're fans of a sun-kissed glow, but not of the harm that harsh UV rays cause. Derma E's Sun Defense Mineral Sunscreen for Body in SPF 30 is exceptional. We noticed that, for being a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical sunscreen, this one has the least white cast and goes on more smoothly.
Those with sensitive or acne-prone skin may not want to use body sunscreen on their face. For this, Derma E's Sun Protection Mineral Powder for Face in SPF 30 is the perfect, brush-on, no-frills way to "save face".
Protect during the day, but tan at night. After your nightly shower, try these Gradual Self Tan Wipes from Mineral Fusion. They're full of moisturizing oils, and produce a natural, sunless glow over time.

Snacks for the Road

We're big fans of snacking. Take a quick peek at these, or stop by for our full selection! 
1. Nick's Sticks are a delicious keto protein option. Think of these as a more rustic, authentic Slim Jim.
2. Love Good Fats bars are another popular keto option. These snacks are more sweet than savory! 
3. Annie's Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks... For a sweet treat, we're all over these!
4. Organic Crispy Snack Bars are a tasty treat with a crunch.
5. Vega protein bars keep it clean and vegan. Our favorite flavor is Coconut Almond!
6. Or, simply stop by our stores' organic fruit and veggie sections for an all-natural pick me up. 

Your Trusty Hand Sani

Hand sanitizer is a must-have, especially at outdoor festivals and other places without access to running water. Keep it clean naturally with Dr. Bronner's Lavender Hand Sanitizer Spray. A convenient 2 oz. spray bottle, it's the perfect size for your bag. For an alcohol-free option, check out Cleanwell's Pocket-Size Hand Sanitizer Spray.

Multitasking Makeup

Michelle, Fruitful Yield Staff Writer/writer of this piece, used the 3-in-1 color stick on eyes, lips, and cheeks on a trip to NOLA.

Cut the clutter in your travel makeup bag by opting for a 3-in-1 Color Stick by Mineral Fusion. This jack-of-all-trades stick works as a more natural-looking cream blush, lip color, and eye shadow. Our favorite is this blushy apricot shade Terra Cotta, which looks great on a wide variety of skin tones. (For deep skin tones, it can be used as a cream highlighter!)

Hydration for Hot Days

Coconut Water Slender Sticks™ - 12 Packets
Don't let heat and dehydration turn a day of fun into a heat scare! Sometimes a little flavor can help us drink more water. Added electrolytes in NOW Slender Sticks help add vital salts lost in the body when sweating.  Both Grape and Coconut Water Slender Sticks have electrolytes.
Nuun Sport Hydration Tablets are also a great flavor and electrolyte water add-in. We love the Lemon Lime flavor!
