Pharmacy and Essential Items in My Bag

Everyone has that one tiny purse in their bag that they carry with them wherever they go. Some call it a make-up bag, while others call it a purse. Well, I call it an Essentials and Pharmaceutical Items bag.

Your bag might be overflowing with items and we have this constant battle on what we should have in our bag. But worry not, I’m here to tell you what essential pharmaceutical items you should carry in your bag.


Hand Sanitizer and Hand Cream

Pandemic or not, I’d suggest everyone cultivate the habit of carrying a hand sanitizer in their bag. We’re constantly touching things and picking up stuff. We can’t see germs with our naked eyes. But if we could, we would sanitize our hand every 2 seconds.

Hand cream is also a good product to protect your hands from the harmful UV rays of the Sun. Note that your hand ages faster than your face. Some people tend to forget that the skin is the largest organ, and it is the first protective barrier your body has against the elements.

Hand cream is a great way to protect your hands from all the washing and being exposed to the air conditioners. This keeps your hands hydrated and improves the texture of your skin.

We are living in a humid country. The chances of our hair looking messy, and your body exuding its natural odor is high.

Tidying up your hair and spraying some perfume is a great way to refresh your look halfway through the day. In case you feel warm or want to switch up your look, this is where your hair tie comes in handy.


Medication & Balm

If you’re suffering from any kind of minor ailment like migraines, anemia, or asthma, it’s a must that you include your medication in your bag.

Having your medication in your bag is a great life saver! In between classes and busy schedules, the symptoms of your ailments might affect your well-being. Hence, you might not be able to focus on your work due to the discomfort. This goes on to why you should always include your medication in your bag.

Note: Consult a doctor before consuming any sort of medication.

Having all your essential items with you is the best way to be prepared for any emergencies and for you to have a sense of security for the day. In case you encounter an unfortunate situation where you need to use these items, you wouldn’t have to worry because everything is with you. You can remain calm as you are fully prepared. This is also a good trait because it will help you develop a good habit in being more organized and composed.
