We all know the typical essentials, like a beach towel, stylish shades, water, etc. But we’ve put together a list of essentials for your hair and skin!
- Wide-Brimmed Hat
Keep your face covered and protected from the sun with a wide-brimmed hat. It’s another layer of protection beyond sunscreen. Bonus, it looks cute! You can find these almost anywhere. Just search online to find one that matches your beach attire.
- Lip Balm with SPF
Your lips deserve some love too, and the sun can be very drying on that pretty pucker. The skin is thin and sensitive on lips and can easily burn, so remember to pack a lip balm with SPF. If you need help picking the perfect summer balm, we will recommend some favorites.
- Hair Oil
Protect your locks from the sun and water with hair oil. Chlorine can be especially drying, so if you’re spending time at the pool, hair oil is an important essential in your bag. Choose a lightweight, non-greasy oil that will protect but not weigh down your strands.
- Hydrating Mist
If you haven’t used this before, you will fall in love. We promise. It’s the perfect follow-up to a day at the beach, especially if you tend to experience redness and irritation after a day in the sun. Hydrating mist creates a moisture barrier for your skin and minimizes irritation.
Arguably the most important item in your beach bag. Sunscreen will protect your skin from the strong, sun rays. Choose at least 30 SPF and use a quality brand. Not all sunscreens are created equal! We will recommend some favorites. Always have a few bottles at home. You don’t want to be stuck without sunscreen.
Once you have these skin care essentials for your beach bag, add in your other favorites, like a large, soft towel, a sun umbrella, sparkling water and a sexy cover-up. See you at the beach!
