Going to the beach is one of the most relaxing and luxurious things you can do in the summertime. However, if you are not prepared it can also be damaging and even dangerous. That’s why I want to show you my beachside beauty essentials.
Side note: This post is brand specific…they are items I use but any brand similar will be just fine!
It’s no secret I’m obsessed with coconut water…but truthfully the point of this is that hydration is number one. Not only is it beneficial for your health but it is so important to keep hydrated for your skin. So wheather it is coconut water or regular spring water, keep the fluids going when you are in the sun.
This should be a no brainer: if you are in the sun you MUST wear sunscreen. Even if you have a base tan and tan all of the time it’s so important because face it…a good tan is not worth getting skin cancer for. There I said it.
Sunglasses aren’t only stylish but they also protect your eyes from getting burned. That’s right, your actual eyes can physically get sunburned as well….so it is so important to make sure you protect them.
One area that seems to always get neglected is the lips. Your lips are a sensitive skin so make sure you use a lip balm that contains SPF in it to give it that extra protection.
When you are out of the sun it is super important to hydrate your skin. Any form of aloe vera will help the after effects and damage the sun can cause even if you don’t have a visible burn.
My face is prone to breakouts so I use a special face sunscreen that is oil free to prevent clogging of pores. I always love Neutrogena but any oil free lotion will do.
This last item isn’t about protection but is about beauty. I’m not one of those girls who won’t get her hair wet (screw that!) However, that doesn’t mean I want my hair to be a frizzy mess. That’s why I use this spray to help manage my naturally wavy hair into soft beach waves. Bonus: It makes your hair smell like a piña colada.
All these items (with the exception of these actual Tom Ford sunglasses) can be found at any local drugstore or supermarket.
