Summer is here and that means it’s time to hit the beach! Whether you’re headed to the nearby lake or traveling to the coast, we put together some beach bag must-haves for you. You don’t want to overpack when going to the beach, so we hope this list helps you pack the essentials and still look fab!
First of all, you need to pack a good sunscreen. Our favorite is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen Lotion with SPF of 55 up to 100. It’s lightweight and non-greasy feeling, making it great for face and body! Don’t forget that your lips need sun protection too! We love Sugar tinted lip treatment by Fresh. It’s an ultra moisturizing lip balm and comes in several different subtle hues to give you lips the perfect color.
To go with your tinted lips, we recommend Glossier’s new cloud paint for the ultimate sun kissed cheeks. This mousse like formula is easy to apply and looks oh so natural! To finish off your “no-makeup makeup” look for the beach, apply a few coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex waterproof mascara. You might want to toss the amazing Wet Brush into your bag to help tame your beach tousled hair. The Wet Brush is perfect for combing your hair (wet or dry) with minimal damage! And it’s a good idea to have hair ties handy too! We love Oh K! Ribbon Hair Ties for their cute, pastel colors, and they are gentle on your hair, with no tugging or pulling.
Another great beach day product is Sun Bum Beach Formula Shine On spray. It’s the perfect blend of oils to nourish your hair and give it beautiful shine while keeping frizz at bay. It also helps protect your color from the UV rays. Want a little hydration for your face as well? Try Caudalie Grape Water for the perfect hydrating face mist anytime and anywhere. Whether your skin is feeling dry or you just want a refreshing face mist, this product will do the trick!
Don’t forget the beach bag itself! There’s hundreds to choose from on shopstyle.com but our favorite is the Madewell x Surfrider Foundation straw tote bag, embroidered with the words “long live the beach.” So grab your towel and sunglasses along with this list of beach essentials. We hope you beach babes have loads of fun all Summer long!
