Yep – summer is finally here and you can’t wait to hit the pool or beach.beach bag
Here are our Summer must-haves to pack in your cute beach bag that won’t leave you looking like a hot mess (yes, pun intended):
Sunscreen: For your face, get at least one with minimum SPF30. For your body, I’m a huge fan of spray-on sunscreens since it’s so easy to apply especially on hard to reach spots like your back. Just make sure that you choose one that’s at least SPF 60 since there’s nothing worse than looking (and feeling) like a lobster. Remember to apply this at least 15-30 minutes before you head out and re-apply every 2-3hours after sweating or swimming.
Tinted Moisturizer: Skip foundation since it’ll just melt off in the sun and instead apply a tinted moisturizer that provides the same coverage and hydrates your skin at the same time. Find one that’s oil-free and offers sun protection with at least SPF 30
UV-shield Leave-in Hair Conditioner: Beach hair is sexy but post-sun strands aren’t. Wear a, leave-in conditioner with UV filters that’ll keep your locks hydrated
Lip Balm w/SPF: Like the rest of your face, your lips also need some sun protection. Find one that keeps your lift soft and hydrated and has minimum SPF 15
Blotting Paper: Great for getting rid of all the oil when you’re basking in the sun
