Now that summer is here it’s beach time. Do you have everything you need to have a great but still glamorous time at the beach? With this small checklist you can make sure that you’re fun time doesn’t turn into a beauty disaster.
One is sunscreen. This is without a doubt The single most important item on this list for many reasons. First off is that sunscreen can help protect you from the suns harmful UV rays, second it can help fight off sunburn. This is always a must have.
Two is after sun care, whether aloe or another great skin cooling rub. Its really hard for me to cool off after being in the sun for a long time so this is something I always keep in my bag. Its especially great for sunburns and you don’t have to rub it in just applying it to the top layer of skin works wonders.
Three is you plan to get in the water and swim around don’t forget your brush or comb. The combination of sun and saltwater can turn your hair into a tangled mess and even if you rinse off afterward your hair can still be all dried out so while a comb is number 3 it ties into item 4.
Four is leave in conditioner. When I know I will be going to a place that has a shower or even a rinse station, I take a mini travel pack of shampoo and condition as well as my leave in conditioner. The leave in conditioner can refresh and repair your hair regardless of how long you’ve been in the sun and since you’re doing it immediately, there’s no harsh damage to your hair.
Five is going to be oil blotting sheets. Since you’re going to be out in the sun that means you’re gonna sweat, and since you’re going to sweat you’re going to shine. Cut down the shine by not only washing your face even if its just with water but also by using oil blotting sheets. These are great because you don’t have to put on make up you just dab off the oily parts and keep on truckin’
Six is definitely going to be deodorant. The beach is awesome but it can also rinse away your deodorant leaving you with just a sweaty, salty stench. Just take a travel mini and that solves the b.o. problem.
Seven is the final thing to complete your beauty essential kit, body spray. Nothing too heavy maybe a tropical something or a nature kind of smell. By adding something light and tropical to your beach body scent you are ready to go out all over again.
With these few items you can make your beach trip fun and then clean up real quick for a night out. Have a great time at the beach and remember just because you’re out in the hot sun and salty water, doesn’t mean you have to look and smell like it.
