With the official start of summer near and everyone hitting the beach, I figured I’d share some of my beach bag essentials…or in my case, lake essentials. Unfortunately, we don’t have a beach near us, so we have to make do with our local lakes. Enough blabbering, let’s jump right in!
Of course one of the biggest must haves is sunscreen, for the face if you’d like a slight tint, then the Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 would probably work best for you, but still keep it super natural and fresh. And we can’t forget about our body…personally, I prefer spray SPF and something with a lot of it, so the Sun Bum SPF 70 is perfect. My lips tend to get extra dry when I’m out in the sun and one of my favorite lip balms is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy Balm, it’s SO good!
I know some girls like to apply mascara to give them an “awakened” look, I personally like to stay makeup free, but if you must, then a good waterproof mascara is the way to go. I love keeping body cleansing wipes on hand at all times, so it makes sense to throw a pack in the beach bag as well, along with deodorant and body mist…because duh!
After sun care is just as essential too, so a nice cooling moisturizing mist is a must! And for all of you beach babes who have a natural wave to your hair, a good brush and texturing spray are good extras to pack.
So, what is one product that you can’t go without in your beach bag?
