Summer is so close we can feel the salt in our hair and the glow on our skin already! Right now is the perfect time to start planning for all the summer essentials. From your highlighted hair to your pedicured toes, getting summer ready isn’t easy. No worries though. We’ve got you covered. Check out our list below of all the summer necessities you should pack into your beach bag before a day under the sun.
Sun Protection – Obviously skin care and sunblock is the first thing that comes to mind. But the unrelenting summer sun can wreak havoc on your hair, eyes, lips and so much more if you don’t protect yourself enough. Check out sun haircare lines, UVA/UVB proof sunnies, and SPF lip balms to make sure you’re covered on all areas.
The Right Suit – The spotlight squarely falls on your swimsuit. Nothing else really matters unless you’re sporting a fierce suit in a confident demeanor. From the one pieces to the backless and brazen, there’s a great option for all likes. We suggest the Antigua, Leilani, and Miafor unique looks that will heat up the sand more than the sun can even handle.
Accessories – A day on the beach can quickly turn into a night on the town so you want to make sure you pack the right coverups, shoes, and jewelry that’ll help you transition from day to night instantly. We suggest a sheer patterned cover-over dress, a pair of wedges that can withstand sand as well as sidewalk, and a great set of earrings that can elevate your swimsuit to a whole new look once the sun goes down.
Hydration – Just as quickly as the sun can beautifully bronze your skin, it can suck the hydration right out of your pores. While you’re sitting on the sand it’s important to drink plenty of water to stay refreshed and satisfied but as soon as it’s time to pack the towels and chairs, your facial moisturizer should make an appearance. Replenishing what the sun dried off your skin is as important as filling your body with it.
After Sun Care – Once the sun’s gone down, round two of selfcare begins. Saltwater, harsh winds, and sun exposure are all potentially damaging factors we come face to face with each time we spend time on the sand. By using products that can revive what the outdoors has touched, you can prolong the not-so glamour side-effects. Conditioning your hair, exfoliating your skin, and hydrating your body can seal in your body’s natural defenses against the elements and keep you glowing until next year.
