It’s almost the end of summer, but there is still time to squeeze in a few more beach days! Just make sure to pack these beach beauty essentials before you go.
Hopefully it goes without saying that you’ll need some form of sunscreen for your beach trip, since sun damage is one of the top causes of premature aging. Our favorite sunscreen? PERFECT Sunscreen SPF 50+. This broad spectrum sun protection cream uses a special polymer technology for maximum skin protection without a greasy feel or white residue.
Hint: apply sunscreen 30 minutes before hitting the sand to allow the product to sink into your skin and start working its magic. And don’t forget to apply sunscreen to overlooked areas like your neck and hands.
2. Lip Balm
The beach is fun, but all that sun, salt, and sand can leave you with parched lips. Protect your pout by packing Healthy Glow Lip Balm in your beach beauty bag. This tinted lip treatment pulls double duty by hydrating your lips and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it has a gorgeous buildable pink tint.
3. Sun Protection for Your Hair
We’ve covered the importance of sun protection for your skin, but what about your hair? UV rays can dry out your hair, leaving it brittle and prone to breakage. Plus, the sun can actually alter your hair’s hue, especially if you color your hair. Protect your strands by spritzing hair with sunscreen formulated for hair. Better yet? Just wear a broad rimmed hat!
Wearing sunglasses is another important beach beauty tip. The sun’s rays naturally cause you to squint. But over time, all that squinting can lead to fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Prevent those fine lines by wearing sunglasses whenever you’re outdoors during the daytime.
