After the harsh rains and winters all we want is the sun beaming upon us. Welcome to summer season, which is a perfect season for the ultimate fun, icecreams, voguish clothesline and yes beaches. It is impossible to miss the beach fun in the summers, and if you are invited to a beach party or if you are planning a beach getaway, then girls this post is just for you.
Summer and beaches are an ideal combination of fun, but if not protected they can do deadly damage to your face and body. But girls we care for you and that’s why we share with you the top 6 beauty essentials that would protect your skin and let you enjoy the beach at ease. Take a look below at our top beach essentials that are a must have in your beach bag.
A sunscreen lotion or spray is a must have during the summers. Ideally, no girl would step out without slathering sunscreen over her skin. So, for a beach outing, we recommend you to pick a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher. Also, since you would be in the water a lot it would be great to choose a water-resistant sunscreen to protect yourself from harsh UV rays.
A sunscreen with a good SPF protects your skin from wrinkles, dry skin, and sunburn. Make sure your sunscreen protects your skin from breakouts due to sweat.
Tip: Do apply sunscreen on your nails as overexposure to UV rays can make your nails brittle and soft. You could even try cool nail art ideas to jazz up your nails.
If you are at the beach, you are sure to sweat, so if you don’t want cakey makeup due to sweat it is best to carry blotting paper.
Blotting papers are not only for makeup lovers. They are hygienic and a great way to wipe oil and dirt from your face, giving you a refreshed feeling. There are a myriad of brands that sell blotting sheets, so choose the one that wouldn’t harm your skin and keep your face fresh and bright.
Don’t forget lip balms when you hit the beach, as even your lips can get damaged due to the UVA/UVB rays. Along with your face and body, protect your lips with a hydrating, SPF lip balm which isn’t sticky and has a natural tint.
You can look for a long hour, moisturizing lip balm that can hydrate and save your lips from sunburn. Shield your soft lips from the sun rays with a good quality lip balm and enjoy your day at the beach!
Yes, girls, this is an important beach product that would protect and rehydrate your skin. After-sun lotion is a moisturizer that makes your skin supple, soft and soothes sunburns.
Choose lotions with aloe vera and Vitamin E ingredients that would act as a coolant to your skin and relieve peeling and dryness. After a long day under the sun, smear after-sun lotion and pamper your skin from sun damage and dryness. If your skin looks tanned after your beach party then try some homemade face masks for flawless skin.
Sun-protection Hair Spray
You are going to spend your day in the sun, salt and wind so give a thought about your tassels too. The sun rays easily damage the hair pigmentation and can cause fading hair color.
Also, the UV rays of the sun have a capability of dulling and drying the hair texture. So it is best to carry a sun-blocking hair spray that would do to prevent dryness and restore damaged hair. Look for hair sprays with SPF that protects hair up to 16 hours, they would be extremely helpful for the beach day.
Tip: Make sure you wear a summer hat that would protect the scalp from sun rays and keep you cool.
Match your fashionable beach outfit with stylish sunnies that are just designed for the summer. Uber cool shades that would not only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but even make you look modish.
If you are not so much into sunglasses, pick up inexpensive sunglasses to totally rock your beach look. But don’t forget to check the sun protection tint in the shades.
