Whether you’re staying put this summer or jetting off on vacay, one place in common everyone visits during the season, is the beach. Because, let’s face it – there’s nothing quite calming as lying with your toes in the water and wind in your hair. Your skin and hair might not agree with this sentiment though because the high temperature, salt-laden air and sand can do a number on it. That’s why you must make sure you pack these five beauty essentials in your beach bag to keep your hair and skin protected.
Top of the list is sunscreen. Besides making it your essential all year round, make sure you carry it to the beach or get ready for those dreadful tan lines that won’t budge for weeks. Since your skin will be under direct sunlight and in water, make sure you opt for a broad spectrum formula that’s waterproof and reapply it every few hours.
2. Face Wipes
Stay a while at the beach and the sand can seem to take over everything. To keep your face clear of it, carry a handy pack of refreshing face wipes along. When you want your skin to feel clean from hours of sun and sand, simply wipe down.
3. Leave-in conditioner
When tresses come in contact with salty beach air, they become frizzy and wild like they’ve got a mind of their own. To keep them in check, apply a leave-in conditioner before you hit the water. Made to smoothen and condition hair outside of the bathroom, this product is perfect for naturally silky hair without any fuss.
4. Lip Balm
Here’s a little summer tip for you: your favourite lip balm isn’t only for winter days and glossy puckers. Like your skin, your lips too need moisture and sun protection. Thus, make sure your lip balm has SPF protection and a cooling flavour to keep your pout cool and shiny.
5. Face Mist
In the middle of a beach day, just as you’d chug water, give your skin a boost of refreshment too. Carry a face mist and spray it over your face and neck if the temperature soars too high. It’ll lend moisture and calm skin without any stickiness.
