So you have bought your designer bikini and matching cover up, but have you made sure that you have everything you need packed in a cute beach bag for your day on the sands? Don’t worry ladies, we are here to help you out with a list of everything you will need to make sure that your day at the beach is absolutely amazing. Shall we begin?
This is the most important of them all. You cannot and should not skimp on it. Protecting your skin from the harsh rays of the sun is so important. Invest in a good sunblock with a high SPF – we recommend an SPF of 30 or more. Wrinkles and sunburn are just not worth it. Also pick up a yummy lip balm with SPF to take care of your lips. Shy away from lip gloss because the ingredients actually dry your lips out more rather than protecting them.
Wide Brimmed Hat
Again, this is absolutely crucial for protecting your hair and skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Pick up a cute wide brimmed to channel your inner Sophia Loren – we are digging huge straw hats and sleek fedoras. They look super cute with a ruffled two piece or sexy monokini so we seriously suggest that you pick one up, pronto!
A Cute Cover Up
Sea breeze can lead to quite the chill in the evenings, so it is important to have something to cover up with as the weather cools down. You can snag a cute sarong to tie around your waist. Sarongs can also double up as scarves, impromptu bandeau dresses or even a comfy pillow if you feel like taking an afternoon nap. If sarongs are not your thing, pick up a flowing kaftan instead. We are head-over-heels in love with the luxurious silk Goddess Kaftan by Sauvage or the the very on trend crochet tunic Bahama White by PilyQ! If you’re looking for something to cover yourself up with and that sets you apart from everyone else on the beach, than don’t miss out on our wide range of designer coverups with new styles added every day.
Look your best
To get that beautiful rosy glow on your cheeks we have the best solution for you. NARS multipurpose cream-to-powder makeup gives a minimalists glow and is super easy to apply without mirror. A must have for any beach-babe !
Water proof make up is one of those things that you usually forget until you are already on the sands and find yourself stuck in a sticky situation. Let us remind you that smudgy mascara, which makes one look eerily like a raccoon, is not appealing at all. Plan ahead and pick up some good waterproof mascara with a long-lasting effect so that you lashes look thick and glamorous all day long!
A Big Bottle of Water
You cannot skip this step, sorry. H20 is so important to keep your energy levels up when the sun is beating down. Dehydration has a lot of negative health effects including nausea and sunstroke. Pick up a big bottle or two of this magic potion on your way to the beach, to ensure that your skin is hydrated and feel fabulous. It is also a good idea to get some water-rich fruits to snack on – grapes and oranges are our favourites.
A Good Book or Magazine
For us, beach time = me time. It is always fun to catch up on reading while lounging around at the beach. Pick up the latest issue of Vogue or a book which you have been reading for a while and are dying to finish. Plug in your iPod with your favourite music playing as you read, and you are good to go!
