It’s that time of year again, get your beach bag ready and pick out the perfect bathing suit. And just as important, make sure you have all the beauty and wellness products that make for a perfect vacation. Listed below are some of the best skin, hair and beauty products that will give you a glamorous beach trip. From moisturizing sunscreens to brightening highlighters these products and tips will keep the sunburn away while giving you a beautiful beach glow.
The most important product to pack: Sunscreen.
Make sure to lather up every few hours, and even more once you jump in the water. Sunscreen will keep you moisturized and protected from the suns damaging rays. Some favorites include: SunBum SPF 30, Aveeno Baby Natural Sunscreen SPF 50 and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 55.
After a long day in the sun it is important to replenish your skin with moisturizers. Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme is a great anti-aging moisturizer and Keihl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator hydrates with antioxidant protection.
Natural Tip: You can never go wrong with Aloe Vera or Coconut oil, which help ease the worst sunburns and are also beneficial for skin hydration.
If you want a tan even before you’ve touched the sand, self tanners and tanning moisturizers give you a pre-beach glow to boost your skin color.
Maui Babe Tanning Lotion is good for right before you head out to the beach, it adds color to your skin that gets stronger throughout the day.
L’Oreal Sublime Tanning Serum is great to apply the night before an event, and doesn’t come out streaky.
Caudalie Divine Legs Tanning Lotion, is a pricey, yet quality brand that adds the perfect tan on the spot or lathered on the night before.
