Today I’m sharing my #beachdaymusts with @adoreme , summer is finally here (well kind of) and that means a lot of us will be taking trips to the beach! There is nothing more relaxing than chilling out on the beach but there are always risks with sunbathing, so today i’m here to show you my absolute musts and all the other fun bits and bobs I like to take to the beach.
Sun cream – I have put this one first because it’s an absolute must have!! you should always protect your skin from the sun by applying sun cream all over the skin. The sun can cause a lot of damage and also ages your skin. I like to use Garnier Ambre Solaire because it’s a thin liquid texture that’s non greasy. There is nothing worse than trying to blend thick sun cream onto my skin and being left with white streaks.
Sun hat and glasses – Sunglasses and sun hats protect our lovely little eyes and head from the sun so make sure you have those bad boys on! p.s sun stroke and squinty eyes is not a good look.
Water – As much as we love the sun, it dehydrates us. So making sure we have water next to us is a must have! I like to use these Beehive Drinking Jars because they stop spillage and are easy to drink from the straw.
Entertainment – Now the boring (but very important!!) stuff is out the way we can move onto the fun bits! When sunbathing I find myself getting a little bored after a while so I’ll usually pop my earphones in and listen to a playlist on Spotify or I’ll read a book to escape for a bit.
Bikini – Bikinis bikinis bikinis! I just love them! Adore Me have a huge range of different
so no excuses to not rock that bikini girls 😉 Also a cool lil tip is wearing a bikini under your outfit so you don’t have to face that awkwardly getting changed underneath a towel malarkey. I like to wear a pair of denim shorts and a kimono.
Sandals – Sandals can add so much to fun our beach wear outfits and stop us from burning our feet on that hot sand! My advice is to buy some that are easy to just slip on and off to save hassle.
Towel – Use me to dry you or to lay down on.
Hair ties and grips – I don’t want to spend all my time at the beach pushing my hair back from my face so hair ties are always handy. I like these Unicorn Popband Hair Ties they look really cute just worn around the wrist too!
Make up – If like me, you don’t like wearing make up when the sun is shining purely because we just melt it off and our mascara ends up half way down our face then I advise you to just wear a lipstick. A matte lipstick because we don’t want sand stuck to our lips when we see a hot guy walk past now do we? I like to use a bold red lipstick and let the lips do the talking as it gives a pop of colour to my face when I’m not wearing any make up. If you’re not wearing lippy then I advise wearing a lip balm. I notice that my lips tend to get dry when I’ve been in the sun so it’s important to keep them supa smooooooth. Another thing I like to do when sun bathing is paint my nails to match my bikini. Is that a little OCD? I dunno, maybe. I usually use Revlon 210 Retro Pink. Dry shampoo is also a must have. Dry shampoo is always useful at the beach for when my hair gets greased up with sun cream so that’s definitely worth packing! Finally, I like to bring a cleansing water to lift off any sun cream, sand and dirt that has collected on my face throughout the day (gross) I use Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
Camera – If you love capturing memories then it’s definitely worth it to take a camera to the beach. Polaroid camera’s are very useful because they are easy to just pop into your bag and the photos are instant which means you don’t have to wait until you get home… to recharge the camera…. then find your camera lead…. then wait for all the pictures to load on your laptop….. haha you get where I’m going!
Moisturize – And finally, moisturize. My skin likes to play up after sunbathing and usually gets dry. Using an after sun or moisturizer helps to keep the skin healthy and hydrated.
I hope you enjoyed my tips and must haves for the beach! What are your favourite #beachdaymusts ?
