Summer Beach Essentials
If you’re headed out to the beach this summer then read on for your must have skin products to have a flawless time. I’m getting ready to pack up next week for the Oregon coast so I wanted to share with you your must have beach items for before and after a trip to the beach that you’ll want to have on hand.
1. Bronzing Lotion
Now for beach prep there is one item that I’ll be using for my body. Let’s be real, I have kids, I don’t like cold water so there is very little chance I’ll actually be going IN the water. *Beauty confession, I don’t wear sunscreen on my legs because they are in this perpetual stage of pasty so I’ll be lathering up with the versatile Bronzing Lotion.
You can check out our Bronzing Lotion tutorial & video demo where you can learn how to use it 4 different ways as a contouring cream, cream bronzer, tinted moisturizer or body bronzer or shop Bronzing lotion now.
This is a great beach item, because if you do need a lotion during the day if you’re feeling dry you can use this AND look like you got a sun kissed glow instead of having that lobster look.
It’s super important to protect your skin when you go out into the elements for long periods of time. When I’m going out for long extended times this is my favorite sunscreen.
Babyganics. I generally like the ingredients, the broad spectrum coverage, there are no synthetic fragrances, parabens, nano particles and I really love the feel. It glides really well, soaks in and offers great protection.
Do you guys have any favorite natural sunscreens?
3. Nail Polish
