5 Essentials For A Beach Day
In order to be comfortable for an all day beach day, there are 5 beach essentials that I personally like to bring!
5 Beach Essentials For A Beach Day
Avoid damaging UV exposure by always protecting your skin with SPF. Make sure you are reapplying every couple of hours and overtime you get out of the water. My holy grail face sunscreen is Neutrogena Age Shield Face sunscreen. This particular sunscreen is a favorite of mine because it has 110 SPF and does not cause any irritation or breakouts on my face!
2. Umbrella/ Sun Tent
I don’t know about you but I sometimes end up with a sun headache when I’m out in the sun for too long. To avoid that, I like to always bring an umbrella or sun tent! Let’s face it, too much sun (especially in one sitting) is simply not good!
3. Beach Chair/ Oversized Blanket
When I got to the beach, I either always bring a beach chair or an oversized blanket. My beach chair shown in the photo below is from Roraima. This one is lightweight, comfortable, and even has pockets to put my phone in.
Even though some people may find bringing a cooler to the beach a pain, I find it a must! Nothing beats having ice cold water after baking out in the sun. I also like to pack watermelon and sandwiches in the cooler!
Just like your skin, your eyes can get sun damage as well. When you are lying on the beach for a long period of time, it is best to wear sunglasses. Keep in mind, not all sunglasses have UVA/UVB protection, so you have to check if your sunglasses lens have it! In the photos below, I’m wearing affordable Woosh Sunnies and Ray Ban Erika Sunglasses (they both have 100% UVA/UVB protection).
Now tell me, what are your beach essentials?
