Our Top 10 Beach Essentials
Posted on 23 June 2015
We don’t know about you, but when summer is here, we immediately want to hit the beach to feel that ocean breeze and sand between our toes! But nothing is worse than forgetting something at home when you’re already at the beach! Check out our beach essentials and recommendations so that you have a carefree day by the water!
Sunscreen - If you know you’ll be spending the day under the sun, you gotta make sure you apply some sunscreen! Even if you want to tan, it’s important to protect your skin and have a sunscreen of at least SPF 50.
Sunglasses - Don’t let those hasty UV rays damage your eyes! Protect your peepers and look cute at the same time!
Portable speakers - Just plug the speakers into your smartphone and start jamming out to your favorite songs with everyone! Helpful tip: put your speakers in a Ziploc bag to make sure it doesn’t get wet!
Hand sanitizer - The beach is fun….but it can be pretty dirty too! Make sure to sanitize your hands before you touch anything that’s going to be near your face!
Beach towel - A no brainer for the beach. We recommend Shantell Martin’s limited edition amFAR towel! Not only will you be rocking the beach with a funky cool towel, the money from your purchase will go towards developing a cure for AIDS! Get it here.
A pair of flip flops or sandals - You can find really affordable and adorable flip flops at so many stores these days!
Floppy hat - A floppy hat is the perfect way to protect your face and eyes from the harsh rays of the sun while still looking stylish!
Snacks - With all the fun you’re going to have at the beach, you’re gonna get hungry. Make sure to bring some light and delicious snacks to munch on!
Lip balm with spf - Don’t neglect your lips!
They need some SPF love too! One of our favorite lip balms is Maudes Original Lavender Lip Balm! Not only can you use it on your lips, but also rub it on any part of your skin that needs some extra moisture! Check it out here.
Cute beach bag - And of course, you gotta have a cute beach bag to hold all your beach essentials! Check this super colorful and fun beach bag kit!
