Some would say that your only worry should be if the tide is going to reach your chair, and although that does cross my mind whenever I’m relaxing by the shoreline, I also have found myself worrying about my skin and hair while I’m at the beach. It’s normal to worry about them because our skin + hair tend to dry up with sun and saltwater exposure, and especially when you’ve got treated hair. But throughout the years, I have found great products that I can’t live without them, for whenever we head over to a tropical destination. I have compiled a list for you guys of a few products that I have been using for a while now and a few other ones that I have recently added to my beach bag!
Sunscreen is extremely important no matter the occasion, I normally wear sunscreen every single day and I try to make sure that my daily moisturizer for both my body & face contain some amount of SPF. But of course, whenever you’re headed to the beach you need much more than just a little amount of SPF, so these are the 2 sunscreens I like to use while I am laying out in the sun. I actually don’t wear any tanning lotion, I prefer not to and I don’t really feel like I need it, because I tend to get a nice natural tan with these two sunscreens.
Ladies! Please moisturize after laying out in the sun!!! It’s such an important step that most women tend to forget, but trust me you will notice the difference right after the 1st application. Whenever you lay out in the sun, your skin tends to get dry and moisturizing it with some Aloe will definitely help bond your skin together. What I would normally do, was that once we showered back at the room I would moisturize with Aloe all throughout my body.
Like I said before, moisturizing is needed especially after a day out in the sun. So I personally like to ‘extra moisturize’, after the Aloe dries up, I go back and usually moisturize with a regular lotion. But I recently purchased this specific lotion, because of it’s great reviews. This natural glow moisturizer is truly a game changer ladies, it gradually created a flawless, natural-looking color while also hydrating my skin!
I’m not lying when I say that I use this lip balm on the daily, but I feel like lip balm is also very important when you’re headed to the beach! Just like your skin and hair, your lips tend to get dry and chappie, which is NOT cute! So make sure you get your favorite lip balm and stick it in your beach bag NOW!
So when it comes to Olaplex, there’s only good things to say! I got these 4 products after I decided to lighten my hair and now I can’t live without them! They are a bit pricey, but worth every penny, because you will notice the difference in your hair once you use them. I basically washed my hair every single day that we were at the beach, and after every wash I would apply Olaplex No 6, which is a styling hair cream. The styling hair cream helped with keeping the frizz away and would make my hair extra soft. Now with Olaplex No 3, I only used it once throughout our whole trip. This specific product is a hair mask, so it’s not meant to be used every single day, using it just once did the trick!
A good detangling hair brush is a total must, especially after you get out of the water and you just want to brush out your hair – I would totally recommend this one because I’ve noticed that it doesn’t tug & pull my hair!
I always like to have my hair feel smooth, so whenever I was out of the water and ready to sunbathe, I would splat some of this coconut milk conditioner onto my hair and brush it through. It would obviously condition my hair and give it these cute ‘beachy wavey’ style!
And of course, you can’t forget your serum! I would apply this every single day before and after applying the coconut milk conditioner. I’ve even found it very useful for whenever I would want to style my hair up on a bun or ponytail, rather than using gel or moose!
Hopefully you will find these products useful for your next beachy getaway, and as always Happy Friday!✨💛🌴
XOXO, Yesi 🥂
