Beach Bag Essentials
Summer is finally here and I have my beach bag ready! In Florida, the sun is always a part of our daily life so weather you go to the pool or the beach, you will definitely want to have the items inside this bag. I got this beach bag in a hotel in West Palm beach but I’ve linked other bags I like below.
First, SKIN: Sunscreen is the most important item and it should always be not only inside your beach bag, but also in your daily purse as well. Sunscreen protects your skin against cancer and prevents the sun from causing dark skin pigments (freckles) or even wrinkles. I like this one from Moroccanoil because it smells great and is very light on the skin- not thick like other sun protectors. This one is SPF 15 but if am going to be exposed to the sun all day, I use their SPF 50. When the day is over and I am leaving the beach, I apply their After-Sun Milk which hydrates and nourishes my skin after being out in the sun all day. I also apply it after showering that day since it enhances and extends your tan.
If you peak through my bag you will also find a BITE Agave Lip Mask. It protects your lips from getting cracked and dry from the sun and keeps them hydrated. You can wear lipstick on top of it or get one with a slight tint of color.
Second, BEAUTY: When it comes to make up, I bring three items with me. Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonderglow which I put on top of my light foundation and gives me the perfect glow. I also pack her Beach Stick (Shade- Moon Beach) which can be used on both my cheeks and lips so it is very practical. You can easily reapply it if you need to during the day without having to take multiple items from your makeup bag. It does not fill heavy or thick on the skin or the lips. You can see how it looks on the close up of my face (my typical selfie- LOL).
Last but not least, I never forget my Victoria’s Secret’s Heavenly Body Mist. It has a soft but long lasting scent which makes me feel refreshed even if I am lying on the beach for several hours.
Third, FASHION: The bathing suit!! There are so many different kinds and forms! This bathing suit is linked below. I love the color and that it has an off the shoulder top. Since it is off the shoulders, you can wear it as a tube top with shorts and use a skirt cover up after getting out of the water. Finally, I grab my sandals, favorite shades (Tom Ford), a BIG hat and I am good to go!
Thank you for stoping by and checking this post! Love you guys… Enjoy the Summer!! XOXO
