We are fast approaching our hot summer days and it’s important to be stocked up with your beach beauty bag essentials! Our beach bag usually carries our sun hat, sunglasses + water bottle but there is so many amazing beauty products that you can add to your beach bag.
As a makeup artist you will always hear me preaching sunscreen. I know we love that golden glow but I recommend getting a spray tan or using self tanner instead of tanning in the sun.
Here are some of my favourite sunscreens to pack in your beach bag!
Color Science Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush on Shield SPF 50 – wear stand alone or over makeup as this all mineral skin shield provides complete protection!
Another favourite sunscreen is Monat’s Sun Veil broad-spectrum and mineral based sunscreen. I love how hydrating and lightweight this daily sunscreen is! Also Skin Cancer Foundation approved for daily use.
If you are looking for a full body sunscreen the Coola Classic Body Spray SPF 30 is an amazing choice. This sheer, water- and sweat-resistant organic formula is packed with antioxidants and skin-nourishing ingredients, and absorbs fast with no greasy feel. Vegan, Organic + Reef Safe, this makes a perfect choice for all day sun protection.
To keep our hair protected and looking super hydrated and fresh, I reached out to lead North American color and styling educator for Eleven Australia Klay Murry for his recommendations.
Klay recommended three products that are must haves for your beach bag:
Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment is a must have as it has UVA AND UVB Filters to help protect against sun damage. It can also repel chlorine and repair split ends, so perfect if you are going to the pool.
If you are looking for that beachy look, Eleven Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray is great for activating natural texture and wave. Klay also recommends having Eleven Australia Smooth and Shine Serum to help tame frizzy ends and flyaways which we all know happens from our day at the beach.
Another great item for your beach bag is the Wet Brush Go Green Detangler. The perfect detangling brush after a shower or at the beach.
I always love to keep my lips hydrated and glossy especially in the summer time – my new favourite find is the Arbonne LipOil Hydrating Lip Serum. These oils create a plump looking pout with mega shine and gloss all while hydrating your lips. Its a gloss and balm all in one! They come in three different varieties- Lychee, Dragonfruit and Strawberry
Another tried and true staple for your beach bag is the Sara Happ Lip Slip Balm. This rich lip gloss has a luxurious combination of restorative natural oils in a comfortable cashmere-soft cream will leave your lips hydrated, smooth and glossy.
And last but not least if you are going to the beach with your kiddos, packing the ABC Arbonne Baby Care Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is perfect for healthy sun protection.
This unscented gentle lotion with a mineral sunscreen ingredient for broad spectrum sun protection is essential for sun protection for your little ones.
Happy Beach Days!
