Here comes the sun do do do do, and we say it’s the best time of year to spend days outside soaking up all the sun rays we can get. Before you plan the perfect picnic with your friends and pack up the beach volleyball to get a game in the sand going, you need to ensure that you are sea-side ready in all aspects! Take a look at our perfect beach beauty tips to get you going.
Trim and Proper:
First things first, you’re going to be in a bathing suit and like it or not, that means a little grooming, err– everywhere, needs to take place. For the perfect all-around solution turn to ultra-moisturizing shave cream. It can be used in and out of the shower, making it ideal for the big haul or just a little bikini line touch-up. The cream itself is packed with natural conditioning oils, shea butter, and antioxidant vitamins E and C to provide 24 hours of ultra-soothing moisture. Plus, it’s enriched with skin protectants to help prevent nicks and razor bumps!
For model-worthy silky-smooth legs, follow up your shaving routine with cranberry & pomegranate sugar scrub. Scrub your way to smoother skin while still getting your sugar fix! Exfoliating crystals mingle with pomegranate oil, cranberry seed, and shea butter to gently polish and condition your skin. They leave skin feeling healthy, smooth and beautifully glowing and ready to spend a day in the sun.
Post-scrub, be sure to seal in the smooth with cranberry & pomegranate body butter which will naturally nourish and protect skin. A fruity blend of antioxidant-rich cranberry seed and pomegranate oils along with hydrating cocoa and jojoba butters, it seeps into your skin leaving it feeling soft, supple and seriously smooth. For once your clean-shaven and silky-smooth legs will last longer than a few days!
Sun, sand, and water increase your need for sunscreen because of the way they reflect the sun’s rays. This means for a day spent poolside or sprawled out in the sand you need to lather up. While it seems that all sunscreens do the same job, not all were created equal. Use something that has at least SPF 30. Also choose a sunscreen that boasts “broad specturm” on the label meaning it will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Cherie always suggest to read skin care review before using any sunscreen.
Skip the heavy cream foundation and coverup– something you shouldn’t use in the summer anyways– and turn to your new beach buddy, the BB Cream. Not only does it smooth and correct blotchiness, red bumps, and even skin tone, it also has SPF 30! It’ll keep your skin hydrated and protected for a long day spent in the sun.
To Keep In Your Bag:
- A Bottle of Water: Go green and choose one you can refill. It will free up space in your bag & be light-weight instead of lugging multiple bottles around.
- Waterproof Mascara: In case you need a little touch up or are headed out afterwards, a little mascara will help brighten your eyes.
- 6 Degrees Hair Ties: These handmade lace and elastic hair ties won’t kink your hair and are a stylish accessory to wear. Even better? Five percent of all sales are donated to their primary charity, First Descents.
