The Perfect Beach Bag

With summer in full swing, we’re spending our weekends enjoying nice long beach days! To help you get in the spirit, we’ve put together a list of must-haves to keep in your beach bag when you head out for a day in the sun.

• Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 50:

This is the first thing on our list every day, but especially when we’re about to be outside all day! Compact, light, and easy to reapply, this is a staple for any prepared beach goer. Apply liberally before sun exposure, and reapply every two hours.

• Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35:

You may not know it, but your lips can get sunburnt too! Get a little pop of color and a whole lot of protection by applying to lips every two hours during sun exposure! Try Clear or Champagne for a natural look, or go bold with Merlot or Siren.

• A good book:

If you’re feeling funny, try out Bossypants by Tina Fey. For an edge-of-your-seat thriller, pick up Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. The beautifully dramatic Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann is sure to intrigue you no matter what mood you’re in.

• Water bottle:

Staying hydrated is an essential part of a beach day! Personally, we’re loving BKR water bottles right now. Their glass and silicone designs are both beautiful and handy. Check out their current collection here:

• Sunforgettable Setting Mist:

Not only does our Setting Mist protect from UV rays, it also doubles as a soothing after-sun product! Spritz lightly after using your Mineral Brush, and spritz again once you’re out of the sun.

• Beach Towel:

A cute beach towel should never be out of reach! Check out Mara Hoffman’s adorable eye catching beach towels in a variety of colors and styles!

The most important part of a beach day is making sure you’re protecting your skin!

Using sunscreen properly drastically decreases the risk of developing skin cancer, as well as decreasing signs of aging. For full protection, apply Sunforgettable Face Primer SPF 30 before you leave the house, followed by Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 50, and finish off with Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35 and Setting Mist.Sticking to this regimen will keep your skin healthy and beautiful!
