Say no to sunburn
Sometimes we think that by putting on one layer of
sunscreen, we’re set for the day. Even though that would be super convenient,
your 9 a.m. application will leave ya more than a little red at 3 p.m. Keep a
tube of sunscreen in your bag this summer and reapply every few hours to ensure
you don’t get a painful sunburn. We love how this sunscreen goes on with no
shiny residue or stickiness. Plus, it’s a lotion rather than an aerosol, so
it’s good for Mother Earth, too.

Have you ever gotten sunburnt on your lips? Major ouch! This
lip balm with SPF will help to ensure that your lips stay moisturized and safe
from the sun. If your lips are already burned and chapped, the aloe vera and
Vitamin E in the balm will sooth them. And get this: it comes in tons of yummy
flavors, so you can grab your fave or test out a few new ones for the summer.

Beat down breakouts
There’s nothing worse than when you can feel the sweat drying
on your face and you just know a breakout is coming. Avoid that gross feeling
by carrying a pack of face wipes around with you this summer. When you need to
freshen your sweaty face, pull one of these out and just wipe the grime away. Be
sure to re-apply your sunscreen afterwards, though, to keep yourself protected
from a totally different skin disaster.

When you know it’s going to be a scorching hot and humid
day, you just can’t trust your regular mascara. Bring out the big guns and
apply waterproof mascara instead. Keep a tube in your bag in case you want to
glam it up during the day. Whether you decide to swim at the pool or beach,
this mascara will stay put without any trouble.

Tame the mane
Getting your hair tie knotted up in your perfect beach hair
isn’t exactly fun. These ribbon hair ties last forever and won’t get tangled up
in your locks. Stash extras in your bags so that your girlfriends can borrow
them when the ocean wind whips their hair into their faces and they’re jealous
of your ‘do.
