Beach Essentials

Hello, everyone! As of tomorrow it'll officially be summer! With summer comes freedom, flip flops and sunny beach days with your friends. I don't go to the beach very often, but when I do, I make sure I'm prepared for anything. Today I'm going to take you through some of my beach essentials and prep you for some fun in the sun. Enjoy!

You can dry yourself with them, have picnics on them, and use them as blankets. No more sand in places where the sun don't shine!

Duh! Even if you're not a massive fan of swimming, still bring your suit. Maybe you'll want to get a tan, or maybe you'll just get too hot wearing your normal clothes.

One of the most vital things, no matter where you go, is staying hydrated. When you're out in the sun all day surrounded by water, you can forget that you actually have to drink water in order to stay hydrated! I am guilty of this many a time. Learn from my mistakes and drink your water!

Protect your precious eyes! Not only do they save your lookers from the sun, but they also make you look pretty cool.

Waterproof Mascara
If you're someone that doesn't feel completely comfortable without makeup, waterproof is the way to go for your beach day. A full face of makeup isn't very ideal, and most of it would rub or wear off instantly. Personally, I find that mascara has the most extreme impact on my appearance and gives my the most confidence, so why not bring it to the beach?!

I cannot stress this enough. Bring SPF in all forms; lip balm, sunscreen, moisturizer, etc. The higher the SPF, the better. This prevents your skin from getting fried under the sun and possibly leading to skin diseases such as cancer. We wouldn't want that!

An absolute essential. Although beach days are fun, they're also extremely draining. You need to keep up your energy, preferably with a healthy snack. If you're going to be there for a while, why not make a picnic out of it?! Fruits and veggies, dips, and sandwiches make for great travel food, perfect for a day on the beach! As long as you don't get sand on anything.

An Extra Set of Clothes
Just in case your clothes get wet or dirty.

That's it for today's post! I hope this has prepared you for your next sunny day on the beach. Tell me about your beach essentials in the comments section below!

Until next time,
