Our family goes down to Nags Head for a week every summer vacation. It’s a week to enjoy the beach and time with our family. We leave in a few days, and of course, are just now starting to think about packing! Every girl needs to have the perfect beach essentials when traveling for a week or even just a day. First things first, you need the perfect bathing suit and your favorite sunnies! We thought we would add in our other favorite beach essentials that we use and love! 🙂
1. Yes to Pomegranate Lip Balm (SPF 15)
Any lip balm with SPF is crucial for a beach day! Having sunburn on your lips can be so painful and make them look chapped and no one wants that! The Yes to Pomegranate is our current favorite because it moisturizes while also protecting your lips from the sun!
This one is a MUST. Protecting yourself from the sun is so so so important! You don’t want to look 50 when you’re 30, am I right!? Our favorite is Neutrogena but it doesn’t matter the brand just make sure you get something that has SPF 50 or higher and reapply, reapply, reapply! 🙂
3. Ocean Potion Aloe Lotion
Cute rhyme right? But really.. after a long day in the sun, Aloe lotion will provide hydrating and soothing relief from your sun dried skin! Plus it’ll leave your skin super silky and smooth!
4. Water Bottle
This summer, the heat has been somewhat unbearable! It is important to stay hydrated while out on the beach! Water also keeps your skin looking fresh and it’ll make your summer glow look even better.
5. A Good Read
While you’re soaking up the sun, pull out your favorite book! At the moment, Lani is reading Paper Towns by John Green! The movie comes out July 24th, but you can’t go see the movie without reading the book of course! 🙂
Other book suggestions from friends have been..
Killing Monica by Candace Bushnell
Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close
Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
Cheers to a super fun, beachy summer!
