It's officially that time of year and we don't know about you, but we couldn't be any more excited. In addition to shedding layers and switching up our wardrobes, it's also time to take a closer look at beachside beauty. Since many summer days are spent lounging at the beach or poolside, it's important to stock your beach bag with the best products on the market to refresh, protect and perfect your skin and hair.
First, find your perfect beach bag (we love the State metallic tote, $80, that looks great, carries everything and also happens to help children in need) and then take your pick from the 24 beauty buys ahead to help perfect your summer look. Cheers to your most beautiful summer!
Just because you're at the beach doesn't mean you should have to sacrifice a lit bone structure. Instead of coating your cheekbones in highlighter, why not add extra sun protection that just so happens to glow? This invisible, illuminating dry oil stick for face, chest and shoulders will give you a donut-like glaze that prevents against sunburn.
Tired of the thick, sticky sunscreen of your childhood? Good news: UVA and UVB protection has come a long way. Case in point: this fast-absorbing sun fluid that provides daily protection to all skin types. Formulated with alguronic acid and rich botanicals, this ultra-light sunscreen works well both on its own and under makeup.
Where many sunscreens are chock-full of chemicals and topically drying ingredients, this nourishing, protecting organic sun protection stands apart. Formulated with non-clogging emollients like argan, apricot, avocado and jojoba, you can expect intense moisture and a repaired skin barrier with every use.
If you love the look of makeup and don't want to head to the beach without a little extra coverage, you better make room in your beach bag for this mineral sunscreen. Its universal tint and diamond powder light-scattering optics make for a well-lit visage from every angle. You can wear it under makeup or all on its own for a gorgeous no-makeup makeup appeal.
