The '80s are back, and better than ever. This summer is all about bright colors and neon lights, so why not add onto this theme with a colorful hair accessory that'll electrify your 'do while paying homage to a totally wicked decade.
Whether you're going for a classic pony, or a half-up, half-down look, the Conair Scunci assorted set comes with five scrunchies that include a mix of different colors and patterns that you can add to your beach bag essentials.
This set is a must-have to take your look up a few notches for wherever your summer ventures end up taking you!
Don't worry, we all end up losing a scrunchie or two when we're busy having so much fun, so at least you have backup ready for when a twisty decides to embark on its own journey someplace else.
Stay forever young by making sure you incorporate sunscreen into your everyday skincare routine -you can start by adding it to your beach bag essentials.
Now that we don't have our parents rubbing globs of sunscreen all over our faces for us, it's time to finally be responsible ourselves and win the fight against strong UV rays.
Sunscreen doesn't always have to make us look like lifeguards with white-sunscreen covered noses, but add some tint and color that best fits our complexion.
The Sum Bum Mineral Sunscreen Face Tint is lightweight, and at SPF 30, protects while achieving a beautifully blended look with its tinted formula. Summer is meant for soft skin and a beautiful glow.
If you thought that sunscreen was only for your skin, that's absolutely not the case! Hair needs effective UV protection too - prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays can strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness, brittleness, and increased frizz.
This can make the hair feel coarse and less manageable. In addition, UV radiation can weaken the protein structure of the hair, making it more prone to breakage and split ends. This can result in hair that appears thinner and less healthy.
Luckily, there is a way to protect your hair from the UV rays - simply add a thermal heat protectant to your beach bag essentials! The NuMe Watch Me Werk thermal heat protectant is a great method to protect your beautiful mane from the absorption of the UVA and UVB rays.
Made with Caviar Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil and antioxidants, it moisturizes the hair and protects it from heat-related damage, whether it's the sun or your thermal hair styling tool. Definitely a must for the summer!
A summer holiday usually means one thing - disrupting your hair washing routine because you are so busy with all these wonderful adventures! Here is where dry shampoo comes to the rescue - perfect to refresh the hair between washes or manage oily hair.
It absorbs excess oil and sebum from the scalp and hair, making it a quick and efficient way to refresh your mane on busy days or simply if you don't want to be washing your hair too much.
Having a packed beach essentials bag? Don't worry, bobby pins are as tiny as they are adorable, and you can easily add them without having your bag overflowing.
Wind, water, and beach activities can cause your hair to become unruly. Having bobby pins on hand allows you to quickly secure loose strands or pin up your hair if it gets in your face while you're enjoying the beach.
Bobby pins can also serve as a quick fix for unexpected hair mishaps, such as a broken hair tie or a loose braid. They can help you quickly put your hair back together and continue enjoying your beach day.
If you love taking pictures and selfies on the beach, but don't want to show up with messy hair due to the wind and water, having a brush or a comb as a part of your beach bag essentials can be an absolute lifesaver.
A comb can help you gently detangle your hair, making it more manageable and preventing potential damage caused by rough handling. It also allows you to refresh your hairstyle, especially if you've been wearing a hat or have been in the water.
It can give your hair a more polished look and help you maintain a neat appearance. So, simply grab your brush or comb, and right into the beach bag!
Chances are, you will already have your sunglasses on as soon as you start the day, but if you don't, they are an absolute must when it comes to beach bag essentials! They not only add an aesthetic touch to your outfit, but are also extremely important to protect your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Prolonged exposure to UV rays can increase the risk of various eye conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis (sunburn of the cornea).
Quality sunglasses with proper UV protection can block a significant portion of these harmful rays, reducing your risk of these eye issues.
Pack sunscreen, sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat for sun protection, as well as a thermal heat protectant. Bring a towel, extra clothes, and a swimsuit. Include water, snacks, and a reusable water bottle for hydration.
Don't forget a beach mat or chair, a book or entertainment, and a small first aid kit. Keep valuables safe with a waterproof pouch.
Yes, sunscreen is crucial. It protects your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. Use broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher, apply generously, and reapply every 2 hours or after swimming.
