Top 10 Beauty Items in My Beach Bag.

My beach bag is stuffed. Not only do I fill it with a big hat, flip flops, sunglasses, a towel, and stack of great magazines, I fill it with some beauty products too. I like to keep cool and comfortable at the beach and depend on a variety of beauties to get me through. Take a look at the top 10 beauty items that I carry in my beach bag.

Beach Bag Beauty Items:  Everything you need to stay beautiful at the beach.

1. Sunscreen - Sunscreen is a must. My favorite is L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion. Remember to apply 30 minutes before heading out into the sun and reapply every few hour or after going in the water.

2. Self-Tanner - Yes! I bring self-tanner to the beach. It is the only way to get a safe tan and I want to look like I went to the beach before I head home. I usually just apply it to my legs and face before I head home. I bring a mitt for applying it to my legs and with a makeup sponge on my face.

3. Bronzer - Like I mentioned above, I want to look the part at the beach. I sweep it on over my sunscreen and reapply if I take a dip in the water.

4. Moisturizer with SPF - I use this on my face first thing in the morning, obviously, but I  reapply as needed. I do have my favorites and you'll have to check back later this week to see my list.

5. Body Lotion - Susncreen, sun and salt can dry out the skin. I like to keep one ion hand, just in case

6. Aloe - No matter how careful you are, you can wind up getting burned. I spent some time at the beach during the recent heat wave and stayed in the water the entire time. Even with sunscreen, I got a little burn. Aloe is the best thing to soothe a burn. I pick up a generic brand from CVS and it does the trick to soothe my skin each and every time.

7. Hydrating Face Spray - When I am feeling extra parched, I spritz on a bit of Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray to quench my skin.

8. Beachy Wave Hair Spray - Beachy waves don't happy naturally, they need help. As my hair starts to unwind in the wind. I spray on some L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Beach Spray or Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and scrunch.

9. Lip Balm with SPF - Lips are often neglected in the sun, and I apply a lip balm with sunscreen multiple times at the beach. I like Sun Bum Lip Balm that has an SPF30. My favorite flavor? Coconut!

10. Waterproof Mascara - I do; I wear mascara to the beach and sometimes need to reapply, especially if I'm heading to my favorite beach restaurant after. My latest fave is COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara in the water resistant version.

Genius! I never thought of bringing self tanner to the beach. That's a brilliant idea!
Of course sunscreen. I bring an empty spray bottle and fill it up with cold water to spritz myself. It keeps me cool and washes sand of me before I put on more sunscreen.
Your list hit all the basic necessities for day at the beach. I've never tried aloe but it will be in my bag this time.
Super cute bag and tips. Never thought of self tanner or a specific lip block which is important.
Aloe is a great item to have. I should have some in the bag for when I'm with my little grandson. I keep his sunscreen with me in my purse so I'll add this too.
I totally forgot to mention bronzer! DOH! And of course a towel and flip-flops. And Aloe is a GREAT idea!
This covers it all and I have to say I'm impressed. I have the sunscreen, lip balm with sunscreen and aloe in mine, but that's it. I like the beach hair spray idea and self tanner should be obvious but it's not.
I am going to have to try the L'Oreal beach spray!
I never thought about a hydrating spray! Good choices!
we always bring baby powder. it helps get sticky sand off your feet when you're ready to go home. also great to clean off toddlers who love to plop down in that sand. just dust 'em off!
A hydrating face spray is a great idea!
You are so right about people neglecting the lips! Love that you bring self-tanner with you :)
I actually bought the L'Oreal Sublime because of you! It now has a permanent home in my beach bag.
Thanks for all the great comments ladies! I'm glad you found the list helpful. Here are to endless, beautiful summer beach days!
