Beach Bound

TGIF kittens! This weekend the boyfriend and I are heading to the beach for a few days and I couldn’t be more excited. I cannot wait to smell the salt on the breeze, walk and shop on the boardwalk, be a permanent fixture treading in the Atlantic looking for dolphins and sharks to swim with, and gorge myself silly on king crab legs. If I happen to eat ice cream sundaes every night, well, so be it. As I pack {overpack} for the beach I thought I’d share with you all what I’m taking in my beach bag. I’m using one of my favorite vintage straw totes; you can find one similar here.

Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Moisturizer Lotion with SPF 30- This product makes it easy to stay protected from the sun 24/7/365. This is the lazy way to get your hydration and sun protection all in one. Slather this on immediately after your shower and you’ve already done two great things for your skin, all before brushing your teeth. Go you!

Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes- I’m currently battling hormonal breakouts {hot damn I love being a woman sometimes!} and these are a godsend. I use these salicylic acid infused wipes after I work out or toss them in the beach bag to prevent perspiration related breakouts. They’re not limited to just your face, use them anywhere you perspire to prevent congestion and irritation.

Forever 21 Aviators- While I adore my beloved Ray Ban aviators, they will be waiting for me safe and sound back at the hotel. Not one to leave my peepers unprotected, I will be sporting this inexpensive, yet stylish, pair while I swim and attempt to solve at least ONE Soduku puzzle in my lifetime {who am I kidding? Back issues of Allure all the way!}

Neutrogena Pure and Free Baby Sunblock Stick SPF 60- I’m all about babying my sensitive skin with extra protection and this touch up stick is an overachiever. Use it on your lips, nose, ears, anywhere you may neglect or forget to reapply with sunscreen. I plan on using it on all of the above and on my part. Call me overcautious but once you’ve had a burn there, you don’t forget it!

Josie Maran Bare Naked Wipes- I adore these wipes and they are most definitely going into the beach bag. I love the sand and surf but I don’t enjoying eating the sand while I indulge in a popsicle on the beach. These fragrance-free steeped in cucumber, aloe vera, and argan oil wipes are perfect for all my repeat sunscreen applications.

EO Hand Sanitizer Organic Lemon- I love this all natural hand sanitizer. Not only does it somehow manage to be hydrating, but it’s a wonderful alternative to traditional chemical laden hand sanitizers. It kills the germs without killing my hands and I’m a sucker for the fresh lemon scent.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock SPF 45- A tried and true favorite. This broad-spectrum sunscreen is not only waterproof but it won’t break down easily in the sun. The one touch continuous spray formula could not be easier to use, it’s perfect for reapplications. I love the clean, lightweight feel and the fresh scent.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
