Summer is nearly here, and that means that many of my readers might be in the midst of planning a beach holiday. There’s nothing like a good few days spent at the beach, enjoying the surf, the sand and the sun. But you do need to make sure you are properly prepared for this type of getaway. Luckily, I’ve got a few tips that should prove to be very helpful indeed.
Find Your Summer Style
The place to start is finding the right clothes to wear. You can find my own personal style preferences on another section of this blog but for now, let’s think about what you like. You can take some cut off denim shorts and perhaps a crop or too. You might also want to look into buying a new bikini if you’re planning on working on that tan. Or, if you are not beach body ready just yet, you can be a tad more conservative with a tankini.
Make sure you have some light, loose clothes to wear over it for when you dash into town for supplies. Or, if you just want to protect yourself from the sun’s powerful rays.
Remember, the key to great summer style is accessorising. You can start by looking for the perfect pair of shades. While there are plenty of different types to choose from, I’d opt for the vintage cat eyes. These look ultra chic and will compliment any beach outfit beautifully.
Skip The Time Of The Month
Are you planning on going swimming on your beach vacay or do you just want to avoid looking bloated? Either, way you might want to make sure you skip your time of the month. If you’re interested in this idea, you can delay your period with a prescription pill from a doctor. Highly recommended for anyone who feels like the seven gates of hell have opened whenever their period comes calling. After all, the beach is a place for relaxation and freedom, not stress and hormones.
My Life Has A Soundtrack
So should yours and it can. You can turn your beach vacation into a beach musical if you buy some waterproof speakers. Find a nice private spot on the sand, set up the speakers and let your music play. If they’re waterproof, you won’t have to worry about anyone ruining them when they are drying off after a dip.
You definitely need some flip flops for those aching feet. Don’t try to look more stylish by rocking the heels or wedges. A) this is just going to hurt, B) you’re not a supermodel and C) you’ll ruin your shoes with sand and water. Flip flops are far better, and they can still be stylish and cool. You can get them in lots of cute colours that will match any outfit you’ve chosen to wear on the beach.
Wear Sun Tan Lotion
Some people think that the way to get the best tan is to burn and then let the old skin peel away revealing golden brown flesh. While this might indeed be the best way to get the nicest colour, it’s also your best shot at getting cancer. That’s why you should always make sure you’re wearing sun tan lotion when you’re at the beach. Remember, if you’re jumping in and out of the water it’s also going to wash off. As such, you want to make sure that you are reapplying regularly if you’re a keen swimmer. Wondering what lotion to use? Garnier has just received a prize from Which for the best one to buy so you should probably start there. Or you can check out some reviews online.
Forget Lipstick, You Need Lip Balm
What is the point of wearing makeup to the beach? You’d be far better off going au naturale because the sweat will make it drip anyway. Even if it doesn’t, swimming in the water certainly will, and you might come out looking like a drowned panda. You can think about opting for waterproof makeup, but even this won’t withstand a deep dive. Instead, you should just pack some lip balm. This will keep your lips look lush, free from dry skin and it’s really all the makeup you need. Don’t forget, you can get tinted balm to give your lips some extra colour.
Take my advice, and I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time at the beach this summer. Better yet, you’ll look absolutely stunning and definitely catch the eye of a few onlookers. Have fun!
