The beauty must-haves for any beach day


Brand new bikini? Check. Wide-brimmed hat? Check. Now that your get-up is sorted, it’s time to pack your beach bag with products that’ll help you beat the heat – and look damn good while you’re at it!.

So what needs to take pride of place in your beach bag this summer? Read on to find out…


There’s nothing better than catching the waft of a fruity or floral fragrance while lazing in the sun. Now, we’re not suggesting that you lug your fave full-size perfume in your bag – instead, opt for a cute and compact roll-on or gel scent for touch-ups throughout the day.

Even if you “never get burnt”, there is no excuse not to slather yourself with high broad-spectrum sunscreen before hitting the beach, and every hour or so while you’re there. For convenience, choose a sunscreen that can be used on both the face and body – who doesn’t love a multi-tasker?

bh product picks: Neutrogena Beach Defence Sunscreen Lotion – Broad Spectrum, SUNSENSE Bronze Shield SPF 30+


Under a veil of sunscreen, your face can look a little, well, dull, so why not make an impact with a pop of colour on your lips? For a pout that stands out, leave the lipstick and shiny lip gloss at home, and apply a tinted lip balm in a pretty pink hue. As an added bonus, a balm will protect your lips from the wind and keep them super nourished. Win!

Planning on taking a dip or two in the ocean? Give your skin a hit of hydration by spritzing on a refreshing face mist. Not only will a face mist cool your skin and leave a lovely lingering fragrance, but it will also soften it and replenish lost moisture. No one wants a dry, flaky and parched complexion!

Skin’s not the only thing that falls victim to sun damage – your hair can cop a bit of a beating when exposed to the sun’s harsh rays. Before leaving the house, smooth a serum with UV protection through your hair, and throw a sun protection spray into your bag to spritz on after swimming.
