Sunscreen
It’s an obvious one, but so important! Not only necessary for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. It also stops you from turning a bright red shade of burnt that will seriously ruin your look. Make sure you pick a high enough factor and apply 30 minutes before going into the sun. Remember to reapply after going in the water or every two hours for maximum protection. If you do end up burning, have an aftersun at the ready to soothe your skin.

Swimwear
You may have spent months working out to sculpt your beach body, or enjoyed one too many takeaways, but either way it’s time to put on your swimsuit! But instead of spending your day using a cover-up to hide your old, unflattering swimsuit, you should invest in something new. With so many styles designed to flatter your body, whatever shape you are, there is something out there to make you feel confident.

Hat
When the weather gets hotter, and the sun is beating down, it’s important to stay protected. A hat is perfect for keeping your head cool and avoiding burning or getting heat stroke. Depending on the look you want to go for, you can choose anything from an oversized, floppy hat to a cowgirl style straw hat. It also means that, after a day spent in the sea, you have something to cover up those ‘beachy waves’. No matter how good the celebrities look, the sea-salt, sun, and heat often leaves hair looking dry and damaged. Not so glamorous!

Beach Towel
Whether you’re relaxing on a sunlounger or just laying on the sand, you can’t forget a beach towel. Essential for keeping your stuff sand-free (mostly) and drying off after a refreshing swim. There are so many styles you’re bound to find one you love. But if you want your beach towel to do more you can even find towels with hidden compartments for safely storing your valuables. With waterproof, zip-up pockets and even the option of a built-in pillow, comfort on the beach just got a lot easier.

Beach Bag
Of course, you’re going to need something to carry all your other essentials in, and a beach bag is the perfect accessory. Something with compartments is handy to separate everything and make it easy to find what you’re looking for. If you don’t have a towel with storage, finding a bag with a secret zip is great for storing your money, phone, and any other valuables. If you’re planning on making a day of it, make sure you have everything you need. So take plenty of water, snacks and hand sanitizer so you can eat them, maybe a book and your music player, and don’t forget your sunscreen.

So now you’re all set for a day at the beach! Let me know in the comments what your beach essentials are.
