1. Setting Spray
If you want to look your best at the beach, you’re probably not keen on leaving out make-up altogether so to avoid ruining your face due to the heat and humidity, try a setting spray. This amazing product works just like hairspray, but for your face! It’s easy to use as all you need to do is apply it after your usual make up routine to keep everything in place. Wait a few minutes for it to dry and you’ll be ready to hit the beach!
2. Waterproof Mascara
When dealing with water and humidity, another essential item is a good quality waterproof mascara. It’s super easy to use, just apply it like any other mascara. For even more luscious lashes, you can use a lash curler too. If you’re worried about how to remove it later, all you need to do is use plenty of eye make up remover and leave your eyes covered with cotton pads for slightly longer than usual.
3. Heat Protection Spray
Let’s face it, if our hair doesn’t look great, it’s hard to feel great in any situation and the beach is not always the most hair-friendly place! Luckily, you can keep your locks under control with various hair products and one of the best types for long summer days and nights is a conditioning heat protection spray to keep frizz at bay and keep your hair looking healthy and shiny. Just a few sprays on washed hair when it’s still wet or damp will keep you covered and after a dip in the sea you can reapply it so you can continue to look fantastic!
It goes without saying that sunscreen is a must but choosing one that you adore makes all the difference. There are many different kinds of oils and creams available with sumptuous coconut scents being a top pick. Whatever type you decide to go for, make sure you stay protected by reapplying it every 2 hours. You can also balance your need for vitamin D while respecting the health and safety guidelines and remember to use an SPF of at least 30.

5. Lip Balm
Don’t forget to think about your lips! Hot temperatures mean they also need protection. Of course, you want to be ready for anything night or day and normal lipstick probably won’t handle the heat so well. The best solution is to choose a balm or tint that contains SPF, in a shade that you love to give you that little bit of added confidence on holiday. Keep it close to hand so can you reapply throughout the day.
One last tip…
Let yourself enter into relaxation mode completely by rounding up all your essential items in just one place. If you fill your favourite make-up bag with the best cosmetics for a beach holiday you’ll be able to chill out and enjoy your precious vacation time while looking and feeling your best!
