Have you hit the beach yet? I did a few weeks ago and definitely noticed a few things I should have attended to before strolling onto the sand. Pale, stubbly and not properly moisturized, that first day in Amagansett was brutal! The first thing I did when I came back indoors was perform some pruning with my Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle®. It is a dual ended tool that gets under my arms and legs on one end and has a waterproof bikini trimmer on the other.
I am headed to Miami Fashion Week Swim in about 2 weeks and will be assaulted by the parade of perfectly tanned and toned, smooth bodies parading down the Raleigh Hotel runways. The Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle® is perfectly portable and lasts for quite a while on its little AAA battery.
My paleness? Well, I burn far more quickly than I darken. I opt for a slow bake with sunscreen that has some shimmer to it that distracts from the milky pallor of my skin. Bright colors and patterns in my swimwear also help.
Don’t forget to hydrate! Coconut water is my staple during the summer. Also, I love my Hydro Coach water bottle which actually monitors whether or not I am taking in enough liquids.
One of the best vacation gifts my Hubby ever gave me was a crushable sun hat that I can toss into any suitcase and bag. Make sure it is cute and coordinates well with your outfits!
Don’t forget a cooling aloe lotion or gel for the end of your beach day. I am always more sun-weary than I expected to be. You need something to soothe (your exterior at least). If you are in a tropical climate, you might be lucky enough to pick aloe right off the grounds. Just an FYI though, the clear jelly like aloe from the plant quickly turns a crusty, dark red brown when it dries. This is something I learned the hard way when I thought my resort bathroom had suddenly turned into a crime scene…
Did I miss anything? What is YOUR must-have beach tool?
