Please No More Wrinkles! Top 5 Beach Essentials

There’s something magical about days at the beach when you’re a kid — digging in the sand, saltwater in your hair, no worries about how the sun is aging your skin… those were the days. Over spring break or definitely the summer, so many of us head to the beach to give our kids that special experience we still have memories of from our childhood. Of course, now more than ever before, sun protection (and wrinkle prevention!) is top of mind. Before you hit the sand, here are our fashion and beauty beach essentials you should check out, stat!

1 | Stylish Rashguard. So many skin-saving swim tops to choose from these days! And it pays to have several in rotation. Here are a few of our latest favs that you can layer with a one-piece or pair with a bikini bottom.

2 | Chic Hat. This Eric Javits fedora has built-in UPF 50+ sun protection which our skin loves and appreciates. We also found a super affordable hat option for only $18 and another cute one for just $35.

3 | Healthy Sunscreen. A sunscreen that really protects is a must-have for the beach-bound and when we can buy organic products that work — even better! We know these paraben-free, water-resistant products do the job since we’ve tested them time and time again. Plus, they smell delish.

4 | Super Hair Shield. We spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars each year on cuts, blowouts, color, highlights and products to keep our hair in tip-top condition. Don’t let the sun dry out your mane and fade your color. These products will help protect your investment.

5 | Cool Cover-up. We are big fans of cover-ups that do double-duty — in other words, pull over your suit for the beach to shield your skin from too much sun, then swap your flip-flops for wedges and head out to dinner.
