Top 5 Beach Must Haves for 2021!

Be sure to bring these 5 beach must haves now that beach season is in full swing! We can all take a collective exhale. If you’re anything like us, you’re gleefully planning your days in the waves, yet fretting about how—and what—to pack for you and your family. (Needless to say, 2020 kept us out of practice.)

Thankfully, we’ve done the work for you and rounded up a list of acne safe beach beauty bag must-haves for a much-deserved summer of celebrating life in the sunshine. For extra preparedness, check out this article on safety tips for beach days.

Do you want clear skin?

#1 Sunscreen

The number one bit of advice you’ll always hear us give is: DON’T forget the sunscreen!

One of our all time favorites, Acne-Safe and reef-safe, SolRX WATERBLOCK® SPF 50 Zinc Sunscreen is the trusted choice of athletes and lifeguards for protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Originally designed for triathletes, swimmers and surfers, our SPF 50 Dry Zinc Sunscreen offers broad-spectrum protection and it will not burn your eyes even if you sweat.

Differing from normal sports sunscreens, SolRX’s SPF 50 Zinc Oxide Sunscreen blocks the sun’s harmful rays, instead of reflecting them. Regular sport sunscreens absorb into the skin in order to start working. Zinc Sunscreen physically blocks the sun by sitting directly on your skin, which is why most labels say to apply the zinc oxide sunscreen about 20 minutes before entering the sun.

Our SPF 50 sunscreen with Zinc Oxide is oil-free and was engineered especially for athletes to go on clear with a matte finish so athletes can focus on play and exercise, instead of how pale they look.

#2 Beach Snacks (that won’t break you out)

Nobody goes to the beach without something to munch on, especially if it’s an all day event. which is why second on our list of beach must haves are acne friendly beach snacks! Aim for frozen fruit and spoil-proof veggies that’ll quench your thirst, fill you up, and also act as a refreshing treat. I love creating the ‘perfect pair,’ like apple with nut butter or whole grain crackers with guacamole! Having healthy beach snacks that are filling, portable, and delicious – from sweet to savory will hit the spot every time.

Check out these snack favorite ideas:

  • Fruit skewers

Skewers lined with refreshing fruits like berries, grapes, and melon cubes are so simple to put together for beach days. Not only do they taste amazing, but you’ll also be getting tons of vitamins, minerals, and filling fiber with every bite.

  • Kale chips

Packed with vitamins A, C, and K, this slightly bitter green turns into an irresistible “chip” when tossed with olive oil and baked in the oven. And if you like a little kick, add a dash of paprika. Best of all? They’ll never get soggy.

  • Crackers with guacamole and tomatoes

Opt for whole grain crackers for some extra fiber. Prep your guacamole and slice some tomatoes to pack away in a container. Then, simply stack your fixings or dip and enjoy for the easiest snack that actually tames your hunger midday.

#3 Water Bottle Attachment — for dogs

Don’t forget about your four legged friend when pulling together your beach must haves. If your weekend beach partner is four-legged, then pack with that fur-baby in mind! We love a portable pet water bottle for keeping pups hydrated in the hot summer sun. You won’t regret snagging one for your pet & they will love you for it too!

#4 Beach Blanket — bag

We know your linen closet is overflowing with faded beach towels. Who doesn’t have a Disney-themed pile from 1995? Give yourself an upgrade with a multiple use outdoor beach blanket. This one is especially fun because it easily folds into a lightweight, compact zippered tote with pocket and shoulder carrying strap for easy transport! A blanket & a bag all in one.

#5 And last but definitely not least… Hydrate!

Newly hot temps, humidity, direct sunlight and salt water are a recipe for dehydration.

BEWARE! A sunburn draws water out of the skin, leaving it dehydrated and more vulnerable to damage. Replace those fluids to kickstart your skin’s repair process, so drink plenty of water.  Nuun sport tablets amp your water intake thanks to a quick hit of electrolytes and minerals. They come in a plethora of fruity flavors—some with caffeine, too—and are vegan, gluten-free, kosher and non-GMO. AND best of all, they won’t break you out like most sport tablets that contain too much B12.

A Final Note

If you are treating with us for acne, you are using some highly active products, which make your skin much more susceptible to burning. Applying sunscreen each day is imperative to the health and clearing of your skin. If you ever have questions about skincare routines for summer, book an appointment with us today & we will be happy to get you started.

Whether you’re planning to have some epic seaside gatherings that’ll take you from a beach day to a beach night (in which case, you better pack a Bluetooth speaker) or you simply want to make those hot summer days a little more comfortable, there are plenty of items out there to level up your summer in the sun. And once you start using these, you’ll wonder where they were all along.

Cheers to clear!
