Traditional beach holidays are always a great way to relax and spend quality time with family during the summer holidays- and this year is no exception. Wondering how to prepare for your best beach vacation yet? With a little extra preparation, you will be ready to make lot of memories!
Pack the right swimsuits
The right swimsuit can make all the difference for your beach holiday. The most important thing is you feel comfortable and confident in your swimsuits! There are so many styles to choose from, from two-piece options to one pieces (with or without cutouts). Popular this year include those with bright colors and fun patterns, but you can also opt for those neutrals that are classic and will last you years to come.
Choose the right bag and foot wear
A practical bag is a must for a beach vacation, not only for going to the beach but also for exploring the town and going out. Brown leather crossbody bags, such as those available from Mirta for example, are a great option as they are chic and super versatile! You can take them anywhere while still being fashionable. There are also many beach totes, including packable ones, that you can take out for those specific times you’ll be only at the beach.
Prepare your body
Before spending time at the beach, take the time to prep and support your skin! Dedicate some time to prepping the skin, exfoliating, and if you choose to, shaving. This will leave your skin feeling fresh and soft for your time at the beach. After your day at the beach and the water, remember to clean your skin well and apply a nourishing moisturizer to help soothe and replenish your skin with essential moisture.
Don’t forget sun protection
Sun protection is essential for spending time at the beach! Luckily, there are many options to make sure you are protecting your skin. For example, there is dedicated lip, face and body sunscreen that you want to make sure you are applying accordingly. You can also opt for sun hats to protect your skin and hair, bandanas for hair protection, and protective clothing for the rest of your body. Remember to reapply your skin throughout the day and especially after spending any time in the water!
Bring beach appropriate activities
While relaxing on the beach is always a great go-to, it is always a good idea to bring beach appropriate activities as well! This can be from a range of your interests. For example, you can bring games, books, magazines, and a portable speaker for your preferred beach entertainment. Great games to bring are a card so you’re ready for any card games, a ball for football or soccer, a frisbee, and perhaps paddles and a ball for a little beach paddleball.
While you’re getting set up for your beach days, it is recommended you buy covers for your electronics to protect them against salt water, sand and the beach elements. Protecting your cell phones from elements with quality cases. That way with these steps and your electronics protected, you are set for your time at the beach!
