Top 6 Must-Have Beach Essentials for Summer

1:12:00 PM

We're well on our way to summer, with days filled with icy cold drinks & some fun in the sun.
I thought this would be the perfect post for the occasion!
There are certain essentials when it comes to the beach, and of course the most obvious is sunscreen when you're heading to the beach so I won't list that but apart from that, here are my top essentials for this summer of 2016/2017.

1. Round Beach Towel

Gone are the days of using your regular old rectangular towels. These new designs of a circular shape are much more cute!
They come in various sizes with the usual being 150cm in diameter, with lots of space for you to do your thing.
It's pretty big so it's enough to comfortably fit you, and a friend.. or two.
There are many that you can find online, but these are from Epoch Collective Australia.
They have amazing designs, plus all their round towels come with a mini beach duffel bag for protection and making it super convenient for travelling.
Apart from their designs, the towels are made from 100% cotton velour/terry making it as soft as velvet on one side, and super absorbent on the other.

 The Aquatic Lotus design was inspired by turquoise waters of Maldives as well as the beautiful lotus flower, a symbol of purity in Bhuddism.

If you love nature-inspired designs but prefer green than blue, the Leilani design would be perfect for you. Leilani, means "heavenly flower" in Hawaiian and this design was inspired by the beautiful tropics of Hawaii, filled with palm trees.

Of course, every girl requires a cute and sexy outfit for those unplanned beach trips. With this banded halter bikini, you get a really sexy, sophisticated look from the top while the bottom has cutouts that make it really cute. It comes with a hook and eye back closure and fully adjustable straps.
Beautiful design don't you think? 

And if you're up for something a little more fun, I'd suggest Dana, which is basically the same design as Dallas but in a beautiful wine red colour.

A little bit out of context because not everyone works out on the beach but if you do then this is for you! For everyone else, to go with your new swimsuit (let's be honest, we all get at least one new swimwear every summer!), we've got to hit the gym to workout and get that toned, beach body. 

This set comes with a seamless sports bra (with removable cups) and a pair of leggings. 
The leggings feature a floral print on the side panels, as well as a sexy side criss cross detail.
Designs like these are my favourite because it's so easy to mix and match the top or the bottom with ones I already have.

They've got many other amazing designs as well when it comes to looking fab when you're working out! So if this design isn't to your tastes, then have a look at their other ones.

4. High Waisted Denim Shorts

These will be one of your staples when it comes to summer fashion. Pair them with any top, especially a bikini top and it would look great!
Almost every single shop will have some high-waisted denim shorts in stock so just pop into a store and choose your favourite!

The best part is it's denim, so it will never go out of style and the more worn out it is, the better it looks!
Don't worry, you won't have to spend money if you don't want to! For all you DIY-ers out there, you can even DIY these shorts with an old pair of jeans!
There are tonnes of tutorials out there, just google them.
I've linked my favourite below. It's by Lauren from LaurDIY.

5. Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

The ingredients in this facial spray make it perfect as a little pick me up for our skin, especially during the summer when it feels dehydrated and tight.
It's not that bulky, so you can just chuck it in your bag for when you're heading out.
It can also be used to set make-up or even sprayed on dry hair for a little moisture.
This product is amazing, I use it every single day.  I like to spritz my face every few hours when I feel the need to freshen up.

6. Aloe Vera Gel

You won't be needing this at the beach, however you'll definitely need this when you get back home.
I decided to add this because this is my holy grail when it comes to sunburns and you will 100% thank me for this.
Aloe vera has a very cooling feeling when applied so it is amazing when it comes to sunburns (which, unfortunately, is a given when it comes to summer). 
Aloe vera is one of my absolute favourite ingredients because it is extremely beneficial in so many ways.
Apart from relieving sunburns, it's also great for moisturising the skin without leaving it oily. 
My current favourite that I've been using for more than a year is the Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel.
If you'd like to read my review on it as well as more info on aloe vera, please click here!

However, you don't necessarily have to get the exact same one. You can use any brand but just make sure it's at least 90% aloe vera gel and not some other ingredient. Another alternative is that you could even cut the aloe vera plant if you have one, and apply it directly on your skin. Of course, using the actual plant would be better because you know it's completely natural.

And that's all for my top essentials for the beach this summer!
Have fun everyone!
And always remember to drink some water to avoid dehydration!
