Though officially summer doesn’t arrive for another month, if you’re like us, you’re not waiting for the change of seasons to have your day at the beach or pool. Check out our handy checklist of essentials so you can make the most of your summer days. 


While no sunscreen can block 100% of the sun’s UVB rays, an SPF of at least 30 can block 97% of the sun’s UVB rays. Choose broad-spectrum sunscreens that offer protection from UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays) and be sure to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. 

Lip Balm 

Don’t forget about your lips! Sunscreen should be applied every day to all skin not covered by clothing when going outside, and this includes your lips. Choose a lip balm or lipstick with an SPF of 30 or higher. 


Your skin isn’t the only thing that needs protection from the sun. Wearing sunglasses and a hat is the simplest and safest way to protect your eyes from UV rays.

Summer Hat

Listening to the waves crash, splashing around in the water, and collecting seashells along the shore are part of what makes a beach day the best day! To protect yourself from the sun’s damaging rays that reflect off the water and sand, choose a broad hat with a dark brim. 

Baby Powder

Headed to the beach? Don’t forget the baby powder! Hear us out… it’s one of those traveling gems, or in this case, the ultimate beach hack we wished we knew sooner since it is one of the best ways to remove sand.  And for everything we love about sand, it’s the one thing we don’t want to take home with us! Use it on dry skin to remove the sand still on you, like between your toes. 

After Sun Lotion

Whether you missed a spot while applying your sunscreen or forgot to reapply, having a hydrating moisturizer that you can use on your face and body will help soothe your skin. Look for lotions with coconut oil and aloe that are free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, and SLS.
