If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I spent two amazing weeks in Cancun and Mexico. It was such a fantastic getaway from London, and Cancun is a paradise which I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to. During my days at the beach, pool or sightseeing I always had with me my bag with all the beach essentials. Keep on reading to find it out more!
Facial Cleansing Wipes
Face wipes are a must have at the beach and at the pool and I always keep them handy whenever I need to refresh my face. You can also use it on the body or to clean your hands. There are 60 in a pack and the packaging is sealed so they didn’t dry out throughout my holiday. I got these at TK Maxx for £3.99.
Palmers Eventone Suncare SPF50
I always use SPF50 as I have a vary fair skin, and especially at the beginning of your holiday it is important that your skin gets used to being exposed for so long to the sun rays. This sunscreen is wonderful as it protects your skin even in the water as it is waterproof. In addition it does smell amazing and it is moisturising. I liked it as it didn’t leave white residue and it was absorbed into my skin fairly quickly. Available from Superdrug for £9.99.
Macadamia Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil
What we often forget about when going to the beach is our hair which can get easily damaged by the sea salt, wind and sun rays. The Macadamia Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil helps to protect the hair, and colour, nourishes it and gives it a stunning glow. It consists of all the essential ingredients to hydrate and protect the hair such as Macadamia Oil, Argan oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower Seed Extract and UV absorbers.
I really love the fragrance of this product which is coconut cream and it stays on the hair throughout the day. For best results spray evenly on the hair every two hours and your hair will look as stunning as your tanned skin when you come back from holiday! Available from Feelunique, for £21.
Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF60
This is a spray sunscreen which I use on my hair to protect the scalp from burning which happened to me too many times. It works amazingly as it is in a pressured container and doesn’t get exposed to sun rays. I got this in the USA so you might be able to get it on Amazon!
No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Facial Suncare SPF50+
I try to keep my makeup minimal when I am at the beach to let my skin rest and recover. This BB Cream evens out the skin tone and cover any imperfection so that you don’t feel completely make-up free. It has an SPF 50 so you can use it instead of your sunscreen and it does a great job. During the two weeks in Mexico, my skin was protected and it didn’t burn once. I will continue using it in London even though the sun is not as strong here, but it is crucial to protect your face to minimise the sun damage. Available from Boots, for £15.
Got2b Oil-licious Styling Oil
As mentioned in my festival essentials, this is perfect for smoothing down the hair and taming the frizz. I always used it after leaving the pool or the sea and when my hair was drying to give additional shine and hydration. Available from Superdrug, for £3.
Cuticara Original Hand Gel
I always take with me an antibacterial hand gel to the beach or to the pool just to keep my hands clean and use it whenever I need. I love the one from Cuticara, as it has a lovely cucumber smell. Available from Superdrug, for £1.
Chapstick Flava Craze Watermelon and Quickies Deodorant Wipes
I got these from the festival pack from chemist.co.uk for £7.99. The chopstick is perfect for the beach as it has an SPF15 and hydrates the lips throughout the day. I cannot even say how useful were the quickies deodorant wipes! They are super easy to use and take so little space that I took them with me everywhere and used them whenever I needed. Super useful for the beach.
