Lake days and beach vacays are just around the corner, which means it is time to stock up on beach bag essentials. Get you and your skin ready for fun in the sun with must-have products that are perfect for anyone who enjoys lounging by the pool or playing in the waves. Of course, SPF and a good hair brush are always on the list, but here are some beauty essentials that we here at Aloette just can’t leave the beach house without:
Vitamin C Serum
No beach bag is complete without a Vitamin C serum. Of course, SPF is the go-to for sun protection, but Vitamin C is another ingredient that can help protect the skin and improve the look of dark spots or imperfections. This is because Vitamin C is high in antioxidants—a naturally occurring compound that helps protect the skin from environmental stressors while reducing the look of an uneven skin tone. So, if you are headed to the beach, try applying a Vitamin C serum to the face, neck and chest for added protection before you lather up in your favorite sunscreen.
Try: C the Light | Powered by a blend of citrus fruits that are rich in Vitamin C, this daily serum helps brighten the look of skin while helping to reduce the look of dark spots, uneven skin tone and fine lines.
Hydrating Body Mist
Salty air might look great on your hair but it is a definite no-go for your skin. Combine it with the bright sun, ocean water and sand and your complexion will basically beg for a dose of hydration. So, give your skin the love it needs and carry on with your beach vacay using a spritz of hydrating body mist. This multi-tasking product is the perfect beach bag essential as it helps restore the skin with antioxidants while misting the complexion in a lightweight veil of hydration.

Including a body wash, body lotion and hydrating body mist, you can boost hydration and refresh the look of skin with clean ingredients. Pack the body mist away in your beach bag, then wash away the salty air and moisturize the skin with the body wash and lotion.
Protective Lip Balm
Don’t forget your lips! While you’re busy coating your skin in SPF and Vitamin C, it can be easy to forget this one important area of the face. In fact, the lips are fair more delicate than the skin, which means they are at risk for dryness and flaking—especially when sitting in the hot summer sun. Steer clear of dry, chapped lips by ensuring to pack a hydrating and protective lip balm in your beach bag. Look for moisturizing ingredients, like Shea Butter, and antioxidant-rich ingredients, like fruit extracts, to help protect the lips from environmental stressors while lounging on the sand.

Aloe Vera Gel
If there was ever a seaside product praised as much as SPF, it’s Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is rumored to have a lot of “miracle” properties, but we personally love it for it’s ability to help reduce the look of redness and improve the look of an uneven skin tone. It is also high in antioxidants to help protect the skin from potential age-accelerating environmental stressors (i.e. the sun), making it an excellent pool day or beach day essential. You can apply it at the beach for extra hydration or apply it after your shower to help soothe the skin.
