Best Beauty Supplies for your Beach Bag


Happy Fourth of July! Summer is in full swing and you might be headed to the beach or pool for some summer fun. Thanks to my friends at Aveeno I am going to share with you some tips and beauty supplies you should consider to pack in your pool/ beach bag.

Close to Home would like to share our favorite Aveeno beauty supplies and packing tips we wont leave home without!

  • Every good beach bag needs to have a pocket for our cell phone. Might be important to check the weather radar for undesirable weather!
  • A good pair of sunglasses- Not just for the adults but sunglasses for kids are super important.
  • A Hat, while visors are nice full brimmed hats do a better job protecting you 
  • Make up wipes-forgot to take off your makeup b/f you left
  • Beer koozies, who wants warm beer
  • Water bottles to stay hydrated especially if you are using your beer “koozies”
  • SPF lip gloss. Another place people forget to cover up in the sun!
  • Extra rubberbands/clips for your hair, pull it up when you get hot.
  • Baby Powder to take off that sand on legs etc

Also to kick off the summer, following are a few sun tips from board certified dermatologist and the director of her own practice, Image Dermatology, Dr. Jeanine Downie. 

1. Ears, posterior neck, hands and the tops of feet are the most overlooked places for sun protection.
2. Use a hypoallergenic, non-comedegenic sunscreen, like AVEENO® Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30, underneath your eyes consistently and do not rub your eyes. This alone with decrease dark circles.
3. Due to the increase in  more scalp skin cancers, many of which can be avoided. Protect your scalp from the sun by applying a spray sunscreen to your hair, on your part, like AVEENO® HYDROSPORT® Wet Skin Spray Sunscreen SPF 30.

  1. We don’t go anywhere without sunblock and this year, I discovered the stuff to roll on under the eyes – my poor girl got terrible owl eyes our 1st day of vacation!

  2. I love Aveeno’s products, especially the facial wipes…very handy to take to the beach!

  3. I no longer go to the beach or pool—back when I did unfortunately they did not know about shielding your body from the sun as much–Water is a definite must have–and if you are like me and hate hats–that spray on for the hair, scalp is a must have. By the way-I have been known to get a sunburn even when driving–so I suggest you make sure your face and arms are covered whether at the beach or not.
