Beach-appropriate beauty accessories are a must if you’re spending most of your day lazing about on the sand. And, trust me, there’s a whole lot more you can do than simple sunscreen. Your body deserves a lot more than that.
But we’ve all been there, we’ve all found that every-day beauty products and the beach just don’t mix very well. So, keep your skin hydrated and safe from the effects of the sun with these precious beauty items, while getting your best tan on.

#2 Bel Essence Anti Wrinkle Cream
Bel Essence creates its products based on a simple principle – nutrition for the skin. Plant oils such as Argan, Hemp, Rice Bran, Avocado and others are rich in the vitamins, omega 3s, fatty acids and other nutrients important for healthy skin and a healthy body. These oils have been known for centuries for their healing and restoring properties, giving your skin what it needs to regenerate and rejuvenate itself to its best. Sun, sand and heat dry out and damage skin. Bel Essence deeply moisturizes, restoring hydration, and the nutrients in the oils help to reverse sun damage.
Bel Essence combines plant oils, all researched for their nutritional properties and combined to deliver the best nutrition to skin and hair, and give our bodies topical nutrition. The products are built from these oils, not a base of filler ingredients with oils sprinkled in. This is why the products enjoy 4+ star reviews – they are natural and organic, cruelty free certified, made in the US, paraben and sulfate free, and very effective in repairing and rejuvenating skin.

Populum’s Cold Therapy Hemp Rub is perfect for after a day on the beach. Not only does it have Aloe and Anrica, to soothe skin, but is also has CBD, to relax you after a long day in the sun.

Vitamin-rich and ultra moisturizing, this face oil helps rejuvenate and protect skin, keeping you glowing and vibrant with or without makeup.
#6 The Matte & Smooth Primer
Your makeup won’t budge with this multi-tasking primer. Made with apricot kernel oil and Vitamin E, this primer helps soothe and heal damaged skin while acting as a natural barrier from the sun — perfect for being out and about in the heat! Apply it after your moisturizer for smooth and radiant skin all summer long.
#7 Custom Drops
We might wait all year for that summer glow, but switching back and forth between different foundation shades can be expensive. Instead of buying new makeup for every season, add 3INA’s Custom Drops to create your perfect color blend. Straying away from your usual full-coverage foundation? Add a few drops to your moisturizer or sunscreen to create a slight tint!
#8 Makeup Cream Eyeshadow
With a handful of bright and playful colors, these cream eyeshadows just scream summer! The intense pigments and fast-drying formula give any eye look a quick and beautiful pick-me-up. Plus, long-lasting and waterproof is an understatement with these shadows — put them to the test and they’ll last all day (and night)!

Keep your eyes glazed and glossy with the 3INA Eye Gloss. Available in four different shades, the pen applicator is easy to apply and perfect for an on-the-go look. A quick swipe will last all day and keep your lids looking dewy and hydrated!
#10 VOLO Hero Hair Towel
Using a microfiber hair towel to dry your hair, such as VOLO Beauty’s VOLO Hero, helps decrease dry time by 50% and is gentler on your strands versus a normal bath or beach towel. The VOLO Hero is made with microfiber that is extremely absorbent and gentle, helping remove excess water while eliminating damage.
#11 Maple Holistics Therapeutic Lip Balm with SPF
While you lather on the sunscreen to your body and face at the beach, your lips tend to get a backseat treatment. They deserve as much protection as the rest of your body and Maple Holistics agrees. This set of lip balms is infused with naturally-derived, hydrating ingredients like vitamin E and coconut oil to drench your lips with moisture, as well as protect your lips with SPF 15. We all know what it’s like to attempt to keep your belongings safely on hand at the beach, but with four lip balms you’ll always have one on hand!

#17 Recova Tinted Arnica Cream
Recova’s Tinted Arnica Cream is a first-of-its-kind, all-natural cream developed to conceal bruising while healing. As a vascular physician, I developed Recova cream for patients after varicose vein treatments, who wanted to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation. Then, patients in our clinic, which is located in Southern California, started using it to diminish bruising so they could show their legs on the beach. That led us to developing the worlds’ first Tinted Arnica Cream, which has 9 natural healing ingredients in a tinted color, to conceal bruising while promoting healing.
#18 Anastasia Beverly Hills
The Anastasia Brow Wiz does not come off in salt water or sand. I used it on my recent trip to the beach in South Padre Island, TX. I have also used this brow pencil every day for years! I haven’t found a better brow pencil. It never smudges and lasts me all day. I have sparse brows so this product makes me feel more attractive when I use it.
