5 Simple Products to Pack for Every Beach Vacation

Jennifer Flodin Packing Lists & Tips Leave a Comment

Beach vacations are popular for obvious reasons. The sun, salt water, and palm trees have a way of making you relax.

No matter how relaxing, the sun and saltwater can take a toll on your hair and skin! But have no fear!

I have compiled a list of super awesome products to help you have the an incredible time on your next tropical vacation!

(Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase through one of the affiliate links, I do receive compensation at no cost to you. Please understand that I only recommend products and services that I love and trust!)

1. Suncare Protective Hair Veil by Aveda

Do you color your hair? If so, you need this product!

It helps protect your salon color from fading due to prolonged exposure to the sun.

Even if you don't color you hair, this product will still help protect the integrity of your hair from sun's harsh rays!

2. Totally Beachin' Shampoo and Conditioner by Bead Head (TIGI)

Seriously, this product saves my hair during every beach vacation!

The Florida sun and salt water takes the life right out of my hair. It becomes brittle and dry--eww!

But, this product revitalizes it every time!

It makes my hair soft and manageable beach day after beach day.

3. Shine Brush by Wet Brush

This is my favorite brush ever!

They're all the rage right now, but if you don't have one yet, you're crazy!

It gently detangles my hair without damaging it. After a day of sea breezes, salt water, and sweat, my hair is crazy tangled, so this is a must-bring on every one of my beach vacations!

4.  Waterproof Case by Ace Teah

I bought these waterproof cases off amazon, and they worked perfectly. (Remember to always test them before each use!)

Although I didn't end up using these cases to hold my phone, I did use them to hold credit cards and IDs while at the beach in Miami.

I wanted keep my money with me even while I was swimming since the beach is so crowded.

I made to sure to enclose the cards in a small pouch that wasn't clear and then put that pouch inside the waterproof case. Obviously, I didn't want anyone to know exactly what I was carrying, even though they probably could have guessed.

I would definitely recommend this product for your beach vacation!

5. Swim Shirt!

Okay, I know that wearing a swim shirt isn't exactly sexy.

I know you'd rather wear your bikini.

However, please consider wearing one if you burn easily!

Frankly, I burn after about 10-20 minutes when I'm outside in Florida during the summer. Even with sunscreen, I burn really quickly.

So, after my most recent trip to Miami and Key West, I have realized that a swim shirt is something that I must purchase.

Sure, I can relax in the shade in my bikini, but if I plan on spending hours in the sun, I really need to wear a swim shirt.

Plus, if I can avoid getting burned on day 1 of my vacations, I will be able to enjoy the rest of the trip!

I did some research, and I found a few of my favorite swim shirts for under $30 on Amazon! To check them out, click the links below!
