Seashells on Sandy Beach

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!

(Please note that I recommend these products because I believe in them! I only receive compensation for advertising if you make a purchase through the Amazon link. Please understand that I have tested out products 1-4 and have only done research on the links under product 5.)

1. Aveda – Suncare Protective Hair Veil

If have recently colored you hair, you will definitely want 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 might still be perfect for you because it also helps protect the integrity of your hair from sun’s harsh rays!

2. Bead Head by TIGI – Totally Beachin’ Shampoo and Conditioner

Seriously, this product saved my hair during my most recent beach vacation! The south Florida sun and salt water took the life right out of my hair, but this product revitalized it! It made my hair soft and manageable beach day after beach day.

3. The Wet Brush – Shine Brush

This is my favorite brush ever! 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 was a must-bring on my last vacation!

4. Ace Teah – Waterproof Case.

I bought these waterproof cases off amazon, and they worked perfectly. (Remember, 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 any 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 height of 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!
