Summer is finally here and we’re ready to dig our toes into the sand and spend the day under the sun.

But before venturing to a seaside destination, you need to pack your beach bag. In partnership with Veet®, we’ve put together a list of seven things you need for guaranteed summer fun, from the all-important sunblock to products that help your legs look radiant.

  • Sunscreen

    No matter your skin colour, everyone should invest in sunscreen to protect themselves. Look for the words “broad spectrum” on your bottle as that’s an indication that your sunscreen will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. It’s also important to see if your lotion is expired as the active ingredients that protect you from the sun deteriorate over time. Oh, and remember to reapply frequently because sweat and the water you swim in both wash away sunscreen.
  • Sunscreen...For Your Hair

    You may have done your due diligence to protect your skin, but what about your hair? The sun can make your locks brittle and dry, so it’s important to purchase sun protection sprays and spritz sporadically. This product shields you from harmful rays and keeps your hair looking silky and vibrant.
  • Sunglasses

    It’s imperative you bring a pair of sunglasses to the beach. Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, they are fashion statements in and of themselves! Rock it, girl!
  • After-Sun Moisturizer

    Apply a good after-sun moisturizer when you get home from the beach. It soothes the skin, helps seal in the moisture and prevents any peeling that may occur.
  • Waterproof Disposable Camera

    You’ll be having a lot of fun on this beach bash and you’re going to want to capture every moment. Bring a waterproof disposable camera as it’s less bulky and will make for awesome scrapbook spreads!
  • Water

    Always remember to stay hydrated while at the beach. High temps cause our bodies to lose water faster than normal so it’s important to drink even when you don’t feel thirsty.
  • Hair Removal Creams
