My favorite thing in life right now is the beautiful, secluded beach 100 steps from our apartment door.
Even on a weekend afternoon, there's hardly anyone in sight. I'd always fantasized about returning to the tropics. A beachfront apartment seemed like a stretch goal.
Now I can wake up, throw on a bikini, grab my beach bag, and 2 minutes later, I'm at the beach.
What do you keep on hand during hot summer days? Aside from my sketchbook and water canteen, I have 4 summer essential beauty products that I use daily:
1. SKIN: MyChelle Sun Shield SPF 28
I love to sunbathe.
I feel genuinely better when I've got a good glow going on, but applying - and reapplying - sunblock is still a must. It took me forever to find one that really worked for me. MyChelle Dermaceuticals Sun Shield is my favorite!
I love MyChelle Sun Shield!
It has a very sheer, non-greasy texture despite zinc oxide (which is naturally white) being the active ingredient.
You can check out the excellent specs on the MyChelle website.
Their site says it's out of stock right now. That's okay, there are plenty of places to pick it up.
You can buy MyChelle Sun Shield here!
2. MAKEUP: Skindinavia Bridal Setting Spray
Do you like to wear pink eyebrows and cateyes to the beach?
Welcome to the club. If so, you need a really strong makeup setting spray in your life.
Skindinavia Bridal Setting Spray is a must-have product in any makeup kit.
It lasts all day and is weather, sweat, and water resistant. It won't hold up to actually submerging oneself in the ocean. But if you want to sunbathe and splash around a bit and have your makeup look great while doing it?
Skindinavia is IT.
For major hold, use 3 layers!
3. HAIR & SCALP: R&CO High Dive Moisture & Shine Creme
