School’s out for the summer and we at EGG’s Styling couldn’t be more excited! With summer comes sleeping in, relaxing in the sun, and most importantly, BEACH DAYS. Keep on reading for some tips on what to bring with you to the beach!

First, we’ll start off with the obvious needs: a swimsuit, cover up, sandals, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Make sure you bring something easy and comfortable to throw over your suit, and keep your cute sunnies in a durable case so they don’t get crushed in your bag.

Now on to some more exciting essentials. While playing in the waves and building sand castles is fun, it’s important to bring things to keep you entertained while your laying out in the sun. We suggest your phone and some headphones, a new book, or some fashion magazines! Keep your phone in a waterproof case or a zip-lock bag to protect it from the sand and salt water.

Be sure to bring some beauty supplies with you! To keep your look fresh all day, wear a light primer or tinted moisturizer over your sunscreen. Chap stick with SPF is a must to keep your lips hydrated and protected from the sun. If your hair tends to go crazy after a day in the water, a salt spray will be your BEST FRIEND. It helps keep your hair de-tangled and smooth, preventing frizziness and keeping your beachy waves intact. Throw a few hair ties in your bag in case you want to throw your hair up and keep it out of the way.

A few other essentials include some water and snacks to stay nourished, a phone charger, your wallet and some extra cash, and a hat. With all these items in your bag, you’re sure to have an amazing beach day!
