Who doesn’t love to soak up some sun by the beach and sip on those colourful drinks? We all love us a good beach getaway, but things can get tricky when it comes to packing your beauty bag.

While you want to make sure your skin is well taken care of, you also want to look your best. Allow us to help you with a beauty checklist that will help you do both.

We are not even going to mention a sunscreen, you know that already. For everything else, here is a list of essentials for you to look like a goddess on the beach!
Let your skin breathe

Let your skin breathe

You don’t want your makeup to feel heavy on your skin, right? Flaunt your natural skin (and curves!) when you are at the beach. Stay away from foundation and opt for a good moisturiser and a concealer. If you do feel that you need some coverage, go for a lighter option like the Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Hydrating Mousse. It offers sheer coverage and helps even out your complexion.

Mix a small amount of moisturiser with the mousse and dab it across your face. The thin formula will give you sheer coverage and a subtle glow.

Flaunt your legs with Beauty Essentials

Flaunt your legs

Skirts, shorts, swimsuits or sarongs, whatever your choice, smooth and glowing legs are an absolute beach essential. Carry a dependable moisturising lotion like the Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion that will give you the legs you’ve been lusting after.

Waterproof Eyeliner

Water-proof it!

Use waterproof eyeliner and mascara when at the beach. They will not budge, no matter the sweat, heat or your romp in the water. You never know when you need to flutter those lashes at the cute bodyguard at the beach! Try the Lakmé Eyeconic Blue Mascara that has a pop of colour, giving you that little extra oomph factor.

Lip balm with SPF

Lip balm with SPF

Just like sun protection is essential for your skin, it is also necessary for your lips. The salty air at the beach and the exposure to the sun may wreak havoc on your lips and make it dry and dehydrated. Carry a lip balm and make sure it has sufficient SPF like the Lakmé Lip Love Lip Care in Strawberry. You don’t want to look less than fabulous in all those beach selfies, do you?

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

Good ol’ Vaseline

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is a must-have, wherever you go, and not just to a beach. This is because it has a many benefits. It can be used as a highlighter on your brow bone and cheekbones, a lip balm, moisturiser and can be used as a protective sealant on the ends of your hair. You can also tame flyaway hair and lightly apply it on your brows to help maintain their shape.
