Heading to the beach this summer? A great beach trip involves fun and sun, as well as a little preparation. Before you embark on a tropical beach vacation or take a day trip, make sure you are packing these must-have beach essentials.
Aloe Up Pro Ultra Sport SPF 50 Lotion 4 oz
While you may want a bronze summer tan, too much sun exposure can be disastrous for your skin. Excessive UV exposure ages the skin and increases your risk of cancer, which is why a good sunscreen is so essential. The Aloe Up Pro Ultra Sport SPF 50 Lotion is an SPF 50 sunscreen containing 35% by volume per Aloe Vera Gel, which allows the product to penetrate your skin and breathe without leaving greasy residence. It’s water and sweat resistant and provides full UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum Protection. Retails for $13.95.
Grand Trunk Parasheet Single Beach Blanket
The Grand Trunk Parasheet Single Beach Blanket was designed with beachgoers in mind. Unlike an ordinary blanket that allows sand and dirt to get ground into their fabric and tends to smell mildewy when wet, the Parasheet is made from super-durable parachute nylon, allowing it to remain tidy and funk-free. Parachute nylon fabric is extremely lightweight, quick drying and resistant to mildew. Retails for $24.99.
Grand Trunk Sun & Beach Shelter
The Grand Trunk Sun & Beach Shelter is designed to protect you and your family from UV rays while at the beach. The removable PU-coated floor provides a clean, smooth spot to sit. But, if you’d rather sit directly on the sand, you can just fold up the floor and set it aside. This beach tent also includes an overhead mesh gear loft to keep smaller items organized, as well as the ground stakes essential for pitching. Retails for $99.99.
Buff Sport Series Water 2 Gloves
If your beach trips involve water sports, then the Buff Sport Series Water 2 Gloves are a must-have item. The gloves naturally contour to your hands and protect them from sunburn, blisters, cuts and other on-the-water hazards. These gloves provide UPF 50+ for ultimate UV protection. Their stretchy, breathable fabric keeps your hands cooler and drier than wearing no gloves at all, and the unique grip and half finger length mean you can keep them on all day long. Retails for $28.93.
