Nothing is quite so quintessentially Australian than long summer days spent at the beach. But you know what makes it even better? Packing the perfect beach bag full only of essentials so you don’t have to move from your spot the entire day. From protecting your skin to staying fresh, here is our edit of the must-haves for your summer beach bag.
An SPF lip balm:
For something that’s used as much as our lips, they really don’t get enough care. We’re here to change that. An SPF lip balm is as essential as SPF for your body/ face, because not only are they exposed, they’re delicate — and the sun doesn't spare your lips. The We Are Feel Good Sensitive Lip Balm and Salt and Stone SPF 30 Lip Balm are both enriched with nourishing ingredients to keep the lips soft and smooth, but they also high high-;level SPF protection to shielf from harmful UV rays too.
Broad spectrum SPF 30+ or higher:
We will never stop talking about using sunscreen. The greatest anti-ageing product that ever existed, if you’re not using this, you may as well chuck out the rest of your beauty routine. Oh and it can help protect you from skin cancer too. Sold yet? In Australia the only way to go is broad spectrum 30 or 50+. The We Are Feel Good Signature SPF50 and Salt and Stone Sunscreen SPF 30 offer both these things! With broad-spectrum high SPF protection, to guard your skin against UVA and UVB rays, they’re also ightweight and non-greasy, they're perfect for all-day wear.
We all know we should be using sunscreen (see our love note above). And we all know that we should be reapplying every two hours (or sooner if you’re sweating/swimming) — we all know that right? But even the most sun-safe of us slip up occassionally, which is where after-sun comes in to rejuvenate the skin. Products like Badger Balm Aloe Vera Gel, Badger Balm After Sun Balm, and We Are Feel Good After Sun are ideal for calming and hydrating sun-exposed skin. Their natural formulations soothe and repair, ensuring your skin remains healthy, hydrated and moisturised.
Deodorant: Stay Fresh
If there’s one thing that will ruin the summer vibe it’s pongy pits. In the summer heat, a good deodorant is your best friend, and what better deo to use that the TIkTok-famous Salt and Stone varieties. These natural deodorants come in extra-strength (with bicarb) and sensitive (without bicarb) depending on your preference. Our picks are teh Salt and Stone Bergamot Hinoki Extra Strength Deodorant and Eucalyptus and Cedarwood Deodorant for natural, effective odor protection and refreshing scents that are perfect for a long day at the beach.
