For Unbeatable Tech
When you’re soaking in some rays, it can be hard to determine when exactly you should reapply your block. Sure you could wait every-so-often, but for a gadget that accurately measures sun exposure, the JUNE by netatmo Platinum Color gadget is sure to do the trick. Although it looks like a stylish bracelet, this high-tech beach bag beauty essential delivers helpful notifications on when you should reapply any sun protecting products.
Even the most diligent SPF-toting of us can fall victim to the sun’s wrath. Thankfully your dermatologist can now jump-start your healing process with more than a topical steroid. The use of a red diode light from the Healite II from Lutronic can decrease the inflammation associated with a bad sunburn. It’s FDA-approved to decrease inflammation and can relieve a bit of the pain associated with the sizzle in just a few minutes.
For SPF Wipes
For effective sun protection that doesn’t have to cramp up your bag, portable wipes are good thing to have on hand. To treat your skin to essential SPF 30, trust these lightweight wipes to set into the skin quickly without leaving a greasy or oily residue.
For Innovative Bug Protection
The looming threat of bug bites is always a hassle when you’re trying to relax on the beach, so to rev up your bug protection, you don’t have to settle for a product that flat out stinks. For a insect repelling spray that smells just like your favorite perfume, the Aromaflage Fragrance & Insect Repellent wards away insects while delivering notes of cedarwood and vanilla to your skin.
For A Sand-Free Beach Towel
There’s nothing worse than the elements wreaking havoc on your beach towel, so if you’re on the hunt for both a sand and water ready staple, this unique pick me up picks up less sand than a terry cloth towel. Also drying faster than most towels, you won’t have to worry about lugging around a soaked towel once you’re ready to call it a day.
For Recovering Strands
Overexposure to the sun’s rays can leave your hands parched and dry, so to help your strands bounce back, adding in a nourishing recovery spray can totally work wonders. For a leave-in-conditioner that revitalizes overworked hair, keep this Alterna must-have on hand for instant relief.
