Summer must haves for your beach bag

We recommend a number of products throughout this article. Unless clearly stated, they’re not from LükBook, nor do we receive any benefit if you choose to purchase them. We’re just passionate about shopping and love to share our favourite finds!

The days are getting hotter, the year is starting to wind down, the cocktails couldn’t come sooner and all your friends and family are hitting the beach or lounging by a pool. 

So what are the all important summer must haves for your beach bag? Here are our top essentials to have a stunning beach moment every time:

1. The beach bag
First thing’s first: the beach bag of course. Lime green is serving this summer and we’ve found the perfect beach bag that does just that: this Terry Beach Tote in Wild Lime from Seafolly. It’s bright, fun, washable, and, as all great beach bags should, it has an internal pocket to keep all your valuables in too.

2. Protect that face
Your face is your money maker so we have to protect our most valuable asset! Spending time at the beach calls for all the sun safety products. We always start with a moisturiser and are loving the Caffeinated Face Moisturiser by Frank Body for a gorgeous smoothing effect. Then, while the bags under our eyes are Chanel, baby, they do need some extra attention. We are loving this ‘au naturale’  illuminating eye gel from Sukin.

Then the step not to forget! The Queen Screen SPF 50+ Luminising Serum Skinscreen is an essential. It’s super lightweight and glides on perfectly under your makeup. Our tip is to make sure to also cover your neck for extra protection. Then to take it to the next level with some light coverage we are loving the Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil with an added bonus of giving you the on trend dewy finish. 

3. A multifunctional wrap
A multifunctional wrap dress is a must have to take you from the beach to a cafe, or from pool side to a chic bar. This Goddess Wrap Dress in Turquoise (which can be found on LükBook) is just perfect! It can be worn open, tied at the front, or pop the ties through the side loopholes and tie at the back for an elegant dress. It is made from single lined bamboo that is sheer -perfect for hot summer days. 

4. Don’t sweat it!
We know it’s not the most sexy of topics, but sweat happens - and it has the potential to make for an uncomfortable time. For those of us with juicy thighs at times this can mean sore, red, chafed skin but we have you covered! We always have a high quality anti-friction balm like Megababe in our beach bag just in case.
