This summer, having the right products on hand is the key to a successful trip to the beach. It goes without saying (but you know I'll say it anyway), that the proper sunscreen for face, hair and lips comes first and foremost. Here are more great essentials to have on hand.


Gretta Monahan, host of Tim Gunn’s A Style Guide, raves about No Frizz by Living Proof (keeps your hair frizz free all day long), Dr. Denese Advanced Firming Facial Pads (cleans/exfoliates with one small pad), Frederic Fekkai Au Natural Dry Shampoo (freshens greasy hair), and Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20 (protects while giving skin a natural glow). Mascara is the only form of make-up that goes on my face at the beach. I love Prescriptives Here To Stay waterproof mascara. And if you aren't one to sun bathe, you can still sport a faux glow with Xen-Tan. Don't forget to take along a great beach towel to keep you dry, like this one from Paul Smith. Carry everything in style with this floral straw beach bag from J.Crew. Caring for hair over the summer is critical to its health.
