HOME / BEAUTY / FORGET THEM NOT: YOUR ULTIMATE BEACH PACKING CHECKLIST

Get ready for your summer trip.

The heat is on! The sea is calling! Now that it’s summer, we find ourselves fantasizing about our much-needed trip to the beach. Our friends are in search of the hottest spots where we can swim, chill and soak up the sun as we please. All the booking is done and plans are finally set. Yet, come days before the vacay, excitement gets the best of you and panicking at the last minute occurs because of one major thing: you haven’t started packing yet! We’d like to call it vacation jitters and we’re here to help you sort out the essentials especially when you’re too busy to remember other things.

1. For A Stylish Swim

As you look forward to getting a dose of Vitamin Sea, make sure you swear by the rules of swimwear. First thing is choosing a bathing suit that marries comfort and style. Don’t forget to bring your beach towel so you can easily dry up after taking a dip. Wearing flip flopsis also a must as you walk on hot sand. Maintain your cool girl status with a pair of sunglasses even when you’re just chilling by the shore.

2. For A #NoFilter Glow

Temperature’s rising and your skin is pleading for a more summer-friendly beauty routine. Yes, ladies, beach makeup is a thing when you want to appear as radiant as possible on vacation selfies, at summer parties and basically where the sun hits. We’ve scoured the shelves and MAC Lightful C stands out. The Lightful C + Coral Grass SPF 30 Foundation not only illuminates but also hydrates the skin. It leaves a naturally matte finish that doesn’t look too cakey as the day goes on.

3. For Your Safety

Nobody wants a summer plan gone wrong. So, it’s best you come prepared whenever you embark on a getaway. Having a first aid kitin check for every beach trip can do you good in case of a sudden boo-boo (which we hope won’t happen!). When at the beach, it is expected that some of us would want to get a tan. But if you’re the type who wants to enjoy the heat minus the potential sunburn, hopefully a sunscreen lotion saves you from the hassle.

4. For Quick Touch-Ups

Your summer getaway doesn’t end here; the after-parties are just around the corner! When you go from one event to another, your look has to be perfect. Take a Lightful C + Coral Grass SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact with you! It rounds up all the things we love about the Lightful C foundation so your skin is always taken care of despite the heat wave.
