Beach Products

Have you ever spent a day at the beach swimming only to go home and realise that you actually look pretty great?

Whether it’s thanks to the sea or the sun, a day at the beach can give you a natural glow. The problem? Exposing your skin to the sun can not only lead to skin cancer, but also sun damage and premature aging. 

So, it’s time to consider alternatives. By incorporating a few products to your regimen, you can achieve a just-stepped-off-the-beach look without causing permanent skin damage.

We’ve rounded up a few of the best products to give you beachy waves, glowy skin and a faux glow. We’ve taken care to find the best of the best so that you can look like a beach babe every day.  

To see some of our favourite products for creating a beach look, continue on. 

Best Beach Hair Products

Bumble and Bumble, Surf Spray ($41)

A fan favourite, Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray is perfect for achieving the perfect beach look. Plus, it’s a super-easy step to add to your morning routine. All you need to do is spray a little in after the shower, squeeze out excess water, and let it dry naturally. 

Evo, Salty Dog ($22.40)

Similar to the Surf Spray, this product achieves the same look at a slightly lower price point. If you’re unsure about the idea of putting salt into your freshly-cleaned hair, this is a good option to start with to see if it works for you. With low shine, this product leaves your hair looking just as natural is it would if you spend all morning at the beach. 

Redken, Beach Envy Volume Texturizing Shampoo ($24.80)

Building up the perfect texture begins as soon as you shampoo your hair, and this one doesn’t disappoint. This shampoo works for all hair types, promoting wavy, texturised tresses. The effect will be different on everyone, but you can expect a little extra oomph after a wash with this.

Best Faux-Glow Products

Eco Tan, Winter Skin ($29.95)

Made with natural ingredients, Eco Tan’s Winter Skin is both good for you and great looking. In addition to bronzing the skin, this product also moisturises — win, win.

St Tropez, Gradual Tan In Shower Tanning Lotion, ($19.99)

If applying self-tanner is too much effort for you, this shower gel might be the solution you’ve been looking for. Lather it on, wait three minutes, and then rinse it off. Easy as can be! The result is gradual, meaning that you don’t have to worry about coming out orange after one application. 

Dr Dennis Gross, Alpha Beta Glow Pad Gradual Glow ($58.00)

Another great solution for those who are tired of spending precious time applying fake tan, worrying whether you actually got that spot on your back this time. These towelettes make application so much easier, and they work on your face too for an all-over glow. 

Best Beach Makeup Products

Juice Beauty, Phyto-Pigments Last Looks Cream Blush ($38.00)

Lather up with sunscreen while in the sun and apply blush later for a flushed rosy-cheek effect. This is a current favourite as the colour is so flattering, and it’s also made with all-natural ingredients. 

Becca, Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter ($57.00)

Becca is notorious for its glowy highlighter. With a warm gold tone, this Prosecco Pop highlighter makes it appear as though a golden-hour glow is perpetually following you. 

Drunk Elephant, D-Bronzi™ Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops ($55.00)

Add a few of these drops to your usual serum, moisturiser or oil for a healthy, sunkissed look. A little goes a long way, so this tube will likely last you a while.
