I’m Beach Ready! Are You?


I don’t think I could ever express how much I love the beach in one post. There’s just something about the warm sun on my skin, the sand between my toes, and the sound of the waves that bring this chick to her most calming state of mind. Living in L.A., I’m lucky to have the beach right outside my front door. It’s definitely one of the perks to living here. That being said, I have to make sure that I’m always beach ready.

For me, being beach ready is more than just beach chairs and umbrellas. I have to make sure I’m prepared in other ways. Hair removal, for example,  is the first thing I think about. Now, let’s not act shy about shaving—we all have body hair! I make sure to deal with this the day before. Never on the day I’m heading out to the beach. The salty sea water wreaks havoc on my freshly shaved skin. And I don’t want to have to deal with any skin irritation.

I always make sure to have the perfect swimsuit ready. Unfortunately, I’m not a bikini kind of girl. Too bad for all of you  beach goers. So, it’s a one piece for me. When I’m getting beach ready, I make sure to try on swimwear that I feel comfortable in. Having to brave the waves in a skimpy suit is not my idea of beach fun. I don’t want to come up out of the water with a total wardrobe malfunction, if you know what I mean.

My summer beauty regimen for the beach also consists of UV protectant for my hair and always wearing long lasting and durable nail polish on my toes. I also make sure I have all the muy importante accessories. Never…and I mean NEVER…do I head to the beach or even think about it without my broad spectrum sunscreen and lip balm with SPF.  And lastly, I can’t forget my sunglasses with proper UV protection and a pair of comfy and colorful flip flops.

Did I get you in the mood for sun and sand with my beach ready routine?

    I have never been a beach person. I can spend about an hour exploring then I get bored. I can’t just “sun”. It’s funny because most of my friends over the years have been beach bunnies of some form or other. You looked so relaxed and at peace there.
