5 Essentials for the Perfect Beach Day

5 Essentials for the Perfect Beach Day

Who doesn’t love the beach? However, sometimes, in our enthusiasm to get out there and soak up those rays, it's easy to forget what you need for an optimum beaching experience. Don’t worry though, we are here to help with this one-stop list of the 5 things you’ll need for the perfect beach day:

  1. Sun Protection

Let’s be honest, all we really want after a day at the beach is perfect sun-kissed skin, but don’t forget to bring sun protection! We’re talking sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, beach umbrellas - the works! Nothing ruins a beach day like a terrible sunburn or worse, heat stroke. Play safe out there!

  1. Bathing Suit

It isn’t a beach day without a super cute bathing suit to show off in the water. Whether you decide to go with “old-faithful” or treat yourself to something new, be sure that your swimsuit of choice makes you FEEL as fabulous as you look!

  1. Beach Snacks

Don’t forget to pack some yummy, beach-appropriate snacks to munch on throughout the day. Beach snacks are not only delicious, but they are also essential to keep yourself from overheating in the summer sun when it’s hot and humid outside! Why not pack some freshly sliced watermelon, veggies, and cucumber-infused water to keep yourself full and hydrated!

  1. Waxed Legs & Bikini

While waxing is not essential and is always a personal choice, many of us feel more confident in that teeny bikini after we’ve had a good waxing session! Why not skip the salons and give Parissa at-home waxing a try?

All Parissa Waxes are natural and free of harmful additives so you can find the wax that works for you without negative effects on the environment or your body!

Parissa Organic Sugar Wax is great for sensitive skin, while Parissa Hot Wax is perfect for targeting even the most coarse and stubborn hairs. While you’re at it, why not grab a box of Parissa Wax Strips, like the Legs and Body Wax Strips, to throw in your bag, for touch-ups while on holiday? Wax Strips are great for beginners and easy to use for even the most novice of waxers!

Waxing not only leaves you with soft, smooth skin, but it will also aid you in the tanning process! As wax removes body hair it works as an exfoliant to remove dead skin from the surface of your skin, which will leave you with a darker and more even result after tanning!

Once you find the waxing routine that works best for you, make sure to maintain a consistent schedule to benefit from all that waxing has to offer. The more you wax, the longer it will take for your hair to grow back and the less regrowth you will have, so for the best summer skin, start your waxing regimen before summer starts to have the least regrowth possible!

It is best to wait 2-4 weeks after your last shave for hair regrowth to be at the optimum length to wax. After your first waxing session, however, it will take 4-5 weeks before your hair starts to grow back! Don’t forget to plan ahead, though, as you should not sunbathe or swim for at least 24 hours after waxing, at the risk of developing ingrown hairs and irritating your skin.

For extra exfoliation after waxing, to reduce ingrown hairs and keep your skin looking great for as long as possible, use the Parissa Ingrown Rescue Kit! The lightweight Tea Tree Soap rinses away impurities, as the Konjac Sponge actively exfoliates, and the Parissa Ultra Soothe Oil replenishes and restores your skin's essential oils. This 3-step kit to soothe inflamed skin has everything you need to keep your skin soft, moisturized and free of ingrown hairs!

  1. A Good Book to Read

Lastly, don’t forget to pack a good book to read as you listen to the sound of waves lapping on the shore, enjoy your yummy snacks, and tan your silky-smooth legs!

Summers are never long enough, but when you keep these 5 things you’ll need for the perfect beach day in mind, you will not only have one perfect beach day, but you will also have many perfect beach days yet to come! Now, get out there and enjoy your beach time to the fullest!
