I’m sharing #Aveeno®advocates in my life as a sponsored series for Socialstars™
I grew up in South America, where the sun beats 365 days, our winter never brought temperatures lower than 75F and I can still remember all the summer beach vacations without sun screen or any protection at all, when I was younger! Huge mistake! As soon as I was in my teens, I started looking for products with sun screen and beach time meant covering my skin with SPF 35 at least! That habit prevented aging and dark spots on my skin! So important to start early!
So, Summer is here! With the sun, the heat, it’s time to enjoy that boat ride on the lake, a beach day or a pool to cool it off! My summer fun doesn’t stop but that doesn’t mean I don’t take care of my skin, because future summer happiness depends on that! On the fact that I have a healthy skin that allows me to enjoy time in the sun!
For me, it starts with Protecting + Hydrating: finding a superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection and 24-hour moisture to keep my skin soft and smooth! Before, during and after the fun time in the sun!
So I’ve decided to share what’s in my summer bag, hoping it will help you too! Enjoy those long lasting summer fun days for a long time!
What’s in my summer bag?
I have a collection of different hats to match my bathing suits and different summer dresses when time in the sun is just a party or picnic outdoors!
The perfect summer hat for women needs to have a wide brim to give me that extra protection even when I’m in the sun without an umbrella.
That is my absolute must have in my beach bag! I can forget anything but this item! A good sunscreen such as Aveeno, which is my absolute favorite, should provide 24 hour moisturization without the heavy residue, leaving skin feeling healthy and beautiful. I don’t just use it on my face, I actually use it on my chest and hands as well!
A Stylish Coverup
I always bring an additional summer cover up, colorful, light and stylish to give me that extra protection if I want to take a walk or if we decide to extend our beach day on the boardwalk!
I always carry a small bag inside my summer bag to have beach tags, money, my phone and my reading glasses. Items I want protected from water and sand. I usually don’t carry my wallet with me for various reasons, such as my social security and other credit cards don’t belong at the beach and I’m also afraid they will bend with the extreme sunny days! So a small bag is the perfect solution! This one is leather, waterproof, better than plastic.
I don’t go out on a summer day without sun glasses. They protect my eyes and the area around them, allowing you to say bye bye to wrinkles from sun damage in that area.
Sunglasses should fit your face and your taste, I own a few pairs, but at the beach, I always prefer the large ones!
I know this one will surprise you! It’s my new must have! After being at the beach all day, I wash my legs and arms in the beach shower locations, the same at the pool club and water parks and I apply Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion while my skin is warm after sun exposure. It gives me that special glow but also immediately protects those areas after sun exposure! This is my best kept secret for younger looking skin without sacrificing spending time in the sun!
The Sheer Hydration: absorbs in seconds and moisturizes for 24 hours with a powder-light feel, which I love!
I hope my post gave you new ideas to pack your summer bag next time you go out! I can’t wait to hear what is in YOUR summer bag!
