If you find yourself too busy or chilly to make it to the beach this season, you can still rock a beachy look without hitting the sand. There’s a natural radiance that seems to come from people after a day at the beach. Their hair flows, their skin glows, and yours can too, with these few products and tricks.
1. For beachy waves
The ocean is not the only spray that can run salt through your hair. Sea salt spray has the same texturizing effect. It defines natural waves into beachy curls without the weight of hairspray or gel. Organix Moroccan Sea Salt Spray is available at Rite Aid for $7.99, among other varieties.
2. For natural highlights
With the right hair color, a dash of lemon or Sun In can create highlights equivalent to hours in the bright ocean side sun. Apply before a walk outside or meal on the patio, and it will magnify the suns rays for a golden, sun-kissed look. This product is only $5.99 at Rite Aid, but you can find it at any local drug store!
3. For beachy smells and an oily shine
Everyone comes back from the beach smelling and glistening of coconut sunscreen. This tropical lotion will remind you and those around you of beach days, and the lotion’s shine will simulate that after-sun glow. Bath and Body works has a Waikiki Beach Coconut Body Lotion for $6.25.
4. For beachy style
Halter bralettes are all the rage this summer, poking out from every tank top. The right summery bralette can create that cute, cover-up look without actually wearing a bathing suit. This one from Urban Outfitters, priced at $34, is perfect for the Fourth of July!
