Tips & Inspo to look and feel amazing on your next beach day or beach vacay!

Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen!

Sunscreen Sunscreen Sunscreen

We can't say it enough, use your sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. Be sure to choose a sunscreen that is minus the harsh chemicals, reef friendly and a minimum of SPF50+ for your face, SPF30+ for your body. Try our faves Sundust SPF5 Gold Shimmer Sunscreen for effortlessly glowing skin or Sunbutter Sunscreen. Don't forget your lips, applying a lip balm after your sunscreen will keep you kissable. We can't go past the Morrocan Mint Lip Balm and the silky smooth Salt & Stone SPF30 Lip Balm  for extra sun protection. Your skin will have that sunkissed healthy glow safely, before you know it! 

Fake it til you make it

Apply a fake tan or get a spray tan a few days before heading off, you'll be glowing instantly and feel ocean ready. Make sure you exfoliate before applying for smooth glowing skin. We love this body scrub that doubles as a bath soak from Butt Naked Body. Top it all off with their Body Glow Illuminating Oil for a dewy sunkissed look that'll take you from the beach to the bar - you glow girl!

Mani & Pedi all the way

Pamper those digits with a manicure and pedicure that will polish off any beach outfit and compliment your glowing skin. Use a scrub to exfoliate and keep your hands and feet silky soft. We love Butt Naked's Coconut & Lemon Sugar Scrub as it leaves our skin feeling amazingly soft and hydrated. Pro tip: walking barefoot on the beach helps to keep feet smooth all vacay long as sand is a natural exfoliant!

The Eyes Have It

Protect your pretty peepers with these standout retro shades from Happy to Sit on Your Face or the sustainable style of cult brand Reality Eyewear that enjoys a celeb following. 

If The Shoe Fits

To protect your feet (and that pedi!) you can't go past an ultra comfortable, multi tasking pair of slides for a day at the beach. These gorgeous waterproof sustainably made Holster Sundreamer Slides not only look and feel amazing but are the perfect beach must-have and will take you from the beach to hitting the showers to lunch with ease.

LOVE your bikini body

We are all different and that what makes us uniquely beautiful. No matter what shape or size you are, love your body and embrace your gorgeousness, your confidence will shine through and instantly enhance your natural beauty and charm. You know what they say, the best way to get a bikini body is to put a bikini on your body! 

It's In The Bag

Let's face it, one of the most handy and indispensable items for any beach excursion is the beach tote. Whether you're looking for large or small, boho chic, chic linen, natural Jute or gorgeous woven hemp we have you covered. Pick the ultimate statement beach bag to carry your beach essentials in style.

Throw in the towel

There's only one thing better than a gorgeous beach towel to lay on after a leisurely swim and that is a sand free quick drying and super versatile beach towel made from recycled plastic bottles. You gotta love that! These gorgeous lightweight towels come in standard & double sizes and are fully reversible. Want a chic cotton towel? Well try the stunning travel towels and cabana towels from The Beach People in our Home & Living Collection - divine patterns and they're also fully reversible. Both towel styles fold up to next to nothing and so are the perfect go to without taking up space. 

Stay Hydrated

Sun, Sea, Sand & Salt, what's not to love? Just remember that being by the beach all day can be dehydrating to be sure to keep your water intake up. Drinking plenty of water will also rehydrate your skin keeping it supple and smooth. These Insulated drink bottles will keep your cold drinks icy cold for hours on end, the bonus is they'll also keep your coffee hot for those early morning beach walks.

Cover up

Invest in a gorgeous Beach wrap, or mini dress and hat to take you from the sun lounge to the beach club in style. We hove the Cebu Pareos, Isla Cotton Mini and Joslin Mini Dresses from Nomad The Label for beautiful sustainable style. Complete your look with a gorgeous hat from popular Australian Labels such as FallenBrokenstreet, Ace of Something, The Beach People and Hobo & Hatch. Check out our stunning range of gorgeous go-anywhere hats here. You're sure to find a style you'll love!

Pro Tip: Let multifunctional pieces do the work for you and save space in your luggage for more important things (like that must have memento, or that cute guy from the hotel....).
