Bethany Hamilton’s Beauty Products & Tips — Her Beach Must-Haves
Bethany is a total beach babe — she’s tall, blonde, and tan — so, of course, we had to pick her brain about her beauty routine. Since Bethany obviously spends so much time on the beach, she had some great beach beauty tips. First and foremost: sunscreen! “Sunscreen is my go-to beauty product. I use Eco logical,” said Bethany. She also added that you can’t just rely on sunscreen, though: “I pretty much live in a hat.”
After spending so much time in salt water, Bethany has to pay special attention to her hair. She recommends to always immediately wash the salt water out of your hair. She follows up with Aveda Damage Remedy Reconstructing Shampoo which strengthens damaged hair and Joico K-pak Reconstruct Conditioner. For her leave-in products, Bethany loves It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner — and coconut oil! Bethany says that the all-natural oil “seriously makes my hair like, so good. I’ll just sleep in it one night and shampoo it out the next day and my hair feels amazing!”
Bethany Spills On Her Upcoming Wedding
Bethany recently became engaged to her boyfriend of one year, Adam Dirks. Bethany is already planning her upcoming nuptials, but contrary to popular belief, she won’t be getting married on the beach! The surfer says: “I am getting married in Hawaii but we’re actually getting married not near the beach.” For her special day, Bethany says she wants a change of pace: “We spend so much time at the beach, so we’re like ‘Oh, let’s do something different!'”
On Being A Role Model And Tampax Pearl Active
Bethany loves her partnership with Tampax because it allows her to send a positive message to girls all over the country. “I look around and there are so many different people that could be considered role models — and I’m like, ‘I don’t know if I would want my daughter looking up to you when I’m a mom,'” says Bethany. So she strives to live a “pure and positive” life with Tampax. It allows her to “get the word out there to all the young girls.”
We love Bethany teaming up with Tampax! Do YOU, HollywoodLifers? Tell us below!
