Between skin-baring bikinis and humidity that can wreck your hair and melt your makeup, looking good on the beach is no easy feat. Here’s how to look your best at the beach from head to toe!
Bella Thorne, 17, is an expert when it comes to looking perfectly put together while melting in the hot sun. From her glowing complexion to her chip-free manicure and not-a-hair-out-of-place coiffure, there’s no denying the actress has beach beauty down. Luckily, we found the products to cheat your way to a Bella-worthy beach Instagram — and when in doubt, follow Bella’s lead and throw on you largest pair of sunnies!
Body Basics: If you’re naturally pale or just want a little boost before you go to the beach in the form of a subtle bronze, use The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil for a full-body golden, dewy effect. Regardless of whether you apply a glow-enhancing product or not, be sure to apply (and re-apply every 2 hours) a sunscreen like Australian Gold Sheer Coverage Continuous Spray SPF 50. When going sans makeup isn’t an option, go for a light base like L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Illuminator Tinted All-In-1 Moisturizer with SPF 20 for added protection.
Mane Priority: If frizzy hair is a major concern, you have two options: Pull your hair into a sleek top knot or messy side braid and let it be, or keep it controlled with styling products. To help create beachy waves that won’t dry out or get sticky, Kerastase Spray A Porter helps define textured waves and provides UV protection.

Finishing Touches: Of course, you can’t forget about your beach mani and pedi. Make sure your feet are flip flop ready with the Amope Pedi Perfect, and coat your nails (and toes) in a fresh shade for summer from Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer Shine Collection.
What’s your biggest beach woe, HollywoodLifers? Will you be taking any of these beauty products with you when you hit the sand this summer?
