Essentials for a day by the water and the sun
Whether its a day at the lake or an entire weekend, you want to make sure you've packed all the necessities. We wanted to share our lake trip essentials with you.
First and foremost you don't want to forget your sunglasses. Believe me, I've done it, we all have, and it makes for a long day of squinting and a headache. Pack your favorite pair of sunnies, maybe even two so you have a back up in case the worst happens...you sit on them or somehow they get broken.
We always carry our favorite tote bag to fill with all the essentials. A tote bag is the perfect go to to fit everything and anything. From a beach towel to sunscreen and snacks, you can really fit it all. You want to make sure to have a change of clothes in your tote. We always pack a tank or two along with a pair of shorts and sandals. Oh and you can forget a sundress. Something comfortable and lightweight to throw on over your suit.
After a long day at the beach you want to make sure to keep your hair and skin feeling nourished and healthy. The sun and water can dry you out. We always bring our favorite Michigan made beauty products from Damn Fancy. Burnt and cracking lips are the worst. We use tangerine lip nectar to keep our lips hydrated and soft.
Once we are out of the sun we use a face serum from Damn Fancy to leave our face feeling nourished and smooth. This will help hydrate your skin after a long day in the sun and soothe it if you have a sun burn. Lastly, we apply hair serum to give our hair the perfect touchable softness and shine. Damn Fancy products make a day at the lake that much more enjoyable knowing you hair and skin will look flawless even after being in the sun and the water.
