Hair

The beach is the best place to spend your days during the summer! Unfortunately, that ocean breeze can get turn your tresses into quite the tangled mess. Always keep some Beach Freak Moisturizing Detangler Spray from Bed Head by TIGI in your beach bag so you can kiss those knots goodbye! Once you're tangle-free, grab your Beach Me Wave Defining Mist Gel and you'll be rocking the mermaid hair in no time. And be sure to keep that beachy style intact through the next day with Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo!

Summer is the best time of the year to rock that natural glow, and a naturally plump lip is the perfect final touch for that look! Buxom's Full-On™ Lip Polish in Dolly is the easiest way to get that perfect pout. Be sure to use the code HERCAMPUS for 20% off your purchase from buxomcosmetics.com!

Skin

As much fun as it is to bask in the sun, it's more important than ever to take care of your skin during the summer months. We love the way the Feeling Beautiful™ Clearing Sweet Tea + Lemon Peel-Off Mask soothes and tones after a long day of basking in the sunshine. Feeling like your skin can't breathe? Put on a Feeling Beautiful™ Polishing Charcoal + Black Sugar Gel Mask + Scrub and say sayonara to to oil and impurities!

Body

Just In Case

Don't let a busted pair of sunglasses ruin your beach day! Always keep some Krazy Glue All Purpose Singles in your beach bag for on-the-fly fixes. Better yet, keep them in an adorable pouch from the Her Campus Shop!
