Of course lounging on the sand is pleasant, but we’re all too familiar with those certain annoyances that can keep you just a little uncomfortable by the shore. On Better TV today, SheFinds shows you how to beat the heat (and the water, the seasickness, and the bikini bottoms that pinch your hips) with fashion and beauty finds made for beach bumming.
If you’re always losing things in your beach bag:
Somatic sunglasses not only offer 100% UV protection, the company also has a replacement guarantee: they’ll replace your glasses if they’re lost, stolen or broken within six months of purchase. We like the sleek Bebo style ($70) for beach jaunts as well as everyday wear.
If your wallet always winds up soaked:
The Wet Happened Wet Bag ($18-$22) is a polyurethane-lined, washable bag covered in cute fabric (so cute I couldn’t decide which design to post) that you can stow in your beach bag to keep damp clothes separate from the rest of your stuff.
If you can’t leave home without some coverage:
Makeup usually washes off in the water and smudges in the sun. But CoverBlend’s concealers, like the Corrective Leg and Body Makeup ($18) below, are water- and smudge-resistant, plus they provide protection with SPF 18, so you can swim and surf worry-free.
If your makeup melts:
Like a lunchbox for your cosmetics, the IcyBag ($15-$20) and its freezable gel pack will keep your lipstick (or energy bar) from becoming a melty mess in the sun.
If you’d rather the boat not rock:
Using acupressure, waterproof and adjustable Psi Bands ($15 for two) will curb the seasickness that threatened to ruin your yacht ride.
If you’re forever adjusting your bikini bottoms:
Syla Beachwear has the answer, in the form of bra-strap-like adjustable bottom like the one on their arty-looking Carolina bikini ($251).
