Before you head to the beach this weekend, it’s essential to make sure that you’ve packed the right products in your beach bag. From miracle mineral sunscreens to a hair-protection spray that smells like the holidays, these products will not only leave you looking and feeling your best, but they’ll protect you from top to toe too. Read on to discover Savoir Flair’s top five beach beauty products perfect for a sandy, sunny day.
The Refreshing Boost
This magical mist not only protects skin from harmful UV rays, but it also contains cellular water to optimize skin cells’ vital functions and to help skin defend itself against environmental damage. Even though it contains no SPF, its clever formula protects you from the aging effects of the sun for up to eight hours, and it’s seriously refreshing when you need a cooling boost.
The Face Protector
Sunscreen + sensitive skin = disaster. Chemical sunscreen filters in most traditional sun-protection products can aggravate more delicate complexions, resulting in breakouts, discomfort, and sore skin. That’s where this new fabulous face protector comes into play, because, thanks to the clever Kiehl’s chemists who have formulated a 100 percent mineral-based filter, even the most sensitive and spot-prone skins will be protected from harmful rays whilst skin is soothed. Combined with the antioxidant and skin-conditioning benefits of vitamin E, this product is a real beach-bag winner.
The Hair Hero
The ultimate way to get beach-beautiful locks is with Nuxe’s new ‘Sun Milky Oil’, which covers all your hair needs. Containing a combination of three sunscreens and rice protein extract, it protects the hair and scalp from the harmful effects of the sun and seawater without drying it out. Enriched with coconut oil, it helps repair the hair fiber, and thanks to kau pe flowers it nourishes locks from the inside out to keep hair feeling and looking its best. Not only that, it also smells like a tropical holiday in a bottle, and it’s alcohol free and water resistant. Simply spray before you step into the sun and your locks will be loved all day long.

The Lip Lover
When it comes to beach time, many of us are guilty of failing to protect our pouts. This protective lip tint from Elizabeth Arden is enriched with sunscreen, vitamin E, and emollients so it not only fights off the harmful effects of UV rays, but also softens, smoothes, and moisturizes mouths to keep them silky soft. It has the added bonus of giving your pout a pop of color, from a hint of honey to a burst of berry, to keep you looking sensational in the sand.

The Body Protector
Make chalky residue and embarrassing white smears a thing of the past with Clinique’s mineral sunscreens. Formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, they use invisible shield technology to protect skin without coating it in a thick, hard-to-rub-in lotion. Instead, they’re incredibly lightweight, blendable, non-greasy, and fast-absorbing, and they’re gentle enough to use on very sensitive skin. Shake before use and apply before sun exposure for the perfect protecting product.
