Hitting the tropics is a favorite during these sweltering months. From Gokarna to Krabi every beach is filled with people trying to escape into the inviting waters. However sweet the idea may seem, the Sun is always there to play spoilt-sport. But our celebs know how to take care of themselves, and in this article, we spill the beans. Want to know how to avoid the tan lines from your swimsuit? Or how to look chic with minimal accessories? Keep reading to find out.
A couple of things become basic essentials while planning a trip to the sandy shores. Here are your basic beach-y essentials. Don’t ever hit a beach without these!
Sunblock: A good sunblock is the most essential component. Slather yourself! If you have oily skin go for Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 50+ or LOTUS Safe Sun SPF 50.
Big Hat: Go for a trendy hat, but make it big. Pick the floppy hat for the perfect look. Mix and match and pair it with your bikini.
Beach Bag: A large tote will do the trick. If you want to go hands-free try a cute cloth backpack.
Sunglasses: Forget these and you may as well just cancel your trip! Go for sunglasses that suit the shape of your face.
Swimwear: Always carry 2-3 pairs of swimwear. Keep a balanced mix of swimsuits and bikinis and tankinis.
Pro Tip1: Go for a high waist lower if you have certain areas that need hiding. There’re plenty of options you can go for. Check out the two above from Malaika Arora Khan‘s The Lable life.
Pro Tip2: Go for a bikini that goes well with your body type. If you are top heavy, you should go with a underwire bikini top that offers enough support.
Cover-ups: Cover-ups are essential to look chic. Opt for something in soothing summer colors or go for whites for the day-time. Stick to deep colors for the evening.
Spunk it up with a dash of minimal accessories like an anklet, a head band or a pair of feather earrings.
