Ahhh, a day at the beach. Show up pasty and plain and return home hours later with a rosy glow, streaky highlights and feet softer than they were after your last pedicure. If only there was a way to capture the beautifying benefits of the sun, sand and surf without having to book an island getaway. Oh wait—there is. Thanks to these ocean-inspired body skin and hair care essentials, you can feel beach beautiful no matter where you are, no matter what time of year.
Whether you grew up just a few miles from the sea and sand or enjoy the beach’s brilliance on holidays, there’s something about the ocean air that makes eating inevitable. My brother and I viewed snacks by the surf, in fact, as a required element in trips to the beach (sort of like sand in your swimsuit but much more fun!).
It’s getting hot out there. You know what that means: beach and pool party invitaitons incoming! Finally, it’s time to show off everything you accomplished during the off season. Not quite ready for that first unveiling of the summer? Get with this plan, and you will be in no time.
When Daylight’s Saving Time hits is usually about the time I realize I am going to be escorting my children to the pool on a regular basis in a mere two month’s time. Therefore, I must shed the extra pounds not-so-discretely hidden under my winter sweaters.
Oh how babies love the beach! The wind tickles their tiny toes and makes them giggle; the sand is fun to sift through with chubby little hands; the ocean is a source of endless mystery and amusement. Not so amusing, however, is a baby with a sunburn. Not only can a burn cause temporary discomfort, but the damage to tender skin also can have long-term repercussions, and repeated burns can result in lesions and even skin cancer.
Being cooped up all winter is no fun. Now that spring is (finally!) here, why not take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside for some fresh air, sunshine and exercise? There are endless fun and creative ways to work out outdoors—most of which won’t cost you a thing. So slather on some sunscreen, fill up that water bottle and try these ideas to get moving outside the gym or home.
