I have two new favorites for my beach days this summer:
BEACH CHAIRS. Why have I been going without you all these years?! Laying in the sand on a lumpy towel?! What a rookie. Joe has since shown me the ways of the beach chair this summer, and there is no going back!! We got ours for pretty cheap at Rite Aid: they have canvas handles for carrying on your shoulder, and adjust to recline back.
Needless to say, though, my front is much more tan than my back, because tanning my back does require leaving my wonderful chair for said lumpy towel...
Also, for the "after sun" care...aka when you get sunburned; oops.
Banana Boat makes an amazing ALOE SPRAY! Click here to view product information.
I have always been a big fan of aloe after a day in the sun. Cooling, refreshing, and very moisturizing.
But. it is goopy, and you have to glob it all over yourself (dramatic...).
THIS is a continuous spray gel! Just like the sunscreen/tanning dry oil that I use. Genius.
I still rub it in, because if you use a lot it drips, but this still is such a great invention. Love it! So there.
