When the idea of going to the beach pops up in summer, the first thoughts that come are of relaxing on the beach, enjoying the summer breeze against one’s skin whilst getting a tan under the sun.

1. Sunscreen & Sunglasses

An essential thing to carry along – for those with the fear of a tan- is applying sunscreen. Unless one is looking to get sun burnt then one can ignore the sunscreen. It is best to apply sunscreen before one leaves the house or ones hotel room, so it’s well absorbed before one reaches the beach. 

Secondly, wearing sunglasses will protect eyes from the harsh sunrays. This way one can relax on the beach bed and not be blinded by the sunrays.

Believe me these two items are a life savers when one heads to the beach. Carrying an umbrella or a sunhat helps one protect your skin for the ultraviolet rays of the sun. With these one doesn’t have to go chasing the shade, the umbrella or the hat can save one from that.
