5. Lucy B Frangipani Bronzing Shimmer Oil When you want to get a nice glow, use this hydrating manoi oil for a quick bronzed look! Not a self tanner, and way healthier than the tanning beds, this oil will keep you looking your best.

6. Balm Shelter Medium Tinted Moisturizer Being outdoors, you have to prepare your skin for the sun’s rays! Although you may need more protection, reach for a makeup with a sunscreen built in. The Balm Shelter comes with an SPF 18 and a sheer coverage that will keep you looking fresh and not overly made-up!

8. Vita Coco Hydration is key! Make sure to pack something for when you are parched and need a quick fix. High in potassium and electrolytes, coconut water is  a great choice. We love the fresh taste of Vita Coco!

9. Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm Tube Lip Balm is an everyday essential!  Protecting your lips and applying balm is like second nature to most girls, so make sure to grab one you love. We always enjoy the strawberry flavor of Smith’s!

Use the ball chain packaging to make sure they stay in one place so you can easily grab one when you need it.
