We’ve all been there. No one likes to be out on a beautiful summer day looking great, and the “melt” begins… You just know your full face of makeup is looking less than the flawless way it looked when you spent all that time getting it right! lol

Face moisturizers are a must, I have been using this moisturizer under my makeup for years now, and I love it. It soaks in completely and quickly, so I can put it on and immediately begin putting on my makeup.
Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion SPF 30 is my go-to for a great under makeup and/or everyday moisturizer with SPF:

The heat of the sun and humid weather plus the salt and chlorine from the beach or the pool can make your hair limp, lifeless, and dry.

A simple trick is to use a texturing or volumizing spray like Boldify Hair Thickening Spray.

Yes Dian, excellent reminder.
The UV patch is a must-have and the heart shaped is gorgeous, even if you leave it on too long under the sun it will draw a nice heart on your skin.
Besides all the summer care products you mentioned, I would also put an unbreakable pocket mirror, as trying to put waterproof eye liner without a mirror can be tricky (I know!).
That’s a good one, thanks!
