Summer is here, which means it is time for one of our favorite parts of summer: Beach days! Days spent at the beach are filled with sun, sand, and fun, but your beach day is only as amazing as the the items you bring along with you. Sunscreen? Check. Cover up? Check. Sunglasses? Check… You’re forgetting something, aren’t you?
Our Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio frequents the beach more than anyone we know, so it is no surprise she knows exactly what essentials are needed to have the best beach day ever. From stylish bikinis to protective sunscreen, see below for a list of what’s in Alessandra’s beach bag!
“Being in a swimsuit is always when I have the most fun. I grew up in swimsuits in Brazil. They give that sensation of freedom, freedom that no other clothes can give you. Usually you’re surrounded by nature, by the beach rolling in the sand, suntanning, having fun with your friends, or for me, playing with my kids and jumping in the pool or spending a memorable beach day.”
“It’s no secret that I love being in the sun so I always make sure to wear SPF to prevent wrinkles!”
“Beautycounter’s Lip Conditioner is very moisturizing, and I like it’s refreshing peppermint taste.”
“For beauty, I keep it very minimal with a little creamy blush. I really like Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Stick. There’s a pink one and a peach shimmer that I like to mix together. That’s my go-to, and I can even put it on my lips, if I want, or a little on my eyes as a creamy shadow with shimmer.”
“I’ve always loved body art, I wear it all summer in Brazil and across Europe, and to music festivals—whenever my skin is exposed, I want something fun on my body. I also like to wear them underneath the hair, and I love wearing the feathers falling down my back!”
“I love sunglasses, I have all shapes and colors.”
“You can’t go to the beach without one. I love fun prints that really stand out.”
“Sun protection is key! I make sure I always wear a big hat at the beach.”
“An easy pair of slip-ons for when you’re not busy playing the sand! Shop my favorites below.”
“It can get chilly when the sun’s not out or if you stay past sunset so it’s nice to keep a cover-up in your bag.”
“I bring my Instax camera with me everywhere. I love taking shots of my kids. And the photos print right away!”
