Guest Post: 7 Summer Must-Haves by Mommy Posh

Summer is upon us and it's time to get into gear! With our beach bodies in check, we must not forget the basic necessities needed when heading out during the rays of sunshine. Here are just a few must-haves when escaping the winter blues.

1. SUNSCREEN: If anything, this is the most important tip needed this summer (and year round). Whether you are heading to the beach, enjoying a picnic or out to lunch with the gals, ensure you use a good sunblock lotion, it will keep your youthful glow and prevent your skin from those harmful rays!

2. CLEANSING, TONING, MOISTURIZING: These are three little, but essential treatments your skin requires each and everyday, but most importantly during the summer. Cleansing your skin removes dead cells and impurities, toning tightens the skin and moisturizing makes your skin soft and supple. Make sure you use an oil-free moisturizer.

3. A COVER UP: An umbrella or a big rimmed hat is indeed a must-have in your beach bag. Carrying an umbrella/hat will help you safeguard your hair, skin and prevent your body from de-hydration. You could pick a fancy one and also try and match it with your attire.

4. ANTI-FRIZZ SERUM FOR HAIR: Split ends and unruly hair are common during the summer. To keep your hair at at bay, ensure you use a good shampoo, conditioner and most of all an anti-frizz serum, to keep your hair healthy, shiny and stylish!

5. WATER PROOF MAKE-UP: Of course you don’t want your mascara running down your cheek along with your sweat! Invest in some good water-proof mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick.

6. STAY HYDRATED: Make sure you boost your liquid intake during summer. If you are traveling, carry a bottle of water. Hydration also prevents skin from drying up.

7. LOOSE CLOTHES: Tank tops, maxi dresses and capris are the ideal must haves in your closet and don't forget to pair it with cute sandals and shades...

Now your ready...So, head on out and enjoy summer!
