Sexy Cabana Gear: 10 Swim Wear Accessories that Make You Shine (Guest Post by Cindy Prosser)

Sexy Cabana Gear: 10 Swim Wear Accessories that Make You Shine

After you've found that perfect suit…the one that makes you feel young and radiant and ready to hit the beach – well, then comes the time to find the perfect accessories and skin care products to go with it. And why not? Every gal knows you can never have too many of either of those things.

Whether you're looking for a beach tote, beauty product, or other type of accessory, this article is for you. Listen up, because we've got a list of the top 10 swimwear accessories that will make you shine during this beach season:

Beach Essential #1: Sunblock
First and foremost, let's make sure your beautiful skin is taken care of. No matter how long you plan to stay in the sun, buy a sunblock with an SPF rating of 40 or higher. Apply it at least 20 minutes before getting wet…and don't forget to reapply every couple hours throughout the day.

Beach Essential #2: SPF lip shine
Don't forget lip gloss when heading out to the beach…your pretty pucker will thank you later. Choose a gloss with at least a 15 SPF rating to give your lips a touch of color and help nourish dry lips during a long day near the water.

Beach Essential #3: Protein bar
Many times, pools and beaches only sell snacks that are high in fat or sugar content. Instead, be sure to throw a couple protein bars in your beach tote for a healthy snack that can keep you going throughout the day.

Beach Essential #4: Sarong
A sarong is not only a stylish addition to your swimsuit, but can also help you hide problem areas and is just a nice thing to have if you plan to walk around during the day. Choose a sarong made of light material that you can drape around your waist and wear comfortably throughout the day.

Beach Essential #5: Body spray
Keep yourself smelling great throughout the day by bringing along a pocket-sized body spray. It'll leave you smelling fresh and feeling good.

Beach Essential #6: Sun dress
You never know when your day at the beach will turn into a night on the town. For cases like this, be sure to have a lightweight sundress that you can throw on over your suit and look great for a night out with girlfriends.

Beach Essential #7: Self-tanning mist
Give your body a little extra color and shine with self-tanning mist. For best results, spray a light coat on the inside of your arm and a full coat along the outside. It'll give your skin a stunning tone and an illusion of leanness.

Beach Essential #8: Flip-flops
No one likes getting sand in their shoes – so be sure to bring along a pair of cute flip-flops. They're easy to stow in a beach bag and can be slipped on at a moment's notice. And, if you don't want to spend a lot, head to Target or Old Navy where you can usually pick up a pair for just a few dollars.

Beach Essential #9: Hair pick and revitalizing spray
Your skin isn't the only thing that can get scorched by the sun, so be sure to pick up a small bottle of revitalizing hair mist. You can find this in several brands at your favorite department store. After combing out your hair, spray on the lightweight mist to hydrate your hair and give it a stunning sheen.

Beach Essential #10: Beach tote
With all of these must-have accessories, you better have a stylish place to put them! Don't drag your purse to the beach – instead, buy a bold patterned tote with lots of pockets to store your money and cosmetics…and make sure it has enough room to stow a towel.

Next time you head out to the beach, don't leave home without these 10 beach accessories! They can help make for a great day out in the sun.
