When we think of pool days, we immediately think about throwing on that cute new swimsuit…and out we go! Sometimes, we can tend to forget about other major key essentials! I know I have…guilty!

Lately, I’ve not only been about the “what to wear” part of a pool day, but also about the “sun’s out, essentials out,” that it has become my pool-day routine!

While pink flamingo floats and fruity refreshments are another kind of pool essential, I’m talking more about three easy-breezy beauty essentials.

These are my top 3 beauty essentials for a pool day:

1. Sunscreen. Protecting the skin is the number one and utmost healthiest essential to include on a pool day (and any day!). I got to partner with Coppertone to try out its Whipped Sunscreen and am absolutely loving it! It glides on the skin easily and absorbs quickly. Major bonus – it has a refreshing citrus scent with soft floral base notes. This product feels clean, light, and it’s water resistant for 80 enjoy a good swim!

The Coppertone Whipped Sunscreen is available in SPF 30 and 50 – you can shop: here

2. Hat. I also find protecting the hair and scalp from the sun, to be super important. I love throwing on a stylish hat to shield the hair, scalp, and eyes! For me, what a hoodie is to rain, a cute straw hat is to sun. Protect..protect!

3. Read. Beauty is also brains. A pool day is the perfect time for me to catch up on a good read. I like to put my phone down, and pick up a solid book or magazine. It is the time to lounge and get lost in the pages.

I simply LOVE pool days! Especially, when I’ve got these three essentials by my side!
