Summer is in full swing, which calls for endless trips to the beach. While the seasonal rite of passage brings essentials like your favorite swimsuit, a beach towel and a chair to mind, there's one item that makes those sand-filled days fully complete. A beach beauty bag.

While beauty brands have made great advancements with summer makeup, like sweatproof foundation and waterproof mascara, not all products are created equal or beach-friendly. Whether you enjoy swimming for hours or enjoy staying dry and basking in the sun for a balanced tan, the day is sure to require items that will benefit your skin without risking enjoyment. If the beach is just one stop out of many, you're going to need to freshen up with products like deodorant and fragrances. If you're into makeup, you'll need options for lightweight coverage that will keep your skin hydrated and glowing.

Below, we've curated an edit of beauty products you'll want to secure ahead of your next beach day.
