Summer Splash: Poolside Products

Stocking your beach bag with the right products to keep you looking fab is just as important as having the latest issue of InStyle with you while you soak in those rays. Living in the state with the most sunny days (love it!) I have found out some of the best products to primp with by the pool. From your head to your hair- you're gonna wanna fill your straw tote with these. Here are some products must haves if you plan on lounging on the beaches or just hanging out in your backyard pool.
Lauren and Audrina know the importance of products when laying out

These are my must haves when I am packing my bag to head to my friends pool, spending a day out on our boat at the lake, or putting together my suitcase for a beach vaca. If there's a water and sun combo then these products are never too far away!

I found out about this awesome product a super long time ago and have been hooked ever since! It is absolutely amazing! Before the days of limited liquids on planes I would stash this in my carry on and spray on the plane to keep my face moisturized and fresh. It is great for anytime, but where it is really awesome is those super hot days when you feel your face getting all dry and crackly. Simply pull out this bad boy and instant refreshment! If you keep it in your fridge or cooler and then spray it on it feels even that much more refreshing! It revitalizes sunburned or chapped skin at the end of a long day of sun worshipping and one or two sprays will remove chlorine, perspiration or salt from your face and body. This is a definite must have for the summer beach bag!

Now I know this is technically not for right by the pool but I had to include it because of it's over-all awesomeness! This lotion is by far the best after sun aloe vera based product I have used. It is great, especially if you (opps) get too much sun. It helps prevent that nasty peeling effect before it begins! It is really thick and takes some time to soak in, but the moisture will stay with you for a long time. It smells great and includes aloe vera but also Macadamia nut oil and other all natural ingredients to help prolong your tan or jut keep that summer skin quenched! 

This is the updated version of the Redkin Color Extend Leave Sun Sparkling Sheild Leave in Smoother, which I loved! This new version does the same great job as it's older version, just without the shine. It protects hair from the harmful UV rays, as well as conditiones and nourishes your hair while you are in the sun. This product is the next best thing to a hat for you hair when spending time but the pool. Another major plus is it smells good and does not make your hair too greasy!

This sunscreen stick is awesome! It goes on easy and stays on all day. I use this product for those small places that I know gotta have SPF all day like my nose, lips, and ears. I always had a hard time keeping my nose and lips from getting burned when I was in the sun all day until I started using this stick. Its so easy to apply that I use it anytime I am going out in the sun. It's super small and can easily be tossed in a purse for on the go sun protection! Also, added bonus- it's a stick so there is no need to worry about leakage all over your stuff!
