Beach Bag Essentials


What's in your beach bag? By Mercedes Sanchez

blue beach bag There aren't many beaches in New York City, but I am already prepping my beach bag for my trip to the Dominican Republic.

And as much as I'm looking forward to relaxing, I always get worried about overusing products in the summer. Because of my sensitive skin, less is more, and that's exactly how I try to pack my beach bag.

Take a look at my list of must-haves below:

*A bright blue or pink straw beach bag

*Chic long beach towel

*A lightweight moisturizer with SPF, like the Vital Vitamin Day Cream with SPF 15 by Simple Skincare.

*Oversized beach hat


*A good book or tabloid magazine

*Simple's Refreshing Facial Wash Gel to remove all the products before the ride back home (or the walk back to the hotel room)
