You know when you manage to find those 3 hours in a week to finally go lay down on a beach with your book and/or your besties? You’re not the only one. Let’s make this the relaxing experience it should be, with lots of leaps into the water, summer reads and, why not, end-of-the-day prosecco.
DO: Listen to your favorite music
Nothing can give you a super relax treatment like your favorite tunes. Just remember…
DON’T: Blast your stereo
Earphones are there for a reason. A very good reason.
DO: Bring homemade drinks
Whether to add alcohol or not has to be decided based on how you want the rest of the day to go.
DON’T: Trust beach bars too much
They sometimes will sell you a very expensive Sex on the Beach that tastes like nothing, but at least it normally has that little umbrella thingy on top, which is nice.
You officially have the right to forget about your phone, apart from when you need to Instagram the awesome time you are having, of course.
DON’T: Destroy your phone
A few selfies might be fine and safe, but there is always that someone who managed to drop her/his phone in the water or lose it in the sand. Let that not be you.
DO: Protect your skin
Use the right products, and your skin will be very thankful in a few years.
DON’T: End up looking like a shrimp
I am pretty sure burnt skin doesn’t look as good with your new summer dress.
