It is women’s nature to take care of their beauty, whether indoors or outdoors, they have to keep their routine in check consistently. To exude self-confidence whenever and wherever they would like to appear as the better version of themselves through various ways – a fabulous makeup look, a cute outfit, a matchy handbag or tote bag to go well with your style, or maybe getting a tan. Although the last one can be done by being under the Sun, there are certain precautions to take so as to not ruin the beauty they have been working hard on. No one wants to get sunburned while hoping to get that sexy beach tan.
Besides tanning, there are other items that women should bring to their holiday beach trip at Kota Kinabalu. Be it for the facial and body uses.
Here are beauty essentials you should bring when you are going to the beach:
Now, this is one of the most essential beauty products women should include in their beauty collection. Exposure to the sun is vital to your overall health and wellbeing, but at the same time, an uncontrollable amount of exposure can lead to damage as well. It is very important to wear sunscreen outdoors and indoors because too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight is dangerous as it can cause skin cancer, skin aging, eye damage and lower your body’s ability to fight off many ailments. These are the last things we need when spending our good times at the beach, so protect yourself! UV rays are the strongest between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., plan your beach schedule well about which time is the best to get that beautiful tan for your skin.
No matter what, having a lip balm by your side is a must to put in your essential bag. Lip balm helps to moisturize your lips and keep them from drying and flaking. Especially when you’re at a beach that is humid, sun damage is not exceptional when it comes to affecting your body. Prolonged exposure to the UV rays can lead to drying and cracking of your lips. Worst-case scenario, exposure to the radiation can also result in actinic keratoses (bumps on lips). Although it is not life-threatening, it is possible they can develop into cancerous form.
Use a lip balm that has a built-in SPF (at least SPF30) for both moisturizing and protection.
Getting that beach hair goal is one of the highlights when hanging out at the beach. Thanks to the saltwater in the air and in the water, your hair will get that nice volumizing textured look to pump up your already beautiful appearance!
However, if you wish to recreate that beach wave look without much help from the sea stylist, get yourself a hair spray to create that dreamy looking waves and keep it stay put without getting it fuzzy along your time at the beach.

Let’s face it, there are tons of alternatives you can use the stain for. You can double your lip stain as a blusher and eyeshadow besides your lip tint.
DIY Tinted Moisturizer
Hitting two birds in one stone! That’s what I like to call it. You only need your daily moisturizer and concealer. With just a small amount of each, mix them together and you get double the benefit – even tone complexion and moisturizes.
