3. Hair rope or headband
Everyone who heads out to a beach date remembers to bring a sun hat, but do you know how to style your hair if it's felling off? Under the blowing sea breeze and the scorching sun, it is really inconvenient to have long hair, so bring a few hair ropes and headbands.

Conditioners are vital to protecting your hair, but are often forgotten. When your hair gets tangled under the action of sea water, you can protect your hair from strain by spraying on conditioner. It is best to choose a conditioner with SPF to effectively resist the damage of the sun's rays on the hair.

6. Trash bag
Don't forget to bring a trash bag unless you plan to be near the trash can. Finding a convenient place to dispose of wrapping paper, wipes, napkins and more at the beach is not an easy task. On the other hand, the seaside is usually windy, and all kinds of plastic or paper scraps are easily blown into the ocean, which is extremely damaging to the environment. So next time you go to the beach, remember to bring a trash bag.

In an unfamiliar beach environment, it is wise to be prepared for the various pests that may appear. Mosquitoes, gadflies, wasps, and other pests are common around lakes, especially in the tropics, and with an insecticide spray, you can enjoy your beach trip in comfort.

8. After-sun repair cream
It is recommended to apply sunscreen every two hours when going to the beach, and apply it immediately after swimming or sweating. If you don’t apply it enough, you will be easily sunburned. At this point, you'll thank yourself for wearing an after-sun repair cream. Repair cream should be the first choice containing aloe vera ingredients.
