How to Live the Beach Lifestyle with Natural Ingredients
Summer is here and it is time to slow down to live the beach lifestyle. I live close to beach, by close I mean about 15 minutes. I wish I could live as close as I did before I had the baby, but priorities my have changed to focus on schools and space. Although I now live driving distance instead of walking from the beach, the beach life can be a choice, even if you don’t live near one.
Start by relaxing and having fun. That is what beach life is all about. This means it is time to slow down and drop your pace down to the beach pace so that you have time to enjoy being outdoors and nature. A daily walk in nature is where you can see beautiful things like flowers and soak up the sun and the fresh air to feel of the outdoors.
Walk the beach walk in a pair of flip flops. Embrace the informality of a beach town with light weight fabrics like linen and wear shorts or a skirt that do not bind. It is all about comfort and air on the beach.
Leave all the harsh smells and chemicals at home and embrace the natural smell of the beach. Of course, you do not want to go without deodorant, but you can grab Tom’s of Maine antiperspirant that only contains natural ingredients and comes unscented. Tom’s of Maine epitomizes the beach lifestyle as it makes it products with no artificial fragrance or preservatives and no animal ingredients or testing, ever. The deodorant that I buy for myself and my husband is long-lasting deodorant sticks using odor-fighting hops and mineral zinc to provide 24-hour odor protection.
I found the Tom’s of Maine deodorant at Whole Foods on a trip with the little munchkin. She loves the Whole Foods carts because they are perfect size for her.
Embrace the beach hair. If you cannot get beach hair from salt, wind and sun, you can fake the beach hair with hair products that have salt in them. The smell of the salt spray will also remind you of the beach and to relax.
Pick up a cool pair of sunglasses and apply sunscreen. The beach life is about protecting yourself from the sun.
Grabbing a good book is a great way to spend time. It also you to expand your mind while enjoying the outdoors at the beach or in your backyard. The beach life is enhanced by the reading of good book as it allows you to clear your head of your worries. Reading helps you day dream and thing about things outside of yourself.
