Sunscreen For Body

This paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free broad-spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen will keep every inch of you covered.

Bright Lipstick

For a quick beach-to-lunch transition, pull hair into a topknot and add a bold orange lipstick. We love Ilia's synthetic fragrance and paraben-free formula, which still delivers bold color.

Sunscreen For Face

We live for Jessica Alba's good-for-you beauty products like this natural, unscented, broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen, which works on faces, bodies and babies alike.

Fun Nail Polish

As far as 5-free nail polish brands go, RGB is one of our favorites. Fun fact: a fresh manicure will protect your nails from the harmful rays, even if the polish doesn't boast added sunscreen.

Sunscreen For Lips

Apply this organic, food-grade lip balm after eating and drinking for extra protection and a gorgeous, selfie-worthy sheen.

Cleansing Wipes

Wipe away salt, sand and sticky beach food debris before reapplying sunscreen with these cooling, 99% natural cleansing wipes.

Sunscreen For Hair

Minimize color fading, damage and dryness with this water-resistant UV-defense mist that's made from natural oils and extracts.

Stylish Extras

These fun, eco add-ons are perfect for a day at the beach. Pair with a basic black bikini and a great summer read.
