It feels like we started summer awhile ago, but now that we've OFFICIALLY kicked it off, it's important to make sure you have everything you need for fun in the sun. (And protection from those rays).
ZICO always makes sure I'm well-equipped for the coming season. I ALWAYS like to have coconut water on-hand for that extra hydration on-the-go, or let's be real, for Sunday mornings. The chocolate flavor will always be my favorite (it tastes like the milk in the bowl after cocoa puffs), but you can't go wrong with their orange or watermelon-raspberry flavors either.
My absolute favorite new sunscreen is COOLA. I only use the spray, which makes it super easy to apply. And the best part, it comes so many fun summer "flavors". My favorite is Piña Colada ;)
PRO TIPS: (in case you didn't hear it enough from your mother): Make sure your face is fully protected, either with high SPF, or a sunhat, like this one from Joie. A fun beach towel is a must (I really want a round one, or this "fun" one from ban.do). And of course, don't forget your sunnies, sandals, and a big tote to carry it all in.
