Beach Skin Care Guide 2019

I’ll be going to Boracay on May and I’ve decided to share with you guys a beach skin care guide. We all know that the sun is the biggest culprit into damaging one’s skin.

It’s not like we can just take it off the face of the earth when we want to. It’s imperative to know the best ways to deal with it.

Some of the tips that I’m going to give you are mostly from my dermatologist’s recommendations. Others are from my own research.

Beach Skin Care Guide 2019

I’m going to divide this guide into sections so that it’d be a lot easier for you. Please know that I have dry and sensitive skin with a bonus of being acne-prone.

Know your skin type for free.

Let’s start from top to bottom!

Hair Care


I know that this isn’t part of one’s skin but I’ve decided to include it because it will complete your bikini-babe look.


I recommend a good anti-dandruff shampoo because of its potent cleansing ingredients. Gallivanting under the sun for hours will inevitably harbor bacteria and what better way to clean it than with a trusty shampoo.

The cooling effect of menthol also alleviates the beach heat as well.

Leave-On Conditioner

When we are on a vacation, we tend to stay outside most of the time, rather than caged in a hotel room.

It’s very convenient to have something that we can reapply all throughout the day for our locks to maintain its healthy and shiny glow.

Skin Care

This will contain a lot of sub-categories because a beach skin care guide is always complicated.

Whoever said that looking pretty is as easy as 1-2-3 was seriously disturbed.



Please do not use any facial cleanser which peel and whiten. This increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Give whitening soaps, hydroquinone creams, and whitening scrubs a temporary break.

If you’re undecided, you can always use a micellar water.


My doctor told me to avoid soaps with triclosan if I’m going to stay under the sun for an extended amount of time. Triclosan + Sun = Skin darkening.

Look for soaps that are antibacterial and antifungal like sulfur soaps. You’ll never know what skin issue you’d end up with especially if you will join a lot of beach activities.

Loofah or Wash Cloth

I know that it’s bad to exfoliate while on a beach holiday. However, you can control the abrasion level when utilizing these tools unlike with scrubs.

My shower is incomplete without exfoliation to be honest.

Hat, Rash Guard, and Sunglasses


If you want to maintain your fair skin, I highly suggest for you to wear all of these. However, if you want to have a gorgeous tan, you can omit the 2nd option.

Lotion and Moisturizer before Sleeping

As long as both products don’t contain whitening and exfoliating ingredients, you can use them to have a good night’s sleep.

Lip Balm with SPF

Our lips are part of the skin so don’t neglect it as well.

Finally, a beach skin care guide is incomplete without…



A broad-spectrum and gel-based sunscreen is the best for the beach. Humidity and oils don’t go hand-in-hand.

Gels are skin-friendlier and give a cooling effect.

If you don’t want to feel icky, go for it.

Look for a product with a high SPF, seriously, the higher the better.

PS: Forget about skin whitening products 3 days before your holiday. Stop taking isotretinoin, retinols, niacinamide, alpha-arbutin, and everything that exfoliates and makes your skin sensitive 3 days before your beach trip as well.
