With scorching temperatures on the horizon, it’s time to hit the beach or pool to stay cool. Our favorite beach bag accessory is BlueFlower’s fractionated coconut oil. Its multipurpose use makes it a key staple for your beach or pool bag. Coconut oil has a natural SPF of about 6, so layer it on top of your sunscreen for an added boost of protection and moisture.
It’s time to say goodbye to dry and brittle hair this summer. Try coating your hair with coconut oil prior to getting in chlorine or salt water, as well as after you shower. It adds a layer of protection for those of us who highlight and color treat our hair. Let’s not forget to protect our lips too–with its natural SPF, you can use it as a moisturizing chapstick. Since our coconut oil is unscented, you can add a few drops of our lavender or peppermint oil for a scent boost, and an SPF boost. That’s right, lavender and peppermint oil also have a natural SPF of 4-6, and peppermint also helps repel bugs!
Staying hydrated is also a must. Throw one of our infusion water bottles into your bag for a flavorful hydration treat. Basil, raspberry, strawberry, and lemon juice are a great antioxidant & immunity combo, or try mixing cucumber and mint for a cool, refreshing taste. Added bonus: it’s an easy and healthy way to get kids drink water instead of juice boxes and sports drinks.
