Summer List and Brands we Love
Summer is officially here Ladies! Bring on the long days and the vacays! While we can’t wait to get out in the sun, there are certain essentials we wouldn’t want to spend this hot season without. Take a look at our top ten must haves for summer filled with brands we love!
1. Self Tanner
There’s no doubt we love to be tan. But sometimes lying by the pool isn’t always practical nor is it the best for our skin. Luckily self tanner creates a great alternative to providing a natural glow without harshly exposing ourselves to the sun. While we recommend (insert tanner), there’s a variety of self-tanners out there waiting for you to try this year!
As the sun emits harmful UV rays even on the most cloudy day, it makes sense why we think sunscreen is a summertime must! While we recommend sticking to a sunblock that has broad spectrum protection, an SPF above 30, and one that is water resistant, there are plenty of options out there that will fit your specific needs! Remembering to lather up each time you go outside may not be easy, but your skin will definitely thank you for it.
3. Summer Shorts
The summer demands shorts, and a good pair at that. Our recommendation? Lululemons. Not only are they stylish for the gym, but they are high quality summer gear. Being functional, breathable, and super cute all at the same time, Lululemon shorts are the perfect way to take on the summer in comfort and style.
4. Dry Shampoo
5. Water Bottle
There may be nothing more important than staying hydrated during the summer and that’s why we’ve included a water bottle in our list of essentials. While it may be convenient to pick up a pack of plastic bottles at the supermarket, having a reusable water bottle is far more sustainable and of greater value to you! Although we recommend buying a Hydroflask to keep your water ice cold in the heat of the day, there are several alternative insulated bottles on the market for you to choose from.
Deodorant is key in the summertime! But that doesn’t mean you need to go out of your way to find one that works better at this time of year. Dove deodorant is always our go-to brand. It’s gentle yet powerful, providing lasting protection that gets you through even the hottest of days!
Dry lips in the summer are hard to avoid, so having a reliable chapstick on hand is super important! We recommend a chapstick like Maybelline with a tint to give you well-hydrated lips with a hint of color. Try Baby Lips for full moisture and a variety of colors to choose from!
What’s more perfect than a hat in the summer? Probably a hat that has your favorite brand on it ;) Not only does a hat in the summer protect you from the sun, but it also lets you sneak by without having to do a thing to your hair. If you don’t already have a hat for the summer, we’ve got you covered! You can get one of our favorites here: https://www.flexitpink.com/collections/accessories.

Whether it’s for casual use, a day at the gym, or a summertime hike, our FIP backpack is your ideal adventure partner. You can order yours today just in time for your next summer outing!

If you are looking for something new and healthy, definitely considering giving these brands and products a try for light and simple summertime pick me ups!
