Summertime is all about simplicity. A stylish yet comfortable wardrobe, a groomed beard, and sun protection will keep you cool when the temperatures soar. If you’re looking forward to getting lots of outdoor time in, here are 7 essentials that’ll see you through.
Long summer days are the best: lying out on the beach without a care in the world, catching some waves before heading to a pool party. But long days also mean lots of time to sweat up a gross, sticky mess. Stay fresh no matter what you have planned by spritzing on some Zeus Verbena Lime Natural Deodorant Spray. The deodorant absorbs quickly to annihilate odors while imparting our refreshing Verbena Lime scent.
Tip: Whether you need a little extra odor control or just like the scent, you can use our Deodorant Spray as a body spray. The safflower oil base is a great post-sun moisturizer, hydrating dry skin while encouraging cellular regeneration.
Boasting a quick-drying material, Flint and Tinder Breaker Trunks transition seamlessly from the beach to the bar. Plus, these trunks meet the most important requirement for summer threads: comfort. Stretch polyester is woven in a diamond weave for ample stretch on the waistband and throughout.
Made locally in Southern California, it’s no wonder these trunks are a combination of style and ease.
You pamper your beard. But what about the hair elsewhere? The hair on top of your head takes the worst beating come summertime because it directly faces the sun. That’s where hair sunscreen comes into play. Clarins keeps things simple with its hybrid Sunscreen Care Oil Spray SPF 30 for Skin and Hair.
It’s a lightweight oil that makes your hair water resistant – both to the waves and to your own sweat. Antioxidants including vitamin E and sunflower seed oil combat free radicals, and aloe vera reduces inflammation. This spray will also protect your scalp from sun damage. Remember to spray some on your face for quick and easy sun protection.
Tip: You can also use this spray on your beard! Spritz a small amount to shield your facial hair from sun, salt, and chlorine.
Our most travel-ready brush, the Zeus Pear Wood Boar Bristle Pocket Brush comes compact for your convenience, measuring just 3.5 inches long. You can just as easily throw it into your dopp kit as your pocket for touch ups. Made with staggered, extra firm bristles, this brush works for all beard lengths. Apply a few drops of beard oil, distribute it evenly through your beard with the pocket brush, and you’re set.
Sorry, but that $12 pair of off-brand sunglasses you bought on a whim while rushing out of the convenience store isn’t going to cut it anymore. We suggest in investing in a quality pair of shades; the right pair can enhance your face shape and make your beard look even more badass.
The Blair sunglasses are designed by Pacifico Optical, a brand based out of Bondi Beach, Australia. Known for its relaxed coastal lifestyle, Bondi Beach greatly influences the look of these sunglasses, with the polarized brown lenses being inspired by timber grain. An anti-reflective coating on each lens reduces glare, while the exterior is coated to prevent scratches. In other words, it’ll stand up to being tossed around on your journeys.
The classic D frame has mildly angular lines that add definition to round face shapes but won’t overwhelm slimmer face shapes.
When it’s 90 degrees out and you’ve got miles of pavement staring you in the face, the last thing you want to do is throw on a stuffy leather jacket. That’s why Iron & Resin made the Rambler Vest. Constructed of 100% Cotton Cone Miles Denim and Martexin Waxed canvas, this vest is lightweight and breathable enough to be worn on a hot day. Side hand pockets and flap pockets offer storage space for the essentials.
Formulated to work in the most extreme conditions, Jack Black Oil-Free Sun Guard Sunscreen is a lotion and hardworking sunscreen in one. Water-resistant and sweat-resistant, this sunscreen won’t budge in water, nor will it drip into your eyes. Free of synthetic fragrance, colorant, and alcohol, Jack Black’s sunscreen is gentle enough for all skin types and you need not worry about dreaded sunscreen sting. Plus, because it’s oil-free, it won’t clog your pores or leave a sticky residue – a major pro for those of us with troublesome skin.
