Today, we’re featuring the summer lust list of Melissa Allen, otherwise known as “Miss Molly”
1) A fabulous Bikini
I think it is important to try and find a bikini with the right print and colours to match your skin tone. Don’t go overboard with accessories, but a great sun hat with a cute trim will add to your beach look and will add to your benefit by protecting your face from the harsh sun rays!
I recently purchased a fabulous bikini from Insight and a hat from Forever New. Sea Folly (Durban) is another great store to find amazing bikinis!
2) A good sun block
I have an olive skin tone but would still sit in the sun for hours on end trying to go darker. I realised how harsh the sun is and how much damage it can cause after hearing about a good friends mum who was diagnosed with skin cancer on her chest. If you are planning on spending a day in the sun then a good sun block with the highest protection is essential. And if you feel you are too pale to even bare your body in a bikini then go for a spray tan.
I highly recommend Roc sun block and if you live in the Durban area and are looking for a great place to go for a spray tan then Kusabana Spa in 9th Ave off Florida Rd is your place.
3) A great pair of flip flops
I would always ruin a nice and expensive pair of sandals by wearing them to the beach. They either end up with sand in the seams or full of sun block. If you want to wear pretty sandals to the beach then keep a great pair of comfy flip flops in your beach bag so you can do a swap when you get to the beach sand. Havaianas have the best flip flops (but I am sure you already know that!)
