A day at the beach can leave you happy, tired, and tan. But it can also leave your skin dry and in need of some moisture. So it's important to shower ASAP with the best body wash after the beach. That way, your skin can stay soft, supple, and smooth. I mean, let's face it: As relaxing as it can be laying out under the sun or floating in the sea, the salt and rays do nothing in the way of keeping your skin hydrated. In fact, both of these factors actually dry out your skin, and can leave it feeling tight and itchy.
So when you return home to wash off all of the salt and sand, using a traditional body wash or soap may not be your best bet. Because soaps are inherently drying, if your skin is already dry from the beach, a basic body wash may only exacerbate the problem. So you're putting moisture back into your skin instead of stripping it even more, make sure to use a hydrating cleanser after a day in the sun. Need some inspo? Here are 10 of the best body washes to use after a day at the beach.
