Posted on

Not only does Gwyneth Paltrow know how to turn heads in her itsy bitsy bikinis, but she’s a pro when it comes to knowing what to bring with her to the beach, too. The actress shares all of her summer favorites — a mix of old-school picks and new travel-ready finds — in her most recent GOOP newsletter.

From classically tailored shorts for men and women from Orlebar Brown (“They are both wearable for everyday and can just as easily be used as swimsuits,” she says), to versatile Turkish towels and sun-proof swimwear, she fills readers in on all of her warm-weather essentials.

As for summer beauty products, she’s all about miracle multi-tasking finds that can easily be packed in a beach tote or carry-on, like Adara, a travel-size pure organic coconut oil that works as a gentle makeup remover, moisturizer and hair conditioning treatment.

And since she needs to keep her skin in glowing condition year-round, the actress doesn’t forget to toss in her Clarisonic Mia to combat the harsh effects of summer sun. “I’ve been obsessed with mine ever since I started using it,” she says of the electronic facial brush. “I’ve seen a real difference on my own skin.” Tell us: What are your beach essentials?
