2. Maximize your tan. Postpone a shower until at least 6 hours after you've been in the sun to give your tan time to fully develop. It makes a huge difference.
3. Powerade Zero... the zero calorie sports drink. Carbonated drinks make you feel full and not exactly bikini-ready. This drink is sooo good- try the blue and the pink ones.
4. SPF 30 on questionable moles or freckles. This always alleviates my worries about getting skin cancer. I just put a dot of spf-30 sunscreen on the freckles that freak me out.
5. Don't bring your laptop to the beach. I was at Jamestown beach on friday afternoon and I saw a few students attempting to type papers on their laptops. You're basically asking to ruin your computer. Sand and computer keyboards don't mix. Take a day off! Enjoy the beach! "Purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka".
