Spending time near the water would be considered a perfect day by most. For those with sensitive skin, frolicking by the shore is no day at the beach.

Wet sand stuck to your body can cause bothersome rashes that are irritating and itchy. To avoid that uncomfortable feeling, don’t forget to pack baby powder before your next adventure. Baby powder works as a drying agent, ridding the grit of moisture and making it easy to remove from your skin without being harsh or abrasive. Simply “wash” the area of your body covered in sand with baby powder as if it were soap, and it should come right off.

If you’re trying to be eco-friendly, consider using products made with cornstarch as an alternative. This hack is also helpful to avoid taking the beach home with you in your car or ice cooler, making baby powder as essential as sunscreen and floaties!
