Check out our list of picks that do double- and triple-duty for you during your travels.

The beach:

The beaches of Miami, Florida, have a lot to offer, from crystal clear water and swanky resorts to four-star restaurants and nonstop nightlife. Ensure you don't end up looking like some lifelong Floridians who have foregone sunscreen. Make sure you wear sun protection daily and always choose a faux tan!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Sun Indulgence Lotion for Face SPF 30

Take along:

For a true beauty no-brainer, look no further than Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Sun Indulgence Lotion for Face SPF 30. You can bronze your complexion while also protecting it from those potentially harmful UVA and UVB rays. Remember: A = aging and B = burning when it comes to good ole' sunshine.

The beach:

The semicircular shape of the Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia, Greece, is just the first of its many unique characteristics. White sand and sheer cliffs surround glorious turquoise water. It has made "top 10 beaches of the world" lists and it's ideal to take the time to see the spectacular view from above.

Bobbi Brown Shimmering Fragrance Oil

Take along:

Bobbi Brown Shimmering Fragrance Oil blends the luscious notes of her famous Beach fragrance (sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin) with a lightweight oil, but the fun doesn't stop there! Behold the tiny shimmer particles that grace your skin for a subtle and sophisticated sparkle. Image your confidence when you hit the beachy hot spots smelling luscious, with silky skin that's glistening and gloriously hydrated.

The beach:

The tropics of Waimea Bay in Oahu, Hawaii, are calling your name if you are a fan of big waves! November to February brings all the best big wave surfers to the city for camaraderie and competition. The waves actually die down in the summer months making the water good for swimming. There can still be strong currents though, so proceed with caution.

Schick Intuition Tropical Splash

Take along:

The Schick Intuition Tropical Splash, a 2-in-1 razor that contains aloe and shea butter, provides the convenience of both a shave and a moisturizing experience, making it the simplest way to smooth your skin. Skip the after-shower moisturizer and save room in your suitcase! Go ahead, pack another pretty dress or pair of sandals.

The beach:

The Outer Banks of North Carolina offers the beautiful, natural beaches of Cape Hatteras, a site you really must see in your lifetime. Windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving, along with horseback riding on the beach make for vacation memories you won't soon forget. The sand dunes, forest and marshland all coexist in harmony in this idyllic North Carolina gem.

Three Custom Color Specialists Lip & Cheek Stain

Take along:

Talk about a "desert island" beauty product: Three Custom Color Specialists Lip & Cheek Stain gives a dewy, fresh look that just won't quit and helps lighten up your makeup bag. Use it on your cheeks to get a sexy flush and on lips for a touch of color or layer it for more emphasis. With hues for warm and cool complexions, you can certainly find a shade that will light up your pretty face.

The beach:

San Diego, California, boasts some of the country's best weather, and they also have some of the most gorgeous beaches as well. The Travel Channel's annual top 10 survey ranked Coronado Beach one of America's best. Surfing and body boarding are popular past times, as is having a relaxing drink on the boardwalk near Central Beach.

Keratin Complex Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift PowderTake along:

Keratin Complex Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder is available in blonde, brunette and neutral shades, making it a must have for home and travel! The easy-to-use brush allows you to apply the product only where you need it and cuts down on messes. Great for days when you want to rock a high ponytail or chic loose chignon as it helps to provide texture while soaking up excess scalp oil. Who wants to waste time washing your hair when you are traveling? It's also great to add volume to just washed hair; sprinkle a little at the crown and rub in with fingers for extra bounce.

Don't waste precious time on your beach vacation fussing with numerous beauty items. One of the nicest things about a beach-related trip is the simplicity and break from your normal routine, so grab a few of these multitasking beauty products and call it a (beachy) day.
