It's summer, which for many means fun and frolic at the beach. But for the braver and bolder, beach time means a liberating romp au naturel
. Hold on to your bikinis, folks; we're talking about nude beaches.
On the surface, a nude beach getaway seems pretty simple: Get in car, drive to beach, tear off clothes and model birthday suit. But there's an unwritten etiquette that will at once enhance your nude beach experience and keep you from faux pas-ing your way through the day.
Sit back as we reveal the top five tips for baring it all at the beach:
- Apply sunscreen liberally
Maybe you've gotten yourself a base tan at your local tanning salon. Maybe you're glowing bronze from a couple of sessions on your backyard patio. But chances are pretty good there are certain parts of your bod that haven't spent as much time in the sun as others. In other words, make sure that you use lots of sunscreen.
- Protect your eyes
Aside from the fact you don't want to singe your retinas, a dark pair of shades will allow you to scope out sun-drenched hotties without getting busted. Note: Opaque eyewear allows you to scout the landscape without being rude — but that doesn't mean you should flat-out stare.
- Drink a lot of water
Dehydration is a major issue, especially when every single one of your pores is exposed.
- Don't eat too much
Let's face it — you're not at your most attractive when you're shoving a handful of cheese curls down your gullet. And doing it naked ... well, that's just plain ugly.
- Make eye contact
Looking into somebody's eyes is cool. Gawking at someone is not.
