Close your eyes. You're laying on the sand. You look to your left, and you see a girl with mascara streaming down her face. You look to your right, and you see someone with a full face of makeup, half-melted, the other half hanging on for dear life.

The beach and beauty products don't always mix. But sometimes it helps to pack a few of them—waterproof makeup included or not—alongside the current read in your beach bag. We talked to dermatologist Dr. Heidi Waldorf from Mount Sinai Hospital and Dr. Jessica Weiser of New York Dermatologists to find out what products you should be packing with you. Find them in the gallery below.

Sunscreen for your face
"Since hands will be sandy and salty, from beach and ocean water, bring sunscreen you can reapply without irritating the eyes," Dr. Heidi Waldorf says. "I like Colorescience Sunforgettable mineral powder sunscreen in the retractable brush and Headhunter face stick."

Colorescience, Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen Brush Broad Spectrum SPF 50, $57, available at Colorescience; Headhunter, SPF 45 Face Stick, $15, available at Headhunter.
