PHOENIX -- If you, like many Phoenicians, are heading to the beach this summer, you want to make sure you're prepared.

Lifestyle expert Valery Lodato shared some of her favorite beach finds with 3TV's Kaley O'Kelley.

Xen Tan
If you want a head-start on tanning this bathing suit season, you'll love this. Des-TAN-ation Towel is an innovative, all-in-one self-tan towel delivering a gorgeous deep tan. This tan towel is a real towel that holds two full ounces of product to tan your face, hands, feet and back while gently exfoliating as you apply. Unlike most self-tanners, Des-TAN-ation Tan Towel has a yummy tropical scent.

Heading to the beach? BeachBUB is an easy-to-use beach umbrella base that's portable and fits right into your beach bag. Just lay the BUB in the sand, place your umbrella pole through the BUB's reinforced hole, fill the BUB with sand, attach the wings to the collar and voila, your beach umbrella is anchored down safely. When you're ready to head inside, just dump the sand, fold the BUB up and pop it right back into your beach bag.
Most bikinis weren't made with the active woman in mind. NAYAD custom swimwear was! NAYAD has tons of options from tanks to swim skirts and shorts and can also be used for exercise - like yoga and tennis. NAYAD is "made to measure" -- you simply enter your measurements when you place your order. Your measurements and design choices give you an individual NAYAD suit, made just for you.
Take the guesswork out of "what should I pack for my beach trip" with Beach Glam. lets you select a beach bag, sun hat and coverup and then, by bundling them into one purchase, you can actually save money.

Simple Sarongs
A sarong/towel/cover-up all in one! Simple Sarongs fuse fashion and function, marrying a comfy beach towel with a versatile and easy-to-wear sarong that buttons to stay put. It's the perfect solution for active women and Moms when getting in and out of the water and one size fits nearly all (XS-XL). 

Terrific Towels
Forget what you know about towelsbecause- this one is truly revolutionary! Vertty towels are unique because they're huge and they're shaped in a way that mirrors sunbathing - not a basic rectangle. Plus, they actually dry faster because of their cotton-synthetic blend and they have a convenient sewn-in waterproof pouch to stash valuables while you take a dip. They come in a rainbow of daring colors, taking your basic boring towels to the next level.
