IT’S A WASH Clogged pores can lead to all kinds of problems. So rinse away sweat, sunscreen, makeup and anything else you don’t want left behind withThe Wash from Jeffrey James Botanicals ($23).

SCENTS OF THE SEA Even if you weren’t able to spend the day by the water, Tommy Bahama’s St. Kitts fragrance for men ($65) can help you smell like you did. A blend of kaffir lime, mandarin and tropical starfruit paired with cedarwood and sea salt evokes the scent of a sea breeze, while driftwood, ambergris and musk bring to mind an afternoon of sunning on the namesake island’s beaches.

TURN UP THE VOLUME If your tresses are in need of a little more oomph, new products from Alterna Haircare featuring a marine plumping complex can help give them a boost.

Or spray the Caviar Anti-aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist ($28) on towel-dried hair to help thicken and strengthen strands while also lifting them off the scalp.
