Quincy Davis On Beach Beauty

It's already a little while since Quincy Davis visited the Vogue office to share her beach beauty tricks, but after hanging at the Swatch Girls Pro contest in our backyard the past couple days, and seeing so many burnt beach blondes, we thought it'd be good to share it again in case you missed the story. Enjoy!

When Quincy Davis arrived at the Vogue offices on a recent Wednesday afternoon, it was nearly impossible not to notice her quintessential blonde beach hair and tawny, poreless skin. Standing in stark contrast to the office set, the 19-year-old Volcom-sponsored surfer has built a life on her days in the sun.

A Montauk native who has been surfing since she was seven, Davis has learned a thing or two about making the look work for her. Days spent carving out lines on waves from Australia to Puerto Rico or hitting her favorite breaks in Hawaii and the Maldives may leave her little time for makeup, but they require a professional-level knowledge of hair and skin protection. Here, Davis sat down to talk to us about the best waterproof sunscreen, après-sun hair treatments, and the most energizing meal in the Hamptons.

You’re outdoors and on the water all day. What do you use to protect your skin?
I’m constantly in the sun, so I’m always trying to protect my skin as much as I can. When I’m surfing, I always wear Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream+ because it really stays on in the water. I’ve been using it for five years, so I trust it. I don’t wear makeup when I surf, but that sunscreen is a little tinted, which helps. When I’m out of the water, I like wearing Coola SPF 30 on my face, because it’s really soft on your skin, but isn’t too thick or greasy. It doesn’t feel like it’s blocking your pores.

What about skincare?
I’m always traveling on planes and being exposed to different climates, so I have to stay moisturized. I wash my face with Fresh Soy Face Cleanser because it’s gentle and use the Clarisonic. At the end of the day, I just want to get everything off, especially the sunscreen, and the Clarisonic takes care of that. I’m really into oils right now—I think they hydrate my skin the most. Colbert MD Illumino Face Oil works really well for me. I put it on after I wash my face to give my skin a good glow.

How does surfing and traveling affect your hair?
My hair gets fried from the sun and from being in different types of water. I’m always trying to restore moisture and keep it as healthy as I can. Before I go in the water, I put Moroccan oil at the tips of my hair and in the front because that’s the part that gets the most sun. Twice a week, I do the Kérastase Masque Elixir Ultime to soften my hair and make it more manageable, and after I shower, I always put in Bumble and Bumble’s Quenching Complex to hydrate it.

Do you get any salon treatments?
After being away for a few months, when I get back to Montauk I go to nearby AKF Salon and get a Pre Art clarifying treatment to strip all of the bad water out of my hair. It makes your hair a lot healthier. I’ve gotten a Keratin treatment a few times to restore protein. It helps tame my hair.

You’re so fresh-faced. Do you ever wear makeup?
I do wear makeup occasionally when I’m going out with the girls or out to dinner. I’m a fan of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because it has SPF, it moisturizes, and gives me an even complexion. I’m a big fan of natural-looking makeup, like NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer duo. For my eyes, I just discovered Blinc mascara, and I’m a really big fan of the way it volumizes and lengthens. My eyebrows get really light from the sun, so if I want to make them pop more, I love the Lancôme eyebrow pencil.

Being a professional athlete keeps you in great shape, but do you do anything aside from surfing to cross train?
My shoulders and arms get the most toned from surfing from all of the paddling. It’s a good thigh workout, too. But I like to change it up with running, cycling, and boxing. I get bored of the same thing.

What do you like most about surfing in the Hamptons?
It’s fun to be able to surf here with my family and closest friends. In the fall, we get a hurricane swell. The waves are better, and the crowd has usually left by then. But even this summer, there was a really fun day of barreling waves. My brother and I stayed out for hours.

Where is the best after-surf meal in Montauk?
I usually go to my brother’s restaurant, Happy Bowls, for an acai bowl. It’s the perfect re-energizing meal for me after a day at the beach.
