Are you

glass?

I have a beach body, though I'm not alive

Glass is made from sand, hence it's "body" is made from what beaches are made of.

When natural I am electric

The temperature needed to create glass from sand is so high it is usually not found in nature - unless sand is struck by lightning.

Nowadays, all around the world I thrive

Glass can be found pretty much everywhere these days, but man did not always have the technology required to produce glass.

I can be thin or sometimes thick

Glass can be produced in various thicknesses.

I am a gatekeeper as I decide what passes and what gets sent back

Glass filters light. Colored glass can reject certain wavelengths of light. Coated glass can act as a mirror and reflect all light.

Infinite reuse is one of my prides

Glass can easily be melted down and reformed into another glass object.

What am I? Come on Stack!

I'm guessing this is not a "clue" to be solved, but just a way to finish the rhyme? Thanks to DarioOO - could be a stack of glasses.

The atmosphere isn't alive, but it's color can look like a "beach body" during the afternoon sunset.

The atmosphere is thick in some places, and thin in others.
