Safe in the sun is more than skin deep, but starting with the skin is never a bad idea. Don’t step outside without your lotion, spray or brush-on SPF protection, and protect your eyes with a pair of sunglasses with UVA and UVB lenses. Keeping away from harmful rays doesn’t have to be dull; brighten up your hot weather wardrobe with fun – as well as protective – pieces like Nordstrom’s crocheted cover-up, or REI’s sassy straw hats. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and keep your beverages icy cold with a cheery insulated tote.
