We all know it’s important to protect your body from the powerful rays of the sun, but we still want to enjoy our summer time in the beautiful outdoors. I went on the hunt and found the latest products you need to know about to avoid getting a sunburn. Watch the video of my segment on Real Milwaukee, then shop my finds below.
1 | Hats Off to Summer: Barbara Cobb Sunhats are loaded with personality! They’re unique, personalized and come in a wide variety of fabrics and designs. Plus, they come in sizes for babies and kids. Design your own starting at $150.
2 | Beach Hair, Don’t Care: Get beachy, wavy hair with This Is A Sea Salt Spray by Davines – and, it smells AH-mazing!!
3 | Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen: This easy-to-apply sunscreen (it brushes on – so cool!) makes your skin look radiant, while it provides SPF 50 UVA/UVB protection alone or over makeup. I don’t leave home without it in my purse for on-the-go use.
4 | Sunshine Daze: Whether lounging at the beach or enjoying a day of water sports, the Sunshine Daze Supergoop! Tote is filled with conveniently-sized UV protection suncare goodies that offer awesome sun protection. And, the bag is so darn cute. Summer. Must-Have.
5 | Perk Up! Lip & Cheek Treat: This multi-tasker from Supergoop! takes you from spin to street in seconds! The little compact does double-duty — it’s vitamin-enriched, SPF 40 and a universal, buildable shade for the perfect post-workout flush.
6 | The Chic Cover-Up: A versatile beach tunic that looks great at home, on the beach or cruising around town is worth its weight in gold. I love Athleta’s Herringbone Kimssa Tunic for after water fun, or choose a sleek-fitting rash guard with UPF 50+ rated fabric for the ultimate sun protection. Zappos also has a great pareo that doubles as a sarong or a dress for just $50.
7 | Sneakers of Summer: For guys, Harley-Davidson’s “Ellis” is a cool canvas sneaker with an iconic silhouette — perfect for concerts, festivals or any kind of summer fun. For girls both big and small, enjoy fun in the sun with SUNS Shoes! They not only change color in the sun, the company’s mission is about more than stylish footwear – it’s about brightening someone’s day and making the world a kinder place. Love!
8 | Best Beach Blankets: This blanket tote is perfect for any outing — it’s reversible, zips into a convenient carry tote with an adjustable strap and extra-large pocket, plus it’s machine washable. Perfect for the park, beach, little league games or wherever you may need it.
9 | Float Fun for Your Drinks: Sip beach-inspired drinks in style by the pool! Inflatable drink holders come in a variety of festive styles. Each pack includes three extra buoyant rafts that won’t tip over. Great for pools, hot tubs, lakes, oceans and more!
10 | After Sun Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel: This ultra-cooling cream gel by Korres provides long-lasting comfort immediately upon application. It hydrates the skin, relieving excessive heat and stinging.
11 | Instant Tan: Use St. Tropez’s instant tanning mist for an airbrushed effect and a natural-looking, bronzed glow that lasts for up to 24 hours. Washes off with soap and water.
