Best skin protection from the sun
The best way to enjoy sun tanning safely and protect your skin from potential sun burns is combination of shade, clothing and sunscreen. Severe sun burns or – God forbid – skin cancer are not topics of this site, since awareness of skin protection importance is spread away. Instinctively we have the need to protect our body exposed to the sun.
Best sun protection clothing
When there’s no shade around, on the beach, and you basically like to be sun exposed and enjoy sunlight, the great way to protect your skin is wearing loose clothes (lightweight fabrics – cotton or linen) – long sleeved shirts or long beach dresses and kimonos. It will, also, makes you look amazing.
Best sun protection hats
For the highest protection choose the hat with broad brim that fit your head as well as your life style. Besides sun protection, of your face and neck, wearing a hat on the beach prevents headache (this is my case!).
Also, protects your hair from drying and burning.
The Best hair sun protection
What I’ve discovered works for the best hair protection, no matter is it pre sun or after sun care, is virgin coconut oil (after sun you can use hair musk based on coconut oil or you can DIY using a jaw you brought with you on holiday. You can also use it on your face).
If your hair is long, you can apply coconut oil at the ends and make a bun or braids. It protects your hair from the sun and salt, making a barrier between your hair and salt/sun rays.
Waring a hat is the best natural sun protection, as mentioned.
Best sun protection sunglasses
When you choose sunglasses, besides the trustworthy supplier, you should pay attention if there are labels
* UV 400 label and/or
*100% UV protection
Choose the ones you like most.
Best sun protection sunscreen
SPF means ‘Sun Protection Factor’, ability to filter out ultraviolet B radiation (UVB). The SPF indicates how much UVB radiation is blocked. SPF numbers range from 2 to more than 70.
Higher number means stronger protection.
Kids and light skinned people should use high SPF, all the others at least 15SPF.
With a proper skin care you will prolong skin aging, as well.
